Travis Barker takes credit for his daughter Alabama for facing her fear of flying to celebrate his 46th birthday with him in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Alabama had posted “Love you the most” on Travis’ vacation message, prompting him to write, “love you more… @alabamaluellabarker, I’m so proud of you for flying.”

On the trip to Cabo, they accompanied Alabama’s brother Landon, Travis’ fiancée Kourtney Kardashian and two of the three young children she shares with ex Scott Disick.

In his 2015 memoir entitled Can I Say, Barker claimed that Alabama, who was just three at the time, could tell that something was wrong with the plane he was traveling with with his associate DJ AM, security guard, assistant, and two pilots.

Travis, who shares Alabama and Landon with second wife Shanna Moakler, recalls: “[She] kept saying, “The roof is going off. Dad, the roof is going off.”‘

Travis and his crew had just played a show in South Carolina and boarded a plane to their next destination, which was due to crash shortly after takeoff.

Barker and DJ AM were the only two of the six passengers to survive the horrific crash. They each suffered second and third degree burns.

Born Adam Michael Goldstein, DJ AM sadly passed away in 2009 from a prescription drug overdose, as reported by People at the time.

In August, Barker took his first flight to the same destination on his most recent birthday trip, Cabo San Lucas, on a private flight with Kourtney.

He revealed that it was the 42-year-old founder of POOSH who convinced him to overcome his fear of flying.

Travis previously told Nylon magazine that “I made a deal with her that she just said to me, ‘I would love to travel with you so much. I want to go to Italy with you.'”

He gave Kardashian one condition to travel, which she fulfilled.

“I said, ‘Well, when the day comes when you want to fly, I’ll tell you I’ll do it to you. I’d do anything to you. And just give me 24 hours notice.” And that’s what she did,’ he recalled.

And Travis, who popped the question with a romantic beach proposal last month, noted that his partner has changed his life in recent months.

He added, “It’s still very new to me, but having something that gives me the strength and hope to overcome things that have been so traumatic in my life just says a lot.”

The artist went on to say that the time spent by his fiancée had made a marked change in his personality.

‘She certainly is to me. I am invincible when I am with her. It’s like I never dreamed, I never even considered flying again,” he said.
