Kim sported a $23K Balenciaga coat that Kanye gifted to her before her Saturday Night Live hosting gig in October.
Kim sat on the floor of their hotel room with Pete lounging with his head on her lap. The lovebirds were blowing a kiss to each other in the sweet snap.
After Kim was spotted wearing the coat with Pete, Kanye took to his Instagram to reveal that he had gifted the glittery coat.
Interestingly enough, the 44-year-old rapper gave the coat to her before her SNL hosting gig, which was also where she met Pete.

‘I BOUGHT THIS COAT FOR KIM BEFORE SNL I THOUGHT IT WAS PARTICULARLY SPECIAL I HAVE FAITH THAT WE‘LL BE BACK TOGETHER,’ Kanye wrote.
He continued in the Valentine’s Day post: ‘WE HAVE A PUBLIC RELATIONSHIP BECAUSE WE ARE PUBLIC FIGURES SO TO THE PUBLIC AND TO THE PRESS SOMETIMES PEOPLE CALL ME CRAZY BUT TO BE IN LOVE IS TO BE CRAZY ABOUT SOMETHING AND I AM CRAZY ABOUT MY FAMILY HAPPY VALENTINES.’
Kim paired the grey glitter number with $1,700 metallic silver Balenciaga boots – the same boots she shared a photo of daughter North wearing back in 2016 – and likely another gift from Balenciaga superfan Kanye.
Rumors of a possible romance with Pete were first sparked when the two kissed during an early October Saturday Night Live skit as she played Princess Jasmine and he portrayed Aladdin, and while initial reports claimed they are just friends, fans believed something more significant was brewing.

Weeks later, she was spotted at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, California for the theme park’s annual Halloween event with a group of friends, including Pete, her sister Kourtney and Kourtney’s new fiancé, Travis Barker.
Pete and Kim reportedly enjoyed a private rooftop dinner at Campania in Staten Island earlier this month, followed by a group outing at club Zero Bond the following night.
Kim and Pete were seen sweetly holding hands in November while celebrating his birthday in Palm Springs, California, as seen in Dailymail.com exclusive photos.

Getting serious: Pete and Kim appeared on Saturday Night Live together in October
It is the first romantic partner for the reality star since she filed for divorce from estranged husband Kanye, 44, in February 2021.
Kanye, who has now legally changed his name to Ye, was briefly linked to model Irina Shayk, Instagram model Vinetria, 22 and actress Julia Fox, 33 and now Kim K clone/Instagram model Chaney Jones, 24.
Meanwhile, Pete was previously romantically involved with a slew of celebrities including Bridgerton star Phoebe Dynevor, Kate Beckinsale, and his former fiancé Ariana Grande.
Kim shares four children North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, two, with Kanye.
Kanye has been taking shots at Pete for months, with his latest being a disturbing depiction of the comedian being buried alive.
The shocking music video for his song Easy was released earlier this month, with a clay animation of Pete being buried alive.

Getting serious: Kim and Pete, 28, rang in the New Year together on a romantic getaway to the Bahamas; they relaxed at Baker’s Bay Golf & Ocean Club, a private resort community situated on the Great Guana Cay in the Abaco islands, 150 miles off the Florida coast
The rapper, who collaborated with The Game on the track, rapped: ‘God saved me from the crash, just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s a**.’
In the clay-animated clip, Kanye kidnapped Pete in the video and threw a bag over his head before tying him up and throwing him on the back of an all-terrain vehicle.
The Pete figure was then seen tied up in ropes and being dragged through the sand before being buried alive with his head positioned above the dirt.
West’s caricature grabbed a package of rose seeds and poured them over Davidson’s head, before watching the flowers bloom.
He then cut the flowers off Pete’s head and packed them into the back of a pick-up truck resembling the same vehicle he parked outside of Kim’s house on Valentine’s Day.
Kanye ended the clip with a direct message to the Saturday Night Live star: ‘Everyone lived happily ever after, except Skete’ before crossing out the name and writing ‘ you know who.
‘We havin’ the best divorce ever,’ he rapped in the song. ‘If we go to court, we’ll go to court together. Matter of fact, pick up your sis, we’ll go to Kourt’s together. I watched four kids for like five hours today.

In court docs linked to their divorce, Kardashian said that West’s ongoing jabs at Davidson over social media had ’caused her emotional distress.’
It’s not the first time Kanye has threatened Pete online as he’s regularly posted and then deleted attacks waged at his ex-wife’s boyfriend.

