Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale was spotted having dinner at Nobu in Malibu on Tuesday evening with her mom Judy Loe, step-father Roy Battersby and new boyfriend Pete Davidson.

The outing suggests that the couple’s relationship is more than just a flirtatious fling. Tuesday marked the 40th anniversary of Beckinsale’s father’s death; actor Richard Beckinsale died of a heart attack in 1979 at the age of 31.

The two have become extremely close over the past couple of weeks and Kate is “extremely happy with him,”  a source close to the actress recently told People.

Earlier on in the day, Kate made a sweet tribute to her late father Richard Beckinsale, an actor who died suddenly at 31 from a massive heart attack.

Kate was just 5 years old. “40 years is a lot of missing. Thank you so much to everyone who has been kind. Lots of love xx,” she wrote on her Instagram account alongside multiple pictures of her dad playing different roles.

She also included sweet snaps of her as a baby and a young child with her parents.

Davidson recently addressed his new girlfriend on the “Weekend Update” sketch of SNL, clapping back at criticisms of the pair’s 20-year age difference.
