Is Kourtney Kardashian Giving Birth Soon? Her Expected Due Date

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their first child together. With Kourtney‘s due date estimated to be in October or November 2023, speculation is rife that the birth is imminent!

Let‘s look at everything we know so far around when Baby Barker-Kardashian will make their debut.

When Did Kourtney Reveal Her Pregnancy?

Kourtney officially announced she was pregnant in June 2023 via an Instagram post captioned "coming soon."

Looking at the typical human gestation period of around 40 weeks, this puts her due date likely in October on the early side, and November on the later side.

Of course babies don‘t always arrive on the exact due date! They could make their entrance a couple weeks before or after. But late October/early November seems to be the window we‘re looking at.

Travis‘ Cryptic Posts Pointing to Early Arrival

Kourtney‘s devoted husband, Travis Barker, has made several intriguing social media posts that suggest their baby‘s arrival could be sooner than the due date.

In the weeks leading up to September 2023, fans noticed:

  • Late August: Travis shared an Instagram story with the words "God save me" over a photo of him behind a drum set. Many fans interpreted this as a prayer in anticipation of the upcoming birth.

  • September 1st: Kourtney was pictured wearing baggy clothes out to dinner in LA, looking potentially like she was concealing a baby bump.

  • September 1st: Travis posted a photo of a medical bracelet on his Instagram story. The initials read "K.B" – the same initials as Kourtney Kardashian Barker! This led to a flurry of rumors that Kourtney had been admitted to the hospital in preparation for delivery.

  • September 2nd: Travis urgently flew back to LA from London, citing a "family emergency." Most fans believe this emergency was for the imminent birth of Baby Barker-Kardashian.

So while we don‘t have explicit confirmation, these clues definitely point to Kourtney being much farther along than her estimated due date! The baby could be coming within days or weeks.

Compare to Kourtney‘s First Pregnancies

This isn‘t Kourtney‘s first rodeo when it comes to pregnancy. She has experience carrying to term three times before with her children Mason, Penelope and Reign.

But a lot has changed in the 10+ years since she was last expecting.

When pregnant with Mason at age 30, sources said she maintained an organic diet and exercised regularly throughout her pregnancy. She described the birth as "life-changing" but "natural and peaceful."

At 35-years-old while carrying Penelope, Kourtney dealt with some anxiety and pregnancy complications including preeclampsia. But she delivered a healthy baby girl naturally in July 2012.

By 38 when she had Reign, sources said she took extra pregnancy precautions due to her age and previous struggles. However, she had another smooth, natural birth.

Now at 43, Kourtney‘s mother Kris Jenner says she seems "focused and confident" about this fourth pregnancy, while making sure to put her health first. Kourtney has been vocal about struggling with IVF before conceiving naturally with Travis. She‘s reportedly taking supplements to support a healthy pregnancy.

Age certainly increases pregnancy risks, but Kourtney seems to be well-monitored and taking every precaution. Only time will tell if she makes it to her estimated due date!

Excitement From the Whole Family

As Kourtney‘s due date approaches, her family, friends and fans are getting more and more eager!

Kourtney‘s mother Kris Jenner says she can hardly wait to meet her newest grandchild, while Khloe Kardashian says she‘s "counting down the days" until her new niece or nephew arrives.

Long-time Kardashian friend Steph Shepherd posted on Instagram that she‘s ready to "spoil another one" when Kourtney‘s baby gets here.

On Travis‘ side, his 15-year-old daughter Alabama commented "so excited" on his post about returning to LA for a family emergency. Travis‘ son Landon, 18, was also reportedly with him in London before the abrupt trip home, indicating he traveled back for the birth as well.

And let‘s not forget Kourtney‘s 167 million devoted Instagram followers who are anxiously hitting "refresh" waiting for any baby announcement!

Clearly, the anticipation is at an all-time high.

A Whirlwind Romance for the Books

To understand why so many are captivated by Kourtney and Travis‘ baby news, let‘s look back at how their relationship unfolded.

