The duo we never knew we needed! Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are still going steady, and eight months in, Kim has never looked happier.
While they had been friendly over the years through mutual friends, Kim and Pete’s relationship blossomed eight months after Kim filed for divorce from ex-husband Kanye West. (Kim and the Yeezus rapper wed in 2014 and they share four children – daughters North and Chicago, and sons Saint and Psalm.)
The Kardashians alum was first linked with the Saturday Night Live comedian in October 2021, just after Kim hosted SNL on October 9 and the now-couple appeared together in a skit as Jasmine and Aladdin, even sharing a sweet kiss.
Of the kiss, Kim had this to say in a recent episode of the Kardashians’ eponymous reality series on Hulu: “It was just a vibe. I was like, ‘Oh sh*t, maybe I just need to try something different.’
“I wasn’t even thinking, like, ‘Oh my god, I’m going to be in a relationship with him,’” she continued. Instead, the mogul initially sought a casual hookup which has since become a fully-fledged relationship.
She later gushed about Pete in the episode, describing him as “literally the best human being I’ve ever met. The best heart. People always say, ‘He’s so funny,’ and it has to do with how funny he is. That’s, like, fourth on my list on why I like him. [He] always wants the best for people, can handle anything, always does it with grace. He’s really, really thoughtful and humble and genuine. I would say the perfect word to describe Pete is genuine.” Swoon!
Kardashian added that she kept mum on their relationship because she wanted to make sure it was going to last first. “Honestly, I just feel like I wanted to really make sure and not just be so, ‘Oh my god, I just met someone and I’m having fun,’ and just, like, start talking about it on a show and then if we weren’t talking months later I’d be, like, an idiot or a w***e. Either one.”
