On January 18, Kourtney Kardashian posted a series of photos on Instagram featuring her and Travis at the Emmy Awards. The caption, "Rocky's parents," raised eyebrows as it appeared to disregard Kourtney's three children with ex Scott Disick (Mason, Penelope, and Reign) and Travis Barker's kids with ex-wife Shanna Moakler (Landon and Alabama).

The comments section quickly filled up with negative reactions, with some followers expressing concern over Kardashian seemingly forgetting about her other children.

One user questioned, "Did she forget about her other kids?" while another pointed out, "You have other kids too, like what?"

Critics urged Kourtney to be more thoughtful about her posts, especially considering the potential impact on her children who might see these comments.

The comment reads, "So Rocky is your only child??? Think before you post – I’m sure your kids see these.” 

Amid the criticism, some fans rushed to Kourtney's defense, highlighting that Rocky is the only child she and Travis share biologically.

The comment reads, “Rocky is the only child they have had together. So yes, they both are biological parents to only Rocky. The other kids are either only Kourtney’s or only Travis’s, not both. How hard is it to understand that? Jeez, so judgey for no reason!”

In the heartfelt post, Kourtney extended her thanks to her mother Kris Jenner, acknowledging the support during the challenging time.

Reflecting on the unexpected turn of events, she stated, "As someone who has had three really easy pregnancies in the past, I wasn’t prepared for the fear of rushing into urgent fetal surgery.

"Praise be to God. Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing," she added.

The post not only marked the introduction of baby Rocky Thirteen but also shed light on the resilience and gratitude amid the journey into parenthood for Kourtney and Travis.
