Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker surprised reality star Kourtney Kardashian with a massive, oval-cut diamond engagement ring on Sunday. The proposal took place within a heart of red roses at the beachfront Rosewood Miramar Hotel in Montecito, CA.
Based on photos of the ring that began flooding Instagram on Monday, the oval diamond could be as large as 15 carats with a value upwards of $1 million. The ring design is a simple platinum solitaire with a pavé diamond band.
Kardashian shared two proposal pics with her 147 million Instagram followers. Her simple caption read, “forever.”
Sister Kim Kardashian later posted a video to Instagram of her sister and Barker enjoying a celebratory dinner with their families. During the clip, Kim zooms in on the oval diamond on her sister’s finger. Using a fun mashup of the new engaged couple’s names, she wrote, “KRAVIS FOREVER.”
Also on Monday, Atiana De La Hoya, the daughter of Barker’s ex, Shanna Moakler, posted a clear shot of Kourney’s ring to her Instagram Story.
An eyewitness to the proposal told E! News, “It looked very romantic. I could see Kourtney smiling from ear to ear and put her hand over her mouth looking surprised. The family cheered for them and went back into the hotel.”
It’s also being reported that the romantic moment was filmed for the Kardashian’s upcoming, still-untitled Hulu series.
Celebrity jewelers are generally placing the weight of the diamond in the range of 8 to 15 carats and the value in the range of $350,000 to $1 million, depending on the actual size and quality of the diamond.
Barker, 45, and Kardashian, 42, went public with their relationship in January of 2021. Throughout this year, they’ve been hinting on social media that their relationship was evolving into a lifelong commitment.
This will be the first marriage for Kardashian, although the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has three children with former boyfriend and fellow TV personality Scott Disick. The upcoming nuptials will be the third for Barker, who was formerly married Melissa Kennedy (2001 to 2002) and Moakler and (2004 to 2008). He shares two children with the latter.
