Just in case they haven't made it abundantly clear, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are madly in love...and are now officially Mr and Mrs.
The PDA-promoters certainly fell hard and fast. Even though they're not one to shy away from kisses, sexy selfies, and declarations of love, they haven't exactly been forthcoming about their wedding. But as of May 16th, 2022 we know that they are officially man and wife, after exchanging vows in intimate service—with their grand ceremony still to come.
The friends-to-lovers relationship is the talk of the town—especially now that the couple has seemingly confirmed that they're trying for a baby together (we wonder if Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson will be godparents?!) However many fans may still be confused about what's going on with their (so far numerous) weddings.
So, let's take a look to see how it all began for the reality TV star and Blink-182 drummer—plus everything we know about their nuptials and their exciting baby news!
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker pre-2021
Before the two were an item, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker were reportedly "close friends," which is a seamless transition to a relationship. They were even already acquainted with one another's family to boot. Things took a turn for the romantic in late 2020.
The two started to make fans question if something more than friendship was in the works when Barker left a few flirty Instagram comments on the Kardashian sister's page, including a red rose emoji on her sexy mirror selfie.
What really got the conversation started in January was the fact that the two both shared the same images from Mama Bear Kris Jenner's home in Palm Springs. (We sensed they were enjoying a weekend getaway.)
When the eldest Kardashian sister shared an image on Instagram holding the drummer's hand—several days after Valentine's Day, we might add—we knew for certain that love was in the air. No need for a caption Kourt, the photo speaks volumes.
Although a few sultry moments got fans' attention, Barker's kind words really captured hearts. While making an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show, he gushed about his girl and how effortless their relationship is.
"I'm spending time with a woman who’s a great mom, who’s a great friend," he said.
But that doesn't mean the steaminess was put on hold—far from it. The sexiness was turned back on, and quickly when Kourtney wore a risqué t-shirt while on a date with the rocker. The shirt included NSFW lyrics from The Queer's track, "Love Me." The two also had a fun night out with fellow love bugs Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox in late March.
Spring 2021 was all about the tats and the PDA, if you're going by Kourt and Travis. The Blink-182 drummer got the reality star's name tattooed on his chest, celebrated her birthday with some steamy IG photos and declared his leading lady "a blessing to this world." Plus, he also showered Kourt with a gorgeous floral display of tulips and gardenias in her home.

Apparently, not everyone's thrilled with the duo's newfound love for one another. Travis's ex-wife Shanna Moakler was less than pleased and claimed that Kourtney broke apart her family. (She also alleged that Travis had an affair with Kourtney's older sister Kim, whom he did admit to having a crush on in the past.)
"My family is broken because of this family, and now my kids and I are alienated from each other because of another sister in the family, so yay for me... Thanks for destroying my family twice," Moakler told TMZ (opens in new tab).
But this didn't seem to bother the couple. We caught a glimpse of Kourtney tattooing "I love you" on her beau's arm, so it seems like a pretty permanent situation. The duo even ventured to the most magical place on earth (Disney) with their kids. They needed to cool off after their rather risqué admission earlier in the month when Travis claimed that he had a Goop candle that smelled like "Kourtney's orgasms." It's safe to say that is definitely not Mickey Mouse material.
Much like friends MGK and Megan Fox, Kourtney is taking the whole commitment thing to a new level by carrying around a vial of Travis's blood, which she shared with followers on Instagram. That's certainly one interesting way to prove your devotion to your S.O.
The two decided to venture to Italy, and of course, engage in some amore while there. As per usual, Kourt took to Instagram to show off her steamy kissing session with the rocker. No one was surprised.
What onlookers did find surprising? Scott's alleged response to the smooches.
During the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion, Scott told host Andy Cohen that he gives his ex his blessing to pursue this new relationship.
“I think if you really love somebody, right, you want them to be happy no matter what. So I do give her a blessing to be happy,” he said.
It only took a matter of weeks for that to change: Kourt's ex, Younes Bendjima, posted an alleged private direct message on his Instagram Stories on August 30, 2021, from none other than the Lord himself.
"Yo is this chick ok!????? Brooo like what is this. In the middle of Italy,” Scott wrote while including a photo of Kravis in a lip lock.
Younes replied: "Don’t matter to me as long as she’s happy. PS: I aint your bro.” He captioned the screenshot of the message with: "Keep the same energy you had about me publicly, privately.”

