John Travolta celebrated his daughter Ella’s 21st birthday with a rare photo of her posted to his Instagram.
“Happy 21st birthday to the most beautiful, kind, human being and artist I know,” Travolta captioned the picture shared on Saturday. “Your dad adores you! ❤️”
Many fans noticed how much she resembles the famed actor.
“Gorgeous girl, look so much like ur dad,” commented one follower.
“John she looks soooooo much like you,” observed another. “Happy 21st Birthday to your beloved daughter! She is gorgeous!”
“Happy Birthday to your baby girl John,” commented a fan. “She’s definitely a beautiful young lady. ❤️”
It was Ella’s first birthday without her mom, Kelly Preston, who died over the summer at age 57 after a two-year battle with breast cancer.
“She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many. Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered,” the “Face/Off” actor wrote at the time of her passing.
Following Preston’s death, Ella honored her “courageous” mother in a post on social media.
“I have never met anyone as courageous, strong, beautiful and loving as you,” Ella wrote on Instagram.
“Anyone who is lucky enough to have known you or to have ever been in your presence will agree that you have a glow and a light that never ceases to shine and that makes anyone around you feel instantly happy. Thank you for being there for me no matter what.”
Travolta and Preston, who were married for 28 years, met while filming 1988’s “The Experts.”
