It's a special day for John Travolta's family, as his eldest daughter, Ella Bleu Travolta, is celebrating her birthday.

Ella is officially 23 years old, and her dad made sure she felt all of the love, sharing an adorable tribute to her with his social media followers.

The aspiring singer is the oldest of the Travolta children. John and his late wife Kelly Preston had three children together: their eldest, Jett, passed away aged 16 in 2009 after suffering from a seizure, and Ella's little brother, Ben, is 12.  John and Kelly wed in 1991; she died at 57 in 2020 following a breast cancer battle.

For his daughter's 23rd birthday, John took to Instagram to share a sweet tribute to the birthday girl, sharing a video montage of the celebrations.

For the special occasion, the Grease actor took his two kids to Disney World in Orlando, not far from the private community they live in – known for its homes with airplane strips – in Clearwater, Florida.

The video montage first shows a clip of Ella enjoying dinner with her family, blowing out the three candles atop a trio of colorful cupcakes after making a wish.

Fittingly set to Henry Mancini's "Breakfast at Tiffany's," John also included clips of the family-of-three walking around Disney World at night, and enjoying stunning fireworks as well as a view of the iconic Cinderella castle lit up in blue.

What a wonderful father you are," as well as: "Ella I wish you the best, beautiful girl."

Though it is unclear whether Ella went to college, she is currently an aspiring singer, and she has released two singles, "Dizzy" and "No thank you."
