Celebrities are notorious for getting a little bit weird with their baby names. We’ve got Elon Musk and Grimes throwing numbers and symbols into the mix, while Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin famously named their first baby after a fruit. While the Kardashians have picked baby names that aren’t that far out there, they’re still far from traditional, with selections like Psalm, Stormi, Reign, North, Saint, Dream, and True.

After years of trying, Kourtney Kardashian and husband Travis Barker are now expecting the newest Kardashian crew member — and after months of dropping hints and sharing favorites, Barker has revealed the planned name for their baby boy on the way.

The Blink-182 drummer appeared on the One Life One Chance podcast this week and spilled all the info fans have been waiting for about his expectant son.

The host, Toby Morse, and the 44-year-old musician were discussing a benefit show when Travis subtly dropped the news.

“There was a benefit in Hawaii that we were gonna do, but it’s the week that Rocky’s due,” he said.

“Rocky Thirteen Barker?” Toby pressed.

“Rocky Thirteen Barker,” Barker confirmed enthusiastically.

“That's such a hard name man,” Morse responded.

“He’s gonna come out of my wife’s vagina, like, doing front kicks and push-ups,” Barker said.

No pressure to become a punk rocker or a boxer, Rocky.

Barker also let fly that the baby’s due date is like... today.

“It’s either Halloween or, like, the first week of November,” he revealed.

Let the Barker-Kardashian baby watch begin!

In July, in a video interview for Complex, Barker dropped that he thinks that Rocky Thirteen is the greatest baby name that exists, so it’s not exactly a surprise that that’s where the couple landed.

He chatted with his 16-year-old daughter Alabama Barker about their GOAT (that’s greatest of all time) baby names, and he didn’t hold back.

“I like Rocky Thirteen. That’s just the name that’s been going through my head lately,” he confessed enthusiastically.

What’s his thought process?

“Rocky George played guitar for Suicidal Tendencies and 13 is just the greatest number of all time,” he explained. “And Rocky is the greatest boxing movie of all time.”

His daughter’s response was... strong.

“That’s so bad!” she said. “Even he knows it’s bad.”

“It is, it is bad,” Barker admitted, though that doesn’t seem to faze him.

“So you’re going to name your kid Rocky Thirteen?” Alabama asked

“Possibly,” he said.

“Let’s see how this goes when he’s at school,” she said.

Alabama also threw out her three favorite names.

“Audemars. Milan. F*cking Patek,” she said.

So far, Travis and Kourtney’s blended family already has some stand-out names. Besides Alabama, Barker is father to stepdaughter Atiana, 24, and Landon, 19. Kourtney shares sons Mason, 12, and Reign, 7, as well as daughter Penelope, 10, with ex Scott Disick.

The couple began trying for a baby before their marriage in the spring of 2022 and underwent IVF treatments while trying to conceive. They announced their pregnancy publicly in June, when Kourtney held up a sign that read, “Travis I’m Pregnant,” at a Blink-182 concert.

“Overwhelmed with gratitude and joy for God’s blessing and plan,” she captioned the carousel of pictures from the night.

“God is great,” Barker commented.

Recently, Kourtney posted a picture of her pregnant belly and Travis commented, “I already know his name.😉.”

Congrats to the couple. Can’t wait to meet Rocky Thirteen.
