  • Kourtney Kardashian Barker revealed that she underwent "urgent fetal surgery."

  • She's currently pregnant with her and husband Travis Barker's first child together.

  • Barker left the Blink-182 tour for an "urgent family matter" on Friday, postponing several stops.

Kourtney Kardashian Barker revealed that she underwent "urgent fetal surgery" in order to save her unborn son's life, after her husband Travis Barker paused his band Blink-182's tour for a family matter.

In an Instagram post Wednesday, Kardashian Barker thanked doctors for "saving our baby's life." Accompanied by a black-and-white image of her and Barker holding hands, she also expressed gratitude to Barker for coming home to be by her side, and to her mother for "holding my hand" throughout the experience.


"As someone who has had three really easy pregnancies in the past, I wasn't prepared for the fear of rushing into urgent fetal surgery," Kardashian wrote in the Instagram post. "I don't think anyone who hasn't been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear."

The reality star and Lemme founder said that leaving the hospital still carrying her healthy, unborn baby was "the truest blessing."

Barker also released a statement on X, formerly known as Twitter, explaining why he had left the Blink-182 tour.

"God is great," the drummer wrote. "I flew home for a life-threatening emergency surgery for our baby that I'm so grateful went well. I want to say thank you for all the support. Tour resumes Friday."

The official Blink-182 X account announced on Friday that Barker needed to return to the United States for an "urgent family matter," postponing shows in Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin.

Kardashian Barker revealed that she was pregnant in June, appearing to surprise Barker with the news at a Blink-182 concert. Later that month, she revealed that they were expecting a boy.

The couple has openly documented their attempts to conceive on "The Kardashians." In season one, they were shown undergoing fertility treatments. In season three, the couple tracked Kardashian Barker's cycle, asking Khloé Kardashian to wait several minutes for a conversation so they could have sex while Kardashian Barker was ovulating.

Kardashian currently has three children — Mason, Penelope, and Reign — with her ex Scott Disick. Barker currently has three children from his previous marriage to Shanna Moakler: Landon, Alabama, and Atiana de la Hoya. The child Kardashian Barker is currently pregnant with will be their first together.
