Pete Davidson has finally confirmed his romance with Kate Beckinsale and he’s ‘not bothered’ about their 20-year age gap either, FYI.

The Saturday Night Live comedian casually addressed his blossoming romance with the British actress during the Weekend Update on last night’s episode.

When asked if there was anything to add at the end of the weekly segment, Pete, 25, tried to act nonchalant about his new relationship with Kate, 45, and their controversial age gap with two decades separating them.

Without mentioning Kate’s name, Pete said: ‘Apparently people have a crazy fascination with our age difference.’

He added: ‘It doesn’t really bother us, but then again I’m new to this…

‘So if you have questions about a relationship with a big age difference, just ask Leonardo DiCaprio, Jason Statham, Michael Douglas, Richard Gere, Jeff Goldblum, Scott Disick, Dane Cook, Derek Jeter, Bruce Willis, Harrison Ford, Tommy Lee, Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn and whoever the president of France is.’

Oh, and he still wasn’t done.

‘Mel Gibson, Billy Joel, Mick Jagger, Sylvester Stallone, Eddie Murphy, Kelsey Grammer. Larry King, Larry King, Larry King, Rod Stewart and Donald Trump,’ he continued.

So he may have a point.

After months of speculation, the smitten couple finally went public with their romance last week at the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals hockey match where they went heavy on the tongue action and passionately kissed for the world to see.

The pair were first romantically linked in January when Kate was spotted holding the comedian’s hand while leaving a Golden Globes after-party.

It was thought their romance had cooled as they were only spotted on occasion after, but they’ve ramped up the PDA in recent weeks.
