Watch: Pete Davidson Cuddles a 2-Month-Old Baby (CUTENESS Overload)

Does Pete Davidson need to spend his next Saturday night at the dentist?

The SNL comedian packed on the cuteness overload on Friday, Jan. 28, when he met friend John Mulaney's 2-month-old son Malcolm and gave him plenty of cuddles. John posted video footage of the adorable meeting on his Instagram Story, but eagle-eyed fans noticed that Pete debuted a brand new look. 

The King of Staten Island actor showed off what appeared to be a chipped front tooth as he smiled and cooed over John's little one.

Fans immediately began to speculate about what went down. One said, "As someone who spends a lot of time with a very strong baby, I'm just saying there's a nonzero chance the baby did that to Pete Davidson's tooth." Another asked, "sir what the hell happened??"

One user even wanted him to address the incident on an upcoming episode, tweeting, "hello @nbcsnl, please let Pete Davidson tell us how he chipped his tooth. As someone who has done it twice, there is alway[s] a good story."

So, what's the real reason behind Pete's look, you may ask? Well, according to a source, there was no permanent damage done. The insider tells E! News that Pete didn't actually crack his real tooth, explaining, "He had it for a project. It's fake."

Maybe not such a good story after all?


Regardless, he definitely fooled us! And it's not the first time we've been tricked by an apparent celebrity transformation that turned out to be temporary. Adam Levine recently revealed a giant rose tattoo on his face that was actually fake, and Chrishell Stause similarly set the record straight after debuting a brunette makeover that ended up being a wig. 

Then, of course, there was the time Kourtney Kardashian became tattoo twins with Travis Barker, but it was really just an artsy edit. 

For now, we'll have to keep our eyes peeled for Pete's upcoming project featuring his phony dental damage.
