Martha Stewart has responded to viral memes suggesting she would be Kim Kardashian’s ex, Pete Davidson’s next romantic interest.
“Pete Davidson is like the son I never had,” Stewart, 81, gushed to The Daily Mail when asked if she could be his next lover.
“He is a charming boy who is finding his way. I’ve invited him to come on my podcast and I look forward to hearing what he has to say.”
The internet gossip began after a photo of Stewart sweetly holding Davidson’s hand as she posed for a photo with him and Kardashian, 41, during April’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner went viral following Pete and Kim’s breakup.
In May, when asked about the Skims founder and the “Saturday Night Live” star as a couple in an E! News interview, Stewart said they looked “cute together,” despite being an “unlikely pairing.”
“They seem to have a nice affection for one another, which is so nice,” she added at the time.
On Aug. 6, it was confirmed that Kardashian and Davidson split after nine months of dating. A source told Entertainment Tonight that although the former couple still has chemistry, they’re simply in different places in their lives right now.
“They had tons of chemistry, and still do, but she kind of wants to be single and date,” the source explained. “Kim still adores Pete and will always be friends with him. She still thinks he’s the nicest and sweetest guy in the world and there’s no drama or anything weird between them now. She felt like Pete was the extreme opposite of Kanye and it was good for her then.”
