Kaia Gerber’s parents hope Kaia’s romance with Pete Davidson ‘fizzles out’

Pete Davidson and Kaia Gerber attend a wedding in Miami!

Kaia Gerber turned 18 years old in September. Within the next month, Kaia and Pete Davidson became a couple. He and Margaret Qualley split and he moved on quickly to Kaia, and they’ve been loved up ever since, even traveling to Miami together to attend the wedding of one of her friends. The Miami trip was the most we ever saw of them as a couple – they got pap’d the entire time they were in Miami, from their poolside antics to their arrival at the wedding venue. So… what do Kaia’s parents think about all of this, especially as it happened just seconds after Kaia turned 18? Turns out, they’re not pleased.

“Woke up in Paris,” Kaia Gerber captioned an Instagram photo — showing her body wrapped in nothing but a bedsheet in a chic hotel room — last week. Many on Instagram commented on how much she resembled her mom, to which Cindy Crawford simply responded, “Ha!” But what wasn’t discussed was a certain person missing from the camera’s lens — Kaia’s current boyfriend Pete Davidson.

Indeed, the 18-year-old’s new beau, “Saturday Night Live” lady’s man Davidson, 25, also didn’t show up when she presented at the British Fashion Awards in London. Never mind that he’s barely had screen time on “SNL” this season, or that he has a history of accompanying his girlfriends to overseas work events, such as when he was the plus-one of “Once Upon a Time in . . . Hollywood” actress Margaret Qualley at a Venice film premiere this past summer.

It seems that Kaia’s A-list parents might just be getting their holiday wish.

“I think they’re just hoping this could all fizzle out,” said a source close to the family. “[Kaia’s] traveling and working constantly — how serious can [she and Davidson] get?”

Cindy and her entrepreneur husband Rande Gerber — who is as well known for his BFF friendship with George Clooney as his famous marriage — “are very hands-on” parents to Kaia and her brother Presley, 20, said another family insider. Friends told The Post that the clan spent Thanksgiving together in Europe before Kaia’s work duties.

Asked if Cindy and Rande are concerned about photos of their baby girl wrapped around Hollywood’s latest Lothario — Davidson was linked to Qualley, Ariana Grande and Kate Beckinsale in the space of a year — the source close to the family said: “I don’t think they’re that worried about it because she’s only 18. Kaia can be slightly naive. But she’s a smart girl with a good head on her shoulders and a family who watches out for her.”

Yeah… I don’t know. I’ve always thought Cindy Crawford mishandled her daughter’s entrance into the modeling world, and I also think Cindy pushed Kaia into it, like it was presented as Kaia’s only career option. And now that Kaia is old enough to make her own decisions about who she dates and where she lives (Kaia moved to New York this year), Cindy and Rande are not able to exert as much control over their daughter. That being said, if they want Pete and Kaia to phase each other out, they’re doing the right thing by not stressing about it and not getting in Kaia’s face about it – at that age, that would be the worst move. Chances are, Pete really will move on anyway, quite honestly.

    Okay…now she REALLY IS starting to look like her Mama….

    • kelleybelle says:

      That IS her mama. That’s Cindy in Paris, not Kaia.

      • Lou says:

        Yep. Page Six missed the point why Cindy commented that on the picture.

      • Amy Too says:

        I was wondering why the photo looked so grainy. As someone who doesn’t follow her or really know what she looks like, my tinfoil theory was that Pete took the photo and he’s not a professional Instagram photographer guy so it was all grainy. Your explanation makes much more sense.

    • Sayrah says:

      I thought the same. It’s really obvious in the last pic on the bed. Something about her eyes is the only real difference I can see and she’s skinnier than Cindy was in the 90s.

  2. Ravensdaughter says:

    Two words: BIRTH CONTROL!!!

