Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson’s romance timeline – from holidays to stepdad duty

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson hit headlines across the world when they were spotted looking cosy last year, following their kiss on Saturday Night Live.

The unlikely couple’s romance came after Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim, 41, split from her husband Kanye West, 45, last year – with Kim filing for divorce in February 2021.

While she and Kanye’s divorce is yet to be finalised, the rapper quickly moved on with actress Julia Fox before going on to date model Chaney Jones.

Kim has since gone on to find love with Pete, 28, and the pair’s romance appears to be going from strength to strength. Let’s take a look into their love story so far…

Saturday Night Live

Kim guest hosted Saturday Night Live back in October 2021, and she starred alongside Pete in a skit, which saw them duo dress up as Aladdin and Princess Jasmine.

During their scene together, they shared a steamy kiss which had viewers talking for weeks and it appears to be the moment that kickstarted their romance, too.

It was just over two weeks later when the pair were spotted out in public together, and eagle-eyed fans quickly noticed they were holding hands.

Rumors of a romance between the pair started to circulate, but neither confirmed or denied anything at the time.

Spotted together

Kim and Pete were first spotted together in late October while riding a rollercoaster together at Knott’s Scary Farm in Buena Park, California.

This was just the beginning of the couple’s secret outings, and in November they were reportedly seen dining at Staten Island’s Campania together.

A source told E! News about the sighting, and revealed that while things between the pair were casual, they were planning to meet up again in New York soon.

Just two weeks later, Pete and Kim were seen holding hands in Palm Springs and rumours of a relationship between the two were rife.

Rapper Flavor Flav then posted a snap of him with Kim, Pete and Kris Jenner shortly afterwards, and the couple were then spotted in December heading for dinner together.

First vacation

After spending New Year’s Eve apart, Kim and Pete jetted off on a romantic holiday together to the Bahamas, marking their first trip as a couple.

A source told Entertainment Tonight at the time: “Kim and Pete are on vacation spending time together. The two weren’t able to ring in the new year since she was with her family in California and Pete was hosting his NYE ​​special in Miami. “

The pair remained tight-lipped about the trip, but the following month Pete appeared to confirm his relationship status during an interview, as he explained that he in his spare time he chills with his girlfriend.

Instagram official

In March, Kim finally went Instagram official with her comedian beau after months of speculation, and shared a string of loved-up snaps of the pair together.

In one photograph, the pair could be seen looking cosy while sitting on the floor, while in another they both posed for a selfie together.

Smitten Kim shared the shots alongside the caption: “Whose car are we gonna take?!” in reference to the 2010 crime thriller The Town.

The following month she shared two photos of herself and Pete looking loved-up as they enjoyed a date night together.

Pete snuggled up to the brunette beauty in one snap while, in a second, they lovingly stared into each other’s eyes. Kim casually told her followers: “late nite snack,” and the post racked up over 11 million likes.


During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kim revealed that Pete had gotten a few tattoos dedicated to her, including a “branding”.

The mum-of-four revealed: “Yeah he has a few tattoos. A few cute ones, you know, that he got. But this one, the Kim one, isn’t a tattoo. It’s actually a branding.”

“Let me explain it,” Kim continued. “He wanted to do something that was really different. First tattoo he got, I said ‘Oh it’s so cute, thank you. Oh my god’, and [with the second one] it was the same again, but that’s what tattoo people do, right? They get tattoos of what’s going on in their life.”

She went on to tell Ellen that her favorite tattoo of Pete’s is one that reads: “My girl is a lawyer”, and she later showed off the inking on Instagram, which appears to be on Pete’s collarbone.

Red carpet debut

The moment everyone had been waiting for came in April, when Pete and Kim made their red carpet debut at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.

The KUWTK star wowed in a silver floor length gown at statement earrings, while Pete opted for a smart black suit with designer sunglasses.

Just a few days later they returned to the red carpet again, this time attending the 2022 Met Gala together.

Kim held onto her beau as they posed for photos together at the event, with the star stunning in Marilyn Monroe’s iconic gown and Pete standing by her side in a tuxedo and sunglasses.

Step-dad duties

Most recently, Pete was spotted out and about with Kim’s eldest son Saint, six, at The Grove mall in West Hollywood.

The comedian held hands with the youngster as they looked at toys together, seemingly confirming that he and Kim had taken their relationship to the next level with Pete meeting her four children.

An insider explained how Kanye has been left unimpressed by Kim and Pete’s romance, especially with Pete spending time with his and Kim’s four children – North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and three year old Psalm.

“[It’s not something] Kanye was prepared for or even thinking about when he and Kim split. For Pete and the kids to get so close, so fast, is deeply unsettling for Kanye.

“It’s really difficult seeing photos of them together everywhere he goes, and he just wishes things were different,” a source told HollywoodLife.

Meanwhile, an inking on Pete’s neck appears to be of Kim and her children’s initials.

Romantic holidays

Kim and Pete recently jetted off on a romantic holiday together, with the mum-of-four taking to Instagram to give fans a glimpse inside their getaway.

The couple enjoyed a day out at the beach together, where they tried their hand at rowing, and Kim revealed that Pete had mastered taking snaps of her for her social media accounts.

Fans were quick to comment on the post with many talking about how happy they looked together, and Kim’s snaps soon racked up over seven million likes.
