AceShowbiz - Alabama Barker has nothing but glowing words for Kourtney Kardashian. After her biological mother Shanna Moakler seemingly dissed her stepmother on social media, the "Meet the Barkers" alum paid tribute to "The Kardashians" star on her birthday and praised her for being "the best stepmom."
On Tuesday, April 18, Alabama made use of Instagram Story to wish Kourtney a happy birthday. Over a snap capturing her 44-year-old stepmother and her dad Travis Barker, the 17-year-old gushed, "Happy birthday Kourt. You're the best stepmom I could ask for."
The teen's sweet words for Koutney did not stop there. "…, you are so caring and generous for others, you are such a family person and such a hard working mom, 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," she raved.
Alabama's birthday tribute for Kourtney came after her mother, Shanna, dissed the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star. At the time, Shanna responded to a fan's comment and shaded Kourtney by stating that the latter posted more photos with the former's kids than with her own kids.
The shade came after Shanna uploaded an Instagram selfie on April 13. In response to the post, her fan made a reference to Kourtney and Travis' Hulu wedding special "Til Death Do Us Part Kourtney & Travis" as saying, "I hope that you get a huge apology some day for what was said on that exploitative, money grabbing, circus."
In the same comment, the fan continued, " 'He's been through Hell' 'Kourtney has filled a void for me.' #parentalalienationawareness." Shanna apparently noticed the fan's reaction and wrote in return, "she post more of my kids then her own lol."
Shanna, who also shares 19-year-old Landon with Travis, has been estranged from her kids who stayed full-time with their father. Previously, Alabama has requested fans to stop portraying Shanna as "an amazing mom" since she "has never completely been in [her] life."
Kourtney herself has three kids, 13-year-old Mason, 10-year-old Penelope and 8-year-old Reign, with her ex Scott Disick. She and Travis, who are also close to Shanna's 24-year-old daughter Atiana, raise their blended family since they tied the knot in May 2022.
