Alabama Barker Shares Feelings About Kourtney Kardashian’s Pregnancy & We’ll Be Keeping Tabs on This Blended Family

The Kar-Bar fam (can we make that name a thing?!) is patiently awaiting the arrival of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s son. The couple had a serious scare earlier this month when Kardashian had to have an “urgent fetal surgery.”

“I will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our babies [sic] life,” she wrote in an emotional post on Instagram. “I am eternally grateful to my husband who rushed to my side from [his Blink-182] tour to be with me in the hospital and take care of me afterwards, my rock. And to my mom, thank you for holding my hand through this … I have a whole new understanding and respect for the mamas who have had to fight for their babies while pregnant.”

Thankfully, little baby Barker and his mama — who is also mom to Mason 13, Penelope, 11, and Reign, 8, who she shares with ex Scott Disick — seem to be doing much better. Especially given her latest leather bumpdate. “Pregnancy is so empowering,” the Lemme founder captioned a post on Instagram.

We have to imagine everyone in the Kar-Bar family — including Barker’s kids Atiana De La Hoya, 24, Landon, 19, and Alabama, 17, who he shares with ex Shanna Moakler — is so happy that Kardashian is recovering well. Alabama recently shared her feelings about having a new little sibling with E! News.

“I just think having another family member is always awesome,” she said. “Getting to know a new person, it’s gonna be so fun and so exciting!”

It makes us so happy to hear that the teen is so excited about her blended family growing. In July, a source told Us Weekly that Kardashian and Barker are “having their kids contribute to the list” of potential baby names. Just a reminder, that’s six kids between the ages of 8 and 24! That’s a lot of opinions, and the family was already struggling to come to a decision.
