Kourtney Kardashian is living her best life—bible.

The Kardashians star showed off her baby bump in a series of vacation pics. Posing in a red bikini and black sunglasses, the carousel of photos sees Kourtney all over a beautiful waterfront estate—cradling her stomach as she walks up a cobblestone pathway, ascends a set of stone steps, looks out onto the water and lounges on a pool float.

And the soon-to-be mom of four gave a sweet shoutout to her and husband Travis Barker's baby boy, captioning the Aug. 8 Instagram post, "Growing you inside of me, my son, is the greatest blessing, honor and joy."

The Blink-182 drummer gushed over the photoshoot, commenting, "The most beautiful," with a pregnant woman emoji.

Kourtney's post comes days after she and Travis took a romantic getaway ahead of welcoming their first baby together in Santa Barbara, Calif. And it's a location that holds a special place in their hearts as it's where they got engaged in 2021, before having a legal courthouse ceremony there a year later.

Kourtney Kardashian & Travis Barker's Blended Family Photos

During Kourtney and Travis' staycation, she shared a video of an oceanfront view from their balcony, followed by the sun, a pink car parked among the palm trees and a night snap of the moon shining above the sandy beach and its waves.

Kourtney first announced she was expecting at the Blink-182 concert in Los Angeles in June, by holding up a sign that read, "Travis I'm Pregnant," referencing the music video to his band's 1998 hit "All the Small Things." A few weeks later, she and Travis threw a sex reveal party, where blue confetti and streamers burst out of a cannon to signify they were having a boy.

The baby news comes a year after Kourtney first got candid on her journey with in vitro fertilization (IVF).

"It hasn't been the most amazing experience," she shared on an April 2022 episode of The Kardashians, noting that the medication she was on had the "complete opposite reaction" of what she wanted at the time. "I just feel a little bit off. I'm super moody and hormonal."

But these days, Kourtney has begun the countdown to her baby boy joining the Kardashian-Barker brood and the pair's son will have no shortage of older siblings to have his back. 

The little one will join Kourtney's kids Mason Disick, 13; Penelope Disick, 11; and Reign Disick, 8—who she shares with ex Scott Disick—as well as Travis' son Landon Barker, 19; daughter Alabama Barker 17; and stepdaughter Atiana De La Hoya, 24, with ex-wife Shanna Moakler.
