Actress Kelly Preston died on Sunday July 12 two years following her breast cancer diagnosis. She was 57 years old.

Preston's husband John Travolta confirmed his wife's death in an IG post. The couple were married in Paris in 1991. They had three children together. In January 2009 their son Jett died after a seizure at the age of 16.

"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.  My family and I will forever be grateful to her doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center, all the medical centers that have helped, as well as her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side. Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while.  But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal.

All my love."

Travolta and Preston met while filming "The Experts" in 1988.
