Kourtney Kardashian has shared the details of her emergency foetal surgery that led to the cancellation of her husband Travis Barker’s show with Blink 182 in Glasgow.

The reality star – who is married to the Blink 182 drummer – was forced to undergo the procedure while still pregnant with her son Rocky Thirteen because there was fluid in the baby’s lungs.

The reality star revealed last year she underwent an emergency operation to save the life of her unborn child.

She has now revealed this was because of a rare condition that caused fluid to build up in the baby’s lungs.

Kardashian, 45, was taken to hospital in September 2023 while she was pregnant with their first child together.

Travis Barker was due to perform with his band at the OVO Hydro on September 1, with the show rescheduled at the last minute due to “an urgent family matter”.

The band will return in August 2024 to perform.

Explaining the reason in the latest episode of the reality series The Kardashians, she said: “We had a terrifying scare.

“It’s super rare — the condition that he had — but it’s also super rare and lucky that we caught it.

“Thank you, God, for a successful surgery. I’m honestly just so grateful, I have no words.”

She added: “The fluid in his lungs actually did start coming back.

“Then I watched this documentary called Heal that was all about the power of positive thinking and how our thinking can really affect our health.

“I started talking to the baby every day, saying my prayers. After I had that mindset shift, the fluid was completely gone and we had not one single problem after.”

Kardashian first revealed she had had surgery in an Instagram post in September when she said she was “eternally grateful” to Barker, 48, who was due to play gigs across the UK and Ireland but travelled back to the US so that he could be by her side.

Their baby son was born on November 1.

Kardashian and Barker both have three children from previous relationships.
