“She came in this, this gorgeous woman. We had an immediate chemistry," John Travolta said about the first time he met his future wife.
Almost three decades ago, John Travolta and Kelly Preston took each other as husband and wife, and for 28 years they kept their vows of keeping each other happy and loved through the years.
They celebrated their anniversary on September 5 and Kelly Preston shared a heartwarming post dedicated to her husband. "To my dearest Johnny, the most wonderful man I know," she wrote on Instagram. "You have given me hope when I have felt lost, loved me patiently and unconditionally… made me laugh harder than any other human being possible... shared the most beautiful highs and at times lows. You’re a dream Daddio and make life so much fun!! I trust my love with you implicitly... with you I know I will always be okay no matter what happens... I love you forever and completely. Happy 28th Anniversary."
John Travolta replied to the post saying, "I love you so much Kelly! Thank you for all your love and for being such a wonderful wife and mother."
Their story together began on the sets of The Experts, where they felt a connection from the moment the saw each other. But even before they met for the first time, Kelly Preston recalled that a mutual friend told John Travolta a little something about the future of their relationship.
"She told him, 'You’re going to meet this girl and you’re going to fall in love with her, and you’re going to want to get married,'" she told Us Weekly.
Even though Kelly Preston was married at the time, she was destined to meet John Travolta, who said about the first time he laid eyes on her, "She came in this, this gorgeous woman. We had an immediate chemistry."
Through the years 1985 to 1987, Kelly Preston was married to Kevin Gage. According to People, she told host Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live!, "I was not that happily married, let’s put it that way. I was really with the wrong person."
When the right person finally came along, she was able to live out some of the best years with her and raise a family together. She had a number of things to say when she was asked about the best and worst parts of her marriage.
"There’s too many best things,” she gushed and said. "His lips, dancing, fun, laughing. [We dance] all the time, all the time. The kids dance with us, we go out dancing. We love it."
When John Travolta spoke to Closer Weekly about being married to the woman he loves, he said according to UPI, "We really care deeply about each other and we protect each other."
Through the best and through the worst, they have been with each other, holding on even when they tragically lost their 16-year-old boy.
Despite having busy routines, they always take the time to have fun with each other and their children, Ella and Benjamin. "Everyday is date night. It’s a very busy life we have," he said.
To take on the role of a parent becomes all the more special when you have someone you love and trust to share it all with. On Father's Day, Kelly Preston wrote, "Happy Father’s Day to the kindest, most wonderful father, husband and man I know. Your heart knows no bounds and I love you completely."
They don't doubt that they were a perfect match together, as Kelly Preston said, "I think that we were just right together, that we picked the right people and keeping it honest and communicating and checking in with each other. A relationship doesn’t just happen. You have to work at it. You’ve got to keep it fun and that’s what we do."
