Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s relationship is hard to ignore. 

After going public in February 2021, the internet has been subject to a slew of pictures that really, really show how loved up they are.

From the very first Insta official hand-holding pic to kissing-with-alotta-tongue selfies to full-blown mounting each other, we truly get it. They’re into it. 

But the thirsty pics only tell part of the story. 

We take a look back at the Blink-182 frontman and reality TV star’s road to a PDA-filled romance.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s relationship timeline 

Believe it or not, Travis and Kourney had a friendship before they got together romantically. 

We know, it’s hard to believe these two could’ve kept things platonic when they currently can’t seem to keep their hands off each other, but here we are. 

They were first linked all the way back in October 2017 when Travis’ 15-year-old daughter Alabama Luella Barker revealed she’d spent some time with the Kardashian clan. 

“I had dinner with all of them and they were really sweet,” she told Entertainment Tonight. 

Over the next two years, Kourt and Travis sparked numerous dating rumours after being spotted out and about together for dinners, events and even a Hillsong Church Service.

Fast forward to January 2021, the rumours ramped up a notch when fans noticed several flirty comments they directed at each other on Instagram. 

Travis’ red rose emoji beneath a selfie from the reality star was a slight giveaway. 

Rumours continued to swirl when they appeared to be spending some intimate time together. Sharing the same snaps from Kourt’s mum Kris’ Palm Springs pad? It’s like they wanted us to know…

And then came the official reveal. 

Sharing a caption-less Instagram pic of Kourtney’s perfectly manicured hand holding Travis’ tattooed one, the A-list couple were ready to go public. 

From there, the PDAs began. 

Sweetly at first, the pair’s love language appeared to be gift giving. Travis’ impressive flower installation at Kourtney’s home for her birthday was nothing to sneeze at when she later shared it to Instagram. 

And Travis was clearly smitten with Kourt’s “I Love You” note, which he posted on his Instagram Stories. 

But giving gifts quickly turned to physical touch. By April, the pair were freeing the smooch left right and centre as they shared multiple pics embracing, mounting and making out… the lot. 

Honestly, it was Kourt’s “Just Like Heaven” captioned post in the desert with Travis holding her like a Koala for us.

The families clearly get along too – in July 2021, the pair shared pics of a little kid-friendly getaway they shared to Disneyland.

Kourtney’s son Reign and Barker’s kids Alabama and Landon were seen in the cute snap. 

What’s next for this couple is technically unknown, but we’re dead-set clear on one thing: More PDA’s are a-coming.
