Longtime fans are already aware that Kourtney Kardashian has struggled with IVF.
It’s not just that she and Travis Barker did not see immediate success — though, obviously, they did not.
Her body actually had undesired responses to standard IVF medications, leading Kourt to feel very frustrated.
A new report explains how Kourtney and Travis’ ongoing fertility struggle remains a “struggle.”
An inside source opened up to Us Weekly on Tuesday to discuss Kourtney and Travis’ family planning.
“They both want another child,” the insider confirmed.
“And,” the source continued, they both “want to expand their family.”
“But most importantly,” the insider emphasized, “they really want a child together.”
In the past, we have heard that the couple are open to alternatives for growing their family.
But clearly, they still have their hearts set on IVF treatments working out.
Anyone who is curious for more direct insight (as in, no inside sources) into their journey will get their wish.
According to the report, Kourtney and Travis’ “pregnancy story is going to unfold more” on Hulu.
Season 2 of The Kardashians will feature the couple’s IVF efforts, including some setbacks.
Kourtney and Travis are now married, of course.
Their Season 2 storyline will reportedly “very much focus on” their efforts to conceive and the “struggle” involved.
The new season will premiere in September … which is coming sooner than you think.
Obviously, Season 1 already followed the couple as they began their quest to grow their blended family.
They knew that they wanted to have a kid together.
They visited a fertility specialist, and jumped through some (at times absurd) hoops together to try to make it happen.
Kourtney is already a mother. Travis is already a father.
It’s not that they lack children or fulfillment.
But clearly, they want to go on a parenthood journey together just as they have with their exes.
Kourtney would like to conceive as naturally as possible.
Part of her lifestyle (not to mention her lifestyle brand) involves an almost pathological fixation on doing things the “natural” way.
But if their current steps do not pan out, reports say that the two will continue to look at other options.
Truth be told, IVF is likely to work unless one or both partners is completely out of viable gametes.
That said, Kourtney has not been the most receptive to some treatments. She may continue to struggle.
Travis’ health history and Kourtney’s issues with hormone treatments could present long-term problems, or short-term hurdles.
Considering the extensive financial means of these two, however, if they want to have a kid, they will.
One might argue that their efforts to conceive naturally have drawn this out. That they’ve suffered needlessly.
Kris Jenner might disagree. After all, their struggles make a reality TV storyline. That’s a win in Kris’ book.
