Initially their relationship was a surprise to some, but the duo were actually friends for years long before hooking up. Sometimes the best romances start off as friendships - right Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson? As Kourtney Kardashian walked down the aisle this weekend, let's take a look back at their relationship so far...
When did Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker get married?
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have had three, yes three ceremonies. According to Kourtney their Las Vegas "wedding" was just practice - then the second ceremony was a legally binding one at a courthouse in Santa Barbara. The 'big' celebration was held in Italy and the whole Kardashian/Jenner gang were of course in attendance - Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner and all the kids were there to celebrate. Instagram is also now flooded with pictures from the big day - so be sure to go and Insta-stalk.
When did Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker start dating?
After Travis spent time with Kourtney at Kris Jenner’s Palm Springs home in January 2021, rumours that the couple were dating started to circulate. An Insider told Us Weekly, 'Kourtney and Travis are officially a couple. They have been close friends for years and have been dating for a couple months. Travis is very smitten with Kourtney and has been for a while.' They later confirmed in April 2021 that they were together.
The couple's bond actually goes way back. The duo, who live in the same Calabasas, California, gated community, have been spotted out together on numerous occasions including in 2018 when they grabbed dinner and later attended an evening church service. The musician has made appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, alongside his ex-wife Shanna Moakler.
Travis declared his love for Kourtney publicly for the first time in April 2021. Travis decided to mark Kourtney's 42nd birthday by sending her a huge bouquet of flowers - and posting some very loved up pics of the pair on Instagram. As if that wasn't enough, he captioned the post: 'I F***ING LOVE YOU! YOU’RE A BLESSING TO THIS WORLD. HAPPY BIRTHDAY.' Since this post there have been hundreds of loved up posts with lots of PDA - enjoy!
Kourtney shares three children - Mason, Penelope and Reign - with her ex Scott Disick. Travis has two children from his previous wife Shanna Moakler - Alabama and Landon. Discussing their relationship, Travis has called Kourtney 'a great mom' and 'a great friend'.
'I dated girls who didn't have kids and I find it hard because they would have trouble understanding like, "Why don't you want to go to dinner every night with me?" or "Why don't you want to see me every night?"', he explained on Drew Barrymore's talk show. 'And now I'm spending time with a woman who's a great mom, who's a great friend and you don't have to worry about any of those things.'
Who is Travis Barker?
What do you mean ‘who is Travis Barker’? Where were you when Blink 182 became poster boys for angsty teen rock via their hit All The Small Things? Please don't say you were in nappies, we'll feel old.
Anyway, Travis was the drummer in the three-piece - he joined the group in 1998 - and Rolling Stone has called him 'punk's first superstar drummer.'
He has been married twice, to Melissa Kennedy and Shanna Moakler, and has also previously been linked romantically with Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. He shares daughter Alabama and son Landon with Shanna. Barker briefly dated Rita Ora in 2015. He hit headlines in 2008 for surviving an horrific plane crash, which killed his assistant and security guard.
