Kourtney Kardashian And Travis Barker's Relationship Timeline, From Friends To Husband And Wife

Up next: A huge wedding bash in Italy.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have tied the knot. After going public with their relationship and announcing their engagement just a few months later, the pair said "I do" on May 15, People reported.

While some might call the duo's series of weddings the result of a whirlwind romance (they've only been ~official~ for just over a year!), the two have been longtime pals. In 2017, Travis recounted a fun "power dinner" with the whole Kardashian clan and his daughter, Alabama Luella Barker, in an Entertainment Tonight interview. Since then, he and Kourtney have been spotted leaving restaurants and other events together over the years, but everything seemed purely platonic until one fateful Instagram comment (more on that in a sec).

Fast forward to May 2022, and the couple is married! So, how did Hollywood's hottest forty-somethings go from friends to legally-bound lovers? Here's a look back at their love story:

January 2021: Travis left flirty comments on Kourtney's Instagrams 👀.

Dating rumors began to swirl around social media after the Blink-182 drummer left several flirty comments on the Keeping up with Kardashians alum’s Instagram photos. Perhaps the most notable one?
