Travis Barker Loves Being a Dad – Meet Atiana, Landon, and Alabama
If we’ve learned anything about Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker over the years, it’s that he loves tattoos and his kids. With their rock-star dad in the spotlight for much of their childhood, Barker’s kids, Landon and Alabama, and their stepsister, Atiana, haven’t had the most conventional upbringing. And they’ve found themselves in the spotlight even more thanks to their dad’s wife, Kourtney Kardashian Barker. Of course, Barker is about to become a dad of four soon as the pair are about to welcome their first child together into the world. Kardashian Barker broke the news that she and Barker are expecting their first child together in July, though unfortunately, things got scary when Kardashian Barker had to undergo emergency fetal surgery in September – but it seems like both mom and baby are currently happy and healthy as her due date approaches.
For his part, Barker has made it known since the beginning that his family is his number one priority. The musician even bought a home near their school when he and his ex-wife Shanna Moakler were separating so the kids would have a home base. “I bought a home that’s very close to my children’s school, so when she’s with the kids, she’s there; when I’m with the kids, I’m there. There’s no making them travel back and forth to different houses,” he explained to People back in 2017.
Whether he’s opening up about his love for his children on Twitter, saying, “I love being a Dad more than anything, best thing to have ever happened in my entire life,” posting sappy throwback photos on Instagram, or enjoying a nice family vacation, Barker is all about dad life – which is probably even busier now with the additions of stepchildren Mason, Penelope, and Reign, Kardashian Barker’s kids from her relationship with Scott Disick. Certainly, things are going to become even busier once his newest child arrives.
On top of that, we can’t help but admire the trio’s close bond, both as siblings and with their dad. During Barker’s sudden hospitalization in the summer of 2022, his daughter Alabama was right by his side to support him, asking fans via her Instagram Story to send prayers, per Us Weekly. Atiana also thanked fans via her Instagram Story for their “outpouring of love and prayers sent our way,” adding, “It is heard, felt, and appreciated.”
