"Pete can be super charming, and Kim loves the attention," the Insider told PEOPLE, adding that they're having "fun" together. "She is having fun and enjoying life," the source shared. "Her focus is still on her kids and work, but you can tell that she is ready to date. She is very happy and in a good place. She has moved on from Kanye and feels it's for the best."
As for Davidson, he has previously dated another beautiful celebrity: Ariana Grande. According to Insider, the singer publicly interacted with Davidson for the first time on SNL in 2016. The pair eventually got engaged but split less than five months later. During their relationship, people said that he shouldn't date Grande because of his mental illness.
The comedian, who has been open about his experiences with rehab, depression, and borderline personality disorder, penned down a moving note addressing the issue. He wrote: "normally i wouldn't comment on something like this cause like f--- you." He continued, "but i've been hearing a lot of 'people with bdp can't be in relationships' talk. i just wanna let you know that's not true. just because someone has a mental illness does not mean they can't be happy and in a relationship. it also doesn't mean that person makes the relationship toxic. everybody is different, and there are a lot of treatments for mental illnesses, and I have done/am doing all of them."

Recently, supermodel Emily Ratajkowski also stood up for Davidson and broke down what women find attractive about him on Late Night With Seth Meyers. "I think he's great," Ratajkowski said when Meyers showed her a photo of the two modeling together for a Moose Knuckles campaign. The 30-year-old told Meyers that "he's a professional. He got into character in a real way." When the 47-year-old host seemed at first skeptical of Davidson's ability in front of the camera, Ratajkowski stood up for Davidson and said that "as a model" herself, she was "impressed."

When Meyers pointed out that Davidson must have felt insecure being the guy on the shoot with a "little less of a pedigree," Ratajkowski told Meyers he was being "mean" and explained Davidson's allure. She added, "He's got the height. Obviously, women find him very attractive. I feel like only other men feel [that he isn't attractive]. Guys are like, 'Wow. What's that guy got?' I mean, he seems super charming. He's vulnerable, he's lovely. His fingernail polish is awesome. He looks good!" she said. "Good relationship with his mother. We love it. It's hard to find [men with those qualities]," she concluded.
