PETE Davidson has been spotted with an unexpected plus one after his Saturday Night Live hosting debut.
Pete ditched the SNL Season 49 premiere for an afterparty with his new girlfriend, Madelyn Cline, 25.

Pete, 29, and the Outer Banks actress were spotted together in New York City’s Chelsea area after his big gig on Saturday.
The comedian – straight off his SNL return – looked casual in a tan-and-gray tracksuit with a matching baseball cap.
Madelyn donned a black turtleneck and a matching pair of sweatpants.
She accessorized with delicate gold jewelry and a black Kate Spade handbag.
At one point, the pair held hands as they rushed to a vehicle, enjoying the after-hours of Pete’s hosting stint.
They reportedly hit Saturday Night Live’s afterparty at Catch Steak restaurant.
Ozark actress Sofia Hublitz also joined them.
“Pete and Madelyn are dating,” a source told Us. “They spent the night together at the Beverly Hills Hotel and then had breakfast together there the next morning.
“They were really low-key and kept things casual, wearing baseball hats.”
FANS REACT TO PETE’S NEW FLAME
Fans were stunned as the cozy snaps circulated on X.
One person reacted: “MADELYN CLINE AND PETE DAVIDSON??????”
Another wrote: “I really thought Pete and Madelyn was a joke omg….”
A third wrote: “so Madelyn and Pete are actually a thing.”
She last dated her Outer Banks co-star Chase Stokes for a year before they broke up in November 2021.
Pete, who rose to fame as a cast member on SNL, returned as host while rapper Ice Spice, 23, was the live act.
Instead of a skit before the opening credits rolled, Pete decided to address the Israel/Palestine conflict unflinchingly.
He began by joking: “I know what you’re thinking: Who better to comment than Pete Davidson?
He further and more seriously continued: “When I was seven years old, my dad was killed in a terrorist attack.”
Voice trembling, Pete continued: “I saw what that’s like. I saw so many terrible pictures this week of children suffering.”
“I saw so many terrible pictures this week. Children suffering, Israeli children and Palestinian children. It took me back to a horrible place.
No one in this world deserves to suffer like that, especially not kids.”
He then shared a sweet anecdote about how comedy unexpectedly saved him in his own time of pain as a kid via an Eddie Murphy DVD his mom accidentally bought when he was eight.
Pete’s father was a firefighter with the New York City Fire Department at the time of the September 11 attacks, tragically aged just 33.
Pete then did a more standard set to open the variety show after the opening credits.
Fans were extremely moved by Pete’s words, and his unexpected monologue was praised across the internet.
Speaking of surprising appearances, meanwhile, Taylor Swift (who dropped in and introduced Ice Spice) and Travis Kelce were spotted exiting the show holding hands.
