The 41-year-old reality TV star reveals on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, in an episode to air on April 13, that the 28-year-old Saturday Night Live star branded his chest with her first name. That's not all. Davidson also has at least three tattoos paying homage to the mogul.
"Yeah he has a few tattoos," she says in an interview taped on Tuesday. "A few cute ones that he got, but the 'Kim' one isn't a tattoo. It's a branding. Because, let me explain, he wanted to do something that was really different."
Ellen DeGeneres has a blank stare on her face while trying to process what she had just heard, and she wants more info. Kardashian explains the first tattoo he got for her was cute. Then the second one came, and so on.
"But that's what tattoo people do," Kardashian shares. "They get tattoos of what they do in their life." When DeGeneres interrupted and asked if Davidson has three tattoos of her, Kardashian replied, "A few. A little more than that." But the branding?
"He was like, 'I want something that's there that I can't get rid of,'" Kardashian says Davidson told her. "He's in the process of getting rid of his arm tats and neck tats. [He said,] 'I don't want to be able to get rid of it or cover it up and I just wanted it, like there, as a scar on me."
DeGeneres has to confirm that Davidson did, in fact, press a hot iron on to his body to brand his chest with Kardashian's first name. When Kardashian confirms, DeGeneres quips, "Well, you are a brand" while adding, "It's faster than sitting for a tattoo." Kardashian assures the audience, "It's so cute, guys."
Kardashian also reveals which of Davidson's tattoos for her is her favorite.
"I think my favorite one, it says here, 'My girl is a lawyer,' and that one's really cute," Kardashian says while pointing to her left shoulder.
DeGeneres also brings up Kardashian and Davidson becoming Instagram official and asked if doing so was something she felt she needed to do as the relationship blossomed.
"No," she says. "I have the cutest pictures of us and I wanna be like, ‘Oh my god, we’re so cute.’ But then I’m like, you know, don’t be so desperate. Don’t be posting so much. Just give a glimpse.’ I don’t know what the right thing to do is. I haven’t dated since before Instagram existed. So, I don’t know what the rules are.”
DeGeneres also notes Kardashian seems happy and more at ease. Kardashian agrees and offers insight into just how happy she is in her relationship with Davidson.
"I think it’s just in life, no matter what it is I encourage my friends and the people that I love to be happy, and I went for it," she says. "I was like, ‘You know what. I’m in my 40s. F**k it. Just go for it. Find your happiness. And like, I went for it and I took my time and I found it and it feels so good and I want to hold on to that forever.”
Kardashian appears relaxed during the interview despite a tense few weeks as she and Davidson continue to draw the ire of Kardashian's ex, Kanye "Ye" West.
As for how Kardashian feels about her boyfriend directly confronting West, a source tells ET, "Kim didn't want Pete to make things worse, but she was also glad that he stuck up for her. It is nice that Kim has Pete on her side publicly and privately."
