So strong, in fact, that the Saturday Night Live star is going above and beyond to show his affection for the SKIMS mogul. As Kim, 41, revealed on the March 16 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Pete, 28, has multiple tattoos dedicated to her.
When host Ellen DeGeneres asked about recent speculation claiming Pete got her name inked on his chest, Kim confirmed "he has a few tattoos, a few cute ones." However, Kim clarified the "KIM" tribute isn't a tattoo, "It's actually a branding."
"Let me explain it," she continued. "He wanted to do something that was really different. First tattoo he got, I was like, 'Oh, so cute, thank you! Oh my god!' Second, whatever, I'm like, 'Oh, that's so cute.' But that's what tattoo people do, right? They get tattoos of what's going on in their life."
While Pete has a few tattoos in honor of Kim, her "favorite" is one that reads, "My girl is a lawyer." As Kim, who passed California's baby bar exam last year, told Ellen, "That one's really cute."
Ellen then circled back to Pete's "branding," asking if an "iron thing went onto his body" to brand Kim's name, which she confirmed.
"Yes...I just think he was like, 'I want something that's there that I can't, you know, get rid of my tattoos,'" Kim said. "He's in the process of getting rid of his arm tats and his neck tats. So he's like, 'I don't want to be able to get rid of it or cover it up and I just wanted it there as like a scar on me.'"
During her chat with Ellen, Kim—who shares four kids with ex Kanye—also addressed why she recently decided to go Instagram official with the comedian. "I guess it's not official until you post," Kim joked. "I have the cutest pictures of us and I want to be like, 'Oh my god, we're so cute!' But then I'm like, 'Don't be so desperate, don't be posting so much, just give a glimpse.'"
"I don't know what the right thing to do is," she admitted. "I haven't dated since before Instagram existed, so I don't know what the rules are."
Of this chapter in her life, Kim said it "feels good."
"I think it's just in life, like no matter what it is, I encourage my friends and the people that I love just to be happy," she continued. "And I went for it, I was like, 'You know what, I'm in my 40s, f--k it...just go for it, find your happiness.' And I went for it and I took my time and I found it and it feels so good and I want to hold onto that forever."
