Khloé Kardashian chimed in, calling the experience “emotional” for Kourtney as well.

Grammy nominee Kardashian and Grammy nominee Kanye West made public their relationship in January 2021. The couple got engaged in October of the same year.
“Right when they got serious, Kourt and Travis decided to put effort into getting pregnant,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly after Barker’s proposal. “It was a no-brainer for both of them because they’ve set their hearts on a big family and agreed there was no point in delaying or waiting to be married first.”
The Los Angeles native confirmed this news in a March trailer The Kardashians, saying, “Travis and I want to have a baby.” The footage also showed Kardashian and Barker attending a doctor appointment together.
The couple was in the news earlier this month after their post-Grammys Las Vegas ceremony. The bride clarified the matter in a Wednesday, 6 April.Jimmy Kimmel Live! appearance that despite not having a marriage license, the couple don’t consider themselves to be “fake married.”
The University of Arizona grad explained, “There was no possibility to get a marriage license at that hour. … I’m like, ‘Are you guys serious?’ We asked, like, five times. ‘What do we have to do to make this happen?’ It was 2 a.m. and they were like, ‘It opens at 8 o’clock.’”
Kardashian captured the nuptials on Instagram in a slideshow. “Found these in my camera roll,” she wrote. “Once upon a time in a land far, far away (Las Vegas) at 2am, after an epic night and a little tequila, a queen and her handsome king ventured out to the only open chapel with an Elvis and got married (with no license). Practice makes perfect.”
As for the groom, Barker wrote in a post of his own: “What happens in Vegas.”
