More intel on what exactly is going on between Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale has arrived, courtesy of E!. The outlet spoke to a source who explained that the 25-year-old SNL comedian and 45-year-old actress really are a romantic thing after being photographed holding hands this weekend…but not like, a super serious one. “They spend most of their time on opposite coasts so it’s a casual thing,” the source said. “But they are going to keep talking and having fun together.”
Beckinsale thinks a lot of Davidson, the source added. “Kate thinks he’s the sweetest and nicest guy. They may seem like an unlikely match but she thinks he’s great and she just loves all the laughs she has with him.”
Rumors of Beckinsale and Davidson dating first started when the two were seen leaving a Golden Globes after party together at the beginning of January. A source told Us Weekly that Davidson seemingly confirmed something was going on between them at his January 12 comedy show. An audience member shouted Beckinsale’s name, and Davidson said “yes,” and “smiled sheepishly,” according to the source.
Davidson and Beckinsale’s somewhat public relationship comes shortly after Davidson and Ariana Grande ended their engagement at the end of October. Davidson briefly commented on their split on Saturday Night Live‘s November 4 episode. “The last thing I will say is I know some of you are curious about the breakup, but the truth is it’s nobody’s business,” he started. “And sometimes things just don’t work out, and that’s okay. She’s a wonderful, strong person, and I genuinely wish her all the happiness in the world.”