Kourtney and Travis have known each other for years, but their bond turned romantic in early 2021. Ever since, we‘ve witnessed a whirlwind romance for the books:

  • January 2021: Long-time friends Kourtney and Travis are spotted at Kris Jenner‘s Palm Springs home, sparking dating rumors. Travis soon confirms their relationship status on Instagram.

  • February 2021: The couple goes Instagram official by posting a hand-holding photo with the caption "You‘re Cute."

  • April 2021: Travis gets Kourtney‘s name tattooed over his heart. Kourtney posts "I love tattoo life" on Instagram.

  • August 2021: Kourtney joins Travis on tour and is spotted giving him a lap dance backstage. Their chemistry is undeniable!

  • October 2021: After just 9 months of dating, Travis proposes to Kourtney on the beach surrounded by roses and candles.

  • April 2022: The couple has a "practice wedding" ceremony in Las Vegas after the Grammy‘s. It‘s not legally binding, but they share photos in wedding looks.

  • May 2022: Kourtney and Travis legally marry in Santa Barbara. One week later, they wed in Portofino, Italy surrounded by family.

  • June 2022: Kourtney confirms she is pregnant by posting an Instagram photo of Travis cradling her belly.

This whirlwind, semi-public romance only amplifies the interest in their baby on the way! Kourtney once called Travis her "perfect match," and fans are eager to see this next chapter in their fairytale.

Kourtney‘s Birth Plan – What We Know

While Kourtney and Travis haven‘t publicly spoken about a birth plan, here are some details that have been reported:

  • Kourtney may opt for a home birth this time around. A source said "She loves the comfort of her own home and surroundings."

  • She reportedly spoke to a midwife about having a natural birth. This aligns with her previous pregnancies.

  • If she does deliver in a hospital, Cedars Sinai in LA is the most likely choice as it‘s known for high-profile births.

  • There‘s a rumor she may use a surrogate, but this is unconfirmed. Kourtney seemed to shut this down posting "Fake news" on Instagram.

  • Travis reportedly joked they should have a tour bus birth like his Blink-182 bandmate did. But this also seems unlikely!

  • Kourtney‘s sister Khloe acted as her delivery coach in the past. She may fill this role again.

So while we don‘t know for sure, a home birth attended by a midwife seems like the best bet based on reports. This would certainly match Kourtney‘s previous natural births.

The Big Reveal – Name, Photo and More

The world is waiting not just to learn when Baby Barker-Kardashian arrives, but the name reveal too!

If we look at Kourtney‘s previous births for clues:

  • She announced both Penelope and Reign‘s names on Instagram about 1 month after giving birth.

  • Mason‘s name was shared on Kourtney‘s blog about 3 weeks post-birth.

  • It was over 2 months before the first photos of Reign were shared, while Penelope‘s debut pictures came after 1 month.

So we likely have over a month to wait before getting all the details! Kourtney clearly takes her time and chooses her moment carefully.

It‘s anyone guess whether we‘ll get the first peek at the newborn on Kourtney‘s lifestyle blog Poosh or her Instagram page this time around.

Some fans think she‘ll choose a name that starts with a "T" to match Travis. But the only clue we have to go off is that Travis joked the baby‘s name "better be badass." Cryptic indeed!

The Wait Is Almost Over!

If all the clues are to be believed, the arrival of Kourtney and Travis‘ bundle of joy is right around the corner.

While only time will tell exactly when the newest Barker-Kardashian makes their big debut, the context clues definitely point to Kourtney giving birth sooner than her estimated due date.

Between Travis‘ mysterious social media posts and abrupt departure from London, it seems something is up!

Now we‘re just playing the waiting game until Kourtney and Travis announce the thrilling news. It will surely break the internet when they finally debut the first glimpse of their baby.

In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for any more clues from the couple that baby‘s arrival is imminent. The countdown is on!
