Things are heating up between new couple Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson, who stepped out for a dinner date recently.

The couple walked hand in hand after dining at Italian restaurant Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica, California – fans also noticed what resembled a hickey on the Saturday Night Live actor's neck.

A source tells People the two "were both in a great mood". "They sat very close to each other, and Kim kept giggling," the insider said.

Pete "was very pleasant and ordered a lot of food for them". "They shared several pasta dishes. He had his arm around Kim, and they were very flirty. You could tell that Kim had the best time. They very much acted like a couple."

A second source tells E! News following the outing: "They are really happy and seeing where it goes."

The mom-of-four is "trying to not make a big deal about it but is super into him".

"Kim is smitten over him and it's very exciting to her."

Meanwhile, Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, has vowed during a visit to the LA Mission to "restore" his family with his friendly ex, Kim Kardashian.

"This morning I felt so blessed to wake up, to work out and be able to drive to my house and see my wife and my kids," he said.

He's previously declared the reality star is still technically his wife. "Ain't no paperwork," he said.

"That's right. I said my wife and my children, and I want everyone to pray for my family," he said.

Who's going to tell him?
