Inside Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s whirlwind engagement from kinky sex and steamy PDAs to pregnancy rumours

IT’S been a whirlwind romance for Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker but the pair haven’t exactly been shy about their love – or their sex life. 

The Blink-182 drummer, 45, and reality TV star, 42, have been packing on the PDAs since they were first linked in February, with cringey “over the top” posts boasting about their love and bedroom antics.

And this weekend they became the most talked about celebrity couple on the planet when father-of-two Travis popped the question during a lavish beach proposal at the Rosewood Miramar Hotel.

As the sun was setting, Kourtney said “Yes” surrounded by a sea of red roses and white candles, and the musician slipped a massive sparkler – estimated to be worth £728,000 ($1m) – onto her engagement finger. 

In true PDA-style, Kourtney uploaded several gushing posts from the romantic day, showing her and her beau embracing with the caption “forever” – in response to which Travis commented “FOREVER” in capitals.

While it will be Kourtney’s first time down the aisle, it won’t be for Travis.

His first marriage to Melissa Kennedy in 2001 lasted for just nine months until he filed for divorce in August 2002.

He then tied the knot with Miss USA 1995 titleholder Shanna Moakler – the mother of his two children – in 2004, but they split in 2008.

From neighbours to lovers

The Kardashian clan and Travis have been pals for over 15 years and were friendly neighbours before things turned romantic. 

The musician has even made appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians a few times, helping decorate their pad for Christmas, bringing his kids over for a playdate and attending Kourtney’s birthday party.

In 2015 he confessed to having a “crush” on Kourtney’s little sister Kim, whom he met while dating Paris Hilton in the early Noughties. 

“How could you not stare at Kim?” he said at the time. “Mind you, I enjoyed hanging out with Paris, but I love curvy girls. Kim was eye candy. I was in no way disrespectful to Paris, but I couldn’t keep my eyes off Kim!”

Flirty emojis

Fans started to question if Kourtney and California-born Travis were more than just friends at the start of this year, after they posted nearly-identical photos taken at Kris Jenner’s home in Palm Springs.

They also started leaving flirty emojis on each other’s Instagram pics, sending the rumour mill into overdrive.

The pair stayed schtum but just before Valentine’s Day, they were snapped holding hands at Japanese restaurant Matsuhisa in Kourtney’s hometown Los Angeles.

Confirming their love, they posted cosy pics of them in front of a warm fire, with Kourtney holding hands with heavily-tattooed Travis.

The reality TV star also uploaded a photo of a goofy handwritten poem to mark their first Valentine’s Day together, which read: “Roses are red, violets are blue, garlic bread, Blink-182.”

“Love of my life”

Travis hinted at their blossoming romance in an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show. 

“I’m spending time with a woman who’s a great mum, who’s a great friend,” he said, speaking affectionately about his now-fiancee. 

Afterwards the stars took their relationship to the next level by teaming up their wellness brands. 

Posing in a comfy hoody branded “Barker Wellness Company”, Kourtney promoted her now-fiance’s CBD-infused line on her Instagram story and Travis shared the post too. 

The pair upped the PDAs online, spamming Insta with loads of pics of them snogging and embracing each other. 

They were also pictured with fellow Hollywood powerhouse Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly.

In May, they took their families on a fun trip to Disneyland.

After that getaway, Travis gushed about Kourtney being the “love of his life” for the first time in a photo caption.

Long hot summer

Throughout summer the pair teased their fans with a wave of flirty displays – including Kourtney straddling Travis on a yacht in Sestri Levante, Italy. 

The steamy post wound up her ex Scott Disick, 38, who reportedly threw shade at her in DMs. 

The reality star allegedly messaged Kourtney’s other ex, model Younes, over the PDA. 

“Yo is this chick ok!???? Brooooo like what is this. In the middle of Italy,” he apparently wrote.

However, Younes did not take the bait and snapped back: “Doesn’t matter to me as long as she’s happy. PS: I ain’t your bro.”

Along with several family trips to Disneyland, the pair flew to Mexico together – which was a big moment for Travis who had not flown since 2008 after a plane crash left him with severe burns all over his body. 

On August 17, the drummer uploaded a photo of himself holding Kourtney in his arms, posed in front of a jet.

“With you anything is possible,” the rocker wrote.

Too much PDA

Their engagement comes just days after fans said they’d “had enough” of the couple amid a backlash over “tacky” posts. 

One of the videos which caused a stir was of Kourtney straddling the musician as he held her up. 

The pair kissed passionately as they swayed back and forth in the clip, with Kourtney’s arms wrapped around his neck. 

Travis captioned the clip: “I want your skull,” followed by a skull emoji.

Shortly after the Blink-182 rocker shared the clip, fans rushed to the comments section to slam them for their constant PDA.

One fan wrote: “I can’ t watch this s**t anymore.”

Another added: “We get it you’re in love!”

Steamy sex life

Ignoring the backlash from fans, last week Kourtney shared an intimate post on the page of her lifestyle brand Poosh. 

The picture showed a woman sitting on the ground while holding a watermelon sliced in half between her legs.

The caption read: “Is plant-based good for your p***y? Yep, you read that right. Read up on how a plant-based diet can improve your vaginal health at the link in our bio.”

Fans slammed her over the “distasteful” post and begged her to stop. 

But it’s not the first time Kourtney has alluded to her steamy sex life with Travis. 

In August, she posted: “Hot Ways to Explore the World of Sexual Fetishes,” alongside a sultry image of a woman’s legs hanging off the hood of a car. 

She also shared a link to another Poosh article which discussed getting down and dirty with a lover. 

“Rough sex: love it or leave it?” the caption read, which she shared on her Story.

And more recently, Travis uploaded a 50 Shades-style snap of spiky handcuffs on Instagram in an apparent nod to their spicy sex life. 

But fans are growing “tired” of their subtle hints and subliminal messages, with many begging them to “stop”.

Baby rumours

While Kourtney has confirmed their engagement, rumours continue to swirl that she’s expecting a baby with the musician. 

Fans have accused her of fuelling speculation with “misleading” social media posts for months. 

In August, she shared a video of her receiving a delivery from baby shop Buy Buy Baby and captioned the footage “special delivery”. 

In another recent post she uploaded a pic of her looking radiant while Travis kissed her neck and posted an article for her wellness brand citing other reasons people gain weight – which aren’t related to food. 

Fans were quick to jump on it, with many believing it was a cryptic message.

One wrote: “Kourt is pregnant!” while another commented: “Father to be with his Kourtney. All things possible!”

The eldest of the Kardashian clan is already mum to Mason, 11, Penelope, eight, and Reign, six, all with her ex Scott Disick. 

For now, fans will just have to wait and see if there’ll be a baby number four…
