To many worldwide, John Travolta is simply one of Hollywood’s greatest actors, but to his daughter, Ella Travolta, the 67-year-old is more than a face on the big screen.
The “Grease” star’s daughter recently honored her father on social media with a touching message that expressed not only her love but respect for the icon.
The 21-year-old’s heartfelt tribute to the Hollywood sensation came alongside a stunning picture of the pair shared on Instagram to commemorate “Father-Daughter Day” on October 10.
Her Father, Her Hero
Ella’s Instagram post captured the famous father and daughter seated side by side with matching smiles on their faces. John was dressed in an all-black ensemble while his daughter wore a chic red dress paired with a leather jacket.
The 21-year-old captioned this beautiful post with the words, “Happy Father-Daughter Day to my hero, my best friend. I love you so much, Daddy.”

Naturally, the young Travolta’s post was well received by fans and celebrities alike, who flooded the comment section with their love for the family.
In the spirit of the occasion, the “Pulp Fiction” actor also shared the same picture on Instagram alongside a sweet tribute to his daughter.
This gorgeous picture of the pair was taken while promoting their film, “Poison Rose,” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” back in 2019.
Mother’s Day Without Kelly
Kelly Preston’s death was a huge blow to the Travolta family, but grief has not stopped them from honoring the late actress’s memory.
Earlier this year, The Blast reported that during the Mother’s Day celebration, Ella and John both shared emotional tributes on Instagram to commemorate the occasion.
Ella posted an adorable childhood picture of herself posing next to her mother alongside a heartfelt caption. The 21-year-old expressed her love and gratitude for all Preston has done for their family. In her words,
“Mama, thank you for all you have done for us and this world. I miss you and love you very much, but your smile, warmth, and love is everlasting.”
John also shared a similar heartwarming post, in which he thanked the late actress for blessing him with three wonderful children. He also expressed how much he and the kids missed Preston.
Celebrating Each Milestone As A Family
The Travolta family have experienced their fair share of downs in life, but they never let that stop them from celebrating their wins.
The Blast previously reported that the “Hairspray” actor had a new reason to beat his chest proudly. The 67-year-old’s daughter was craving her name in Hollywood’s hall of fame.
The upcoming star landed the lead role in the film “Get Lost.” This fantastic news came not long after Ella turned 21, a milestone her father proudly celebrated on Instagram.
The actor shared a picture of his daughter wearing a denim jacket and a radiant smile for the camera. This post was captioned with a message of love in which John described Ella as his pride and joy.
This touching birthday post could be seen as the doting father repaying his daughter for the heartfelt birthday tribute she gave him in February for his 67th birthday.
The Travolta family enjoys celebrating their successes from birthdays to landing film roles, no matter how big or small the occasion.
