Kourtney Kardashian recently opened up about the harrowing health scare that threatened her pregnancy with son Rocky. In a candid revelation on “The Kardashians,” the 45-year-old reality star shared details of the rare condition that led to her emergency fetal surgery last September.

“We had a terrifying scare,” Kardashian confessed, her voice tinged with residual worry. The culprit? An unusual accumulation of fluid in Rocky’s developing lungs. “It’s super rare — the condition that he had — but it’s also super rare and lucky that we caught it,” she added, gratitude evident in her tone.

Despite the initial success of the surgery, Kardashian’s relief was short-lived. The fluid began to return, plunging the expectant mother into a fresh wave of anxiety. It was then that an unexpected source offered a glimmer of hope: a documentary about the power of positive thinking.

Inspired, Kardashian embarked on a daily ritual of talking to her unborn child and offering heartfelt prayers. Whether through medical intervention, maternal determination, or perhaps a touch of cosmic intervention, the fluid issue resolved completely.

Meanwhile, Travis Barker, Kardashian’s husband and Rocky’s father, wrestled with his own concerns. “I don’t want him to come out early,” Barker was overheard saying as the couple prepared for the birth. “I want to make sure his lungs are perfect — everything’s perfect.”


Rocky Thirteen Barker made his grand entrance on November 1st, healthy and whole. Now, ensconced in what she calls her “blissful baby bubble,” Kardashian reflects on the tumultuous journey with a mixture of relief and joy. “It’s everything I’ve ever dreamed of,” she shared, her words carrying the weight of hard-won happiness.

In the end, the Kardashian-Barker family’s story serves as a poignant reminder that even amid celebrity and privilege, the path to parenthood can be fraught with very human fears and triumphs.
