Newly engaged couple Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are going strong.

The longtime friends started dating earlier this year, and it was Travis' attentiveness as a father that sealed the deal for Kourt – The Blink 182 drummer shares stepdaughter Atiana, daughter Alabama, and son Landon, with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler, while Kourtney shares Mason, Penelope and Reign with Scott Disick.

Now, a source tells People Kourt is "head over heels in love" with Travis because of how he is around her kids. "He's so sweet and loving towards her and her children," the source said. "Their families also blended easily and nicely, and they all get along so well."

The insider added: "She fell for Travis because he's such a there-for-his-kids father. He has a huge heart."

The couple spent some time together over the holidays, visiting Disneyland with their blended family; all while, their cover of Jingle Bells with momager Kris Jenner has been climbing the charts.

"The happiest place on earth, in the rain at Christmas time," Kourt captioned their Disneyland outing, with Travis responding: "Can't think of anything better."
