Kourtney Kardashian, the renowned reality star, has made waves with her recent driver's license update. She changed her name to Kourtney Kardashian Barker, reflecting her marriage to Travis Barker. This move has sparked intrigue and speculation among fans, who wonder if it's a playful nod towards her sister Kim's recent driver's license episode. Regardless, Kourtney's name change has captured the attention of her loyal followers.
Kourtney Kardashian has made a significant change by altering her name on her driver's license, prompting speculation about her intentions towards her sister Kim. The reality star's announcement coincided with Kim's appearance on an episode of The Kardashians, where she obtained a new driver's license photo.
Kourtney, who married Travis Barker in May 2022, proudly shared her updated black-and-white license photo on Instagram, now featuring her name as Kourtney Kardashian Barker. Alongside the snapshot, Kourtney, 44, playfully wrote, "say my name." In addition, she took to her Instagram Stories to explain why she replaced her middle name, Mary, with her maiden name. Sharing a screenshot from The Knot, a wedding website, Kourtney clarified the tradition of brides adopting their husband's last name and keeping their maiden name as their middle name. She addressed the curiosity surrounding her decision with the words, "in case you didn't know..."
Interestingly, Kourtney revealed her new driver's license photo on the same day that viewers witnessed Kim obtaining her own updated license photo on The Kardashians. In the episode, Kim visited the DMV before her 42nd birthday, accompanied by hairstylist Chris Appleton and makeup artist Ariel Tejada. Notably, Kim, who previously changed her name to Kim Kardashian West during her marriage to Kanye West, contemplated adding "West" to her new ID but ultimately decided against it, firmly declaring, "No, I'm Kim Kardashian."
Fans quickly noticed the timing of Kourtney's post, leading to speculation in the comments section. Some suggested that it was not a mere coincidence, with one user exclaiming, "the timing of this post has me screaming." Another commenter noted, "Kourtney is totally mocking Kim's episode from today," while someone else playfully remarked, "Lol after Kim's license episode... It's not a comp, Kourtney." The lighthearted banter among fans further added to the intrigue surrounding this name-changing saga.
