The Good American founder “was one of the first to admit that she thought Kim’s infatuation with Pete was a passing phase.

As for Kardashian-Jenner matriarch, Kris Jenner, she’s also Team Pete. “Kris one hundred percent approves of Kim’s relationship with Pete,” a separate source told In Touch. “She has known Pete for years, trusts him and has even invited him to their Christmas festivities.”

However, when they can’t be together physically, “Kim and Pete are in constant communication,” a source told Us Weekly in August 2022. Though the different “time zones and filming call times make talking difficult,” the insider noted that they “send each other love notes while the other is sleeping and FaceTime whenever their schedules link up.”
“The distance has been hard, but even communicating long-distance is exciting for them,” the source added, noting that the pair are “still very smitten with each other and can’t wait until they’re in the same place again.”
