John Travolta and Kelly Preston are joyfully welcoming new baby son Benjamin, who was born in Florida yesterday, AP reports. The couple and daughter Ella Bleu "are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family," and mother and baby Ben are "healthy and doing beautifully," says their publicist.

"The couple will follow the church's guidelines during delivery," a family insider tells me. "No music, no talking and no screaming will be allowed during the pains of labor. Also their new son cannot be prodded for medical tests or spoken to for the first seven days of his life. You don't want to do anything that will haunt them for the rest of their lives."!

Isn't it kind of odd that their other son is never mentioned in articles. Ever? I even read one that said something along the lines of this is their second child... Where did the other one go?
