Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker

Reports confirm that Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have welcomed their first child together.

The media personality is said to have given birth to their baby boy, which is believed to have been named Rocky Thirteen.

While it is not the most traditional of names, there is a heartwarming meaning behind the choice of moniker.

Celebrities are known for naming their offspring unique and unconventional names, and in the case of the Kardashian sister and the Blink-182 drummer’s son, it’s no different.

However, in a GOAT Talk interview with Complex, Travis and his 17-year-old daughter, Alabama, mulled over baby names they believed to be the ‘Greatest of All Time’.

“I like Rocky Thirteen,” Travis revealed, to which Alabama replied, “That’s so bad… Even he knows it’s bad.”

The drummer agreed that the name was bad but explained his reasons for liking it.

“Rocky George played guitar for Suicidal Tendencies. And 13 is just the greatest number of all time. And Rocky, the greatest boxing movie of all time.”

More recently, during an appearance One Life One Chance podcast , he revealed that Kourtney was due to give birth on Halloween or within the first week of November.

When the host Toby Morse chimed in: “Rocky Thirteen Barker,” Travis confirmed: “Rocky Thirteen Barker!”

“That’s such a hard name man,” Toby continued. Travis joked: “He’s gonna come out of my wife’s vagina like doing front kicks and push-ups…”

Toby said: “That’s such a great name,” to which the Blink-182 drummer replied: “Thank you!”

Rocky enters a blended family as the couple are already parents to six children between them.

Kourtney shares Reign, 8, and Mason, 13, and Penelope, 11, with ex Scott Disick, while Barker is already a father to son Landon, 20, daughter Alabama, 17, and stepdaughter Atiana De La Hoya, 24, with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler..
