Kourtney Kardashian feels ‘happy’ in ‘positive’ relationship with Travis Barker

Kourtney Kardashian couldn't be happier after going official with her new boyfriend, Travis Barker, according to sources.

The pair had been surrounded by speculation for several weeks that their friendship had grown into a blossoming romance, six years after they are believed to have met for the first time.

Kourtney, 41, and Travis, 45, had been seen enjoying date nights out in Los Angeles, with pictures emerging of the two holding hands over a dinner table.

Keen to end all speculation, Kourt took to her Instagram account to share the exciting news with her 111 million followers, posting a picture of her and her new beau holding hands, with Travis' recognisable tattoos on full display.

Speaking to People, an insider said: "Kourtney is very happy with Travis, she wanted to confirm their relationship because it's something positive."

The source went on to say: "She was single for a while and didn't expect that their relationship would turn romantic.

Kourtney and Travis are said to have met over six years ago when Kourt's younger sister, Khloé Kardashian moved onto the same gated road as the musician in Calabasas, California.

Travis and his ex-wife Shanna have also featured in several episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians as their son, Landon, 17, is pals with Kourt's eldest son, Mason.

Their romance is Kourtney's first public relationship following her split from long-term boyfriend, Scott Disick, who she split from in 2015 following a 12-year relationship.
