Kourtney Kardashian Gave Birth to a Long-Desired Baby Boy, Their First Child With Travis Barker
Following a pregnancy with concerning complications, 44-year-old Kourtney Kardashian has reportedly welcomed her fourth child into the world. The baby, a boy, is the first child for Kardashian and her husband, Travis Barker.
The boy’s name is Rocky.
The Blink-182 musician had previously confirmed their intention to name their son Rocky Thirteen when discussing Kourtney’s due date. “It’s either Halloween,” he mentioned, “or like the first week of November.”
“I like Rocky Thirteen,” Barker said. “That’s this name that’s been going through my head lately... Rocky George played guitar for [iconic punk band] Suicidal Tendencies, and the name also serves as a homage to 1976 motion picture Rocky, the greatest boxing movie of all time.”
Despite previous complications, the baby is completely fine.
In the weeks leading up to the arrival of their baby, Kardashian Barker discussed a “medical emergency” she had experienced, which necessitated an urgent fetal surgery. Luckily, both mom and son are doing fine.
A source says, “Kourtney gave birth and she and Travis are so elated. They’re feeling extremely fortunate that both Kourtney and their baby are healthy after the complications Kourtney went through. They recognize that the circumstances could have been a lot different, so they are feeling extra appreciative and grateful that everyone is safe, happy, and healthy. That is what’s most important to them.”
The couple now has 6 kids in total.
Kourtney has three children from her previous relationship with Scott Disick: Mason Disick, 13, Penelope Disick, 11, and Reign Disick, 8. On the other hand, Travis shares parenting with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler for Landon Barker, 20, and Alabama Barker, 17, and he is also a stepfather to Atiana De La Hoya, 24.
Before the arrival of their latest child, Kourtney and Travis, who got married in May 2022, had openly expressed their desire to expand their already big family.
Before the couple was undergoing IVF to have a child but later decided to take a natural path.
