John Travolta has always been a doting dad, but he’s really been spoiling his daughter, Ella, ever since the tragic death of his son, Jett, last January.

Of course, people noticed him, but he didn’t seem to care, because he was only concerned about making her happy.” All of that special attention apparently worked on Ella, who recently made her film debut in dad’s new movie, Old Dogs, in which her mother, Kelly Preston, also stars. “She seemed to be a real daddy’s girl,” says the witness. “It was clear that she adored him.”
