John Travolta has rushed home from a promotional trip in Australia after receiving word that pregnant wife Kelly Preston has gone into labor.
The 56-year-old Grease star was due in Perth for a charity event but abruptly cancelled to pilot his own flight back to the United States.
Travolta made good on his promise that if his Preston "goes into labor, I'll have to take the plane straight back on a 22-hour flight''.
"If I get a call, I may have to say adios," he told reporters earlier this week.
Preston, 47, wasn't expected to give birth to the couple's third child for another three weeks.
The couple has already named their much anticipated baby boy Benjamin.
