All of our jaws just about hit the ground when romance rumors swirled about Pete Davidson and Kate Beckinsale after the two were reportedly seen leaving a Golden Globes afterparty together on January 6. The two have since been photographed holding hands and are seemingly heating up. Despite their 20-year age gap, a source revealed exclusively to Life & Style that the pair is actually a good match.

“After a turbulent few months, Pete Davidson is back on the right track again after falling into the arms of Kate Beckinsale … Kate’s always had a thing for younger men and Pete is just her type!” the source admitted.

Apparently, the SNL comedian, 25, and actress, 45, have very similar personalities. The source added, “In spite of the age gap, they have a ton in common and share the same sense of humor. She loves watching him perform live!”

It looks like the young stud is learning a few tricks of the trade from the gorgeous Brit. “Pete’s known for his comedy, but Oxford-educated Kate also has a sharp sense of humor. She’s been giving Pete tips on the semi-biographical movie he’s currently working on with Judd Apatow!”

Finding someone new has lifted the Set It Up actor’s spirits, according to a source from In Touch. “Kate has really helped Pete get over his breakup with Ariana Grande,” the insider divulged. “It’s still [in the] early days, and right now they’re just having fun.

Overall, the Big Time Adolescence star seems to be doing better. A separate source exclusively told In Touch that he “looked good” while out on the town with his friend Machine Gun Kelly at the Golden Globes and the two were “smiling” and “laughing.”

After a rough split from the “thank u, next” songstress, Pete deserves to find his own happiness. The fact that he’s rebounding with the smoking hot actress? It’s surprising, but we’re not mad about it.
