“Their wedding is set to be a huge event, and they’ve been planning for months – initially they were talking about May, as they wanted to do it sooner rather than later,” says a friend of the couple.
“But as she’s now struggling with IVF and all the uncertainty she’s been forced to put the wedding plans on hold because she just feels there’s too much going on.
“As fans will see on the show, the IVF journey is difficult, and it involves a lot of medication and doctor’s visits. Everything is so uncertain and she wants to put her full energy into having a baby right now.”
Kourtney and Travis revealed their plans to have a child together in the trailer for the family’s upcoming Hulu show (on Disney+ in the UK).
She said in a voiceover: “Travis and I want to have a baby.”
The couple were then shown visiting a doctor as they were instructed to “put a sample in this cup.”
The reality star appeared to want privacy during the appointment and announced she was taking her microphone off.
In a clip released earlier this month, Kourtney – who shares Penelope, Reign and Mason with ex Scott Disick – opened up about the effects of IVF on her body.

“Travis and I want to have a baby, and so my doctor took us down this road of doing IVF,” Kourtney said in a confessional during a new clip from The Kardashians.
“Like, it hasn’t been the most amazing experience,” she added.
She told momager Kris Jenner: “Every single person on social media is always like ‘Kourtney’s pregnant, Kourtney’s pregnant, Kourtney’s gained so much weight.’
“It’s so rude to comment on people when you have no idea what they’re actually going through. The medication they’re giving me, they put me into menopause. … Literally into menopause.”
“Based off of what, a drug?” Kris asked, to which Kourtney replied, “Yes.”
Now, the friend claims that having a baby is Kourtney’s number one focus.
“A tentative save the date has gone out saying it’ll now be closer to the end of summer,” says the friend.
“Maybe as late as September or October depending on IVF cycles. Wedding planning is still happening – designs, ideas, menu tasting, dresses – but it’s just a matter of dates. Kourtney wants her big wedding, she wants to stand up there with Travis and become man and wife more than anything, but it’s just a tough position to be in right now.”
Kourtney’s rep has been approached for comment.
