John Travolta posts rare photo of son, Benjamin, 8, on Instagram

John Travolta spent Labor Day with his family!

One week after his VMAs mixup with Taylor Swift went viral, the "Saturday Night Fever" actor took to Instagram to share a family photo with his wife, Kelly Preston, and his youngest child, Benjamin, 8.

"Hope everyone is having a safe and happy Labor Day," he captioned the selfie.

Benjamin has made several appearances on his actor father's social media account in the past, though Travolta tends to favor holidays as opportunities to post snaps of his kids, like the selfie he posted on the Fourth of July and a video he posted on Easter.

Travolta and Preston are also parents to daughter, Ella, 19. Their son, Jett, died in 2009 at the age of 16 after suffering a seizure and hitting his head on a bathtub while on vacation with his family in the Bahamas.

Back in April, Preston took to Instagram to honor her late firstborn to commemorate both World Autism Day and what would've been his 27th birthday.

"To my sweet love, Jett... you are in our hearts forever," she captioned a black-and-white photo with her son. "I send love to all of the beautiful autistic children and the wonderful people who love them. May we all shine and grant love and respect to children with special needs."
