John Travolta vowed to always remember his wife Kelly Preston's "love and life" following her tragic death in 2020.

And he is doing exactly that.

The beloved Grease star took to Instagram over the weekend to share a sweet tribute to his late wife on what would have been her 60th birthday.

Alongside a throwback photo of himself and Kelly, the 68-year-old actor wrote: "Happy birthday to my favourite dance partner! We love you and miss you Kelly.."

Preston passed away in July 2020 after privately battling breast cancer for two years prior.

Travolta wrote an emotional post on Instagram confirming that his wife of 28 years had died.

"It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many."

As well as John, Kelly is survived by her 22-year-old daughter Ella and 11-year-old son Benjamin.

The couple's 16-year-old son Jett tragically died in January 2009 after suffering a seizure.
