Pete Davidson has seemingly confirmed his latest A-list romance with bombshell model Emily Ratajkowski as the couple were spotted sharing a loving hug for the first time. The comedian confirmed the widespread rumours about his newest girlfriend as they met up to celebrate his 29th birthday on Wednesday night after a source revealed how he had fallen for the beauty’s ‘intelligence’.
The former Saturday Night Live star and the model were captured on a date in New York City, just days after rumours of a romance between them first began to swirl, with Emily even carrying a wrapped gift for the birthday boy in her hand, a book from West Village-based book store Three Lives & Company. However, Pete and Emily both appeared delighted to see one another.
According to witnesses, the comedian arrived at the model’s West Village apartment in his Mini Cooper with Emily stepping out into the street to meet him, as reported by DailyMail. But when photographers ‘swarmed the couple’, Pete seemingly got spooked and drove off – leaving his date standing in the street alone. Later, delighted Pete couldn’t wipe the smile off his face as he pulled the model into a hug, before ushering her down the hallway of the building.
However, after celebrating the birthday boy’s special day, Emily was later seen returning home to her own apartment solo. The comedian is on the rebound after he split from Kim Kardashian in August following a nine-month high-profile fling. Pete’s romance with Kim came after the actor built himself a reputation as one of Hollywood’s most prolific lotharios, having dated a string of other A-list women including Ariana Grande, Kate Beckinsale, Kaia Gerber, Margaret Qualley and Phoebe Dynevor.
Meanwhile, Emily was last linked to DJ Orazio Rispo, who she was seen passionately kissing in New York City last month, following her split from husband Sebastian Bear-McClard in September. In an awkward twist, Pete and Sebastian have mingled in the same circle and both attended a basketball game together in 2020. Sebastian also executive produced Halina Reijn’s black comedy slasher Bodies Bodies Bodies, in which Pete starred.
