Kourtney Kardashian Reveals Devastating Reason Why She Was in the Hospital | On Saturday, Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian were seen walking out of a medical center in LA – both of whom looked somber before entering a black SUV.

UPDATE 9/6/2023: Kourtney Kardashian speaks out for the first time since photos showed her and her husband Travis leaving a local California hospital.

On September 6, Kourtney took to Instagram, sharing a photo of Travis holding her hand while she lay in a hospital bed while revealing that she underwent emergency fetal surgery to save her baby’s life. “I will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby’s life,” Kourtney began her statement.

“I am eternally grateful to my husband who rushed to my side from tour to be with me in the hospital and take care of me afterwards, my rock. And to my mom, thank you for holding my hand through this. As someone who has had three really easy pregnancies in the past, I wasn’t prepared for the fear of rushing into urgent fetal surgery. I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear. I have a whole new understanding and respect for the mamas who have had to fight for their babies while pregnant.”

Kourtney concluded her statement, writing, “Praise be to God. Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing. ????????????”

Although neither Kourtney nor Travis have spoken out about the urgent family matter, a source has told People that Kourtney is “back home now with her kids,” adding: “She is feeling better. She is happy to have Travis back home too.”

On Friday (September 1), fans of Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian were sent into panic mode when the former was forced to postpone several Blink-182 tour dates in the United Kingdom due to an ‘urgent family matter.’ It was unclear what the family emergency was and details have yet to be disclosed. 

The news broke in the wee hours of the morning as Barker traveled from Glasgow, Scotland to Los Angeles to be with his wife. On Saturday (September 2), new photographs showed the couple walking out of a medical center in the LA area – both of whom looked somber as they made their way to a black SUV. 

In the photos, Kourtney was wearing a gray long-sleeved shirt with matching grey pants and gray New Balance shoes. She was still very much pregnant – she’s due sometime between October and December – and was walking on her own. At this point, that’s one positive to take away from this whole situation.

Around that same time, Barker’s popular band (Blink-182) revealed that they were postponing four tour dates in the UK area. They were scheduled to perform at OVO Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland on Sept. 1 and 2, the SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland on Sept. 4, and 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland on Sept. 4. 

“Due to an urgent family matter, Travis has had to return home to the States. The Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin shows are being postponed. More information in regards to his return to Europe and rescheduled dates will be provided as soon as available,” the band wrote on their official social media accounts. 

Once news of the ‘urgent family matter’ went viral, many people alluded to the fact that Kourtney was pregnant – let’s be honest, we were all hoping she and the baby were okay. While it’s still unclear what the emergency was regarding, it’s good to see the couple leaving the hospital on their own two feet.

When Blink-182 postponed those four shows on Saturday, we knew this was a serious matter – and so did Shanna Moakler, the ex-wife of Travis Barker. She immediately spoke with photographers in Los Angeles on Friday and, while she didn’t have any details to share, she did say she was praying for them.

“I don’t know what’s going on, I just know that our kids are safe and sound — obviously that’s important to me,” she said to photographers. “Obviously, whenever they have to cancel shows, it’s a really big deal. I’m just praying that his immediate family — and the baby and Kourtney and everyone — is safe and OK.”
