It’s official: Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian are married! Just hours after walking the red carpet at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, the pair reportedly married in a private ceremony in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The news was initially reported by TMZ. According to the outlet, Kourtney and Travis married in the middle of the night at a wedding chapel in Vegas on Monday, April 4, 2022, after walking into the venue at around 1:30 a.m. According to the publication’s sources, Kourtney and Travis brought their own photographer and security, which can only mean that images of their wedding already exist—and it’s only a matter of time before the happy couple decides to share them with the world.
According to TMZ, the couple arrived with a marriage licence in hand, indicating that their Vegas ceremony was legitimate. Meanwhile, the wedding chapel owner acted as a witness to their union. The Blink-182 musician and Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum reportedly requested an Elvis Presley impersonator to perform the event. According to TMZ sources, Kourtney and Travis will likely have another wedding ceremony in the future, with “many” extra events with “a lot of fanfare.” While friends and family will have to wait for a grander ceremony at a later date, all indicators point to Kourtney and Travis being legally married for the time being.
Kourtney and Travis’ marriage announcement comes less than six months after the couple announced their engagement. On October 17, 2021, the couple announced their engagement on Instagram, with the Poosh creator posting a photo of herself and her then-fiancé on a beach surrounded by candles and roses. She captioned the photo, “forever @travisbarker.” The reality star wasn’t expecting the proposal, which took place over a romantic dinner date at a beachside hotel in Montecito, California, according to a source at the time.
“It came as a big shock to Kourtney. Travis informed her family of his plans to propose, but “everyone was fantastic at keeping it a secret,” according to the insider. “For short weekend trips, they like the Rosewood.” They frequently stay in hotels. Travis proposed there for this reason. It’s a special site for them, but proposing there made it easier to keep everything under wraps.”
“It was a very beautiful beach proposal at sunset,” the person stated. Travis took Kourtney for a walk, and when she saw all the roses on the beach, you could see she wasn’t sure what was going on. A heart was made out of red and white roses. There were a lot of candles on the table. They both appeared to be in good spirits.”
Kourtney is getting married for the first time. The reality star has never married, but she has three children with ex-boyfriend Scott Disick: Mason, 11, Reign, 6, and Penelope, eight. Travis, on the other hand, has had two marriages. From 2001 to 2002, he was married to actress Melissa Kennedy. From 2004 to 2008, he was married to model Shanna Moakler. Alabama, 15, and Landon, 18, are the children of the former spouse.
