Rep: Rumors Of John Travolta & Kelly Preston Expecting Twins Are ‘Totally False’

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Could it be a double dose of baby news for John Travolta and Kelly Preston?
Not so, a rep for the couple has told Access Hollywood.
According to a report by Star Magazine on Wednesday, the star couple – who announced last week that they were expecting a “new addition” to their family – would be welcoming not one, but two, new babies to their family.
“They were ecstatic when they thought they were having just one baby,” a source reportedly told the tabloid. “Now that there will be two, they can barely contain their happiness!”
However, in a statement to Access Hollywood later in the day on Wednesday, a rep for John and Kelly shot down the report.
“Totally false,” the rep told Access. “It’s not true. They are not having twins.”
John and Kelly announced via statements on each of the star’s personal Web sites on May 18 that they were “expecting,” although neither statement ever confirmed an actual pregnancy.
“It’s impossible to keep a secret… especially as wonderful as this,” the family wrote in a statement posted on both John and Kelly’s sites at the time. “We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family.”
At the time, Star magazine reported Kelly was three months pregnant.
John, 56, and Kelly, 47, have a 10-year-old daughter, Ella Bleu.
The couple’s first child – their teenage son, Jett, succumbed to a “seizure disorder” while the family was vacationing in the Bahamas over New Year’s 2009.
