Fellow co-star Bowen Yang commented as well when asked by the outlet: ‘I don’t know what the nature of the friendship is, but it seems like they’re having a good time hanging out.’

Neither Kim nor Pete could hide their beaming smiles as they took a stroll near her momager Kris Jenner’s $12m mansion where they have been staying together, leaving little doubt their relationship is more than a passing fling.

It is the first romantic partner for the reality star since she filed for divorce from estranged husband Kanye West in February this year, as she made a bold statement with Pete – who showed his support for the star by wearing pajama bottoms from her SKIMS underwear line. 

Kanye, 44, who has now legally changed his name to Ye, was briefly linked to model Irina Shayk in June before seemingly going public with Instagram model Vinetria, 22. 

Meanwhile, Pete, who turned 28 on Tuesday, has previously been romantically involved with a slew of celebrities including Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor, Kate Beckinsale, and his former fiancé Ariana Grande.

In DailyMail.com`s exclusive pictures, mom-of-four Kim can be seen showing off her famous curves in a white leotard and a pair of oversized grey sweats, as she holds hands with Pete who is wearing her SKIMS pajama trousers and a black T-shirt. 

Kim was seen in the full pyjama set earlier in the day.

Interestingly, Kim decided to wear a pair of white Yeezy sneakers — designed by her ex Kanye — for the public outing.

Later, the comedian, who was sporting dark nail varnish, was seen smoking what appeared to be a pre-rolled marijuana joint, which is legal in California.

DailyMail.com has learned that Pete was in Palm Springs for 24 hours but had to leave to get back to work, leaving Kim behind.

The reality star was seen stopping by a convenience store during her outing with Pete. She appeared to pick up some items inside the store

Pete’s trousers are from Kim’s holiday collection of lounge wear, which they were both been seen wearing the day before in a Instagram photo of the pair posted by hip-hop legend Flavor Flav, at Kris’ compound.

A source close to Kim exclusively told DailyMail.com recently that Pete is ‘very aggressive’ with her as he often ‘grabs her waist, compliments her butt and touches her hair’ when they are together. 

‘He is extremely sexual and in her face. He is making it crystal clear he likes her,’ the confidant said.

‘He definitely is not being aloof or playing coy, he is just going for it. And she seems to be loving the attention. It’s nice to see her happy.’ 

Rumors of a possible romance were first sparked when the two kissed during an early October SNL skit as she played Princess Jasmine and he portrayed Aladdin, and while initial reports claimed they are just friends, fans believed something more significant was brewing.

Weeks later, she was spotted at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, California for the theme park’s annual Halloween event with a group of friends, including Pete, her sister Kourtney and Kourtney’s new fiancé, Travis Barker.

Pete and Kim reportedly enjoyed a private rooftop dinner at Campania in Staten Island earlier this month, followed by a group outing at club Zero Bond the following night.

Kim — who shared four children North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm with Kanye — is now gearing up to film her family’s new reality show for Hulu.

This year, she was included in Forbes magazine’s World’s Billionaires list for the first time, which cited her businesses, KKW Beauty and SKIMS, as well as cash from reality TV and endorsement deals for her vast wealth.

Kim’s worth increased from $780 million last October to $1 billion after she cashed in on KKW Beauty by selling 20 percent of the business to Coty for $200 million.

Pete joined the cast of SNL in the 40th season at the age of 20 as one of the youngest cast members, and has since earned a spot on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list in addition to a host of movie and television roles and accolades.
