Kourtney Kardashian Needed Urgent Surgery to Save Unborn Baby
Kourtney Kardashian revealed she underwent life-saving surgery for her and Travis Barker’s unborn son. The Lemme founder took to Instagram Wednesday (September 6) to share a black-and-white photo holding her husband’s hand from the hospital with an IV in her arm. Kourtney, 44, said that she “will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby’s life.” She then thanked her drummer husband for rushing to her side from Blink-182’s tour to be by her side in the hospital and take care of her afterwards. She also thanked her mom, Kris Jenner, for “holding my hand through this.”
Further in her caption, Kourtney said her previous three pregnancies were “really easy,” and she wasn’t prepared for the “fear of rushing into urgent fetal surgery.” She went on to say, “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. Praise be to God. Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing. [praying hands emoji, white heart emoji]”
Over the weekend, Barker’s band Blink-182 had to pause their tour, citing an “urgent family matter.” He was then spotted leaving an LA hospital on Saturday with Kourtney in tow. She was still pregnant while leaving the facility.
In June, Kourtney revealed her baby bump while attending a Blink-182 concert. The reality star was in the crowd holding a sign that read: “Travis: I’m Pregnant.” In the band’s iconic 1999 “All The Small Things” music video, a fan is holding up the same sign. The couple previously tried IVF and stopped after it gave Kourtney health complications. They decided to go the natural route and are now expecting their first child together.
