Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker started IVF treatment ‘last summer’
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker started IVF treatment “last summer”.
The 43-year-old reality star – who is already mother to 12-year-old Mason; Penelope, nine; and Reign, seven with ex-partner Scott Disick – got engaged to Blink-182 drummer Travis, 46, in October 2021, but reportedly began their IVF journey just months after they started dating.
A source said: “Kourtney decided to try to get pregnant after [she and Travis] had been dating for a few months. They started IVF last summer. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster. They didn’t expect it to be as difficult as it has been.”
The insider went on to explain that ‘The Kardashians’ star found things “particularly difficult”, but Travis – who was previously married to ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ star Shanna Moakler and has 18-year-old Landon and Alabama, 16 with her – is ‘not putting pressure’ on her because he just wants her to be ‘happy’.
The source told PEOPLE, “It’s been especially difficult for Kourtney. They would still like to have a baby. Travis doesn’t put any pressure on Kourtney though. He just wants her to be happy and healthy.”
Meanwhile, Kourtney previously admitted her IVF meds left her depressed and made her feel “menopausal”.
She said: “Everyone on social media is always like, ‘Kourtney is pregnant, Kourtney is pregnant. Kourtney has gained so much weight’. I’m like, it’s so rude to comment on people when you don’t have no idea what they’re actually going to Medications they gave me put me into menopause, literally into menopause.”
