Fans of Kourtney Kardashian (44) and Travis Barker (47) have been looking forward to the good news for weeks. Now the usually well-informed US magazine “People” reports, citing various sources, that the older sister of superstar Kim Kardashian (43) is said to have given birth. Information about the gender or name of the child as well as the precise date of birth is currently still pending. Neither Kardashian Barker nor Barker have yet made an official statement on the matter.

This is Kourtney Kardashian’s fourth child, and the first with Blink-182 drummer Barker, whom she married in 2022. Kardashian shares children Mason (13), Penelope (11) and Reign (8) with ex-partner Scott Disick (40). Barker is already the father of a twenty-year-old son named Landon and a seventeen-year-old daughter named Alabama. The mother of the children is her ex-wife Shanna Moakler (48).

It wasn’t an easy pregnancy for reality star Kardashian, who is also known for the Hulu series “The Kardashians.” In September, her unborn baby had to be saved through emergency surgery. “I will forever be grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby’s life,” Kardashian wrote in an Instagram post at the time.

In the same post, the 44-year-old described her three previous pregnancies as “easy”, which is why the complications she suffered in her fourth pregnancy shocked her even more. “I have a whole new understanding and respect for the mothers who had to fight for their babies during pregnancy,” Kardashian said.

Her husband Barker had interrupted an ongoing tour with his band Blink-182 and rushed home to his wife’s side. Kardashian then called the 47-year-old her “rock” on Instagram and shared a photo of the couple holding hands.
