While Kim had difficulties giving Pete her number at the time due to the gloves on her Balenciaga outfit, the pair reconnected in October 2021 when she appeared on his NBC sketch comedy show. During the broadcast, the pair shared an onscreen kiss—something that Kim said had sparked “a little zing” in her mind—and they started dating shortly after.
“When we kissed, I was just like, ‘Hmm!'” the SKIMS mogul remembered. “A few days later, I was like, ‘Hmm, there is some BDE action.”
Last May, Kim turned heads in Marilyn Monroe‘s iconic Bob Mackie-designed dress as she and Pete stepped out to 2022 Met Gala. The glamorous date night was documented on an episode of The Kardashians, during which the couple reminisced about their first encounter.
“Remember when I asked for your number at the last Met and you pretended that you couldn’t give it to me because you had gloves on?” Pete asked, prompting Kim to quip, “I know. Will you ask me again this time? I don’t have gloves on.”
