John Travolta and his pregnant wife Kelly Preston are expecting a baby boy, the stars’ publicist has revealed.

The couple announced it was expecting a third child in May, and Preston, 47, prepared for the impending birth by gathering with loved ones for a baby shower bash at the Beverly Hills Peninsula hotel in Los Angeles on Friday.

Now, Star magazine – the publication that scooped the baby news – has revealed the Travoltas are expecting a son.

The couple lost its first-born son Jett at the beginning of 2009 after he suffered a seizure and died at the family’s retreat in the Bahamas. He was 16.
