Ella Travolta, the daughter of iconic actor John Travolta, turned heads this week as she unveiled a chic new hairstyle during her birthday celebrations. Taking to Instagram, Ella shared a captivating snapshot of herself donning a soft-blunt bob, a significant departure from her usually longer locks.

The post, simply captioned “Fresh cut grass,” not only revealed her sophisticated transformation but also underscored a milestone moment as she celebrated turning 24 on April 3. John Travolta, at 70, didn't miss a beat in expressing his admiration for his daughter's new look, leaving a heartwarming comment, “Ella, this is a stunning photo.

I love it!” His enthusiasm didn't stop there; the "Pulp Fiction" star also took the opportunity to share the photo in a heartfelt birthday tribute to Ella, highlighting the special bond they share. Ella's decision to switch up her look is a nod to her late mother, Kelly Preston, who also favored longer hairstyles.

Preston's passing in 2020 from breast cancer marked a profound loss for the Travolta family. John has since been devotedly raising Ella and their son Benjamin, 13, navigating the challenges of parenthood with grace following the tragic loss of their eldest son, Jett, in 2009.

Ella's Artistic Journey

Carrying forward her parents' artistic legacy, Ella has been making strides in both music and acting. She notably appeared alongside her father and stars Morgan Freeman and Brendan Fraser in the 2019 thriller “The Poison Rose”.

Ella's enthusiasm for collaborative projects with her dad was evident in her remarks to People magazine last year, expressing eagerness for future joint endeavors, which might include another film or project. Ella's foray into the world of acting began at the tender age of 7, with her debut in the 2009 comedy “Old Dogs”.

Reflecting on her early experiences, John Travolta shared on “The Talk” in 2019 how Ella impressively handled a challenging scene with poise and talent, earning applause from the crew. Her father's pride in her capabilities and character was palpable when he described Ella as “gracious, generous, posed, graceful and gorgeous” in a 2019 People interview.

Ella's upcoming role in the film “Get Lost,” inspired by “Alice in Wonderland,” and her ventures into music highlight her multifaceted talent and dedication to the arts, reflecting her parents' influence.
