Travis’ first Kardashian crush on Kim
Travis Barker, who’s been a family friend for years, first showed his interest in the KarJenner clan when he confessed he first became attracted to Kim Kardashian — not Kourtney — when she was Paris Hilton’s assistant around 2006 was.
“How could you not stare at Kim? Mind you, I enjoyed hanging out with Paris, but I love curvy girls,” Travis admitted in 2015. “Kim was eye candy. I wasn’t disrespectful to Paris, but I couldn’t take my eyes off Kim!’
Travis went on to say he spent time with Kim in her neighborhood in Calabasas, and while he had a “crush” on her, he said “nothing ever happened.”

Travis then made several appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians while still married to ex-wife Shanna Moakler, cementing his status as a true friend of the Kardashian family.
His daughter, Alabama, announced in October 2017 that she had bonded with the Kardashians along with her father, though she didn’t specifically mention Kourtney.
“Actually, I had dinner with everyone the other day and they were really cute,” she said at the time. Travis shares Alabama and a son Landon with his ex Moakler, to whom he was married from 2004 to 2008.

Kourtney and Travis first sparked romance rumors when they were spotted on what appeared to be a date together in Los Angeles in 2018.

From friends to lovers
Their relationship was confirmed in January 2021 after growing closer during the pandemic, with Kourtney recently revealing that she made the first move while the two enjoyed a friendly movie night together.
“I’ve definitely always been attracted to Travis. I think it was just the right time in my life,” she said on the show this year, adding, “We texted and I released it, like a flirty conversation.”
After Travis didn’t move and screened a second film for her, Kourtney acted, “I was like, ‘I don’t have time for this movie marathon,'” so I took the first step. ‘

PDA power pair
“Kravis” became the official Instagram partner for Valentines in February 2021 when Kourtney posted a picture of the couple holding hands, but that was just the beginning of the wild PDAs that followed. In April, Travis posted a blurry snap of them while they later revealed their signature move on Kourtney sitting on top of Blink 182’s drummer in the Utah desert.
Her PDAs peaked in August last year when Scott Disick contacted her ex Younes Bendjima on Instagram after he saw Kourtney Travis straddle in a gondola. He later apologized.
They made their red carpet debut at the VMAs last September, and their French kissing performances for the cameras set the tone for many other PDA-heavy events, including this year’s Met Gala.

While the couple’s romance has seen many high points, Kourtney has revealed they also faced heartbreak as she struggled to have a child with Travis.
In an episode of The Kardashians, Kourt admitted that her doctor put her on “this IVF journey,” saying, “It wasn’t the most amazing experience.”
The reality star is mom to Mason, 12; Penelope, nine; and Reign, seven – with her former partner Scott Disick, who she dated from 2005 to 2015.
A romantic proposal
Travis popped the question to Kourtney in October and abducted her to a beach in Montecito, California while capturing the special moment for reality show Kardashians Hulu.
It was later revealed that there was drama when Kris Jenner called out not to include Kourtney’s kids in the happy moment – causing her daughter Penelope to be upset.
“I woke up all night thinking it was a dream,” Kourtney gushed on Instagram at the time.

Not settling for just one ceremony, Kravis kicked off a drunk wedding in Las Vegas in April of this year after partying at the Grammy Awards. But the marriage was invalid as it turned out that the beloved couple did not have the right papers.
In the run-up to her big wedding in Italy, Kravis legally tied the knot in Santa Barbara in May in the presence of her grandmother, Mary Jo “MJ” Campbell, and Travis’ father, Randy Barker. The couple drove away in a vintage lowrider convertible with a “Just Married” sign on it.
However, for their big party in Portofino, the couple went all out and rented an entire castle for family and friends. The couple chose the historic house-museum Castello Brown on a hilltop overlooking Portofino Harbor for their official grand celebration.
