Pete Davidson’s Triumphant Return to Saturday Night Live
Pete Davidson, known for his appearances on “Saturday Night Live,” recently made a spectacular comeback on the show. One of his highlights was a viral parody of Barbie’s “I’m Just Ken” that resonated with viewers. To make the occasion even more special, Davidson brought his family along for support, including his mother, Amy, whom viewers have heard about since his debut on SNL. In celebration of her son’s hosting debut, Amy shared throwback photos from his first season and snapshots from his recent hosting gig.
A Proud Mother’s Display of Pride
Amy Davidson, being a devoted mother of two, couldn’t contain her pride over her son’s success as an SNL host. She took to Instagram to commemorate the special moment, sharing a slideshow of photos showcasing Pete’s growth from a featured SNL player to a well-known film, TV, and stand-up veteran. The photos also captured the warm welcome he received upon his return to the iconic 30 Rockefeller Plaza NBC studio.
A Heartfelt Gesture of Appreciation
This heartwarming post from Amy Davidson should come as no surprise, as she has always been her son’s biggest supporter. The photos truly highlight Pete’s journey and the immense appreciation the cast and crew had for his return. It is evident that they eagerly anticipated his comeback after his initial hosting debut was canceled due to the writers’ strike. The flower initials and bouquets showcased their admiration for the SNL alum, creating a touching display of support.
A Fun-filled Season Premiere
Amy’s message not only conveyed her love and support for Pete but also capped off a joyful Season 49 premiere for the iconic late-night institution, SNL. The anticipation for Pete Davidson’s return extended beyond the cast and crew. Series executive producer, Lorne Michaels, even texted and playfully teased the comedian about hosting the sketch comedy series. Despite leaving the show after Season 47, Pete’s absence was deeply felt by fans and colleagues alike.
A Year of Achievements for Pete Davidson
In addition to his hosting job on SNL, Pete Davidson has been making headlines with his love life. Following his breakup with Chase Sui Wonders, the comedian has been romantically linked to actress and model Madelyn Cline. Reports suggest that she sat with Davidson’s family during the show and joined him at the afterparty later that night. On a lighter note, his sketch “I’m Just Pete” hilariously referenced Progressive spokeswoman Flo, who responded playfully to the faux speculation that she and Davidson were dating.
With big roles in movies like “Dumb Money” and “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts,” Pete Davidson’s return to SNL has solidified his success in 2023. However, his mother’s sweet post about his third hosting gig serves as the perfect icing on the cake.
