John Travolta and his family decided to spend the Fourth of July in the American way, watching baseball between the New York Yankees and Cincinnati Reds in New York City. Seventy-year-old actor was joined by his daughter, Ella Bleu, 24, and son Benjamin, 13, to watch this typically American game at Yankee Stadium among the people.

The day was captured in a spirited video in Travolta’s Instagram post. In the opening scenes, the renowned "Cash Out" actor is captured aboard a plane, expressing his excitement: "on his way to see the Yankees play the Reds" and he has "all his friends with him." As the video progresses, one gets to see Travolta and Ella Bleu sitting cozily side by side while the viewers get to see a shot of other fans enjoying the game.

The song that played in the background of this New York scene was none other than Frank Sinatra and "New York, New York." Yankees lost the match to the Reds with a score of 8-4, but people did not lose their cheerful disposition.

Travolta and his kids were happy with the exciting fireworks display that lit the evening as part of the jubilation. In line with the celebration of the said occasion, Travolta commented on his fitting patriotic mood and said, "Happy 4th of July, everyone," with the said video post.

Peanut Joins Travolta Family

Adding to the celebratory theme, Travolta had recently reminisced about a significant family moment: the adoption of their dog, Peanut. On June 22, he shared the old photo from the Oscars in March of 2022 showing the moment the family introduced Peanut, the then little puppy.

Travolta was wearing a burgundy suit and was twinning with Peanut as he penned, "She’s brought the biggest joy to our family." Looking back to this nostalgic share, especially the Oscars tribute to the late legendary actress Betty White, who died in December 2021.

While presenting Peanut, who was named Mac and Cheese initially, to the viewers, Jamie Lee Curtis called for adopting pets in honor of White. Curtis said, "The greatest gift you could give Betty White is to open your heart and your home and adopt a rescue dog just like Mac and Cheese from Paw Works." After this tender moment, the audience saw that Travolta’s son Benjamin changed his mind to adopt Peanut.

He expressed his gratitude in an Instagram post: "Ben adopted this dog from last night's Oscar tribute to Betty White. Thank you @curtisleejamie & @pawworks." This act of adoption was not only a tribute to the memory of White but also a great happiness for the Travolta family and, therefore, one of the happy moments in the lives of all the relatives.
