“Kourtney had a very scary medical situation, she is so happy to be past it now and relieved it’s all behind her,” the insider tells Us, noting her husband, Travis Barker, has returned to the road with Blink-182. “Travis is now back on tour because Kourtney is much better now [and they] are very relieved that this has passed.”
Kardashian, 44, announced on Wednesday, September 6, that she recently had “urgent fetal surgery” following a complication in her fourth pregnancy. (The reality TV star shares three children — Mason, 13, Penelope, 11, and Reign, 8, with ex Scott Disick — and is currently expecting her first with Barker, 47.)
“I will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby’s life. I am eternally grateful to my husband who rushed to my side from tour to be with me in the hospital and take care of me afterwards, my rock,” Kardashian wrote via Instagram, sharing a hospital photo with Barker. “And to my mom [Kris Jenner], thank you for holding my hand through this.”
She continued: “As someone who has had three really easy pregnancies in the past, I wasn’t prepared for the fear of rushing into urgent fetal surgery. … Praise be to God. Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing. 🙏🏼🤍.”
Blink-182 announced via Instagram Story earlier this month that the group’s concerts in Glasgow, Belfast and Dublin would be postponed after Barker returned home to California for an “urgent family matter.”
Barker — who also shares son Landon, 19, daughter Alabama, 17, and stepdaughter Atiana, 23, with ex-wife Shanna Moakler — noted on Wednesday that he planned to return to the road on Friday.
“God is great. I flew home for a life-threatening emergency surgery for our baby that I’m so grateful went well,” the drummer wrote via X (formerly Twitter). “I want to say thank you for all the support.”
Kardashian announced in June that she and Barker are expecting their first baby together after IVF struggles. As she navigated her pregnancy and the unexpected health scare, her famous family had her back.
“The Kardashians are used to putting most of their lives out there in the public eye. However, there are certain times when things are far more personal such as this situation,” a second source told Us earlier this week, explaining why the Kardashians stars did not post about the medical complication. “Kourtney’s entire family has been around her and Travis, supporting them in every way they can.”
The insider added that Kardashian’s siblings — including Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner — and mom Kris, 67, are “so grateful” that both she and the baby are alright.
