John Travolta sure is proud of his only daughter’s singing career as he took to social media on Wednesday to support the beauty.
‘That’s my baby girl. I love you,’ wrote the Saturday Night Fever actor in Ella Travolta’s comment box of her post.
The daughter of John and the late Kelly Preston – who passed away in July 2020 – was singing a song from her new EP.

‘I wanted to share a bit of a new song on my upcoming EP! I hope you like it,’ shared the budding vocal star.
The star had on a plain black top as she wore her dark brunette hair down over her shoulders with minimal makeup allowing her natural beauty to shine through.
In November she announced she was working on new music.
‘There is something I’ve been working on for the past year that is very dear to my heart,’ Ella captioned a video.
She has the looks, the voice and the skills: ‘I wanted to share a bit of a new song on my upcoming EP! I hope you like it,’ shared the budding vocal star

Proud dad John, 67, jumped right into his daughter’s Instagram comments to reveal his joy.
‘I’m so very proud of you Ella, it’s amazing,’ the Pulp Fiction actor wrote. ‘Your thrilled Dad!’ The proud papa also added three red heart emojis.
Ella wrote back, ‘Thank you daddy, I love you!’

Among Ella’s 600K Instagram followers are musician Tommy Lee and his comedian wife Brittany Furlan. Tommy commented on the post writing, ‘a HIT kiddo!!! A HIT!!!!!!!’ Meanwhile Furlan sent four heart-eye emojis.
This isn’t the first time Travolta has publicly praised his daughter. In 2019 the actor had shared with PEOPLE just how proud he was of Ella.
‘She is her own person. She is gracious, generous, poised, graceful and gorgeous. I don’t know how she came to be, and I don’t take any credit other than just adoring her,’ the proud dad said. ‘And maybe that’s a valid contribution.’
The family as it was: Kelly Preston and John with Ella at the Oscars Governors Ball at Hollywood & Highland Center in LA in 2013
The sweet exchange between father and daughter comes after the family spent Thanksgiving together, just over a year after the death of Travolta’s wife and Ella’s mom, Kelly Preston.
Travolta also shares 11-year-old son Benjamin with Preston, who died in 2020 at the age of 57, following a two-year battle with breast cancer.
The pair had three children: Jett, born in 1992, Ella Bleu, 21, and Benjamin, 11. While on vacation in 2009, their eldest son Jett died after having a seizure at the age of 16.
