Kourtney and Travis announced their baby news in June, with the mum-of-three recreating a scene from a Blink-182 music video, holding up a sign from the crowd that read: “Travis I’m pregnant.”

They'd been open about their struggles to conceive in The Kardashians, trying rounds of IVF before Kourtney eventually fell pregnant naturally. The happy news came one year after they got married in Portofino, Italy, surrounded by their friends and family in what was one of the most glamorous events of the year.

Since then the reality star has been keeping her followers updated with regular bump photos and snaps of her blossoming figure. They also soon confirmed they were expecting a baby boy.

The Poosh founder shared the sex of her baby just days after announcing the news of her pregnancy. Taking to Instagram in a joint post, the couple shared a clip where she sat on her husband's lap whilst the drummer played on his drum kit. After a drum roll, blue confetti shot into the sky to signify the pair having a baby boy!
