Earlier this month, John put on his dancing shoes to recreate some of his famous dance moves from the hit movie Grease with his daughter for the new Super Bowl ad to promote Scotts & Miracle-Gro.
John’s birthday on Thursday was his first without his wife Kelly, whom he met while filming The Experts in 1987 and tied the knot with in 1991.
She died of breast cancer at the age of 57 in July 2020 after secretly battling the disease for two years.
The couple shared three children – Ella and Benjamin, as well as Jett.

In 2009, Jett tragically passed away at 16 during a Christmas vacation in the Bahamas.
Jett had autism and suffered regular seizures, and his death certificate attributed the cause of death to a seizure.
This past October, John wished his late wife Kelly Preston a happy birthday on what would’ve been her 58th.
He shared a picture of the couple on their wedding day, next to a picture of his parents tying the knot.
The Grease actor captioned the touching tribute: “Happy Birthday hon!
“I found this photo of my mom and dad‘s wedding. It was nice to see ours alongside theirs.”
He ended the post with a sweet farewell: “All my love, John.”
