In the throwback photo, a young Ella subtly smiled at the camera as she held her younger brother.
Dressed in a long sleeve white shirt, Benjamin appeared to be focusing on something off camera while the picture was being taken.
The 66-year-old actor simply captioned the post: “TBT ‘My babies.'”
Kelly tragically died in July after quietly battling breast cancer.

The Grease actor announced her death in an Instagram post, writing: “It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many.”
He later shared a video of himself dancing with his daughter Ella, 20, to honor of Kelly.
John wrote in the caption: “My daughter @ella.travolta and I dancing in memory of momma. One of Kelly’s favorite things, dancing with me.”
Earlier this month, he celebrated Kelly’s birthday by sharing a photo of the couple on their wedding day, as well as a picture of his parents tying the knot.

“All my love, John.”
Back in 2009, John and Kelly tragically lost their 16-year-old autistic son, Jett, while on a family vacation to the Bahamas.
He died after hitting his head in a bathtub, which caused him to have a seizure.
The pair later welcomed son Benjamin, nine, in 2010.

After losing Kelly, John’s nephew Sam passed away in September at his home in Wisconsin.
His cause of death is not yet known.
Sam’s childhood friend Nick Mavrostomos, a chiropractor based in Bedminster, New Jersey, told The Sun: “He will be greatly missed, but he will always be with us.”
On Wednesday, he shared a snap of himself out to dinner with chef Guy Fieri and other friends.
