Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have officially announced that their family is about to expand. Taking to Instagram recently, Kourtney delightedly shared the news of her pregnancy with the renowned Blink-182 drummer.
The Announcement During Travis Barker’s Concert
Capturing the hearts of fans, the announcement unfolded during one of Travis’s exhilarating concerts. Amidst the electric atmosphere, Kourtney emerged from the crowd, clutching a sign that bore a simple yet profound message: “Travis, I’m pregnant.” As the crowd erupted in applause, Travis Barker descended into the sea of adoring fans to celebrate with Kourtney, showering her with kisses.
The Couple’s Journey to Parenthood
While their path to parenthood has been open and honest, the couple has been candid about their experience with IVF. In an interview last September, Kourtney revealed the decision to momentarily halt the process. “We started an IVF journey, but I stopped. It was a lot,” she shared. “I took a break to focus on our wedding and getting married.”
In a subsequent episode of The Kardashians’ third season, Kourtney expressed their resolution to conclude their IVF endeavors. She stated, “We are officially done with IVF. We would love a baby more than anything, but I just really believe in what God has in store for us. If that’s a baby, I believe that it will happen.”
Kourtney also disclosed that despite freezing seven of her eggs, the survival rate was disheartening. “Most [eggs] didn’t survive, [and none of them] made it to an embryo,” she revealed. Clarifying the misconception surrounding egg freezing as a fail-safe measure, she emphasized, “The freezing of the eggs isn’t guaranteed. I think that’s a misunderstanding. People do it thinking that it’s like a safety net, and it’s not.”
Expanding the Family
However, fate smiled upon them as they conceived naturally—a testament to their unwavering optimism. “Whatever is meant to be,” Kourtney shared on the show. “Being happy is most important, and being a good parent to my kids.”
Kourtney, who shares three children—Mason, 13; Penelope, 10; and Reign, 8—with her ex-boyfriend Scott Disick, is ready to embark on a new chapter of motherhood alongside Travis Barker, who has three children—Landon, 19; Alabama, 17; and stepdaughter Atiana, 24—with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler.
