John Travolta paid tribute to his late wife, Kelly Preston this Mother's Day.

On Sunday, May 14, the Grease star shared a clip of Preston, who passed in 2020 due to breast cancer, as she held up a homemade box that read "Mom" in big blue letters via Instagram. In the footage, the actress smiled wide and exclaimed, "Oh my god" at the box, which looked to be full of goodies.

As OK! previously reported, the death of Preston was very difficult on the Mad City star. Prior to her passing, the couple had been married for 28 years and shared a daughter Ella Bleu, 22, and a son, Ben, 12.

Back in February, a source shared that Travolta vowed to never date again after the 57-year-old’s tragic death.

"John still considers himself married and says he will stay loyal to Kelly until the day he dies," the insider told Radar. "It's hands-off when it comes to dating. It's sad, but he's essentially taken a vow of celibacy for the rest of his life."

They explained that the Pulp Fiction alum could not fathom "ever falling in love again." "He says it would be a betrayal of Kelly's memory," the source claimed.
