Megan Fox and Kourtney Kardashian introduced their boyfriends Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker ahead of a performance of their single “Papercuts” at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards—and confirmed just how serious their relationships are in the process. As in, they inferred that both couples might actually be having babies together in the (possibly very) near future.

“I’m a huge fan of this next performer, I’ve watched him grow, and not just as a performer but as a person,” Fox said when she took the stage in her sequin Mugler dress. “I’m a fan too," Kardashian chimed in coyly. "And I think his drummer is super hot."

But here’s the part where it gets interesting: Just before the cameras panned toward the stage where Kelly and Barker were set to perform, Fox made it clear that the couples are truly both in it for the, erm, long haul, if you will. “New York, I need you to get extra loud for our future baby daddies," she exclaimed with a smile.

It wasn’t the first time that Fox had made her affection for her boyfriend known over the course of the evening. Earlier in the night, she posted a steamy photo set of them both to her Instagram page. “Daddy’s gonna win a VMA,” she captioned the carousel. True to form, Kelly went on to win the award for Best Alternative Song for his single "My Ex's Best Friend” with Blackbear.

While Fox and Machine Gun Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, have been an item for quite some time now, Barker and Kardashian have gone public with their relationship only recently—and have garnered the adorable pet name “Kravis” in the process.

Baker and Barker are longtime musical collaborators, and the couples have made it a point to travel together over the last few months: They've appeared together at fights in Los Vegas and concerts in Los Angeles, to name a few!.There are even reports floating around the internet that Baker and Fox might even be engaged, so this most recent announcement should come as no surprise. In any case, good for them both.
