John Travolta's representative has dismissed reports his wife Kelly Preston is in labour - branding the story "100 per cent false".
The Grease star flew his personal Boeing 707 to Sydney last Monday (08Nov10) to help bosses at Qantas airline celebrate the company's 90th anniversary.
It was reported on Sunday (14Nov10) that the actor had rushed back to the U.S. to be at his wife's side as she prepared for the birth of their new child.
However, a publicist for the star is adamant the reports are wrong, insisting Travolta had always been slated to return home over the weekend (13-14Nov10).
The rep says, "This story is 100 per cent false. She's not in labour. John is in route (sic) back to the U.S. as was always the plan for him to return this weekend."
Preston is due to give birth later this month (Nov10) and the baby will be a little brother for their 10-year-old daughter, Ella Bleu. The Travoltas lost their 16-year-old son Jett after he suffered a fatal seizure at their holiday home in the Bahamas in January, 2009.
