In a touching display of early fatherhood, Travis Barker, the iconic drummer for Blink-182, has found a rhythm with his newborn son, Rocky Thirteen, that goes beyond the usual lullabies. In a unique musical introduction, Barker was seen syncing drum beats to the little one's heartbeat during a prenatal visit, an experience he shared with fans in a heartwarming video.
The clip, released on TikTok on November 9th, captures Barker clad in a skeleton-themed outfit, masterfully matching his drum strikes with the pulsating heartbeat echoing in the background.
This creative bonding session comes shortly after Barker and his partner, Kourtney Kardashian, made headlines with the birth of their son.

The couple, who have maintained a degree of privacy around their newborn, have yet to formally announce Rocky's birth. Still, the name "Rocky Thirteen" holds special significance for Barker, drawing inspiration from his favorite film series and preferred number, suggesting that the rhythm of boxing and beats will be a staple in this child's life.
Rhythmic Paternal Bond
The significance of music in Barker's life is well-documented, and his latest gesture indicates that it will be a foundational aspect of his son's upbringing. Fans are already speculating about Rocky's future musical prowess, with one commenter humorously noting, "Now that's an entrance," while another optimistically predicts a beat-driven future, saying, "It's going to be a beat of a song, guarantee." Rocky's arrival marks a new addition to Barker and Kardashian's sizeable blended family.
Kardashian is already a mother to three with former partner Scott Disick: Mason, Penelope, and Reign. Barker has two children, Landon and Alabama, from his previous marriage to Shanna Moakler, and is a stepfather to Atiana De La Hoya.
With each child bringing their unique beat to the family ensemble, the Barkers continue to blend their lives harmoniously. As the world tunes in to witness these personal moments, the couple's celebrity status and the public's fascination with their personal journey make such intimate shares all the more resonant.
Whether or not Rocky follows in his father's musical footsteps, one thing is certain: he's been born into a family where love and music are plentiful, and his life's tempo is set to be as exciting as it is unique.
