‘Kravis’ stans will be happy to know that after less than a year of dating, Kourtney Kardashian and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker are now engaged.
Travis kept the proposal a secret to surprise Kourtney
Travis popped the question on Sunday during a romantic sunset at the Rosewood Miramar hotel in Montecito, California. Kourtney broke the joyous news to Instagram with a snap of the couple on the beach, surrounded by hundreds of red roses, and accompanied by the caption ‘forever @travisbarker.’
The couple then celebrated with a dinner at the hotel alongside the Kardashian clan, including momager Kris and sisters Kim, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie. Khloe’s on-off boyfriend Tristan Thompson and Kris’ longtime partner Corey Gamble also joined in on the three-course festivities. A source revealed to E! News:
Travis escorted Kourtney down to the beach, where he had red and white florals set up in the shape of a heart. It looked very romantic. I could see Kourtney smiling from ear to ear and put her hand over her mouth looking surprised. The family cheered for them and went back into the hotel.
A source revealed to People that Travis had already filled in Kourtney’s family about his plans to surprise her with a proposal and urged them to keep it a secret:
The Rosewood is their favourite for short weekend getaways. They often stay at the hotel. This is why Travis proposed there. It’s a very special place to them, but it was also easier to keep everything a secret by proposing there.
Kourtney and Travis were rumoured to have started dating in December last year. However, they only made their relationship public in February after sharing matching Valentine’s Day posts on Instagram. Since then, the pair have been inseparable and have been peppered through each others’ social media feeds in series’ of sultry images.
Both Kourtney and Travis have children from previous relationships, with Travis being a father to 15-year-old daughter Alabama Luella Barker and son Landon Asher Barker (17) from his marriage to Shanna Moakler. Alabama and Landon were also present at the celebratory candle-lit dinner.
Meanwhile, Kourtney famously has three children Mason (10), Penelope (9), and Reign (6), to former boyfriend Scott Disick, who the Kardashian dated on and off for almost a decade.
What does Scott Disick think of the engagement?
Scott, who made appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians during his relationship with Kourtney, was questioned about his thoughts on her new relationship during the show’s reunion earlier this year.
It seemed at the time that Scott wasn’t harbouring any hard feelings towards either Kourtney or Travis, stating: ‘I think if you really love somebody, right, you want them to be happy no matter what.’
So, I do give her a blessing to be happy.
However, it seems that Disick has had a change of heart with the recent news, as a source revealed to Page Six that he's ‘about to go off the deep end.’
Scott is going crazy. He’s going to go off the deep end. It’s really bad. It’s about to get dark.
Another source revealed to People that Scott never really approved of the couple in the first place and always thought he and Kourtney would eventually get back together:
Scott never approved of Kourtney dating Travis. He has struggled with their relationship. He always had this idea that he and Kourtney would eventually get back together. He was pretty shocked when he found out that she was dating Travis.
While Disick has yet to speak out about the engagement, Kourtney and Travis have been inundated with support from friends, family, and fans online, with Travis’ children even celebrating the pair.
