Kourtney Kardashian is getting honest about her pregnancy journey with husband Travis Barker.

During her appearance on Dear Media's “Not Skinny But Not Fat” podcast, The Kardashians star admitted her age played a factor in the pressure she and the drummer felt, saying, “If you even look anything up online about things you can do to help get pregnant … it says on there, like, ‘If you’re over 40’ — or it might even say something younger — it says, ‘Go right away.'"

Kardashian and Barker tied the knot in May in an intimate courthouse ceremony and again in Italy after getting engaged in October 2021. (They first said "I Do" in April in Las Vegas sans a wedding license.)

The Poosh founder is already mom to sons Mason, 12, Reign, 7, as well as daughter Penelope, 10, from her previous relationship to on-and-off ex-beau Scott Disick. Barker shares son Landon, 18, and daughter Alabama, 16, with his ex-wife, Shanna Moakler. He also has an extremely close relationship with 23-year-old former stepdaughter Atiana.

Ever since Kardashian and Barker turned their long-time friendship into a romantic relationship, they have done "hard" work to blend their brood, which has been made "easier" given how long they have been in each other's lives.

“There are so many emotions involved with so many kids," Kardashian pointed out during her podcast appearance. The reality star credited her and Barker being at a "really good place" to how they are able to be "patient" and take things "slow" when it comes to making sure their kids are at a "comfortable place."
