Kourtney Kardashian is opening up about her decision to keep the family in the dark during the revelation of her pregnancy.
Amid the celebration of her exciting reveal and very private birth, a shadow loomed as the reality TV star’s family seemed noticeably absent. While this exclusion left fans wondering, the recent season finale of “The Kardashians” on Hulu shed light on the behind-the-scenes drama.
Kourtney Kardashian Spills Why Her Family Missed Out On The Big Baby News
On a bus ride to one of her husband Travis Barker‘s concerts in San Diego, the show’s producers questioned Khloé Kardashian and Kris Jenner about their thoughts on the new mom’s unique pregnancy announcement.
Jenner’s lukewarm response hinted at a more profound discomfort, leading to Kourtney’s revelation about why she deliberately left her family out of the publicized moment.
The POOSH founder defended her choice in a confessional, stating, “I just truly didn’t think to invite them to the LA concert.” Her rationale? That her family “wouldn’t care to come.”
Most importantly, for her, the announcement was a personal celebration between her and Barker, not a family affair. Sticking by her decision, the TV personality asserted:
“It just truly was our way to tell the world, and it was about me and Travis, not about anything else. This is why I don’t invite you guys to stuff because it’s not about you.”
As the family dynamics played out on screen, emotions ran high. Khloé revealed their mom’s displeasure at discovering the news through the media, emphasizing how Kourtney “forgot” to inform them of her plans.
Jenner, expressing disappointment, remarked, “She forgot she had a family. That’s what pregnancy brain does. It’s wild how that happens.” With the drama unfolding, it became evident that the 44-year-old’s desire for privacy played a pivotal role in her decision-making.
Kourtney’s childbirth at the exclusive Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles was shrouded in mystery. In November, the Kardashian-Barker power couple welcomed their baby boy, Rocky, and rather than use her name to check in, the actress chose to go with an undisclosed alias.
Even a thorough check could not reveal any occupants under their famous identities. Notably, the hospital, a favored choice for celebrities, has witnessed numerous Kardashian births, making it a familiar backdrop for the prominent family.
The “One Life to Live” star chose the deluxe suites for all three of her previous births. However, the exact suite where Kourtney and her husband embarked on their parenting journey remained unknown.
Kim Kardashian also embraced the luxurious setting, welcoming North West and son Saint in the same wing. The trend continued with other family members like Blac Chyna, Rob Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner.
According to insiders, the deluxe suites offer an experience akin to a five-star hotel room, complete with a patient room, an adjacent sitting room, and luxurious en-suite amenities.
They even have access to salon services, including haircuts, manicures, and pedicures. Some also come with the added perk of food and amenities, replicating the experience of a 5-star restaurant.
Kourtney Takes A Stand Against Family’s Lack Of Boundaries
Amidst Tristan Thompson’s apologies for his repeated infidelity with her sister Khloé, Kourtney Kardashian emphasized the importance of setting clear boundaries and holding individuals accountable.
The media personality expressed concern about her family’s tendency to overlook the missteps of the men in their lives without establishing clear guidelines for acceptable behavior.
In a confessional, the 2005 “Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive” participant emphasized her desire to shield her four children, particularly her daughter Penelope, from the repercussions of the family’s lack of boundaries.
Not mincing her words, she stated, “I’m not here to hold a grudge; I think that was the point in having the conversation. I do believe that people can grow. It was interesting to me, the work that he’s doing and the path that he’s on because when your words don’t match your actions, it’s concerning.”
The “Khloé & Lamar” guest star also highlighted the importance of aligning words with actions. “Talk is cheap. In our family, everyone can continue to normalize the behaviors of some of the men in our lives, and I don’t want to show my daughter that that’s okay. I think having forgiveness and giving grace. I think is right, but also having really clear boundaries, I think is really important,” she explained.
