Shanna Moakler shares her son, Landon, 20, and daughter Alabama, 18, with Travis Barker.

"It is a topic that I don’t think a lot of people have really scratched the surface on and really have a clear understanding and it happens to both men and women. Both mothers and fathers," the former Miss New York USA winner explained before throwing shade at her ex-husband.

Regarding the birth of his and the Poosh founder's baby boy, Shanna said she is "happy" for the couple despite previously slamming their "f------ weird" marriage last year.

"I really don’t have anything positive to say about it," she said during an appearance on Rachel Uchitel’s podcast in April 2023, claiming: "It’s not because I’m bitter, and I’m definitely not jealous."
