Celebrity couple Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker were recently sighted departing from the renowned Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. The pair, renowned for their influential presence in reality television and the music industry, appeared to embark on their journey home on Tuesday, November 7.

The exclusive photographs, as captured by TMZ, showcased Kardashian, aged 43, opting for a discreet yet chic all-black ensemble, complemented with sunglasses, as she settled into the passenger seat. Barker, aged 47, mirrored her style in an all-black attire of his own, taking the wheel as they left the medical facility.

Speculations are rife, though unconfirmed, whether their newborn son, lovingly named Rocky Thirteen, accompanied them in the vehicle. The birth of Kardashian and Barker's first child together was officially verified on Saturday, November 4, by Us Weekly.

Kardashian is already a devoted mother to her three children, Mason (13), Reign (8), and Penelope (11), from her previous relationship with Scott Disick. Barker brings his own paternal experiences to their blended family, co-parenting Landon (20) and Alabama (17) with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler and also playing a parental role to Moakler’s daughter Atiana (23), from her prior engagement to Oscar De La Hoya.

Sources close to the couple have shared the joyous news, stating, "They have a beautiful baby boy. They are both elated." Their journey to parenthood together was affectionately announced by Kardashian in June during a Blink-182 concert.

In a creative nod to the band's iconic "All the Small Things" music video, she held a handwritten sign proclaiming, "Travis, I’m pregnant." In the weeks leading up to the birth, Barker hinted at the anticipated arrival of their "Halloween" baby and disclosed the unique name they had chosen.

He spoke of the due date during an October episode of the “One Life One Chance With Toby Morse” podcast, mentioning "Rocky Thirteen Barker."

Kardashians' Fertility Journey

Kardashian and Barker, who exchanged vows in May 2022, have openly shared their fertility struggles.

In a poignant Instagram post in September, Kardashian expressed her profound gratitude for the medical team who performed emergency surgery, saving their baby’s life, and for Barker, who interrupted his tour with Blink-182 to support her.

Her heartfelt message thanked her mother for her unwavering support during the unforeseen medical emergency. The couple’s devotion to their growing family was further evidenced by Kardashian's decision to prioritize her health, even if it meant missing significant family events, such as her sister Kim Kardashian's 43rd birthday celebration.

Insiders emphasized that while Kardashian was in good health, the bed rest was purely a precaution as the due date approached. As the family of five turns a new leaf with the addition of baby Rocky Thirteen, the couple's resolve and dedication through their journey stand as a testament to their strength and unity. The celebrity world and their fans eagerly await further glimpses into their life with their newest member.
