Travis and I want to have a baby, and so my doctor took us down this road of doing IVF,” the Poosh creator, 42, said in the second episode of The Kardashians, which dropped on Thursday, April 21. “Like, it hasn’t been the most amazing experience.”

In a conversation with her mom, 66, the Los Angeles native opened up about “rude” Instagram trolls commenting on her weight gain amid IVF.

“Every single person on social media is always like ‘Kourtney’s pregnant, Kourtney’s pregnant, Kourtney’s gained so much weight,’” Kardashian explained. “It’s so rude to comment on people when you have no idea what they’re actually going through. The medication they’re giving me, they put me into menopause. … Literally into menopause.”

In the show’s initial trailer, Kardashian and the Blink-182 member, 46, attended doctor appointments together. The drummer was instructed to “put [a] sample in [a] cup,” and his fiancée joked, “Turn the mics off. You don’t get the audio [for that].”

Kardashian is already the mother of Mason, 12, Penelope, 9, and Reign, 7, with her ex Scott Disick, while the drummer shares Landon, 18, and Alabama, 16, with ex-wife Shanna Moakler.

The Grammy nominee proposed to the reality star in October 2021. Four months later, a source exclusively told Us Weekly that expanding their family was “a no-brainer for both of them.”

The insider added at the time that the pair had “set their hearts on a big family and agreed there was no point in delaying or waiting to be married first,” noting that it was “only a matter of time” before the couple conceived their first child together.

“Right when they got serious, Kourt and Travis decided to put effort into getting pregnant,” the source went on to say. While the former E! personality and the Meet the Barkers alum were “trying to get there the natural way,” they were also “looking at IVF.”

The University of Arizona grad documented her egg freezing process in 2018 Keeping Up With the Kardashians episodes, telling Sarah Hyland during an Ellen DeGeneres Show segment three years later that the process gave her “peace of mind.”

Earlier this month, the couple said “I do” in a wedding ceremony following the Grammys in Las Vegas. “Found these in my camera roll,” Kardashian captioned an Instagram slideshow of the nuptials on April 6. “Once upon a time in a land far, far away (Las Vegas) at 2am, after an epic night and a little tequila, a queen and her handsome king ventured out to the only open chapel with an Elvis and got married (with no license). Practice makes perfect.”

Although it wasn’t legal, the pair felt like it was — and had every intention of actually getting married. “It’s not called fake married,” she said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on the same day. “There was no possibility to get a marriage license at that hour.”
