Blink-182 was forced to postpone concerts in Europe last week so Travis Barker could tend to an “urgent family matter.” Now Barker’s wife Kourtney Kardashian is opening up about the emergency saying she had to undergo an urgent fetal surgery.
“I will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby’s life. I am eternally grateful to my husband who rushed to my side from tour to be with me in the hospital and take care of me afterwards, my rock. And to my mom, thank you for holding my hand through this,” the Kardashians star shared on Instagram.

She continued, “As someone who has had three really easy pregnancies in the past, I wasn’t prepared for the fear of rushing into urgent fetal surgery. I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear. I have a whole new understanding and respect for the mamas who have had to fight for their babies while pregnant.”
“Praise be to God. Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing.”
Last week, Blink-182 postponed two concerts in Glasgow, Belfast and Dublin due an emergency.
“Due to an urgent family matter, Travis has had to return home to the States. The Glasgow, Belfast, and Dublin shows are being postponed. More information in regards to his return to Europe and rescheduled dates will be provided as soon as available,” read a statement.
