Kourtney Kardashian, the reality star at 44, and her husband, Travis Barker, aged 47, have some thrilling news on the horizon—they’re expecting their first child together. For Kourtney, this will be her fourth child, and for Travis, his third. Their expanding family includes children from their previous relationships.
The Kardashians star has three kids, Mason (13), Penelope (11), and Reign (eight), from her former partner Scott Disick. Meanwhile, Travis Barker shares two children, Alabama (17) and Landon (19), as well as stepdaughter Atiana De La Hoya (24), from his previous marriage to Shanna Moakler.
Alabama Barker’s Excitement
Amidst this exciting news, Alabama Barker, Travis’s 17-year-old daughter, expressed her enthusiasm about the upcoming addition to the Barker-Kardashian clan. She shared her perspective at a recent BeautyCon event in Los Angeles, highlighting the joy that comes with welcoming a new family member. Alabama conveyed her excitement, emphasizing that getting to know a new person is both fun and exhilarating.
Alabama’s mother, Shanna Moakler, has also shown her support and approval of Kourtney’s pregnancy. Shortly after Kourtney’s pregnancy announcement, the latter expressed her excitement for the couple, wishing them a wonderful experience in bringing a new life into the world. It’s heartening to see a harmonious dynamic within the extended family.
Challenges Along the Way
While the couple has received ample support from their loved ones, Kourtney’s pregnancy journey has had its share of challenges. Earlier this month, Travis had to postpone scheduled Blink-182 concerts due to a medical emergency involving Kourtney and their baby boy. Kourtney was rushed to the hospital, and the incident prompted an outpouring of concern and well-wishes.
Kourtney’s Health Scare
Kourtney herself shared an emotional statement on Instagram, expressing her gratitude for the doctors who saved her baby’s life and acknowledging Travis for his unwavering support. She also shared her newfound understanding and respect for mothers who have faced similar challenges during pregnancy.
Kourtney and Travis’s journey as a couple has been marked by love and commitment. They were friends and neighbors for over a decade before officially dating in 2021. Their engagement followed in October of the same year, leading to a legal marriage in April 2022 in Santa Barbara, followed by a lavish wedding in Italy the next month.
