Speaking with E! News at the BeautyCon event in Los Angeles earlier this week, Alabama expressed her excitement over welcoming a new member to the Barker-Kardashian family.

"I just think having another family member is always awesome," she said, adding: "Getting to know a new person, it's gonna be so fun and so exciting!"

Her mom Shanna previously expressed her approval of her ex-husband's baby news, shortly after Kourtney announced she was expecting while at a Blink-182 concert in June.

Despite the ongoing support from their family, friends, kids, and even exes, Kourtney's pregnancy has not all been smooth sailing. Earlier this month, Travis had to unexpectedly postpone his scheduled Blink-182 concerts, after Kourtney was rushed to the hospital over a medical emergency concerning their baby boy.

Kourtney later opened up about the health scare with an emotional statement on Instagram, writing: "I will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby's life. I am eternally grateful to my husband who rushed to my side from tour to be with me in the hospital and take care of me afterwards, my rock. And to my mom [Kris Jenner], thank you for holding my hand through this."

She then explained: "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," adding: "I don't think anyone who hasn't been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear.
