iVillage Woman of the Week: Kelly Preston

Each week, we pick one woman who's done something to make us proud. This week we're congratulating Kelly Preston for continuing to cope with her teenage son’s tragic death with courage and poise -- and for embracing motherhood, once again, at the age of 47!

Preston and husband John Travolta announced this week that they're expecting another addition to their family in late fall 2010. After Jett Travolta’s tragic death in 2009, Preston and Travolta understandably did their best to remain outside the scope of the public eye -- Preston dropping a conference speech last summer and Travolta declining public appearances to promote his movies. The couple publicly announced the pregnancy on each of their official websites, saying they wanted to be the “first to share this great news with everyone.”

Only a year and half after Jett’s death, Preston is embracing life graciously and sharing her wonderful news. Losing a child is devastating, but with the whole world watching must be far more difficult. We're thrilled that Preston has decided to share her new joy with fans and supporters alike.
