Kourtney Kardashian has ended rumours about her relationship status with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, by confirming their romance in a sweet Instagram post.
The 41-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has gone public about her romance with Travis after weeks of speculation that the pair were growing closer.
They have been friends for almost a decade, after finding themselves living opposite each other in Calabasas.
Their friendship has grown into a more romantic relationship after they started dating and the Kardashian family enthusing about their coupling.
Travis has even appeared in KUWTK previously, after his children spent time with Kourtney’s offspring at a birthday party that was filmed for the reality show.
In the Instagram post, Kourtney’s hand is entwined in Travis’s as they give their first public show of affection for each other.
The reality star posted the pic without comment but her post was soon filled with messages of congratulations as more then 650,000 fans liked the post within 30 minutes of it going live.
Among the red hearts posted in reply by her legions of fans, was a comment from one that read: “When friends become lovers.”
It seems that mum Kris Jenner – along with Kourtney’s famous sisters – has nothing but love for the pair’s budding romance.
“He’s liked her for a long time and she just got more open to the idea. He’s a good guy and a really great dad,” a source told People.
“Her family and friends all really like him. Their kids all get along too, which is sweet.”
Meanwhile, another source backed up the same claim, telling E! News: “It’s been very low-key. They are a really good match, and Kourtney’s entire family already loves Travis.
“They have been neighbours and great friends for years, and it just recently turned romantic.”
Between them, Kourtney and Travis have six kids.
Kourt is a proud mum-of-three to sons Mason, 11, and Reign, 6, as well as 8-year-old daughter Penelope, whom she shares with ex Scott Disick.
Kourtney and Scott, 37, ended their nine-year relationship in July 2015 but have remained close friends ever since.
Meanwhile Travis shares stepdaughter Atiana, 21, daughter Alabama, 15, and son Landon, 17, with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler.
