Shanna seemed to be feeling the love as she shared a few pirate-themed snaps of her beau to Instagram on Wednesday. 

While he wasn’t quite ready to talk about their current status, he said: ‘I admit…at the time.. things were very difficult especially in our personal lives, which made things hard to focus on one another. 

‘However, Shanna and I have truly found what we needed more of and what was missing just to focus on the fun in life with one another and not letting anyone or anything take that away from us.’ 

‘Were just taking things day by day living our best life as a team and I truly am happy knowing that shes by my side as we both continue to work hard everyday on our individual goals.’ 

Her jovial photo booth scene was a stark contrast to recent posts as days before, Shanna was trying to convince her followers that the past is in the past as she shared a clip from the Point of No Return to Instagram on Monday evening.

Fans assumed her sly statement of ‘I never did mind about the little things’ was a nod to her ex-husband, Travis Barker, recently sharing a tattoo cover-up of her name with a new scorpion piece following his big engagement news to Kourtney Kardashian. 

Shanna shared a bikini snap with her 315,000 loyal followers and wrote: ‘The jungle is dark but full of diamonds.’

The 46-year-old former pageant queen has had a contentious time with Kravis, and even at one time admitted that their romance was ‘putting a wedge’ between her relationship with her kids. 

The Blink 182 drummer dropped down to one knee and proposed to Kourtney on the beach overlooking the sunset in Montecito last week with her famous family looking on from the Miramar hotel.

Hours after the romantic proposal, Shanna took to Instagram with a not-so-subtle reaction as she dramatically admitted to being ‘temporarily closed for spiritual maintenance.’ 

And while the happy couple were certainly in celebration mode, her ex, Scott Disick, became a trending topic after fans were curious about his reaction following his disastrous leaked direct message to her ex Younes Bendjima where he criticized Kourtney for too much PDA with Travis on their trip to Italy.

Travis famously filed for divorce from Shanna in 2006 after just two years of marriage following claims that she had been unfaithful. 

Earlier this year, Shanna decried her exes very public new romance and told Us Weekly that it’s negatively affecting the bond she has with her two kids. 

‘The Kardashians are buying my kids Prada every other day,’ the former Miss USA told the publication.

‘They’re going on lavish trips. They’re doing all these things, which is fine. I think it’s nice that they’re being kind to my kids. I want that for my children.’

She noted that there’s ‘severe distancing’ between her and Alabama, 15, and Landon, 18, and noted: ‘I don’t think it’s great when they put a wedge in between their biological mother.’

Kourtney went public with her new romance at the beginning of the year, and has Reign, six, Penelope, eight, and Mason, 11, from her previous relationship to Scott Disick. 

Shanna also recently told US Weekly that his infidelity with Kim Kardashian was the catalyst to finally end their relationship.

‘I divorced my ex because, I saw them — I caught them having an affair,’ she said.

'The Kardashians are buying my kids Prada every other day,' the former Miss USA told the publication. Travis and Shanna share Landon, 18, and Alabama, 15, in addition to her daughter, Atiana, from her previous relationship with Oscar de la Hoya

Shanna added that she ‘saw text messages’ between the pair and alleged the ‘affair’ took place before Keeping Up With The Kardashians premiered in 2007.

She claimed mutual friends of the trio told her of the alleged affair, stating ‘they sent me all their [text] conversations and I’m also close friends with people who were there, while things were happening.’

According to Shanna’s timeline, Kim was still working alongside Paris Hilton as her ‘closet organizer’ when she first came in contact with Travis. 

She said: ‘[Travis] had already had an affair with Paris Hilton. And… at the time Kim was Paris’ closet organizer, they were best friends. And he started using [Kim] as a model for [his clothing company], Famous Stars and Straps.’

She added that she had asked her former husband to ‘not to use’ Kim as a model due to her direct ties to Paris, and that she and Travis had been ‘working on our marriage and trying to heal through that affair’, that but he continued to work with Kim despite her wishes.

Shanna continued: ‘Then I received all the text messages and the other third parties kind of let me know. It’s something I was well aware of.’ 

Meanwhile, Kourtney’s ex took to Instagram to promote his Talentless tracksuit brand. 

Scott sported black shades as he leaned against a wall while clad in a gray reflective tracksuit. 

He captioned the shot: ‘@talentless elevated their collection by introducing a NEW reflective nylon tracksuit. This piece is the perfect layering item for fall/winter and available in only 2 colors – CHROME and MERLOT.’
