Why Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are saying goodbye to IVF
The couple shared the news during the Season 3 premiere of ‘The Kardashians’.
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are saying goodbye to in vitro fertilization.
The news was revealed by Kourtney during the Season 3 premiere of ‘The Kardashians’ on Wednesday.
“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,” she said.
She also shared that she froze seven of her eggs when she started dating Barker, though most of them didn’t survive, and none of them “made it to an embryo.”
“The freezing of the eggs isn’t guaranteed,” she said.
“I think that that’s a misunderstanding. People do it thinking that it’s like a safety net and it’s not.”
Kourtney added that she and Barker will try having children the natural route.
“Whatever’s meant to be,” said Kourtney, who shares three children - Mason and Penelope with ex Scott Disick, while adding, “Being happy is most important, and being a good parent to my kids.”
Kourtney has spoken about her pregnancy hardships in the past
This isn’t the first time Kourtney has opened about her IVF hardships.
“It hasn’t been the most amazing experience,” she said in a teaser that dropped back in March, adding that IVF made her gain weight.
However, she’s since accepted her changing figure, posting a picture of her “IVF body” in a bikini on Instagram earlier in May.
“Every day, Travis is like, ‘You’re perfect,’” she said on an episode of “The Kardashians” back in October. “If I make one complaint, he’s like, ‘You’re perfect. You’re so fine … You’ve never been better.’”
She also previously revealed that she was nudged into doing IVF due to her age.
“If you even look anything up online about things you can do to help get pregnant … it says on there, like, ‘If you’re over 40′ — or it might even say something younger — it says, ‘Go right away,’” Kourtney said on the ‘Not Skinny But Not Fat’ podcast in October 2022.
“So I felt a little bit pushed.”
Kourtney’s latest revelation comes after the pair revealed they wanted to have a baby in a trailer for the new season of the show.
