Kelly Travolta Didn't Think About the Risks of Getting Pregnant Later in Life

Kelly Preston "Didn't Consider the Risks" of Getting Pregnant Older; Would You?

John Travolta and Kelly Preston welcomed their third child, Benjamin, in December after three years of trying to conceive. The family's newest addition has helped the couple and their daughter, Ella, 10, cope with the loss of their teenage son, Jett, who died unexpectedly in 2009. During an interview with Natalie Morales, Preston said:

"I didn't (consider this risks). I just considered that it was difficult. I never thought that would be me at all. So, I think we're just really happy that we're so fortunate,"

While putting off pregnancy until later in life isn't uncommon, many women are concerned with the risks.

i can't even read the crap this couple puts out there without being irritated. they are as fake as can be. her husband is a transvestite for starters. and and what about her son from her first marriage? the disabled one that her family is raising without any input from her. that airbrushed People magazine cover was really perfect for this plastic version of a "family".