Months later, ahead of The Kardashians on Hulu, it was revealed that Kourtney woke up to text messages from Scott apologizing for his behavior.
According to US Weekly (opens in new tab), she said, "This is despicable. Your actions need to match up with you wanting to be a part of this and act like it. I was in Italy and he was DMing Younes. Then I was like, ‘That’s not really the vibe. Don’t go DMing my ex-boyfriend.'"
Things might get bumpy from time to time, but Kravis does not appear to be fazed. Several days after the DM drama, the couple attended the MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn, New York, where the rocker performed with pal Machine Gun Kelly. MTV's biggest event was the perfect place for them to make their debut red carpet appearance together and, per usual, prove just how in love they are.
They looked like the perfect punk-rock couple in matching black leather ensembles. As you might've imagined, there were plenty of kisses along the way as they hit the red carpet. Does anyone appreciate a sexy lip lock more than these two?
Who better to introduce MGK and Barker's performance than their respective girlfriends? Megan Fox and Kourtney Kardashian took the stage, eager to let fans in on the fun before the Barclay's Center started rocking out to "Papercuts."
"I'm a huge fan of this next performer. I've watched him grow, and not just as an artist, but also as a person," Fox said of her beau, MGK.
Kourt chimed in with an equally sentimental introduction: "I'm a fan too, and I think his drummer is super hot."
But everyone's heads truly turned—and shouts erupted—when Fox said, "New York, I need you to get extra loud for our future baby daddies."
Leave it to the VMAs for a few shocking moments here and there!

The moment that surprised absolutely no one: Kourt and Travis' engagement. She said "Yes" on a Montecito beach, surrounded by a huge heart of red roses and candles.
2022: WEDDING PLANS AND BABY NAMES
Although the two have been hush-hush about their big day, they have teased baby names on social media!
But as far as their nuptials are concerned, E! (opens in new tab) reports that the two will say "I do" in 2022 to a fairly small group (surprising for a Kardashian affair). Mindy Weiss and momager Kris Jenner are the ones making the plans.
Time will tell how it will all unfold, but once news breaks of their wedding, you can guarantee some major lip action.
March 2022: Kourtney and Travis want a baby!
The new Kardashians on Hulu trailer dropped some seriously juicy details, including the news that Kourt and Travis want a baby!
The trailer showed the pair at a fertility clinic giving 'samples' and according to a new clip, Kourtney is also going down 'the road of IVF.'
April 2022: wedding bells...sort of
The Kourtney Kardashian wedding photos on Instagram prove that the madly-in-love couple is now Mr. and Mrs. Fans asked, "Did Kourtney and Travis get married after the Grammys?" when TMZ revealed the two headed to a Sin City chapel right after music's biggest night. As it turns out, they sure did.
"Once upon a time in a land far, far away (Las Vegas) at 2am, after an epic night and a little tequila, a queen and her handsome king ventured out to the only open chapel with an Elvis and got married (with no license). Practice makes perfect," Kourt wrote on Instagram.
But FYI: the whole "no license" tidbit means this union isn't technically official...yet. Looks like we're still waiting for the actual ceremony, huh?
May 2022: They're married, for real this time!
Well, folks, it's official! Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Scott have legally married in an intimate courthouse ceremony, in Santa Babara—where the PDA pair got engaged!
They have now treated us all to the first of their wedding photos, sharing a series of black and white snaps to Instagram with the caption: "'Till death do us part." The first of the photos shows the couple kissing (of course) in an open-top car, with a sign saying 'Just married' on the back and a string of traditional trailing cans.
It looks as though none of the Kar-Jenner clan were in attendance, but that's likely because the big nuptials are yet to come. The couple has reportedly planned to 'marry' again in a larger ceremony in Italy.
Regardless the famous sisters and momager showed up in the comment section to spread the love. Kim K wrote: "KRAVIS FOREVER!" and Khloe commented with several red heart emojis.
A source told People (opens in new tab) that Kourt and Travis were legally required to wed ahead of their Italy wedding.
They said: "They had to legally get married first ahead of their big Italian wedding, which is happening very soon. All the details are set and the whole family, including all the kids, are very excited."
We can't wait to see the snaps from their next wedding—hopefully, this means we'll even get some Kim and Pete content!
