Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson took a big step last Thursday (April 7), making their first public appearance together as a couple.
The SKIMS founder took her boyfriend as her date to the premiere of her family’s new Hulu show, The Kardashians, ins Los Angeles.
Though they skipped walking the red carpet together, they did show some sweet and subtle PDA at the event. Photos show Pete holding Kim’s hand as photographers swarmed the pair outside Goya Studios.
Then, while Kim greeted fans and posed for photos alone and with sisters Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian and mom Kris Jenner, Pete stepped out of the spotlight and supported her from afar.

Kim looked every bit a SKIMS doll in a skintight silver latex gown by Thierry Mugler that featured a bustier bodice and a thigh-high slit. She accessorized with a metallic choker, earrings, and bracelets. Her hair was swept up into an elegant bun, with two strands of hair left framing her face.
The Saturday Night Live comedian looked cool and casual in a black suit jacket from Midnight Studios by Shane Gonzales, black pants, a simple white cotton shirt, and black sunglasses.
Pete was not the only partner to offer his support last night, Kourtney’s almost-husband Travis Barker walked the red carpet with her (yes, in coordinating black ensembles) and his children, Kris’s longtime boyfriend Corry Gamble posed in a black suit and pink top that matched her hot pink dress, and even Kourtney’s ex Scott Disick was there—with his new girlfriend.
Pete and Kim first starting dating last last year, following Kim’s split from Kanye West. The two went Instagram-official last month, when the mom of four shared a couple photos of them together.
In various interviews as of late, Kim has opened up about how happy she is with the comedian. She told Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on her show that Pete has “a few” tattoos of her on his body, and a branding of her name. She also addressed Kanye’s recent comments about the couple on social media and said she has decided to prioritize happiness and take the high road when it comes to drama. “I encourage my friends and the people I love to be happy, and I went for it. I was like, you know what, I’m in my 40s, f**k it,” she said. “Just go for it. Find your happiness. I went for it. And I took my time and I found it, and it feels so good. And I want to hold onto that forever.”
Kim also spoke about Pete during an appearance this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live! She confirmed that her first kiss with Pete was on the SNL stage, when he was dressed like Aladdin and she was Princess Jasmine. In the now-famous scene, the two were kneeling on a “magic carpet” when they kissed. Kim revealed that Pete actually gave her the carpet and the outfits as a romantic gesture on Valentine’s Day.
In an interview with Good Morning American about The Kardashians, Kim said she’s “very happy” and “at peace” with her beau, and her family members agreed he is a catch.
“He just makes her laugh, and she laughs all the time,” sister Khloé said. “Pete’s great. Pete’s great. He’s a really nice guy,” mom Kris added. And Kim even hinted that she can see herself with Pete in the future. “I wouldn’t be with someone if I didn’t plan on spending a lot of my time with them,” she said. “Obviously, I wanna take my time, but I’m very happy and very content, and it’s such a good feeling just to be at peace.”
