Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have fast become one of 2022's most unexpected (and, yet, totally loveable) celebrity couples. To date, the SKIMS founder and comedian's romance has been a real whirlwind and, wow, where do we even begin?
Here's a look back at Kim and Pete's relationship so far, starting with the latest update. From their first kiss on SNL, to secret dates, PDA and meeting the parents...
Kim reveals how she made the first move on Pete
If there's one thing we've been waiting for in the Kim x Pete love tale, it's their origin story. Well, now we finally have it, after Kim revealed during an episode of The Kardashians just how she first made a move on the comedian.
She explained that after filming their Saturday Night Live skit together she realised there was a spark there.
"... when we kissed in scene, it was just a vibe. And I was like 'Oh shit, maybe I just need to try something different'."
She explained that she was hoping they might connect at the after party, but he was playing it cool. "[Pete] does not give me the time of day. So, a few days later, I called the producer at SNL, and I was like 'Hey, do you have Pete's number?' and they were like, 'Yeah!'"
She also added that she hadn't actually intended for the whole thing to turn into a relationship, "... I was just thinking like, 'Heard about this BDE. Need to get out there.' I was just basically DTF."
She then added to the whole thing by posting a video of the pair of them kissing on her Instagram Story, and it kind of feels like you're intruding!?
Have these guys been taking lessons from Kravis?
Here's where it all began...

It's Valentine's Day, and all our favourite celebs are going all out, From Kravis to Cardi B and in the context of Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's fledgling relationship, a public kiss is a big deal.
Which is why fans all lost it after Pete and Kim celebrated V-Day with their first actual PDA while on a date in NYC. The pictures, which were published by Page Six, show the couple en route to a romantic dinner at luxury New York restaurant Cipriani. Wearing matching sunglasses and holding hands, the pair shared a quick kiss before leaving the restaurant.
It might not seem like a lot, but given that the pair have been rumoured to be dating for around four months it's kind of a big deal that this is our first glimpse of PDA. Have they been taking lessons from Kravis?!
9th March 2022 - Kim discusses possibility of filming new show with Pete, opens up about their relationship
This week, Kim, Kris, Khloé, and Kourtney starred on the cover of Variety magazine to promote their new Hulu reality show, The Kardashians. In the tell-all interview, Kim opened up about her relationship with Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson, and whether he will be part of the new show.
“I have not filmed with him,” she said. “And I’m not opposed to it. It’s just not what he does. But if there was an event happening and he was there, he wouldn’t tell the cameras to get away. I think I might film something really exciting coming, but it wouldn’t be for this season.”
But fans will still get to hear all about the relationship, according to Kim. She says the show will cover “how we met and who reached out to who and how it happened and all the details that everyone wants to know. I’m definitely open to talking, and I definitely explain it.”
20th March 2022 - Kim speaks about whether she'd ever get a tattoo dedicated to Pete Davidson
Obviously, Kim's new boyfriend has a lot of tattoos. So, while it was pretty quick (they've only been together since October 2021), it didn't come as a huge surprise to fans that Pete Davidson already has "a few" inkings dedicated to his new girlfriend, including her name across his chest.
But, what would be a surprise is if the famously tattoo-less SKIMS mogul got her very first inking in honour of her new boyfriend. So, we've been on tenterhooks for the answer ever since we found out about Pete's "branding", as Kim called it.
Well, it doesn't look like it's likely to happen anytime soon. According to a source, while Kim thinks Pete's dedications are "cute" she won't be getting any of her own.
"Kim is going to leave all the tattoos and branding to Pete and she won’t repay the favour on getting her own," the source told Hollywood Life. "Kim is going to show her love for Pete in other ways rather than putting stuff on her skin."
Okay so that seems like a pretty firm no... understood!
5th April 2022 - Kim reveals how serious she is about Pete
In a new interview, the 41-year-old touched on her new relationship, explaining she wouldn't be with Pete if it wasn't something she was thinking of as long-term. "Obviously, I want to take my time, but I'm very happy and very content. And, it's such a good feeling just to be at peace," she told Good Morning America.
When asked "How serious is it?", Kim replied, "I am a relationship kind of girl, for sure, and I wouldn't be with someone if I didn't plan on spending a lot of my time with them."
27th April 2022 - Kim and Pete share some sweet PDA
Kim and Pete just keep getting cuter and cuter, finally sharing their first ever pics together as a couple throughout March and April. Now, Kim's posted a dedicated Instagram grid pic with Pete for the third time, and it features some very sweet PDA as the pair walk together holding hands.
The photos in question were taken at the premiere for the Kardashian-Jenner family's new Hulu/Disney+ series The Kardashians. The second slide shows Pete opening Kim's car door for her, with the third seeing the couple walking hand-in-hand as they arrive at the event together.
