A year before "The Kardashians" episode was filmed, Kourtney opened up about merging households with Travis on Amanda Hirsch's "Not Skinny But Not Fat" podcast. She appeared on the show in October 2022, a few months after saying her vows to the Blink-182 drummer.

Kourtney revealed the couple, nicknamed Kravis, were not in a rush to blend their families. Instead, they prioritized introducing both sides to each other with plenty of quality family time. In her words:

"We're in the place where we're figuring out how to blend our households and our kids and what life looks like now. For the most part, we're getting those things in place. We do family dinner every Sunday night with all the kids at his house."

Kourtney continued, "We want our kids to feel really comfortable. They have both lived in their homes their whole lives for the most part and just, they each have their rooms. We are a block away."
