John Travolta and Kelly Preston are elated and eagerly waiting for the arrival of their new family addition, a son who will be named Benjamin. When Benny finally decides it’s time to meet his makers, he won’t get a round of applause or even words of encouragement upon his arrival. All he’ll get is silence!
Why? Travolta and Preston have decided to go forward with a controversial “silent” Scientology birth.
“The couple will follow the church’s guidelines during delivery,” a family insider confirmed. “No music, no talking and no screaming will be allowed during the pains of labor. Also their new son cannot be prodded for medical tests or spoken to for the first seven days of his life. You don’t want to do anything that will haunt them for the rest of their lives.”
Preston tried this technique with daughter Ella Bleu, now 10 years old, but couldn’t handle it after 13 hours of labor. She reported told her husband, “Throw me in the car. I want an epidural!”
“This time around, Kelly is determined to follow her church’s guidelines,” a source close to Preston revealed. “Everyone who will be present at the birth has been given clear instructions to not make a sound.”
