John Travolta may be one of the most famous actors in Hollywood, but underneath that celebrity exterior, he’s just your average embarrassing dad.
Host Ellen DeGeneres asked the actor, and Ella, who was sitting in the audience with mom Kelly Preston, if she is currently dating. Travolta didn’t even give his daughter a chance to respond before answering himself.
“No, no, no. I don’t interfere with that,” he said. “And, you know, I’m saving her because she has two guys that she hangs out with. I don’t ask anything about what they say or do with each other.”
Preston chimed in, admitting that she knows everything about her daughter, and confirmed Ella isn’t dating.
But the teen didn’t get off that easy. Aside from her parents discussing her dating life on national TV, DeGeneres also shared a photo from Ella’s first appearance on the show — she was just 9 years old — and then brought her outside to parallel park (the worst!) for the first time in an old boat a big old car.
