The pair are said to be "ecstatic" about their new baby, who was born in a Florida hospital on Tuesday, reported People magazine online.
"John, Kelly and their daughter Ella Bleu are ecstatic and very happy about the newest member of the family. Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully," said the Grease star's spokesperson.
Travolta, 56, and 48-year-old Preston confirmed last month they were having a boy, and had already decided on the name Benjamin before the birth.
The pair have welcomed their new son into the world less than two years after their eldest son Jett, 16, suffered a fatal seizure in January 2009 during a family holiday in the Bahamas.
Confirming Preston's pregnancy in May, the couple had called it a "miracle".
" We want to be the first to share this great news with everyone that we are expecting a new addition to our family. We tried for several years, and we didn't think it was going to happen for us. This is a miracle, and we feel blessed," they had said in a joint statement.
The pair have a 12-year-old daughter Ella Bleu, who had accompanied her famous father during his recent trip to India.
