Kelly Preston shares her silent birthing experience and enjoys a date night with husband John Travolta.

Kelly is out promoting her new film "Casino Jack" and stopped by the "Today" show to talk about the movie and her new son Benjamin.  Kelly explained her silent birthing process, which was first talked about after Katie Holmes gave birth to Suri using the Scientology method.  Kelly shared: "everyone attending the birth should refrain from spoken words as much as possible … chatty doctors and nurses, shouts to 'PUSH, PUSH' and loud or laughing remarks to 'encourage' are avoided. Silent birth is basically just no words as much as possible. If you need to moan, if you need to cry out … of course that's normal. But, it's just bringing them in, in as peaceful and gentle a way as possible."

She credits this process with her children's calm dispositions: "My kids have always been amazing. Just very calm, very peaceful, happy and I absolutely know it's very much because of that."

Kelly and John enjoyed a date night out at Mr. Chow last night with Forest Whitaker and his wife.
