How Far Along Is Kourtney Kardashian?
Kourtney made the most epic pregnancy announcement at a Blink-182 concert in June 2023.
The Lemme founder held a sign that read, “Travis I’m pregnant,” while reenacting a scene from the band’s “All the Small Things” music video. Although Kourtney’s baby bump was very much visible as she shared the big news, the reality star didn’t share how far along she was.
When Did Kourtney and Travis Reveal the Gender of Their Baby?
Later in June, the Hulu star and Travis held a “Rock-n-Roll” themed gender reveal party at their Los Angeles home alongside close family and friends. The pair shared they were expecting a baby boy as they rocked out on the drums and enjoyed extravagant baby-coming-soon sweets.
“Little drummer boy coming soon,” Kourtney captioned her Instagram announcement at the time.
Why Was Kourtney Kardashian Hospitalized?
Travis and his Blink-182 bandmates postponed four of their U.K. tour dates due to an “urgent family matter” on Travis’ end. Though neither of the pair have publicly shared what the family emergency was at the time, the musician shared photos in a Prayer Room with a banner that read, “Together We Pray.”
The couple were photographed leaving a Los Angeles medical center on September 2, where Kourtney’s baby bump was still visible. Two days later, a source revealed to People that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum was admitted to the hospital because she thought she was in labor.

The California natives have remained hush since their weekend full of hospital visits, however, it seems like the family is doing well.
The Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami star broke her silence following her hospitalization on September 6, revealing the doctors saved her baby’s life.

I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear,” she wrote via Instagram. “I have a whole new understanding and respect for the mamas who have had to fight for their babies while pregnant.”
Kourtney also shared she was “eternally grateful” for Travis to return home amid his tour and her mom, Kris Jenner, for “holding her hand” throughout the traumatic experience.
"Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing," she concluded.
