On June 23, Kourtney Kardashian, pregnant with her fourth child and her first with her husband Travis Barker, gave her followers a glimpse of her baby bump with a recent bikini photo.
The reality TV star is thoroughly cherishing this pregnancy.
Kourtney offered her followers an update of her pregnancy, showcasing her baby bump while having a fun pool day with her children.
The 44-year-old flaunted her growing belly in a green bikini, as seen in the photos she posted on Instagram on June 23. She captioned the family’s day out at the “Spa House” paradise, “sweet summer.”
During a Blink-182 concert in Los Angeles on June 16, Kourtney and Travis announced they’re expecting their first child together, which would be the seventh addition to their combined family.
Just two days after the announcement, Kourtney shared the initial photo of her baby bump with a message of appreciation following the couple’s two-year journey to fertility.
Her caption on June 18 read, “Overwhelmed with gratitude and joy for God’s blessing and plan.” Travis, 47, replied with, “God is great.”
Both Kourtney and Travis, who tied the knot in Italy in May 2022, have three children each from previous relationships. Kourtney shares Mason Disick, 13, Penelope Disick, 10, and Reign Disick, 8, with her ex Scott Disick, while Travis has son Landon Barker, 19, daughter Alabama Barker, 17, and stepdaughter Atiana De La Hoya, 24, with ex Shanna Moakler.
The couple has long desired to expand their brood. “I would love two [more kids], in a dream world,” Kourtney confided to Access Hollywood last year. “And we each have three—so six, seven, eight.”
However, following the discontinuation of the IVF process in early 2022, Kourtney expressed on The Kardashians, “We would love a baby more than anything, but I just really believe in what God has in store for us… If that’s a baby, then I believe that it will happen.”
