The eldest Kardashian sister is set to wed for the first time ever after Travis proposed just one day after his “SNL” appearance — and their backstage PDA!
It’s been a whirlwind week of adventure for Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, culminating with a surprise engagement on Sunday in Montecito, according to Media.
Kourtney has three children with Scott Disick and has dated several different men over the years, but never before has the reality star said yes to getting hitched. Clearly the whirlwind romance with the Blink-182 drummer put her in a whole different head space than any of her previous relationships.
It helps that Travis pulled out all the stops for this proposal. Based on the images and video we’ve seen so far, it was a gorgeous beach vista with more flowers than you could probably count in a lifetime. And, as you might expect, the rock is absolutely huge.
It was Kim Kardashian who had the ring shots, as Kourtney focused on the magical moment itself in her Instagram post. And Kim wasn’t the only one to share her enthusiasm for the newly engaged couple.
For her post, Kourtney simply captioned it, “Forever,” followed by Travis’ IG handle. Travis’ response echoed her message, writing simply, “FOREVER ♾.” Travis posted on his Instagram profile as well, sharing a photo of himself and Kourt in a sweet embrace. He echoed his bride-to-be once more, captioning the photo, “Forever.”
Travis shared Kourtney’s posts, as well as a short video Kim posted to her Instagram Stories of the two of them kissing passionately before getting a close look at the merchandise.
Perhaps it’s no surprise, then, that Kim’s comment to Kourtney’s post was, “💍💍💍.” She did follow that up with another comment, featuring three heart emojis. Kendall Jenner shared a shot of the bling, too, on her IG Stories, while Kylie split the difference with a shot of the proposal and another of the ring.
As for Khloe Kardashian, she commented with three heart emojis on Kourtney’s post. The Good American founder later reshared the photo of Kourtney and Travis on the beach on her Instagram profile, captioning the post, “♥️ LOVE conquers all things ♥️.”
Kris Jenner shared a series of photos of her daughter and her fiancé on Instagram, including shots of a couple of the beach. “Congratulations to the most beautiful, adorable, affectionate, fabulous, made for each other couple in the world!” she wrote in the post’s caption. “Love you guys!!!!!! @kourtneykardash @travisbarker ❤️❤️❤️❤️.”
Travis’ 15-year-old daughter, Alabama, meanwhile, was among the first to share her congratulations, commenting on Kourtney’s post, “Love u guys ❤️🙌.” She also shared a pic to her Instagram Stories at the dinner table — also adorned with roses — set up after the ceremony with Travis kissing a beaming Kourtney.
“So happy for you guys I love u both,” she captioned the image. Her brother, Landon, 18, shared a similar sentiment, alongside a short video clip of the happy couple at the dinner table. “Congratulations,” he wrote to the pair. “I’m so happy for you guys love you guys so much!
Landon also posted a video on his TikTok account. Like the video he posted to his Instagram Stories, Landon shared footage of Kourtney and his dad at the dinner table. In the TikTok clip, the pair sweetly embraced and can be seen talking. Landon also filmed himself at one point, adding a thumbs up for the camera, and posed with a friend. “So happy for me and my new family,” he wrote on top of the video footage.
In both the clip he shared to his Instagram Stories and the TikTok video, Landon panned the dinner table and a large video camera could be seen filming the event. According to Media, Travis and Kourtney’s engagement was shot for the Kardashian-Jenner family’s upcoming Hulu series.
Meanwhile, as for more reactions to the engagement news, Atiana De La Hoya, who Travis raised, took to her Instagram Stories, posting a photo that featured Travis holding Kourtney’s hand, with her ring on full display. Alongside the shot, Atiana, 22, shared a black heart emojji as well as male and female vampire emojis. She also posted a shot of Kourtney and Travis kissing at the dinner table.
Kourtney’s close friend, Khadijah Haqq McCray, kept it short and sweet with a single emoji: ❤️. Simon Huck, another Kardashian family friend, commented, “Love you guys.” Winnie Harlow shared her excitement with an, “Ahhhhh 😍congratulations, while Addison Rae was even louder (in print), adding, “IM SCREAMING.” Shanina Shaik, meanwhile, was so excited, she commented twice. Once to drop in three heart emojis and again to write, “Omg yesssss.” Kourtney’s lifestyle company, POOSH, also commented, writing, “Congrats.”
She got love from other reality stars, as well, with Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola giving her a sweetheart emoji, while Melissa Gorga wrote, “Ahhh! kourt will walk down the aisle ❤️❤️.”
While not an official reaction, Travis’ wife Shanna Moakler also made headlines for what she was posting on social media after the news broke.
On Monday morning she posted a Tupac quote reading, “Before you ask why someone hates you, ask yourself why you give a f—.” She followed that up with another Story reading, “Temporarily closed for spiritual maintenance.” She has yet to directly comment on the news, however.
Countless Kardashian fans were dropping comments in the post throughout the night, too, but our favorite probably goes to Samir, who wrote, “He has to change his name to Kravis Karker now.”
The engagement quickly got the couple trending on Twitter, as fans all jumped in to share their congratulations to the happy couple — and, of course, poke a little fun at the famous family. Kim even made their couple name official!
