Kourtney Kardashian Barker recently opened up about a truly harrowing moment during her pregnancy with her fourth child. The 44-year-old founder of Lemme and her husband, Travis Barker, 47, the drummer of Blink-182, took to social media to share the details of a recent “medical emergency” they faced, which has now been confirmed to be a pregnancy complication.
In heartfelt posts, both Kourtney and Travis expressed their gratitude to the medical professionals who played a crucial role in saving their baby’s life. Kourtney shared a touching black-and-white photo of their intertwined hands and wrote about her immense appreciation for the doctors who stepped in during this critical time. She also expressed her deep gratitude to her husband, Travis, who left his tour to be by her side during this ordeal. Kourtney acknowledged her mother’s unwavering support as well.
What makes this story even more poignant is that Kourtney, who has had three relatively easy pregnancies in the past, found herself in a situation she was not prepared for – facing the fear of urgent fetal surgery. She emphasized that unless you’ve experienced something similar, it’s challenging to grasp the overwhelming fear that comes with it. Kourtney now has a newfound understanding and respect for mothers who’ve had to fight for their babies’ lives while still in the womb.
With a tone of relief and gratitude, she concluded her post by praising God for the blessing of walking out of the hospital with her baby boy safe inside her womb.
Travis Barker, too, took to Twitter to express his relief and gratitude, stating that he flew home for a life-threatening emergency surgery for their baby and was thankful that it went well. He also thanked everyone for their support and announced the resumption of his tour.
Do you know that Bruce Springsteen, the legendary rock star, had to make a difficult decision? He recently announced that he’s deferring all his concerts scheduled for September 2023 due to health concerns:
The couple’s revelation came after Blink-182 announced the postponement of their European tour dates due to an “urgent family matter,” prompting Travis to return to the United States.
This baby is the fourth child for both Kourtney and Travis. Kourtney shares three children – sons Reign Aston (8), Mason Dash (13), and daughter Penelope Scotland (11) – with her ex, Scott Disick. Travis has three children of his own with his ex, Shanna Moakler – son Landon (19), daughter Alabama (17), and stepdaughter Atiana (24).
Kourtney’s pregnancy was first revealed in June, during her husband’s concert when she held up a handwritten sign. The couple confirmed the news by sharing a video of the heartwarming moment on Instagram.
Kourtney and Travis began dating in 2021 after being friends for years and got engaged in October of the same year. They had a spontaneous Las Vegas wedding without an official marriage license in April 2022, followed by a legal marriage in Santa Barbara. They later had an official wedding ceremony in Italy in May 2022, surrounded by red roses and their beloved children.
Their pregnancy journey has been marked by ups and downs, including their decision to stop IVF treatment earlier in the year. Despite the challenges, they’ve remained hopeful and are now looking forward to welcoming their new addition to the family. Kourtney expressed her belief in whatever plan God has in store for them, including the possibility of having a baby.
