If you would have told me when Bridgerton hit Netflix in December 2020 that Saturday Night Live's Pete Davidson would soon be dating the show's star, I wouldn't have believed you. Sure, the comedian has dated a handful of gorgeous and super famous ladies starting with Ariana Grande back in 2018. However, this is just a pairing I did not see coming. And it looks like many fans are in the same boat as me!
Nevertheless, it very much looks like Pete is now dating Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor. The 25-year-old British actress plays Daphne Bridgerton in the highly popular Netflix show, and though many hoped she would be in a relationship with her co-star Regé-Jean Page, that is not the case. Instead, rumors began swirling in March 2021 that she had quietly begun seeing the King of Staten Island star.
And now, Pete might have just spoken out on their relationship, at least very coyly. As reported by E! News, the 27-year-old actor recently did a Q&A over Zoom with students from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in which he was asked some very personal questions. When he was asked who his celebrity crush is, Pete responded, "I'm with my celebrity crush," reportedly showing off a smile. Hm, so he basically confirmed he is dating his celebrity crush.
Considering there haven't been rumors of him dating anyone other than Phoebe, we're going to guess he just hinted at their relationship!
As Netflix Life has reported, sources shared last month that Pete and Phoebe have "grown close" recently, and the comedian was reportedly spotted out in Altrincham, England--which happens to be where Phoebe's family home is located.
Neither stars have officially confirmed or denied these rumors, though it all but appears they're an item. Do you ship them?
