Kourtney Kardashian, the former cast member of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” is currently pregnant! This will be her first child with her husband, Travis Barker, as revealed by Page Six.
During a recent Blink-182 concert in Los Angeles, the star of “The Kardashians” shared the exciting news with the audience. As Barker performed on stage, Kardashian held up a sign that said, “Travis I’m pregnant,” followed by a loving kiss between the couple.
Following their grand wedding in Italy surrounded by loved ones, Kourtney Kardashian, who is 44 years old, and her husband Travis Barker, aged 47, are now expecting a child together. The couple openly shared their aspiration to have a baby on Kardashian’s Hulu show, and they have pursued numerous avenues to make it happen. This includes undergoing rounds of IVF (in vitro fertilization) and exploring different herbal remedies in their quest to conceive.
In a May 25 episode of “The Kardashians,” the couple shared that they had previously turned to IVF in their desperate efforts to conceive, but they have now decided to conclude that path.
During the episode, Kourtney Kardashian expressed their shift in perspective, stating, “We are officially done with IVF. We have a strong desire for a baby, but I have faith in what lies ahead for us according to God’s plan. If that includes having a baby, then I believe it will happen.”
This upcoming child will be the fourth for Kardashian, who already has three children, Mason (13), Penelope (10), and Reign (8), whom she shares with her former partner, Scott Disick.
Travis Barker, in addition to Kourtney Kardashian’s children from her previous relationship, also has children from his ex-wife, Shanna Moakler. He is the father of a son named Landon (19), a daughter named Alabama (17), and a stepdaughter named Atiana (24).
In a previous year, Kardashian expressed her and Barker’s desire to have a baby. Cameras captured their journey as they visited a doctor’s appointment together.
In a trailer for the show, the doctor is seen asking Kardashian for a “sample,” prompting a lighthearted response from the reality star who jokes, “We’ll take our mics off so you don’t get the audio.”
In December, Kourtney Kardashian shared her perspective, stating, “I reached a point where I strongly believed in the importance of timing, especially when it comes to me and Travis… So, I genuinely believe that if it’s truly meant to be, it will happen.”
When discussing the difficulties associated with IVF, Kardashian revealed the significant impact it had on her physical and mental well-being. She expressed, “The hormones. The medications. The need for anesthesia each time. I understand that it works for many people, but it’s just not the right path for me.”
Kardashian’s honest reflection highlights the challenges and personal reasons that led her to choose not to pursue IVF further.
