Pete Davidson's Rumored Girlfriend Madelyn Cline Supports Him in 'Saturday Night Live' Audience

Cline was also spotted hanging out with the comedian at the 'SNL' after-party in Chelsea.

Pete Davidson was feeling the love on Saturday. The 29-year-old comic returned to Saturday Night Live to host the season 49 premiere, and got some support from both his mom, and his rumored girlfriend, Madelyn Cline.

Davidson took the stage inside the iconic Studio 8H, and delivered both an impassioned cold open and memorable monologue to kick off the show -- all while getting cheered on by the 25-year-old Outer Banks star.

A source tells ET, "Things between Madelyn and Pete seem to be getting more serious. Madelyn sat in the audience next to Pete's family while he hosted SNL last night."

"She looked comfortable with them and seemed happy to be there and proud of him," the source adds.

After the show, Davidson and Cline hit up the SNL after-party, held at Catch Steakhouse in the Meatpacking District in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.

An eyewitness told ET that Davidson and Cline were among many celebs who came out for the afterparty -- alongside Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce, who made cameos in the season premiere -- and that "everyone was in a great mood and had a great time."

Davidson and Cline were also photographed leaving the after-party later in the evening, where the comedian was spotted wearing the UGG Classic Ultra Mini Boot.

Us Weekly was first to report Davidson's rumored romance with Outer Banks star Madelyn Cline in September 2023, sharing that the pair "spent the night together at the Beverly Hills Hotel and then had a breakfast together there the next morning."

According to the outlet, Davidson and Cline were "really low-key and kept things casual, wearing baseball hats." 

A source told ET that same month that the couple were in fact dating and had recently spent a whirlwind 24 hours together in Las Vegas. "They have been hanging out and spending time together when they can and really like each other," the source said.
