Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are engaged, and we have all the details on her massive Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring!
Gear up for another elaborate Kardashian engagement story! We covered Kim and Kanye’s engagement (RIP Kimye) previously. Unfortunately the marriage didn’t last, but who can forget her gorgeous 15 carat diamond diamond from the same jeweler.
Let’s get to know the happy couple!
Even if you’ve never seen a single episode of Keeping up With the Kardashians, you likely know of the infamous family.
And if you’re a 90’s/early 2000’s kid- you definitely know Kourtney’s fiancé Travis Barker from his early punk rock band days.
Kourtney is the oldest of the famous sibling tribe, which includes Khloe and Kim, and half sisters Kendall and Kylie. The family rose to fame on Entertainment’s bingeable series- Keeping up with the Kardashians.
The show launched Kourtney’s career in modeling, social media influencing, and acting.
She’s been a brand ambassador for beauty products, Coca-Cola, and even prescription drugs. Rumor has it she’s paid upwards of $300,000 per social media post for endorsing products.
Barker worked as a Laguna Beach trash man prior to joining band Blink 182 in 1997. He was filling in for Blink’s original drummer, who had been fired from the band.
Accounts say that Barker learned the drum tracks for the 20-song setlist in just few hours before the show, and performed them flawlessly.
Then, Blink 182 experienced major success with their first record featuring Barker– Enema of the State. Three singles were released and crossed over to Top 40 radio. They even made the top 10 of Billboard’s Top 100 chart.
Since his initial success, Barker has founded a couple of other rock bands, collaborated with other famous artists, and been featured on several reality TV shows.
How did Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker Meet?
Kourtney and Travis go way back. The live in the same Calabasas, California, gated community and were often spotted grabbing a casual bite or attending events together over the years.
It wasn’t long before a flirty bond formed. Dating rumors emerged, and the couple finally confirmed their romance this February on Instagram. Both Kourtney and Travis posted the same photo– a close up of their hands holding.
The proposal was a complete surprise for Kourtney. Travis planned the sunset event at the Rosewood Miramar Beach resort hotel in Montecito. A source close to the couple revealed to People.com that it’s a favorite location for short, weekend getaways.
Barker arranged a beach side proposal featuring a massive heart-shaped floral arrangement surrounded by candles. Instagram photos show Barker kneeling on one knee and asking Kourtney for her hand in marriage.
She so obviously said YES! Another source told People.com that “Kourtney is of course ecstatic. She can’t wait to marry Travis. She would also love to have a baby with him.”
Fans will actually get to see the affair unfold on her upcoming Hulu series.
