Kourtney Kardashian’s Instagram profile shows a change in the actress’s name. The last name Barker can now be seen on her Instagram page. In addition, sources reported that Kourtney recently tied the knot with Travis Barker in Italy. Along with the professional marriage, the couple also legally confirmed it. That’s why we can now easily say that Kardashian is officially a “Barker”.
The third wedding ceremony was indeed a grand affair and made Kourtney very proud to have Travis Barker as her husband. It is even more apparent from her recent appearance by adding her husband’s last name to her name. Of course, the Kardashian superstar will remain that way for the world all her life. But after the wedding ceremony on May 23, 2022, Kourtney added Barker to her last name through the legal process. So now she is permanently a Barker.
Kourtney Kardashian changes last name to Barker
Today, social media is the most powerful medium to get out anything you want to share with the public. Likewise, Kourtney also used this mode to show her immense love for her husband Travis and his family.
According to a source, the reality show star believed that changing the last name would strengthen the relationship with Travis’ family. In addition, it will give new meaning to her relationship.
Though I’m a Kardashian, Kourtney always enjoyed a special place several times; this time she was firm in her decision. But her family was initially unwilling to accept this. They stated that Kourtney’s family has prestige, which is why keeping Kardashian by the last name showed her close ties and ties.
In addition, one of their suggestions was to keep both surnames together. That will make more sense and let her show her bond with both families. Finally, Kourtney liked this idea and immediately changed her name on the Instagram handle. The last name on the profile page is now Kourtney Kardashian Barker.
Legal alternation in the surname
Changing the surname after marriage is not mandatory. However, if a girl consciously wants to accept the laws and the title of the husband, she can add her husband’s last name. Reportedly, Kardashian also decided to legally change her last name after getting the marriage license. She is honored to take this step, as Kourtney feels it is her duty to show her respect for her husband.
Kardashian and Barker’s wedding rituals were indeed a lengthy process. Travis, 46, reportedly tied the knot with 43-year-old Kourtney on May 22 in Portofino, Italy. It was a grand celebration with all family members present. Gabbana and Dolce was everyone’s celebrated brand there. But the star-studded feature didn’t have the graceful presence of some of the family members like Corey Gamble, Rob Kardashian, Kanye West, Scott Disick, and others. In addition, Kim’s controversial boyfriend, Pete Davidson, was also not missing from the wedding because of his Saturday Night Live shoot.
Beauty of the formal wedding
Before the formal family wedding in Italy, the couple had already married each other in Las Vegas. However, according to reports, it was just a practice wedding with not-so-great ones. But both the bride and groom wanted a special day dedicated to the most important day of their lives. That is why they have made all the preparations for a beautiful wedding ceremony. The Las Vegas wedding took place in Italy just two months before D-Day.
Moreover, the couple also got the marriage license just a week before this very fat wedding affair. In Santa Barbara, the couple completed the legal proceedings of a marriage. In addition, Kardashian requested the legal change of her last name to Santa Barbara only after the legal marriage.
The confirmation just came and the actress is more than happy to add “Barker” to her last name on social media. It is indeed a big step for a superstar like Kourtney, who is known only as Kardashian. Even her reality show is also titled The Kardashians. However, the couple also made it clear that it was Kourtney’s personal decision and that no one was pushing it on her. Her relatives opposed this decision.
So legally, this major name change easily reflects her trust in her husband and this marriage. Fans of both Kourtney and Travis are thrilled to see this change on Instagram. Many of them are already flooding Kourtney’s page with lots of congratulations and best wishes for a happy married life. We just hope the couple stays like this forever and gets all the blessings.
