Looks like some congratulations are in order, as Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have taken their “casual relationship” to the next level by going official. Instagram official, that is. And in 2021, things don’t get more official than that, do they?

According to reports, the 41-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been friends with the 45-year-old former Blink 182 drummer for quite a few years now, with many close friends and family members hinting that Travis has had a crush on her for quite some time.

“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,” an insider previously told People.

“Her family and friends all really like him. Their kids all get along too, which is sweet.”

The kids the source was referring to are of course Kourtney’s three children who she shares with ex Scott Disick – Mason, 11, Penelope, 8, and Reign, 6; and Travis Barker’s children Atiana, 21, Landon, 17, and Alabama, 15, who he co-parents with ex-wife and former Miss USA, Shanna Moakler.

Fast forward to Valentine’s Day 2021, and Kourtney has now made no secret of the fact that she is dating the musician, as she shared a picture of their hands clasped together to her Instagram account. How sweet!

And if that wasn’t obvious enough, she also shared a picture of a handwritten Valentine’s Day poem which read, “Roses are red, violets are blue, garlic bread, Blink-182”.

That tells us all we need to know!
