Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have announced their engagement after less than a year of dating.

Now that the eldest Kardashian sister is set to walk down the aisle for the very first time, we’ve decided to take a trip down memory lane and look back at all of the Kardashian engagements over the years.

Kourtney Kardashian

Travis Barker (2021 - present)

Wedding bells are ringing currently after Kourtney and Travis just got engaged.

Confirming the good news to her 146m followers on Instagram, Kourtney posted a photo of the proposal with the caption “forever.”

In the photo, Kourtney and Travis can be seen embracing each other on a beach in Montecito, California that was filled with red roses for the occasion.

The Kardashian clan also seem delighted for the happy couple after her sister Kim posted a video of Kourtney and Travis kissing after the proposal and shows a close up of Kourtney’s diamond engagement ring, with the caption “KRAVIS FOREVER.”

After being friends with each other for years, the newly engaged couple first confirmed their relationship on Instagram just after Valentine’s Day this year.

Outcome: Very engaged

Khloe Kardashian

Tristan Thompson (rumoured 2020/21)

Khloe Kardashian sparked engagement rumours with her on-and-off boyfriend Tristan Thompson after she posted a photo on Instagram back in February this year sporting a huge diamond rock on her wedding finger.

The third Kardashian first started dating Tristan in 2016, and the pair share three-year-old daughter True together.

But after apparently cheating during Khloe’s pregnancy with her younger sister Kylie’s best friend Jordyn Woods, the couple split in 2019 as a result.

Though rumours of a reunion emerged after they subsequently began quarantining together during the Covid pandemic and the ring once more was spotted on Khloe’s finger in her posts.

However in June 2021, reports emerged that the couple has split once again.

More recently Khloe and Tristan were spotted together at Kourtney and Travis’ engagement so they appear to remain friends.

Outcome: ???

Lamar Odom (2009-2016)

In a whirlwind romance, Khloe and basketball player Lamar Odom got married exactly one month since after they first met in September 2009.

Four years later, Khloe filed for divorce from Lamar after months of separation and both signed the papers in July 2015.

Just two months later, Lamar was hospitalised and put into a coma after being found unconscious in a brothel in Las Vegas. In response to this, Khloe withdrew her divorce petition - which was yet to be finalised - in order to be able to make medical decisions for him.

Eventually, Khloe and Lamar’s divorce was finalised in December 2016, when Lamar had recovered.

Outcome: Divorce

Kim Kardashian

Damon Thomas (2001-03)

Kim Kardashian’s first marriage happened in 2000 when she was 19 years old after she eloped with music producer Damon Thomas who was 10 years older than her at age 29.

Three years down the line, and Thomas filed for divorce in 2003.

The 40-year-old has alleged that Damon was physically and emotionally abusive during their marriage - something which Damon has denied.

In a clip from Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim admits to Khloe, Kendall and Scott that she married Damon “while on ecstasy.”

Outcome: Divorce

Kanye West (2013-2021)

One of the biggest celebrity couple were first good friends for years before they started dating in 2012 while Kim was still legally married to Kris Humphries.

After getting her divorce from her second marriage finalised in June 2013, the second eldest Kardashian sister got engaged to the rapper just two months later in October 2013.

In May the following year, Kim and Kanye got married in Florence, Italy.

But nearly eight years down the line, Kim filed for divorce in February 2021 citing “irreconcilable differences” and agreed to having joint custody of their four children, North (8), Saint (5), Chicago (3) and Psalm (2).

Though the pair appear to be amicable after Kim featured in Kanye’s Donda show wearing a wedding dress, which fuelled rumours that the A-list couple were getting back together.

Outcome: Divorce

Kris Humphries (2011)

Kim began dating NBA player Kris Humphries in October 2010, and shortly became engaged in May 2011.

Three months later, after the short engagement the pair married in ceremony in Montecito, California.

The engagement and lead-up to the wedding was covered in a two-part TV show and Kim even came out with her own wedding fragrance - prompting The Washington Post to describe the coverage as a blinding “media blitz.”

Soon their marriage would be making headlines again after Kim filed for divorce from Kris after just 72 days of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.

Their divorce was finalised in June 2013.

In 2021, Kim shared how she tried to get in contact with Humphries to apologise for everything that happened but she didn’t get a response.

Outcome: Divorce

Blacc Chyna (2016)

Although the only Kardashian son remains out of the spotlight more than his sisters, Rob made headlines while he was dating and engaged to Blacc Chyna.

The pair started dating in 2016 and within three months were engaged in the April.

One month later, the couple announced they were expecting their first child together and their daughter Dream Renee Kardashian was born in November 2016.

In December 2016, via their social media accounts, the pair announced they split. Although they brief reconciled, Rob and Blacc Chyna eventually ended their relationship for good in February 2017.

Though things didn’t end amicably after Rob was banned from Instagram for posting revenge porn of Chyna in July of that year, which resulted in Chyn obtaining a temporary restraining order against Rob, Cosmopolitan reported.

Outcome: Split up

Kris Jenner


Robert Kardashian (1978-1991)

Kris’ first marriage was to attorney Robert Kardashian in 1978, who was widely known for being part of O.J Simpson’s legal defence team during his murder trial where he was accused of killing his wife Nicole Simpson.

The couple share two daughters together - model Kendall Jenner born in 1995, and Kylie born in 1997. They starred, along with the rest of the Kris’ children, in their family reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians which aired from 2007-2021.

Although Kourtney and Scott never made it down the aisle, the former couple were in a relationship for 10 years.

In 2005, the pair met at a house party and from then on we saw their relationship journey over the years on KUWTK.

They share three children together, Mason (11), Penelope (9) and Reign (6) and had an on-off relationship over the years in part due to Scott’s alcohol and drug use problems.

In 2011, Scott did plan on proposing to Kourtney, as revealed in the season one finale of spin-off show Kourtney and Kim Take New York, after he purchased an engagement ring.

However it wasn’t to be since when Scott asked Kourtney her views on marriage she said she didn’t want things to change and that they were doing well so Scott decided not to propose in the end.

Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble (2014- present)

Kris Jenner has been dating business executive and talent manager Corey Gamble since 2014 after reportedly meeting at fashion designer Riccardo Tisci’s 40th birthday in Ibiza.

They later made their Met Gala debut in 2016 which is a pretty significant milestone for any showbiz couple.

Corey has also featured on KUWTK so appears to fit right in with the Kardashian family.

After seven years together, could they follow in Kourtney and Travis’ footsteps?

Outcome: Together

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott (2017-present)

Makeup mogul Kylie Jenner has been in a relationship with rapper Travis Scott since 2017 after they were first spotted at Coachella together.
