Kardashian Barker first announced her pregnancy news in June by holding up a handwritten sign at her husband's Blink-182 concert.

Weeks before welcoming their baby boy, Kardashian Barker addressed a "medical emergency" she underwent after having an urgent fetal surgery. Sharing a photo on Instagram of her hand intertwined with her husband's, the now mom-of-four opened up about her scary situation.

"I will be forever grateful to my incredible doctors for saving our baby’s life," she began her caption. "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, thank you for holding my hand through this."

"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. I don’t think anyone who hasn’t been through a similar situation can begin to understand that feeling of fear," Kardashian Barker continued. "I have a whole new understanding and respect for the mamas who have had to fight for their babies while pregnant."

She concluded, "Praise be to God. Walking out of the hospital with my baby boy in my tummy and safe was the truest blessing. 🙏🏼🤍."
