Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian were friends long before becoming romantically involved.
Prior to making their relationship Instagram official in February 2021, the Blink-182 drummer and Poosh founder lived in the same Calabasas, Calif., neighborhood for many years.
“Kourtney’s like a dear friend. That’s it,” Barker told E! News at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in 2019. “I mean, I love her to death. I love her family to death. But yeah, just friends.”
After a steamy PDA-filled romance, the couple got engaged in October 2021 and officially tied the knot in mid-May during a small ceremony in Santa Barbara, Calif. The couple said “I do” again days after after in a lavish Italian ceremony that included their six total children from previous relationships.
Kardashian revealed in June 2023 that she and Barker are expecting their first child together. The surprise announcement arrived during a Blink-182 concert in Los Angeles, where she held up a sign that read “Travis I’m Pregnant.”
