John Travolta has been doing plenty of looking back recently, having channelled his breakthrough Saturday Night Fever role in a Christmas-themed credit card advert.

And now he's been raiding the home video archive to celebrate his youngest child Benjamin's 13th birthday.

Travolta posted an adorable montage on Instagram to mark the happy occasion, set to Stevie Wonder's 'You Are The Sunshine of My Life'.

"I can’t believe my baby boy is now a teenager," Travolta captioned the video.

"Ben turns 13 today. I love you my son!"

The video features Benjamin playing with his pet dogs, singing into an oversized strawberry syrup bottle and other heartwarming moments.

Benjamin is one of three children Travolta had with his wife Kelly Preston, who died of breast cancer in 2020 at the age of 57.

Their first child, Jett, tragically died at the age of 16 after suffering a seizure while on holiday in the Bahamas.

They had one daughter, Ella Bleu, who is ten years older than Benjamin.

Earlier this year, Travolta posted another adorable family video montage to celebrate Ella Bleu's 23rd birthday.

He captioned it: "Here's a song for you on your birthday my dearest Ella! I love you with all my heart!! Your Dad!!"
