Back in January dating rumours started going on around about Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale. Fans of the 25-year-old comedian and the 45-year-old actress have been searching for details of this unlikely duo and trying to find out if they really are a couple. Scroll down for answers to all of your Pete and Kate questions.
How did they meet?
There is no official story on how Davidson and Beckinsale met but they were first spotted together at an Golden Globes After Party by InStyle. Sources confirmed that Kate and Pete appeared to be flirting together and spending most of the night with only one another. “Kate and Pete were flirting at the InStyle party and she was following him around a bit and waiting for him,” a source tells Us Weekly. “People approached her and she didn’t want to talk to anyone else.”
They are such an unlikely pair, how did this happen?
Beckinsale’s most recent exes, Jack Whitehall, 30, and Matt Rife, who is in his twenties, are both comedians and are younger than Kate. Davidson is not a surprising choice for the actress. “Kate is into Pete and he’s exactly her type,” an insider told Us Weekly. “She likes young guys who make her laugh.” Another source told E! “They may seem like an unlikely match, but she thinks he’s great and she just loves all the laughs she has with him.”
Fans are also surprised that Pete is already in a new relationship since his break up with Ariana at the end 0f 2018 but that relationship is long over.
Have they confirmed that they are dating?
Pete: A source told Us Weekly that Davidson hinted that something is going on between him and the 45-year-old actress during his comedy show on January 12. An audience member shouted Beckinsale’s name during his set, and Davidson said “Yes,” and “smiled sheepishly” at the suggestion.
Kate: On a recent Instagram post of her mother, one commenter replied, “Dear heavens, Kate. Not Pete Davidson.” This prompted Beckinsale to respond: “@bubs5983 no that’s my mother. Easy mistake.” We think that this cheeky response may mean something as she did not out right deny the rumour and nor has Pate.
Have they been spotted together by paparazzi?
Yes they have. Kate attended one of Pete’s comedy sets and they were spotted leaving through the back exit together.
