They are saying “I do” for the third time this weekend in Portofino, Italy, in front of a close circle of family and friends. Here, DailyMail.com takes a look at the three weddings, wild PDAs, IVF struggles, and the stormy romance of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Parker…
Kardashian Travis’s first crush on Kim
After being a family friend for years, Travis Parker first showed his interest in the KarJenner clan when he admitted that he was first attracted to Kim Kardashian – not Kourtney – when she was an assistant at Paris Hilton around 2006.
‘How can you not stare at Kim?’ Mind you, I enjoyed hanging out with Paris, but I love curvy girls,” Travis admitted in 2015. Kim was eye candy. I had no respect for Paris in any way, but I couldn’t take my eyes off Kim! “
Travis went on to say that he spent time with Kim in the Calabasas neighborhood, and while he liked her, he said, “Nothing ever happened.”

Get to know the family
Travis then appeared multiple times on Keeping Up With The Kardashians while still married to ex-wife Shanna Mockler, cementing his status as a true Kardashian family friend.
His daughter Alabama revealed in October 2017 that she was in an affair with the Kardashian family, along with her father, although she did not specifically mention Kourtney.
“Actually, last night I had dinner with all of them and they were really sweet,” she said at the time. Travis Alabama and son Landon are engaged to ex-Mocler, to whom he was married from 2004 to 2008.

Kourtney and Travis first sparked romance rumors when they were spotted on what appeared to be a date together in 2018 in Los Angeles.
To spend their evenings out, the duo attended an evening service at the famous Celebrity Hillsong Church and later went out to a vegan dinner at Crossroads where they dined with Courtney Pal Larsa Pippen.
At that time, Kourtney broke up with French model Younes Bendjima just a few months ago.

From friends to lovers
Their relationship was confirmed in January 2021 after they converged during the pandemic, with Kourtney recently revealing that she took the first step while the pair were enjoying a friendly movie night together.
I’ve definitely always been drawn to Travis. “I think it was the right time in my life,” she said on the show this year, adding, “We’d text and put it there, like a flirtatious conversation.”
After Travis failed to make a move and went to put together a second movie to watch, Kourtney took action: “I was like, ‘I don’t have time for this movie marathon,’ so I made the first move.”

PDA power couple
‘Kravis’ became Instagram official for Valentine’s Day in February 2021 as Kourtney posted a photo of the couple holding hands, but that was just the start of the wild PDAs that followed. By April, Travis posted a blurry shot of them, while later revealing their signature move on Courtney on either side of Blink 182 drummer in the Utah desert.
Their PDAs hit a fever pitch in August last year, when Scott Disick reached out to ex-husband Younes Bendjima on Instagram after spotting Kourtney on either side of Travis on a gondola. I apologize later.
They debuted on the red carpet at the VMAs in September of last year, and their tongue-kissing show for the cameras set the tone for many PDA-heavy events including this year’s Met Gala.

While their marital romance has seen many ups and downs, Kourtney revealed that they also experienced heartbreak as she struggled to have a child with Travis.
On an episode of The Kardashian Family, Kourt admitted that their doctor had taken them “this route to do IVF,” saying “it wasn’t the most amazing experience.”
The reality star is Umm Mason, 12; Penelope, nine; Wren, seven – with ex-partner Scott Disick, whom she dated from 2005 until 2015.
Travis popped the question in October to Kourtney, taking her away to a beach in Montecito, California, where the special moment for Kardashians Hollow reality show was captured.
Later, it was revealed that there was a drama where Kris Jenner made the call not to include Kourtney’s children in the happy moment – which became upset with her daughter Penelope.
“I woke up all night thinking it was a dream,” Kourtney gushed on Instagram at the time.
Kourtney wrote on Instagram about her suggestion from Travis: ‘I woke up all night thinking it was a dream.’
Not content with just one party, Kravis kicked things off with a drunken wedding in Las Vegas in April of this year after partying at the Grammy Awards. But the wedding was voided as it was revealed that the beloved couple did not have the correct papers.
In the lead-up to their big wedding in Italy, Kravis legally tied the knot in Santa Barbara in May with her grandmother Mary Jo “MJ” Campbell, as well as Travis’ father Randy Parker. The pair drove off in a low-key styled “Just Married” car.
However, the couple really stopped short of their big party in Portofino, renting out an entire castle for their families and friends. The couple chose the Castello Brown Historic House Museum located on a hill above the Port of Portofino for the grand official celebration.
