While Phoebe Dynevor and Pete Davidson are definitely one of the more unexpected celebrity romances of 2021, they're already proving to be serious couple goals. Here's a look back on what we know so far about Phoebe and Pete's dating history, starting with the most recent update:

7th May 2021:

Pete Davidson is pretty well known for his relationships with high profile celebrities, from Ariana Grande to Kate Beckinsale. And now that he and Phoebe Dynevor has been together a few months he revealed the one thing that's key to all his relationships.

"I am just very, very honest," he told The Breakfast Club. "I think what a lot of people do is they try to put on — not even their best self — but like, almost a version of themself that they would like to be. And then eventually, that will unravel, you know?

"So, I just, off the top, I'm like, 'Hey, I'm nuts. Here's all my issues, here's what I do, here's the therapists. This is what happens.' And that can either be a lot for someone or they could be like, 'Cool, that was really refreshingly honest.' Or, sometimes it can be a little intense and weird and people can't handle that stuff," he added.

He also explained that he isn't into "playing any of the games" and values communication in his relationships.

"... if I'm into you, I'm really into you. It just creates this whole anxiety and a lot of stress, and there's enough of that going on... It should be so easy. It should just be like, 'Hey, there's something wrong today.' 'Hey, I'm really happy today.' Communication is really key."

Here's the rest of Phoebe and Pete's relationship timeline:

9th February 2021: Phoebe visited New York, where Pete lives, in February. She posted photos of Brooklyn to Instagram with the caption, “Grateful I got to be here for a hot sec,” adding a heart emoji. Sources later claim she met Pete at an afterparty following Bridgerton co-star Rege-Jean Page hosting Saturday Night Live, which would make sense considering that's where Pete works.

25 March 2021: Page Six reports that Pete and Phoebe were spotted “holding hands and hugging each other” in Caverswall, Staffordshire by a 14-year-old girl who said, "they walked past our house and I recognised him immediately … I hadn’t seen anything written about Pete being in a relationship with Phoebe, but once I saw them together I thought, ‘Maybe they are?’” The fan then asked for a selfie with Pete, telling Page Six:

“He seemed quite happy and didn’t mind me taking a picture with him. I didn’t ask for a picture with Phoebe because at the time I didn’t know who she was. My sister, who also saw them but didn’t come with me to catch up with them, told me when I got back home.”
