Barker got the surprise of his life when he peered down into the stands at his concert on June 16 and saw his wife jumping with a sign reading: “TRAVIS I’M PREGNANT!” The couple confirmed the news when they both posted a video of the moment to Instagram the same night.

She then reveals the inspiration for her sign— Blink-182’s 1999 visual for their hit single, “All The Small Things.” In a part of the iconic video Kardashian shared, a fan can be seen holding up a sign that also reads, “Travis I’m Pregnant.” In another photograph, Kardashian is pictured sitting backstage on the ground writing the sign.

If that’s a baby, I believe it will happen.”
The Sisters Have Been Feuding on Season 3 of ‘The Kardashians’
The news comes as Kim and Kourtney’s estrangement has been chronicled in the current season of their show. Kourtney broke down in tears in Episode 5 upon learning of Kim’s collaboration with Dolce & Gabanna, the same designer who curated looks for her Italian wedding last year. According to Kourtney, Kim cares more about business than their relationship and her feelings. Kim was admittedly hesitant to tell Kourtney details of the collaboration beforehand, which included her overseeing a fashion show for the iconic brand.
Kourtney has also admitted to feeling isolated from her family since being engulfed in Barker. Simultaneously, Kim and Khloé have grown closer, but Kourtney insists she remains top billing in Khloé’s life despite life’s natural changes. Kim promises their family drama is only temporary. Hopefully, a new baby will reunite them all.
