PREGNANCY – Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are already considering expanding their brood as soon as next year following the birth of their son Rocky – and have even discussed using a surrogate, according to insiders, after she endured a ‘difficult’ pregnancy.
The Situation Back Then
The reality TV star, 44, and the Blink 182 drummer, 48, welcomed their first child together on November 1 last year – just two months after Kourtney was rushed to hospital for ‘urgent fetal surgery’ to save their unborn son’s life.
At the time, the Poosh founder – who has Mason, 13, Penelope, 12, and 10-year-old Reign with her ex Scott Disick – said she wasn’t ‘prepared for the fear’ she felt, especially after having ‘really easy pregnancies in the past.’
An Insider has Revealed More
An insider said: ‘Kourt had a difficult pregnancy with Rocky. She and Travis are beyond blessed that it worked out the way it did.
‘It was touch and go for a moment, but everyone is healthy and happy, and it has made them want even more children together.
‘This pregnancy challenged their love for each other in such a way that it is even better than it was – it makes people vomit with all the lovey-dovey high school related PDA they share.’
The insider continued: ‘Since Rocky is so young and they are enjoying him, next year would be the soonest time to start thinking about more kids.
Plan for Another Child?
‘They have talked about trying for another child, but this time around they would likely go through a surrogate. It is a consistent conversation between them that hasn’t changed to a “no.”‘
Fans were concerned for Kourtney and her unborn son in September 2023 when Travis’ band Blink-182 announced the postponement of some European tour dates because of an ‘urgent family matter.’
Days later, pictures emerged of the couple leaving an LA hospital and on September 6, Kourtney shared a heartfelt Instagram post in which she thanked her ‘incredible’ doctors for ‘saving our baby’s life.’
