Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker have captivated fans everywhere with their whirlwind romance.

After publicly denying dating rumors, the reality TV star and the Blink-182 drummer made things official this year, sharing candid photos of vacations together, intense PDA and tattooed expressions of love on Instagram, their red carpet debut at the MTV VMAs in September, and most recently, becoming engaged.

And while we wait for the two to say "I Do," the PDA keeps coming.

On Sunday, Kardashian praised Barker on his 46th birthday with a mash note along with photos on Instagram of the two looking head over heels. In her caption, Kardashian wrote she loved Barker "more than anything," calling her shirtless beau "my favorite everything."

"Happy birthday to you my baby!" she added.

Barker replied to her in the comments writing: "You’re a dream come true, my soul mate my everything I LOVE YOU."

Barker was previously married to actress Melissa Kennedy from 2001 to 2002 and to model Shanna Moakler from 2004 to 2008, with whom he shares two kids. Though Kardashian has never been married, she shares three kids with her ex-partner Scott Disick. The two dated on and off from 2006 to 2015.

"She's definitely that for me. I'm invincible when I'm with her. It's just like I never dreamed, I never even considered flying again."

In August, he shared a photo of him and Kardashian embracing in front of an airplane with the caption, "With you anything is possible."
