More is being revealed about Baby Kravis!

According to a birth certificate obtained by PEOPLE, the Lemme co-founder and the Blink-182 drummer officially welcomed their baby boy on November 1 at a hospital in Los Angeles. The power couple have named their son Rocky Thirteen Barker.

Rocky, a baby boy name of English origin, typically means “rest” but considering Barker’s pop-punk background the name is more likely an ode to the couple’s rock-and-roll attitude. The meaning and inspiration behind baby’s middle name, Thirteen, remains a mystery although it could be indicative of a lucky number or special date.

Kardashian and Barker have yet to confirm details about their newborn or share any photos since baby’s arrival. Kardashian did post wishing Barker a happy birthday on November 15 writing, “To my husband, my soulmate, my best friend, my lover, my daddy to our baby boy, my everything… I wish you the happiest birthday. You make all of my dreams come true and I feel so blessed to have you by my side. I love you beyond words, forever.”

Kourtney Kardashian Opens Up About Her “Geriatric” Pregnancy

In an interview with Vogue for the outlet’s November issue, the eldest Kardashian daughter opened up about her fourth pregnancy being labeled as “geriatric” at 44-years-old.

“That word is just so wild,” she said of the term, “But my doctors are so cautious and I’ve had so many more restrictions than my other pregnancies.” Kardashian noted that she was told not to workout, fly or have sex during her first trimester. “Then the second trimester, I could do anything. Now, I am back to all the restrictions,” she noted.

Despite being extra careful, the reality TV star is still looking forward to plenty of fun times with her newborn. In an interview with Vanity Fair Italia the mom of four already opened up about her favorite things about being a mom.

“I love experiencing life through their eyes and doing with them all the things I did as a child. Going to Disneyland or even just touching sand for the first time,” she said. “I love creating traditions and memories and making everyday things feel special and magical. Being able to do that now with Travis is a dream come true.”

Kardashian also noted that it took her a while to let go of the fear after she had to have "urgent fetal surgery” last month. “Right after the surgery, I reached the point where I let myself go and I stopped worrying. Now I talk to the baby every day, have a positive mindset, keep my head straight, and say a lot of prayers,” she said. “I feel really lucky and grateful. I have a lot of gratitude. Not that I didn’t have it before, but perhaps since it came easy to me, I took the pregnancy for granted.”

Kourtney Kardashians Opens Up About Life-Saving Fetal Surgery

The Poosh founder shared her harrowing experience on Instagram on September 6. “I will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby’s life. I am eternally grateful to my husband who rushed to my side from tour to be with me in the hospital and take care of me afterwards, my rock. And to my mom, thank you for holding my hand through this,” she wrote.

The mom of three went on to speak about how her past pregnancies with Reign Aston, 8, Penelope Scotland, 11 and Mason Dash, 13, had been relatively easy, so she “wasn’t prepared for the fear of rushing into urgent fetal surgery.”

“I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear. I have a whole new understanding and respect for the mamas who have had to fight for their babies while pregnant,” she wrote. “Praise be to God. Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing.”


Celebrities from Christy Carlson Romano to Kimoa Lee Simmons and Heather Rae El Moussa sent their love and prayers to the expectant mama in the comments of her post. “Sending you all the strength I can muster. And love. Tons of love,” Alyssa Milano wrote.

Kardashian’s husband, Travis Barker, also shared a tweet about the situation, writing, "God is great. I flew home for a life-threatening emergency surgery for our baby that I’m so grateful went well,” he said. "I want to say thank you for all the support. Tour resumes Friday.”

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker Host Disneyland Themed Baby Shower

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker brought the happiest place on earth home for their first baby shower together.

The Kardashians star and the Blink 182 drummer crafted an over-the-top ode to Disneyland in their backyard, complete with a large “Baby Barker” sign—inspired by the park’s attraction It’s A Small World—and hundreds of darling details.

In a TikTok video posted to Kim Kardashian and her daughter’s account, the duo takes in all of the details and has a fun time in the photobooth. As the camera pans around the party, friends and fans are able to take in all of the magic, from the Mickey Mouse-shaped pretzels to the Alice in Wonderland green juice, the barbershop quartet and an adorable Wishing Tree.

