Kelly Preston has revealed she delivered her new baby in accordance with Scientology beliefs - in SILENCE.
Baby Benjamin was born in November, and is Kelly and husband John Travolta's third child. Their oldest son, Jett, tragically died two years ago. After his death, Travolta confirmed he was autistic. They also have a daughter, Ella, 10.
The 48-year-old described Benjamin's birth during an interview on America's Today show, saying: 'It's just no words as much as possible. If you need to moan, if you cry out or all of that, of course, is normal. But just bringing them in as peaceful and gentle a way as possible.'
She then referred to the controversial Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, explaining: 'L. Ron Hubbard found that the single source of aberration, of psychosomatic illnesses, stress, fears, worry, things like that, have to do with the reactive mind, and in that part of the mind is different words and commands that can come back to affect you later in your life. I'm blessed with, my kids have always been amazing, very calm, very peaceful, happy, and I absolutely know that it's very much because of that.'
She went on to say becoming pregnant in her late forties was a 'miracle':
'I just think any time you get pregnant at this age, it is a miracle. We were sort of blessed with being lucky to still conceive.'
John Travolta recently told Hello! magazine that their new son had given their home 'a renewed spirit and purpose. He's brought us a new beginning.'
