Kourtney Kardashian is ENGAGED to Travis Barker after Las Vegas proposal as couple plan intimate wedding, friends claim
KOURTNEY Kardashian is engaged to boyfriend Travis Barker after he proposed in Las Vegas over the weekend, friends of the star exclusively told The Sun.
The Blink-182 drummer got down on one knee to ask his girlfriend of seven months to marry him during a trip to watch a UFC fight, the source said- and the couple plans to marry later this year.
“I think Travis has been planning the proposal for ages,” said a source close to the eldest Kardashian sister.
“They want to start their own family together - that is the bigger thing for them because they both have kids, but they want to bring the two families together.”
Travis’ teen daughter Alabama posted a message saying “congratulations” and adding that she was “so happy” for them - while Kourtney’s sister Khloe sent a huge bunch of flowers.
Kourtney's hairstylist added to the speculation by sharing photos of them from Vegas and writing: "NOW I understand why ppl tie the knot in Vegas. There’s nothing like love AND a good time.”
Kourtney, 42, and Travis, 45, sparked rumors that they’d tied the knot in the city - famous for its quickie weddings - with a cryptic picture of the pair holding hands captioned: “What happens in Vegas.”
But the speculation was quickly dismissed after a source in the Clark County marriage license bureau told The Sun they had not been in - which they would have to have done to get hitched.
“Kourt's never been married, and for years, told [her ex] Scott [Disick] she wasn’t interested because of her parents' divorce,” said the source.
“She actually turned down Scott a few times - but things with Travis are different. They’ve talked a lot about marriage and the future.
"She doesn’t want a ‘show wedding’ like her sisters, just a beautiful, intimate celebration where it's about making a new family.”
Recently, Kourtney has sparked pregnancy rumors by wearing loose clothes, giving up meat and fish and quitting drinking alcohol.
The friend added that another baby is definitely in the KUWTK star's plans.
“For her, she wants to get to the baby part and feels like she's finally got her happy fairytale ending and just wants it all to start immediately," the pal said.
"Travis is just as excited, and very much on the same page."
“Right now they live in separate houses and there are quite a few complications to manage in terms of where the kids live.
"But they are determined they can make this work, and that getting married and having a new baby is the right thing for the future.”
Kourtney has children Mason, 11, Penelope, 9, and Reign, 6, with ex Scott Disick, and Travis shares son Landon, 17, and daughter Alabama, 15, with his former wife Shanna Moakler.
