Is the Kourtney and Travis Wedding Real?

Published on: April 7, 2022 (Updated on: April 22, 2024)

The Kardashians did it again just recently when Kourtney Kardashian (42) tied the knot in a "secret" wedding with Travis Barker (46) after the recent Grammys at a Las Vegas Chapel by the name of One Love Wedding Chapel.

That isn't news anymore. What is causing tongues to wag in social circles and the showbiz world is whether their romance and everything leading to their wedding are real or not. Of course, some think that the whole romance to wedding thing ain't real. So to set everybody's mind at ease, body language specialist Judi Williams decided to point out several key moments in their romantic, or will I say Showmantic life.

First off, she pointed out their Showy PDA (Public Displays of Affection), which included among other things, a bathtub make-out session in Disneyland while being made to look like a script from a sex manual, isn't what most fans think. Next, she talked about how their handhold position as they walk together at the Grammy suggests that Travis will always take the lead in the relationship.

She pointed out several other observations from the showy proposal to the "sham" wedding and everything in between, like their engagement proposal and others which I won't delve much into. Suffice it to say that the couple really love each other and have made efforts to merge each other's kids by going on ski trips and theme park events together. Travis has two kids aged 18 and 16 from a previous marriage to Shanna Moakler, who went south, and Kourtney had three kids for ex-lover Scott Disick.

Truth is, while it seems that the Showmance of Travis and Kourtney is a whirlwind shenanigan, the pair actually met back in 2006 when Travis was dating Paris, a friend of Kim. He had gotten attracted to and even flirted with Kim because of her curvy figure but ended up falling for Kourtney instead. Travis also inspired the Kardashian sisters to host their own show, which was inspired by his fly-on-the-wall series "Meet the Barkers." This suggests that their relationship grew from a platonic stage to what led to their open display of love.

That said, many opinions have aired, and scepticism has have been allayed. However, one thing is certain: this couple love each other and are doing their all to make it work, including the idea of having a baby through IVF.

Time will tell if this romance will last or fizzle out as it did with their ex(es). Until then, we wait and really hope for the best for them.
