If you’ve been following Pete Davidson’s personal life trajectory from goofy Saturday Night Live guy to goofy dude that lands an astounding amount of famous hotties, then you might think that Pete’s end game is to be “that guy” who eventually turns 89, and writes a 2000-page memoir titled To All The Hot A-List Brunettes I Banged Before. But according to Pete, he’s just a dude who eventually wants to get married and have kids. Someone get Kris Jenner an absorbent towel, as she likely just started salivating over the ratings for a very special six-part episode of The Kardashians called “May The Fourth (Wedding) Be With Kim.”
Pete opened up about his desire to be a married father one day on a recent episode of Kevin Hart’s Peacock series Hart to Heart (yes, Stefanie Powers should sue, but that’s not the point here). Kevin asked Pete if it’s currently a priority for him to be thinking about marriage and kids with his current partner of about seven or so months, Kim Kardashian. And yes, he is often thinking about legally binding himself to another human and procreating with them, but that’s not unique to his feelings for Kim. According to Pete, he’s had kids on the brain since his own father, NY firefighter Scott Davidson died on September 11th, 2001, when he was seven years old. via People magazine:
“Since my dad died, I was like, ‘Oh, I can’t wait to have a kid,'” he said, noting how he once felt like fatherhood might not be his path.
“I don’t like saying corny shit, the reasoning was like, I don’t want a kid to ever feel like how I feel right now,” he explained, referring to the death of his firefighter father in the Sept. 11 attacks. “It wasn’t his fault; he passed away. But just to be there so that someone doesn’t have to feel like that.”
When it comes to having kids himself, Davidson said, “I’m very excited to do that for someone and watch them have what I didn’t.”
Pete later said in the interview that he really does love thinking about raising a Lil’ Pete. There goes my theory that Pete’s spare time is spent daydreaming about his next weird tattoo. via People:
“My favorite thing ever, which I have yet to achieve, I wanna have a kid. That’s like my dream. It’s like, super corny,” said Davidson. “It would be so fun. Dress up the little dude,” continued the comedian. “That’s kind of what I’m just preparing for now, is just trying to be as good as a dude, develop and get better so when that happens it’s just easier.”
He added that marriage is “100%” in the cards for him. Naturally, Pete is just speaking hypothetically and wasn’t directly implying that he’s got a ring in his pocket that he’s ready to slip onto Kim’s Botoxed finger any time soon. Although it wouldn’t be the strangest thing in the world if Pete and Kim ended up getting married. Pete absolutely wants kids, and Kim clearly likes children (she’s currently got four of her own). Kim also likes getting married. And Pete is extremely committed to his relationship with Kim, having gotten countless tattoos in her honor. Plus, Kim has given Pete plenty of practice at what it takes to be a dad. And I’m not talking about introducing Pete to her kids. Kim’s ass may or may not have destroyed her Met Gala dress, and I’m sure Pete jumped into action, assuring her that everything was fine, that people won’t be mad (just disappointed), and offering to cheer her up by taking her for a ride to get some fat-free frozen water.
