Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson's rollercoaster romance is, literally and figuratively, the real deal. 

No need to wonder, "Who is Kim Kardashian dating?" (Sorry to break the news, Kanye.) 

All it seemingly took was a hosting gig on SNL and a theme park visit to make the SKIMS founder swoon. According to sources, Pete has won Kim over with his sense of humor. Allegedly, she is falling quickly and cannot resist a guy who can make her laugh. And, Kardashian fans could be getting a sneak peek of their new and private relationship in the new Kardashians on Hulu series...

It might not have been a pair we saw coming, but needless to say, they're here. Let's take a look back at how it all began. 

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson on 'SNL': October 2021

Kim Kardashian on SNL was a contentious topic. Despite doubt from the critics and naysayers, the reality TV star managed to hold her own during her October 10 hosting gig. Plus, she seemingly found a bit of romance in the process.

You might recall the skit where Kim and Pete impersonated Jasmine and Aladdin—and shared a quick kiss! Was this the start of it all?

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson at Knott's Scary Farm

Following Kim's Saturday Night Live appearance, the pair were spotted by People Magazine, riding a roller coaster together at Knott’s Scary Farm in California, and while on the ride—they were pictured holding hands! 

Okay, the twosome were also joined at the amusement park by the newly engaged Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker as well as the drummer's BFF, Machine Gun Kelly (who is also in his own celebrity power couple—catch up on how did MGK and Megan Fox meet in case you missed it) Could this have possibly been a set-up? A double date?

An insider also confirmed to People that: “They hang in the same circles so they will be together from time to time. It's just friends hanging out.”

Despite the pair being just friends, the cute rollercoaster pictures have, of course, caught the imagination of Twitter. One user tweeted: “If Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson start dating I will be OBSESSED.”

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson in NYC: November 2021

To fuel the dating speculation, Kim made her way to New York City (well, Staten Island) on November 2 for dinner with Pete in his hometown. TMZ got the scoop and reported that they were dining privately—no Kourt, Trav or MGK in sight—at an Italian restaurant called Campania.

They allegedly dined on the rooftop, appearing to suggest they are more than friends. Plus, considering they were just together for a spooky Halloween weekend, why do you think they're getting together—across the country no less—for another outing so quickly? 

Kim and Pete spotted together on Valentine's Day 2022

The KUWTK star and comedian appeared to confirm their relationship in early 2022 by venturing out on a romantic early V-Day dinner to Lilia's in Brooklyn, New York. 

The pair were spotted holding hands and kissing (!) with both showing off huge smiles on their faces.

What happened next for the confirmed couple then?

Kim Kardashian talks about Pete and her new Hulu show: March 2022 

Apart from the occasional public sighting, the famous pair have been very tight-lipped about their blossoming romance. No doubt, Kim's very public and dramatic divorce from Kanye West is a key factor in their desire to keep their relationship on the QT.

However, in an interview with Variety about the famous family's new Hulu show, Kim finally opened up about Pete and whether there's a possibility of him making a cameo. 

She explained that while she hasn't filmed with him yet, she's not opposed to the idea. Kim said: "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." 

The SKIMS founder also revealed that she does talk about him in the show, and even explains how and when their relationship all began! So we are getting a bit of an inside look into their new relationship very soon—exciting stuff!

Kim then teased us even more, adding: "I think I might film something really exciting coming [with Davidson], but it wouldn’t be for this season.”

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson previous relationships

Pete has been linked to several glamorous women in the past, including model Kaia Gerber and Kate Beckinsale, and was even engaged to Ariana Grande. Most recently, he was in a relationship with Bridgerton’s Phoebe Dyvenor.

On her end, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have of course gone their separate ways after eight of marriage. 

Kardashian was previously married to Kris Humphries, and long before that, a short-lived marriage with Damon Thomas. She was also in a serious relationship with former American football player Reggie Bush, and has also been linked to football coach Miles Austin and singer Ray J.

There's no telling what's in store for lovebirds Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson next, but let's face it: the internet is intrigued!
