Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker ‘praying for a miracle’ as they continue their IVF journey

Kourtney Kardashian and her fiancé Travis Barker are said to be ‘praying for a miracle’ as they continue their efforts to conceive and have their first child together.

‘[Kourtney] feels like she’s almost at the age of having kids, so it’s almost like her last chance,” a source told Us Weekly on Wednesday.

Kourtney, 42, is currently undergoing IVF treatment to help her conceive, which is a process the couple considers ‘serious’.

IVF, which stands for in vitro fertilization, is commonly used by women or couples who are struggling to conceive naturally.

This involves removing eggs from the ovaries, which are then fertilized by sperm in a laboratory, before being transferred to the uterus.

Travis, 46, ‘full support [Kourtney] every step’ and journey only brings the ‘very close’ couple closer.

‘The trip only confirmed their bond and love for each other.’

Kourtney would be ‘delighted’ to have a baby with Travis ‘especially as they are getting married and soon to be officially husband and wife,’ the insider added.

“Her relationship with Travis was filmed so it was important for her to share her pregnancy journey as well,” the source said.

“They are very committed to each other and raising their children as a mixed family but look forward to having children together.”

Kourtney is already a mother of three children – Mason, 12, Penelope, nine, and Reign, seven – and insiders insist the star just ‘loves getting pregnant.’

She shares the trio with ex-boyfriend Scott Disick, 38.

Travis is no stranger to parenthood as he shares daughter Alabama, 16, and son Landon, 18, with ex-wife Shanna Moakler, 47.

Mixed couples are said to be ‘just as excited about the possibility of having another sibling’ as a potentially pregnant couple.

Ultimately, teens Travis, Landon and Alabama ‘just want their dad to be happy’ and have formed a ‘close’ bond with Kourtney’s kids.

‘[They] fully support whatever makes her happy,” the source said.

Kourtney recently talked about her fertility struggles and how tough it was both mentally and physically.

“It’s a beautiful thing that we wanted to happen, but the journey has been a bit tough for any woman to do it,” she told Entertainment Tonight.

Last month, a leaked trailer for the family’s new reality series, The Kardashians, showed the reality star in the process of becoming pregnant with Barker while the couple visited a specialist.

‘And emotional,’ adds Kourtney’s sister, Khloe, who also had an experience as challenging as the in vitro fertilization documented in season 20 of KUWTK.

Kourtney also claimed last month that IVF treatment ’caused her menopause’, causing her to gain weight due to fluctuating estrogen levels.

Menopause is a natural part of aging that usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55, as a woman’s estrogen levels decline. Research on whether in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment can trigger menopause is sparse and unproven.

‘Travis and I want to have a baby,’ he says in voiceover as a recording of the Blink-182 drummer proposing on the beach is shown.

Kourtney also shared her frustration over the ‘rude’ comments she recently received about her weight gain, which she said was also fueled by her IVF medication.

“I’m, like, very rude to comment on people when you don’t know what they’re going through,” he said.

‘The drugs they gave me, they put me through menopause. Literally entering menopause.’

Many women preparing for IVF will be given one or more forms of fertility drugs by their doctor, which are used to trigger the release of hormones that then stimulate egg production.

Kris looked confused, replying, ‘Based on what? Drug?’ with Kourtney responding, ‘Yes,’ although she did not specify what medications she was taking as part of her fertility treatment.

Kourtney doesn’t clarify in the clip whether she’s still menopausal, or whether she’s simply experiencing menopause-like symptoms, which include irregular periods, hot flashes, chills, night sweats — and weight gain.

Fertility drugs are known to cause symptoms very similar to those experienced during menopause, including hot flashes, weight gain, mood changes, and bloating.
