Kim Kardashian consulted multiple therapists and big sister Kourtney Kardashian before introducing Pete Davidson to her four children.
The 41-year-old makeup mogul – who shares North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3 with ex Kanye West – revealed on Tuesday that she dated the 28-year-old comedian for six months before bringing him around the little ones. .
“Luckily I have a sister who has been through it all and we talked about it,” Kim said on a “Today” show, referring to the three children Kourtney, 43, shares with ex Scott Disick.
“I have consulted a few therapists and friends who have experienced it. I definitely wanted to wait six months. That was the marker.”
The reality star noted that “different things work for different people,” explaining, “You just have to do the right thing and try to be as respectful and careful as possible.”
The Skims creator went on to talk about her relationship with the “King of Staten Island” star, whom she began dating in late 2021.
“I waited well over 10 months before I was ready to open up to myself. I think you absolutely need that time to yourself,” she said of dating again after the divorce from West, 45, in February 2021.
“But once you were ready to get out and about, I just felt like I just wanted new energy and something different. [The relationship] certainly surprised me.”
The interview came just days after Kim reunited with West to support North at a basketball game near Thousand Oaks, California.
The co-parenting pros, who were declared legally single in March, were seated one row apart during Friday’s event.
The exes “talked occasionally throughout the evening and seemed cordial,” TMZ reports.
Although the “Saturday Night Live” alum didn’t appear to be in attendance, he was first introduced to North in April.
The New York native was spotted driving Kardashian’s Moke car with North on his lap at the time. Kourtney’s 9-year-old daughter, Penelope, was in the passenger seat.
The following month, Davidson was photographed holding Saint’s hand at The Grove in Los Angeles as they made their way through the mall without Kim.
He and the “Selfish” author made their relationship Instagram official in March.
Kim has recently shared photos from their tropical vacation, which she called “heaven” during Tuesday’s interview.
“It was … really relaxing being away from four kids,” the former E! personality squirted.
