While Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson started dating in October 2021, her kids, North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3, didn’t meet him until six months later.
On Tuesday’s episode of TODAY, Kardashian, 41, revealed to Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie how she settled on that time frame after talking with sister Kourtney Kardashian, also divorced with kids, who she said has “been through it.” In addition, she also spoke to “a few therapists.”

“I definitely wanted to wait six months and that was the marker. It’s different for everyone and different things work for different people,” Kardashian shared. “But you just have to do what feels right and try to just be as respectful and cautious as possible.”
Kardashian filed for divorce from Kanye West, in February 2021, being married for a total of six years. Kim said she steered clear of dating apps and shot down offers to be set up.
“I waited a while. I waited like a good 10 months before I was ready to open myself up,” she revealed, noting that she was searching for “new energy and something different.”

She said that meeting Davidson, 28, took her “by surprise.”
Kardashian recently celebrated Father’s Day with Kanye, 45, and their kids this past Sunday. She shared how North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm spent the day with their dad, and then they all shared blended family dinner, cooked by 9-year-old North.
“Of course I wanted to honor and respect the amazing people and fathers — men — in my life that have raised me and are raising my children. So everything is going good,” Kardashian explained.
Kardashian and Davidson just returned from a tropical vacation.

She recently shared a cute series of photos with the caption “stranded.”
“I would say the best way to describe it is really relaxing. Like, to be away from four kids even for just a few days is heaven,” she said. “I love my kids, but you know, any mom knows what I mean.”
Kim Kardashian was recently declared legally single in 2022. The judge’s decision comes during a bifurcation hearing, People reported at the time. Essentially, a bifurcation hearing allows couples to legally get divorced before all of the other issues involved in divorces, like finances, child and spousal support, are agreed upon.
She and Pete Davidson had started dating several months before this in October 2021, months after filing for divorce.
