Since COVID-19 is very much a thing still, Travis and Kourtney keep their Valentine’s Day celebrations low-key and likely spend the evening together cuddled up by a romantic outdoor fireplace, which Kourtney posts to her Instagram Stories.

Kourtney and Travis go out for dinner in Los Angeles, and they pack on the cutest PDA. Lucky for us, an E! News source dishes all the adorable details of their outing.

“They seemed completely taken with one another as if they were the only two people in the world,” the source says. “They seem very connected, very close. Travis took her hand and they giggled as they started having a little thumb war with one another. It was playful and sweet. They were talking constantly and very engaged in one another. It seems like such a natural fit, being that they have been friends for so long. There was no awkwardness.”

Yep, too cute to not ship.

Kourt reveals that someone in her life went through the trouble of cropping her bikini-clad bod into a lock screen photo. And though it’s p believable that Kourt would have her own bod as her lock screen (shoot, I def would if my abs looked that good), she makes a point to note “P.S. This lock screen does not belong to me.”

Podcast account @NotSkinnyButNotFat is the first to make the Travis connection here, and theorizes that it’s actually his lock screen (which checks out, TBH):

Travis is very smitten with Kourtney and has been for a while.”

Yeah, and about those poolside Palm Springs pictures (try saying that five times fast)? “They’re in Palm Springs together. They’ve been dating for about a month or two,” a separate source tells People. “They’ve been friends for a long time but it’s turned romantic.”

Travis confesses that he definitely had a crush on Kourtney’s younger sister, Kim Kardashian, back in 2006. Despite dating Kim’s employer—hotel heiress Paris Hilton—Travis says he couldn’t keep his eyes off of her (which is kinda awk now, LOL).

“How could you not stare at Kim? Mind you, I enjoyed hanging out with Paris, but I love curvy girls,” he tells Us Weekly at the time. “Kim was eye candy. I was no way disrespectful to Paris, but I couldn’t keep my eyes off Kim!”

“I had a crush on her and we were flirtatious but nothing ever happened,” Travis adds. “I don’t know! She was so kind and polite, I just felt like being a perfect gentleman around her. It was a trip!”

And not to alarm you or anything, but Travis is pretty much the reason why Keeping up With the Kardashians is a thing. In 2005, Travis’ own reality show, Meet the Barkers was on television, which is why Kim hit him up for advice.

“Kim was like, ‘I really want to do this reality show. We’re supposed to do it with Ryan Seacrest. I just think my family’s interesting,’” Travis recalls. “I gave her the best advice I could but I still remember the conversation like yesterday: ‘I think my family is interesting and it could be something.’ Well, you were absolutely right!” Travis and Kim remain close throughout the aughts, and he becomes super close to the rest of the fam since they all live in Calabasas, California. And the rest, as they say, is history.

That’s all we have for Travis and Kourtney’s timeline, but be sure to check back here for additional Instagram Stories and cute updates about their ‘ship!
