In a statement shared with Fox News, the Golden Globe winner spoke on the opportunity to perform alongside his daughter in the upcoming big game ad.
“Super Bowl for me is a major yearly celebration,” Travolta noted. “When Scotts Miracle-Gro asked me to do an ad for the Super Bowl with my daughter I was thrilled, especially since we were asked to dance together.”

“We had a blast honoring the backyard along with all of these wonderful people, in our “Sunday Best” for Super Bowl Sunday,” he added.
Preston, who starred in movies such as “Jerry Maguire” and “Twins,” died in July at the age of 57 after battling breast cancer for two years. Travolta was the one to announce Preston’s passing. They were married for 19 years.
“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,” Travolta wrote on Instagram one day after her passing. “She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many. “

He continued: “My family and I will forever be grateful to her doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center, all the medical centers that have helped, as well as her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side. Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while. But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal. All my love, JT.”
Preston is also survived by her and Travolta’s son, Benjamin, 10. Their son Jett died in 2009 at the age of 16.
