Did Kelly Preston Really Give Birth?

Kelly PrestonJust in time for Thanksgiving, John Travolta and Kelly Preston welcomed their baby boy to the world Tuesday evening.

Benjamin arrived weighing 8 pounds, 3 ounces at a hospital in Florida, and the family is said to be doing well.

"John, Kelly, and their daughter Ella Bleu are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family," a rep for the couple told RadarOnline.com. "Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully."

But whether it was Preston who actually delivered the baby is the question many are asking. Her whole pregnancy -- or lack thereof -- has been the source of many rumors and much speculation.

The rep's statement is pretty vague and doesn't mention Preston actually giving birth, which doesn't do much to squash rumors for those who are looking for any signs of some pregnancy conspiracy theory.

But that could be for any number of reasons, and it's doubtful the couple would go to such great lengths to fake a pregnancy. 

At Preston's age, 47, it is unlikely that she became pregnant on her own -- unlikely, but not impossible -- so the use of fertility assistance may be more accurate.

But really, whether they used IVF or a surrogate, it doesn't matter now because they have a healthy baby in their arms.

Talk about having something to be thankful for. This family has been through so much.

It's been almost two years now since they lost their son Jett. He died in January 2009 after suffering a seizure while at their vacation home on Grand Bahama island.

It's hard to imagine how anyone can go on after losing a child, but so many families do.

For them the holidays can be especially difficult as they mourn and miss someone they brought into the world with an endless love whose life ended way too early.

But their memories and the strength of the families to go on and to continue to embrace life -- like John Travolta and Kelly Preston -- inspire the rest of us and remind us to be thankful for every second we have with our children -- no matter how they came into our lives.

Congratulations and best Thanksgiving wishes to them. Can't wait to see pictures of the little guy!

Do you think Kelly Preston gave birth to their new baby? Does it matter if she did or didn't?
