Travis Barker talks about girlfriend Kourtney

It’s not as though they needed to confirm anything for the rest of us, but Travis Barker took me by surprise today when he spoke of Kourt Kardashian on the Drew Barrymore show.

Though he didn’t name her specifically, it was obvious who he meant when he said dating a mom is great because as a dad he doesn’t have to explain why his kids come first.

‘Up until now I would date girls that didn’t have kids and I find it kind of hard because I think they would have trouble understanding, like, “Well, why don’t you want to go to dinner every night with me?” or “Why don’t you want to see me every night?”‘ Barker explained.

‘Now I am spending time with a woman who is a great mom, who is a great friend, and you don’t have to worry about any of those things,’ he continued.

‘It just comes naturally, it’s like a maturity thing.’

Travis shares daughter Alabama, 15, and son Landon, 17, with ex-wife Shanna Moakler, while Kourtney is mom to daughter Penelope, eight, and sons Mason, 11, and Reign, six, with ex partner Scott Disick.

Barker also talked about the idea of absence making the heart grow fonder with Drew on Wednesday.

‘I also really like missing someone and cherishing the time I spend with them instead of every day being with them,’ he shared. ‘Especially in the beginning of the relationship, I think missing someone is so important.’  I do love that.
