Aside from paparazzi photos and long-swirling rumors, fans were kept in the dark about whether or not the two were together until they began making public references to each other toward the end of last year.

Then, in April, Kim explained on an episode of Hoda Kotb’s Making Space podcast why she’d been choosing to keep much of her and Pete’s relationship quiet.

“I do think that I am holding, you know, a little bit more close to my heart on certain aspects of my relationship with Pete,” she said. “It feels good just to know that, like, we have this connection and we have our little bubble of a relationship world that we live in that not a lot of people know about.”

Kim and Kanye had been married for almost seven years before she filed for porce from him last February, citing “irreconcilable differences.” Though the coparents seem amicable right now, Ye expressed his disdain toward both Kim and Pete for months in a brutal Instagram feud that unfolded earlier this year.

On Tuesday’s episode of Today, hosts Hoda and Samantha discussed Kim’s first relationship in the spotlight since her and Ye’s porce, immediately asking how she navigated introducing Pete to her children.

“How do you decide when to introduce your kids [or] how much to share with your kids when you have a new man in your life?” Hoda asked.

In response, the mogul candidly revealed that she received words of advice from her elder sister, Kourtney Kardashian, who shares three kids with ex-boyfriend, Scott Disick.

“I consulted with a few therapists and friends that had been through it,” Kim said.

Kim pulged further, “I definitely wanted to wait six months. That was the marker,” before adding, “Different things work for different people, but you just have to do what feels right and try to be as respectful and cautious as possible.”

Well, it certainly appears that Pete and Kim’s kids have a great relationship now, as he’s recently been pictured out with both North and Saint on two separate occasions.

But upon seeing the adorable photos of Pete hanging out with Kim’s kids, some fans were quickly reminded of Kanye, who had previously vowed that the comic would never meet the little ones amid their heated Instagram feud.

As he slammed Pete over a series of now-deleted posts, Ye shared a private text he’d received from the comedian back in February reassuring the rapper that he wasn’t getting involved with his and Kim’s children.

“I’d never get [in the] way of your children,” Pete’s text read. “[That’s] a promise. How you guys [go about] raising your kids is [your business] and not mine. I do [hope one] day I can meet them and [we can] all be friends.”

Rejecting Pete’s olive branch, Ye made the exchange public alongside the Instagram caption: “NO YOU WILL NEVER MEET MY CHILDREN.”

However, it looks like things between Kim and Kanye are currently much more amicable, with the reality star revealing on Today that the exes recently spent Father’s Day together with their kids.

Today

“We had Father’s Day at the house. The kids spent the day with him and then we had a big Father’s Day dinner and North cooked,” Kim said, adding that “everything is going good” between herself and Ye.

“Of course, I wanted to honor and respect the amazing fathers, the men in my life who have raised me and are raising my children,” she added, referring to the sweet Instagram tribute she shared on Sunday, praising Kanye.
