Fans think Kourtney Kardashian’s pregnancy announcement was ‘staged’
Kourtney Kardashian’s recent pregnancy announcement has been met with skepticism from fans. During her husband Travis Barker’s concert, the 44-year-old reality star held up a sign revealing her pregnancy. However, several social media users have questioned whether the news was a surprise to the drummer. Some fans found it hard to believe that Barker didn’t know about the pregnancy based on the couple’s public displays of affection. Others saw the announcement as an homage to Blink-182’s 1999 music video for “All the Small Things.” Kardashian has previously discussed her struggles with IVF in her Hulu show, and the couple has been vocal about wanting a child together. This will be Kardashian’s fourth child, while Barker has a son and daughter with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler and a stepdaughter.
Fans are calling Kourtney Kardashian’s pregnancy announcement kounterfeit.
After the reality star, 44, — who is married to Travis Barker — announced that she was pregnant by holding up a sign during her beau’s concert, social media users shared that they were skeptical about whether the news was actually a surprise to the drummer.
“Kourtney Kardashian announce (sp) that she’s pregnant at the concert and in the video she shows off a baby bump? How is it that Travis didn’t know she was pregnant? Sounds staged,” tweeted one fan.
“Kourtney kardashian telling Travis barker she’s pregnant w a full on baby bump has me weak 😭 like people really think he didn’t know before the concert??” added another.
Others found it suspect that the Blink-182 musician, 47, didn’t know about the pregnancy due to how affectionate the couple has been with their over-the-top public makeout sessions.
“They’re too touchy feely not to know,” wrote one doubtful person.
“Oh my God, I literally said the same thing that man lives inside of her lol,” agreed another.
Some fans, however, saw the special announcement as an homage to Blink-182’s 1999 music video for the song “All the Small Things.”
In the video, the musical trio — which consists of Barker, Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus — spoofs boybands such as Backstreet Boys and *NSync.
The drummer is seen gamboling on the beach with a bikini-clad woman, who later reappears at a Blink-182 concert to announce her pregnancy to Barker by holding up a sign.
“The pregnancy announcement was for us lmfao travis knew she was pregnant look at her😭 Kourtney was at a TS concert less than a month ago and it was so obvious she was expecting,” tweeted one sleuth.
“unless it was just their pregnancy reveal to the public, and they already knew she was expecting. That makes more sense,” theorized another.
“It was them referring to a video from Blink 182 where a fan in the crowd holds up a sign that says ‘Travis I’m Pregnant,’” a user chimed in.

TheFantasyTimes has reached out to Barker and Kardashian’s reps for comment but did not immediately hear back.
The Poosh founder’s pregnancy comes one year after the couple wed in a splashy wedding in Italy.
They have been vocal about their desire to have a child together.
In her Hulu show, Kardashian revealed that she had gone through grueling rounds of IVF and herbal remedies in an attempt to conceive.
But in the May 25 episode of “The Kardashians,” she shared that they were stopping the treatments.
“We are officially done with IVF,” she said during the show. “We would love a baby more than anything, but I just really believe in what God has in store for us. If that’s a baby, then I believe that it will happen.”
This will be the fourth child for Kardashian, who shares three kids — Mason, 13, Penelope, 10, and Reign, 8 — with ex Scott Disick.
Barker, on the other hand, is dad to son Landon, 19, daughter Alabama, 17, and stepdaughter Atiana, 24, with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler.
