Watch: Travis Barker Thanks "AMAZING WIFE" Kourtney Kardashian

Travis Barker just reached a major milestone.

And he gave a sweet shout-out to his wife Kourtney Kardashian for all her support. 

"Just flew for the 30th time since my plane crash," the Blink-182 drummer posted on Threads July 12. "Wouldn't be able to tour or enjoy life again the way I do without the healing love of my amazing wife. I love you @kourtneykardash." 

Of course, the Kardashians star sent the love right back. Resharing the post to her Instagram Stories, she wrote, "So proud of my husband."

Travis and his friend Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein were the sole survivors of a 2008 plane crash that killed four people (Adam died of an accidental drug overdose the following year).

As Travis recalled during a 2015 episode of Larry King Now, 65 percent of his body was covered in third-degree burns and he underwent 27 surgeries. He added, "It's the most painful experience, obviously, I've ever been in." 

Pregnant Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's Road to Baby

In 2021, the "I Miss You" artist posted a picture from his first flight since the crash that showed him and Kourtney embracing.

"With you," he wrote on Instagram, "anything is possible."



And the musician spoke about how he and the Lemme mogul support each other.

"We're very similar, with our backs to the wall," he explained to Billboard in 2022. "We have no quit, and I need someone like that in my life."

Soon, Travis and Kourtney will be supporting each other in a new way—as parents to their first child together. The pair are expecting a baby boy, who will join Kourtney's three children—Mason Disick, 13, Penelope Disick, 11, and Reign Disick, 8—from her previous relationship with Scott Disick and Travis' three kids—son Landon Barker, 19; daughter Alabama Barker, 17, and stepdaughter Atiana de Lay Hoya, 24—from his former marriage to Shanna Moakler.

Kourtney—who announced her pregnancy at a Blink-182 concert in June—has previously spoken about her and Travis' journey to growing their family, including her experience with IVF. And now, she can't wait for their little one to arrive, noting in a June 18 Instagram post that she is "Overwhelmed with gratitude and joy for God's blessing and plan."
