Gossip alert: Did Travis know Kourtney Kardashian was pregnant before the “reveal”?
Could anything be more strikingly charming than announcing your pregnancy while your rockstar hubby is performing on stage? Kourtney Kardashian did just that! The forty-four-year-old reality TV icon dropped a baby bomb on her husband, Blink-182’s Travis Barker, forty-six, and the world in a unique Instagram reveal. But were we really caught off guard?
Every fan, follower, and Instagram detective had their own theory. The question running rampant on social media was – did Travis really not know Kourtney was expecting before her ‘surprise’ reveal at the Blink-182 concert?
Skeptics abound, pointing out that Kourtney’s baby bump, which made a notable appearance in her announcement video, must’ve caught Travis’s eye. “She’s showing a lot already,” one Instagrammer noted, followed by a flood of similar sentiments. Fans even speculated that she was possibly three to five months along, judging by the size of her baby bump.
All Sherlock Holmes hats on! The next clue that fans picked up on was Kourtney’s recent wardrobe choices. She’s been spotted wearing particularly baggy clothes, leading fans to believe she was trying to camouflage her growing belly.
“Aha! That romper gave it away, we should’ve known,” commented one follower. Even Twitter was buzzing with pregnancy rumors because of Kourtney’s oversized ensembles.
The Instagram sleuthing didn’t stop at the wardrobe. Lately, Kourtney has been sharing throwback pictures on her feed rather than current snaps. Just last week, she posted bikini-clad pictures from a 2019 holiday to Portofino. Was this another strategy to keep the baby news under wraps?
The baby news follows Kourtney’s public struggle with in vitro fertilization, which she shared candidly on Hulu’s The Kardashians. She explained that the journey wasn’t smooth sailing, as the prescribed medication led her into early menopause, caused her to gain weight, and sent her spiraling into depression.
But now, Kourtney and Travis, who both have children from previous relationships, are expanding their blended family. The couple, who became romantically involved in late 2020, tied the knot in May 2022 in a courthouse in Santa Barbara, and a week later, they exchanged vows again in front of friends and family in a lavish ceremony at the Dolce & Gabbana mansion in Portofino, Italy.
In the season three premiere of The Kardashians, Kourtney opened up about her decision to stop IVF treatments and focus on their wedding. She’d frozen her eggs in her thirties and was hoping to use them for IVF, but unfortunately, none of them survived the thaw.
While Kourtney knew that freezing eggs wasn’t a guarantee for pregnancy, she remained optimistic, expressing her trust in what the future held for them. “We would love a baby more than anything, but I just really believe in what God has in store for us,” she said.
As we join in celebrating this new chapter for Kourtney and Travis, it’s evident that nothing, not even a pregnancy, can be kept secret from eagle-eyed fans. But here’s the question that’s still lingering: How will Kourtney continue to surprise us during her pregnancy journey?
