Who needs a metronome when you have your newborn baby’s heartbeat? That appears to be Travis Barker‘s line of thinking based on a new video uploaded to TikTok on Thursday (Nov. 9).
“Practicing to my babies heartbeat 🥁,” the blink-182 drummer captioned the post — which featured him beating a drum pad with a rapid rhythm based on the sound of his newborn’s heartbeat. Barker sits in what looks to be a hospital room or doctor’s office, with medical equipment all around him in the clip, driving home the recent arrival of his latest bundle of joy.
On Nov. 4, sources confirmed to People that Kourtney Kardashian had given birth to her first child with husband Barker. A baby boy, the couple’s first child joins Kardashian’s three elder children from a years-long relationship with reality TV personality Scott Disick: son Mason, 13, daughter Penelope, 11, and son Reign, 8. Barker has two older children from a previous marriage to model Shanna Moakler: son Landon, 19, and daughter Alabama, 17, as well as stepdaughter Atiana.
In the days leading up to their baby boy’s arrival, Barker visited the One Life One Chance podcast to reveal that he and Kardashian had chosen to name him Rocky Thirteen Barker. “I was like, ‘He’s going to come out of my wife’s vagina doing front kicks and push-ups,’” Barker quipped, also confirming that his wife was due on Halloween or “the first week of November.”
That projected due date happened to include two very special milestones for Barker. In addition to the birth of his baby boy, the 47-year-old rocker collected a bevy of new Billboard chart achievements. On the Billboard 200 chart dated Nov. 4, Blink-182’s One More Time bowed at the summit with 125,000 equivalent album units.
With that lofty debut, the pop-punk icons now have a Billboard 200-topping album for each decade of the 2000s so far: 2002’s Take Off Your Pants, 2016’s California and this year’s One More Time. The new set also features two back-to-back Alternative Airplay No. 1 hits in “Edging” and its title track, cementing the One More Time era as something of a third career wind for the beloved rockers.
