John Travolta’s Son Adopts the Puppy from the Betty White Oscars Tribute

John Travolta just welcomed a new (furry) member to the family!

The Pulp Fiction star and his 11-year-old son, Ben, adopted a new pup that was featured in the Betty White tribute at the Oscars. The small brown canine (named Mac N Cheese) was held by Jamie Lee Curtis on stage as she spoke about White’s dedication to animal activism. And now, the pooch has found a nice, warm home with the Travolta family.

Earlier this week, the 68-year-old actor shared a picture of his young son holding the dog on Instagram. He wrote in the caption, “Ben adopted this dog from last night's Oscar tribute to Betty White. Thank you,” and proceeded to tag Curtis and the adoption service, Paw Works.

Curtis reposted the photo on her own Instagram page and said the adoption was a “MAGICAL ending” to the awards ceremony. The Knives Out alum noted that she reconnected with Travolta at the start of the event, who she first worked with on the set of 1985’s Perfect.

“I thought it was so beautiful to see him with her and then today I found out that he and his son, Ben have adopted beautiful little mac & cheese and are taking her home today,” Curtis wrote in the caption. “It is an emotional end and a perfect tribute to Betty White.”  

The animal rescue also celebrated the adoption on their IG page, writing, “On a night of winners and losers, we think Mac N Cheese is the biggest winner of all!”

Bring on the cute puppy pics.
