The best kind of couples always seem to be those you don’t really expect to be together.
Take Pete Davidson, 25, and Kate Beckinsale, 45, for example, who pretty much shocked everyone when they were reported to be seeing each other earlier in the year. Some of Kate’s fans did not take it so well, and she had to savagely and with her token humor, put them down – all the while neither denying nor confirming the relationship.
But the rumors turned out to be true when the duo were seen engaging into some very steamy PDA while at a hockey game in New York City in early March. And now, they seem to have taken the next step in the relationship: meeting the parents!
According to ET, the couple were joined by Beckinsale’s mother Judy Loe, and her stepfather, Roy Battersby, for dinner at Nobu in Malibu, California on Tuesday. This must mean that the relationship between the two is getting serious!
According to a source who spoke for Cosmo, “Kate’s very into Pete…You wouldn’t necessarily put them together, but it’s working for now. [Kate is] excited about getting to know him and hoping to spend more time with him”
While Kate hasn’t really spoken about their relationship, Davidson did address it on Saturday Night Live, specifically their age difference. He joked that if anyone is wondering what it’s like to be in a relationship with a major age gap, they should ask “Leonardo DiCaprio, Jason Statham, Michael Douglas, Richard Gere, Jeff Goldblum, Scott Disick, Dane Cook, Derek Jeter, Bruce Willis, Harrison Ford, Tommy Lee, Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn and whoever the president of France is, Mel Gibson, Billy Joel, Mick Jagger, Sylvester Stallone, Eddie Murphy, Kelsey Grammer. Larry King, Larry King, Larry King, Rod Stewart, and Donald Trump.”
They sparked romance rumors when they were spotted getting cozy at a Golden Globes afterparty in January and reportedly even leaving together. Fox News reported at the time that they were sipping on champagne and being “kind of flirty”. Following the Golden Globes, they were seen together on various other occasions, including at one of Davidson’s comedy gigs as well as a Saturday Night Live after party.
