    If Tom Cruise isn't the most recognizable face of Scientology, John Travolta is. He and wife Kelly Preston are both church members.

    John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston are welcoming a new addition to their family.

    The Travolta family – John, Kelly and daughter Ella – confirmed reports that their family is set to grow, with a post on John's official Web site,

    "It's impossible to keep a secret… especially as wonderful as this," the family wrote in a statement posted on Tuesday afternoon.

    "We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family," the post concluded.

    The family signed their note, "Love, John, Kelly and Ella."

    John, 56, and Kelly, 47, lost their first child – their teenage son Jett, who succumbed to a "seizure disorder" while the family was vacationing in the Bahamas over New Year's 2009.

    The family's happy news comes one day after it was confirmed that that two small dogs, owned by the Travoltas, were killed last week at Bangor International Airport in Maine.

    "Two small dogs on leashes were taken for walk by someone who is not a family member. An airport service pickup truck was approaching the airplane to service the aircraft and did not see the dogs. Unfortunately the dogs were struck and killed," a rep for the airport said in a statement to Access on Tuesday.
