John Travolta has shared a birthday message for his late wife Kelly Preston on what would've been her 58th birthday.

It comes three months on from the actor's death from breast cancer, which was announced in July after she privately battled the disease for two years.

To celebrate his wife's birthday, Travolta shared a photo of his parents, Salvatore and Helen Travolta, at their wedding alongside one of him and Preston at their 1991 ceremony. Both couples smile at the camera in the snaps posted to Instagram.

The 66-year-old wrote: "Happy Birthday hon! I found this photo of my mom and dad‘s wedding. It was nice to see ours alongside theirs.

"All my love, John."

The couple had three children during the course of their marriage, Ella, 20, and Benjamin, nine, as well as son Jett who died aged 16 in 2009 following a seizure.

In August, the Grease star posted a video of he and daughter Ella dancing "in memory of momma".
