After nearly a year of dating, the Blink-182 drummer, 45, and the reality star, 42, ficou noivo em outubro. 17 at the beachfront Rosewood Miramar resort in Montecito, Calif. — and a family source tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, nas bancas sexta-feira, that it was a long time coming.
“The question was never E se they would get engaged, it was more like quando,” diz a fonte. “Travis simplesmente adora Kourtney. Ele a trata como uma princesa e é um cara legal.”
At sunset Barker led Kardashian down to a heart-shaped red rose arrangement na praia, where he popped the question with an oval-shaped diamond ring he designed with celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.
“Travis was nervous, but Kourtney didn’t hesitate for a second before she said yes,” diz a fonte. Adds an onlooker: “Kourtney did not stop smiling.”
While the source says the proposal was a “complete surprise” para Kardashian, Barker had clued her family in on his plans.
“Everyone was great at keeping it secret,” diz a fonte, who adds that the celebration was filmed for the Kardashians’ upcoming Hulu show. “Kourtney’s family loves Travis.”
After the proposal, Kardashian’s mom, Kris Jenner, e irmãs Kim, Khloé, Kendall e Kylie joined them at the hotel for a dinner, which was also attended by Barker’s daughter Alabama, 15, filho Landon, 18, e enteada Atiana De La Hoya, 22 (whom he shares with ex Shanna Moakler).
“Foi uma linda festa,” diz a fonte. “Everyone is very happy for them.”
Longtime friends, Kardashian and Barker first became romantic a year ago. Since going public in February, they’ve documented their travels around the world on social media as Kardashian helped Barker overcome his fear of flying after he survived a deadly 2008 plane crash.
“Travis gives Kourtney a lot of credit,” diz a fonte. “Kourtney feels this is such a special relationship. She feels appreciated.”
Este será o primeiro casamento para Kardashian, quem tem três filhos - Mason, 11, Penélope, 9, e reinar, 6 - com ex Scott Disick e nunca esteve envolvido anteriormente. Será o terceiro para Barker, que foi casado com Melissa Kennedy de 2001 para 2002 e Moakler de 2004 para 2008.
As she looks to the future, Kardashian “mal posso esperar para casar com Travis,” diz a fonte. “Ela também adoraria ter um filho com ele.”
Ainda, her kids will remain “her priority,” a fonte adiciona. “They are the most special to her.”
