Alabama Barker praised her stepmom, Kourtney Kardashian, on her 44th birthday. “Happy birthday Kourt,” the 17-year-old wrote via her Instagram Story Tuesday. “You’re the best stepmom I could ask for, you are so caring and generous for others, you are such a family person and such a hard working mom.” She continued, “Even if you don’t feel good or had a hard day, you always put your family first. You have such a beautiful aura, I wouldn’t want another step mom.” Alabama accompanied the sweet message with a series of photos of the “Kardashians” star and dad Travis Barker.

Meanwhile, Kardashian shares sons Mason, 13, and Reign, 8, along with daughter Penelope, 10, with ex Scott Disick.
Kardashian and Travis blended their families in May 2022 when the two tied the knot in Italy.

Yet the former beauty pageant queen has gone through periods of estrangement with her children, who live full-time with their father. At one point, Alabama even asked fans to stop painting Moakler out to be “an amazing mom” because she “has never completely been in [her] life
