During the final stages of her pregnancy, Kourtney Kardashian Barker found herself surrounded by her loving family. Over the weekend, the 44-year-old expectant Lemme founder received a heartfelt shoutout from her sister, Kim Kardashian, who expressed gratitude to her sisters and friends for commemorating her birthday.
Kim Kardashian shared a group photo capturing the enchanting moment when she, her sisters Khloé, Kendall, and Kylie Jenner, along with their mom, Kris Jenner, gathered to celebrate at Funke restaurant in Beverly Hills on Friday. In an Instagram post, she wrote, “So blessed to have hit the jackpot of friends! I couldn’t have ever dreamed I would be so lucky to call these girls my friends ✨ thank you for all the birthday love ❤️.”
Kim also made a special reference to her missing sister, Kourtney, expressing her excitement for an upcoming bed rest picnic, stating, “Kourt, I’m jumping in bed with you next week for our bed rest picnic 🎂.”
On Saturday, Kourtney, the mastermind behind Poosh, paid tribute to her sister Kim, who turned 43, by delving into their history of sibling squabbles. These tensions came to light amid an ongoing feud between the two on the latest season of “The Kardashians.”
“Happy happy birthday to my first sister,” Kourtney shared on her Instagram Story, accompanied by a throwback photo of herself and Kim. She continued, “Thank you for all those years of bossing you around and actually listening to all of my crazy ideas. People think the fights they’ve seen on TV are bad; if only they got to witness the hair-pulling, nail-digging ones from early high school.”
With a touch of humor, Kourtney added, “The joys of sisterhood. I love you deeply, forever and always. May God bless this year with love and happiness and abundant joy ❤️.”
The source of their ongoing feud traces back to an argument over edits from the previous season of their reality show, particularly related to Kim’s partnership with Dolce and Gabbana after they designed Kourtney’s wedding dress.
In a candid interview with Vogue for their November issue, Kourtney, who is expecting her fourth child, her first with husband Travis Barker, reflected on the urgent fetal surgery she underwent in September. She described it as a terrifying experience that opened her eyes to a whole new dimension of pregnancy. Kourtney also highlighted an important lesson learned from the ordeal: that insurance typically only covers two ultrasounds during pregnancy, a fact she was unaware of until then.
“I’ve always been lucky enough to do more than what insurance covers, and it’s one of those ultrasounds that saved my baby’s life,” she explained.