Designed for attendees to leave messages of love and encouragement for the happy couple, mega fans have discerned that the Wishing Tree could be an added insight into what baby barker’s name will be. Several fans have since determined that a screen still of the Wishing Tree inscription refers to the baby as Rocky. The note partially reads, “May Baby Rocky have the most … life filled with love, happiness….”


Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker Reveal The Sex of Their Baby

In the video shared to Instagram this weekend, Kardashian and the Blink 182 drummer sat in all-white ensembles at a drumset in anticipation of the big announcement. After a short drumroll and smooch, blue confetti and streamers were shot into the air in celebration of the couple’s baby boy.

Several friends and fans commented on the post calling out how happy the expecting parents looked. “I love how they don’t even look at anyone else when they’re together,” noted one user. “They can actually name him Kravis,” joked another. While a fun idea, it doesn’t look like the name Kravis is making the list for baby boy’s name beyond a fun Note title.

Shortly after the reveal, the Poosh founder leaked a list from her iPhone notes app to Betches with all the names she’s considering for baby. Separated into three categories, including Pooshy Names, Punk Rock Names and Boujie Names, in the spirit of recent celebrity trends many of the monikers are anything but ordinary.

On the Pooshy Names list—dedicated to names in the vein of Kardashian’s health and wellness brand—you can find names like Matcha, Chamomile, Zoodle, Enigma and even Collagen. In a nod to her husband’s background you can find more “hard-core” names like Havoc, Splint and Anarchy. And of course, in the Keeping Up With The Kardashians spirit, there are plenty of Bougie Names, from Julep to Prenup, Dolce and Roth.

All of baby boy’s names range a good bit less traditional than Kardashian and Barker’s older kids. The little one will be the seventh child in Kourtney and Travis’ blended family. Kardashian has three kids—Mason, 13; Penelope, 10; and Reign, 8 with ex Scott Disick. Meanwhile, the musician shares son Landon, 19; daughter Alabama, 17; and stepdaughter Atiana De La Hoya, 24, with ex Shanna Moakler.


Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker Announce They’re Expecting

The 44-year-old entrepreneur first shared her happy news with the world on June 17. In a callback to the All The Small Things music video, Kardashian showed off her bump for the first time at a Blink-182 concert, where she stood out in the crowd with a sign that read “Travis, I’m Pregnant!” Once the drummer saw the sign, he swiftly exited the stage to give his wife a hug and kiss before continuing on with the concert.

After her big bump debut, Kardashian happily posted the news to Instagram with a caption that simply read, “Overwhelmed with gratitude and joy for God’s blessing and plan.” In the carousel of photos, Barker jokingly plays the drums on her growing bump and the couple embrace.

Kardashian had previously opened up about her desire to have a baby with Barker and the couple’s difficult journey. In a March 2022 teaser for The Kardashians, the reality TV star confirmed she and Barker were trying to get pregnant via IVF. “Travis and I want to have a baby,” she said, as cameras captured them consulting medical professionals to start the in vitro fertilization (IVF) process.

However, as many know, the IVF process wasn’t easy. In an April episode of The Kardashians, Kourtney said IVF has been “awful” for her. “It hasn’t been the most amazing experience,” she said, telling her mom Kris Jenner that “Every single person on social media is always like, ‘Kourtney’s pregnant,’” she said. “‘Kourtney’s gained so much weight.’ And I’m like, it’s so rude to comment on people when you have no idea what they’re actually going through.”

After confirming in a May 2023 episode that she and Barker were “officially done” with IVF, noting that her eggs “didn’t survive the thaw” and that none of them “made it” to an embryo. Kardashian noted that she and Barker would still keep trying.

“We would love a baby more than anything, but I just really believe in what God has in store for us,” she said. “If that’s a baby, then I believe that it will happen. Being happy is most important, and being a good parent to my kids.”

Our best to the happy couple as they welcome their new addition!
