Kelly Preston began her modeling career at 16. In 1983, she had a role in her first film 10 to Midnight but gained recognition after starring in Mischief. She was also famed for playing in Secret Admirer, SpaceCamp, Twins, Jerry Maguire, For Love of the Game, Holy Man, Nothing to Lose, What a Girl Wants, Broken Bridges plus Old Dogs.
In 1985-1987, Kelly was a spouse of Kevin Gage. In 1987, she got acquainted with John Travolta on the set of The Experts, but romantic feelings emerged between them a bit later. John popped the question on New Year’s Eve in 1990 and espoused his sweetheart on September 5, 1991, in Paris. But as the wedding was held by a scientology minister, the lovebirds needed to have an official ceremony on September 12. Their firstborn Jett drew his first breath in 1992 and was followed by Ella in 2000 and Benjamin in 2010.
Unfortunately, Preston died in 2020 after a two-year battle with breast cancer.
A curious fact: in 1989, Charlie Sheen proposed to Kelly, but they never married.