In February, Kanye shared a screengrab of Pete’s defunct Instagram account and took credit for driving him away from the social media platform.
‘Ran Skete off the gram,’ he wrote. ‘Tell your mother I changed your name for life.’
Kanye launched another blistering last month where he called the SNL star a ‘d***head’ and shared a screengrab of his private text to him.

He also vowed that Pete would never meet the children West shares with Kim, despite the fact that the comedian has been in a relationship with the SKIMS founder since October when she hosted SNL.
Kanye attempted to shame Pete with unfounded rumors that he once engaged in revenge porn by sharing intimate photos of himself and ex-fiancée Ariana Grande to rapper Mac Miller.
West shared a screenshot of the text he sent Davidson that read’…you as a man I’d never get in the way of your children. That’s a promise. How you guys go about raising your kids is your business and not mine. I do hope [some] day I can meet them and we can all be friends.’
He also shared a snap of Pete with his friend Machine Gun Kelly dressed in underwear for a Calvin Klein campaign, captioned: ‘No you will never meet my children.’

Kanye went on to share a screengrab of an internet rumor that claimed Ariana Grande sent photos of the pair to her ex Mac Miller before his 2018 death. West captioned the shot: ‘no comment.’
Last month, Kanye acknowledged his social media posts came off as harassing Kardashian, after he shared text messages with her saying that his previous torrent of posts were putting Pete in danger.
‘I know sharing screen shots was jarring and came off as harassing Kim,’ West wrote on Instagram. ‘I take accountability.’
In the texts, Kim told Kanye he was ‘creating a dangerous and scary environment and someone will hurt Pete and this will be all your fault,’ later adding, ‘There are dangerous people out there and this is scary and it doesn’t have to be.’
Kanye replied to Kim via text, ‘I will always do everything to protect you and our family forever. And I listened to you and told everyone to make sure nothing physical happens to Skete.’

In early March, Kim was legally declared single by a Los Angeles judge in the star’s contentious divorce from Kanye.
The judge granted her request to be declared legally single immediately and settle custody and money issues at a later date.
The legal action is called bifurcation, which Kanye had opposed.
Judge Steve Cochran granted her request to have her maiden name restored, and he denied West’s motion to prevent Kardashian from transferring assets out of trusts set up during the marriage.
The feuding couple, both billionaires, had their high powered attorneys in court Wednesday: Laura Wasser for Kardashian and Samantha Spector for West. Spector was only appointed last night after West fired his previous lawyer.
Kim appeared by video but Kanye did not appear in any form.
Judge Cochran began the hearing by asking Kardashian how her four children by the hip hop star and producer are doing.
‘Everybody is doing OK,’ she responded.
Asked by the judge if she was ‘showering her children with affection,’ she replied, ‘Absolutely.’
She added, ‘We’re having so much fun.’
After asking Kim to raise her right hand to be sworn in, Judge Cochran asked her a series of five questions:
Is everything true in your petition? ‘Yes,’ she replied.
Did you live in Los Angeles at least six months prior to filing for divorce? ‘Yes.’
Is your marriage irretrievably broken? ‘Yes.’
Will counseling save your marriage? ‘No.’
Is it your desire to be granted single status? ‘Yes.’
With a grin, the judge told Kim it was his practice to see photos of children involved in cases before his court.
But in this case, he added, he did not ask to see pictures, ‘to protect the children’s privacy. Is that OK with you?
‘Yes your honor, thank you,’ she responded with a smile.
Wasser told the court that she ‘didn’t believe there would be any disagreements’ between the celebrity couple over custody of their kids.
The way they were: Judge Cochran began the hearing by asking Kardashian how her four children by the hip hop star and producer are doing
But she and West’s attorney, Spector, hit roadblocks on two other issues.
The first was Kanye request to prevent Kim from transferring assets out of any trust — a request Kim has fired back at due to their existing prenup, which already keeps their trusts and assets separate.
Wasser told the court that Kim ‘uses these trusts for her business and to freeze her assets would…create problems. It would prevent her from doing business.’
The second point of dispute was West’s request for Kim to ‘waive marital privilege.’ Waiving marital privilege would means all of their communication would no longer be private and instead would be part of the court record.
Wasser branded the request ‘unprecedented’ and accused West of trying ‘to prevent or make it difficult for Ms. Kardashian to remarry’ in the future.
Judge Cochran denied Kanye’s attempt to stop Kim from taking money out of her trusts and he also denied the rapper’s request for her to waive marital privilege, telling the court, ‘The law provides no support for that condition.’
The judge scheduled August 5 for a status and pretrial hearing to hear arguments from both sides about financial and child custody issues still to be settled.
