Despite the hiccups in her personal life, actress and model Shanna Moakler is always upbeat and busy with work. She is balancing her work, motherhood, and her relationship beautifully, while making big strides in her professional and personal life. Her tumultuous relationship with ex-husband Travis Barker seems to be over now, as the two co-parent their kids.

The complex relationship status of Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler has kept their fans, the media, and police on edge, ever since the couple got married on October 30, 2004. Barker is the drummer for Blink-182, and was a member of the bands +44, Box Car Racer, as well as The Transplants. Moakler, on the other hand, first found fame as a beauty pageant winner and then as a model for Playboy magazine. Travis Barker’s ex-wife had an uneven career over the years as an actress and model, with her personal life often in disarray. She has constantly been in the public eye for both her professional achievements and her personal matters.

Born on March 28, 1975 in Providence, Rhode Island to Gail Moakler and John Moakler III, Shanna Moakler’s age is 42. She is of German, Portuguese, and Irish descent and was a tomboy who loved to play outdoors as a child.

In December 2001, she was named Playmate of the Month for Playboy magazine.

An Uneasy Truce

Shanna Moakler has three kids: Landon Asher and Alabama Luella with Travis Barker, and Atiana Cecilia with Oscar De La Hoya.

Moakler has lived a life full of adventure both professionally and personally, and that reflects in her posts. Right now, she and Barker are co-parenting their children peacefully, something they have been doing for over a year without a hitch.
