Like typical expectant parents, John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston are busy getting ready for the arrival of their son Benjamin. But they’re not just washing onesies and picking out cribs – John and Kelly are preparing for the controversial ‘silent’ Scientology birth.
“The couple will follow the church’s guidelines during delivery,” a source close to the family says. “No music, no talking and no screaming will be allowed during the pains of labor. Also their new son cannot be prodded for medical tests or spoken to for the first seven days of his life. You don’t want to do anything that will haunt them for the rest of their lives.”
In an interview a few years ago Kelly said she tried to follow the church’s guidelines during the birth of daughter Ella Bleu, but after 13 hours of labor she had had enough and yelled at her husband, “Throw me in the car. I want an epidural!” Traffic prohibited them from making the trip, however.
“This time around, Kelly is determined to follow her church’s guidelines,” the source says. “Everyone who will be present at the birth has been given clear instructions to not make a sound.”
