Pete Davidson talks having a baby with Kim: ‘That’s kind of what I’m preparing for now’

Pete Davidson

Could North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm be about to get a new sibling soon…?

Chatting to comedian Kevin Hart for his new show Hart to Heart, Pete Davidson opened up about his dreams for the future – and how becoming a dad is definitively in the cards..

The 28-year-old funny man, who has famously been  coupled up with Kim Kardashian since autumn last year, opened up about his childhood following the death of his own dad, a firefighter who died on September 11, 2001.

“Dad passed early. Single mom. New sister,” the former Saturday Night Live star said.

“I just did not handle it great. So it was just like a fucking nightmare.”

‘Having a kid is my dream’

But although growing up was rough, Davidson says his family was supportive of his stand-up comedy career. “They were like, ‘Whatever makes you happy,’” he said, adding that he’s definitely a “family guy.”

Elaborating on the matter, Davidson said:

“My favourite thing ever, which I have yet to achieve—I wanna have a kid. That’s, like, my dream. It’s, like, super corny.”

Hart, 43, then interjected, telling Davidson, “That’s not super corny – that’s the best goddamn thing you could do in life.”

“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 also noted getting married is “100 percent” connected to his desire to have children down the line.

“That’s the way I hope it goes, you know?” he told Hart.

In April, a source told PEOPLE that Davidson has “slowly been getting to know” Kim’s four kids.

“Kim trusts Pete with her kids. He is starting to spend time with them without her. She wants her kids to bond with Pete,” said the insider, who noted that there is always security when Davidson takes the kids out. “Kim’s relationship with Pete is very strong. They are talking about the future. It’s very important to Kim that her kids get along with Pete.”