  3. ItReallyIsYou,NotMe says:

    I don’t get the impression that Kaia was pushed into modeling, but more that Cindy agreed to use her connections/name when Kaia expressed an interest. In any event, I would play this exactly the same way if my young adult child was involved with someone like Pete Davidson. I have empathy for his depression and anxiety, but I think his constant jumping between serious relationships is a sign that he is NOT meaningfully addressing his mental health issues and, really, what parent wants their child to get into a relationship with someone who is not treating their serious mental illness?

    • hunter says:

      you only have to look at him to know he’s a serious drug addict

    • Missskitttin says:

      But if you had a kid that age you also know that high school romances last no longer than one term or a quarter at best lol. So no worries. It will be over soon.

  4. Basi says:

    Call me crazy but that looks like an old photo of Cindy. Kaia’s hair is short.

  5. P says:

    Im not her mom, but even I hope that thing between them ends. What do these women see in that guy?

  6. smcollins says:

    I know 18 is the magic number that makes someone *legally* an adult, but c’mon…they’re still a teenager, legally an adult or not. And she seems like such a young 18, trying so hard to look so grown up.

  7. Marjorie says:

    Or, she could be in college figuring out what her interests are.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yeah, I feel like she jumped into all the modeling stuff too young. I don’t know if her parents pushed her, or just encouraged her, but if I were them I would have insisted on her at least finishing high school, and modeling during the summer if she really wanted to do it.

    • MaryContrary says:

      This. Ugh. I do not understand why her parents encouraged or allowed this to begin with. She’s a pretty girl and she could still model in 4 years. Cindy’s connections aren’t going anywhere.

  8. Originaltessa says:

    It will. She’s 18, and he seems to be playing the field. It won’t last long past the holidays.

  9. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I think someone needs to do a documentary on him. Maybe it’ll help me understand lol.

  10. S808 says:

    Yeah this won’t last at all. I doubt either one of them are thinking long term. Glad they know not to jump down her thought about it cause when I was 18 my mom not liking something I was doing only made me want to do it more lol

  11. Leriel says:

    I guess Cindy overplayed herself with this little pr romance, lol. Be careful what you wish for.

  12. JanetFerber says:

    If I were her, I’d have picked a much hotter guy. Although I’ve never been one, looking back, I’d have liked a short stint as a superficial airhead dallying with hot guys. Oh well.

  13. It’sjustblanche says:

    The best thing about that picture is that she has a book in her lap. I mean think about it. An actual book in a model’s lap.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Yeah, that’s Cindy. She’s always been a big reader. Not sure if her daughter is the same, but it’s likely.

  14. Trish-a says:

    Its Cindy in the picture, hence the HA!

  15. pyritedigger says:

    He must be spectacular in the sack, is all I got. Maybe these girls mostly date dudes who don’t care about their pleasure, and maybe Pete’s different in that way. She’s 18, he’s 25. They’re both famous. It’s not gross or anything.

    • Ashley G says:

      Ariana said he’s 10 inches. That’s enough to make girls look in his direction. It was enough to make me give my boyfriend a chance and I wouldn’t have otherwise because he’s bald. Im superficial like that. And if he treats them like a princess it’s enough to secure him some time with them. Plus funny is sexy. If he is funny. I’ve never seen his work

    • Jas says:

      Many have pushed the “shiny penny” theory, that Ariana made him dateable. It is true that he wasn’t a tabloid fixture before her.

  16. Cami says:

    He has BPD so it probably will. They better hope so anyway.

  17. Jas says:

    Unbelievable that the source is telling us a teenager can be “slightly naive”….REALLY?

    I also think her parents are totally game for her getting this publicity, because they’re obviously not going to last. But this type of publicity really isn’t doing her as many favors as they probably hope.

  18. Starkille says:

    I absolutely loathe that all the celebuspawn have ruined Reformation now (her dress in the top pic, K. Jenner’s newsprint trousers). That’s all I’ve got. Davidson is repulsive, I don’t care if he is endowed with 10 feet that also does the laundry and the shopping, I wouldn’t get within ten metres of him,

  19. SM says:

    I think it may be a little too late for hope of “fizzle out soon enough”, I am sure Pete has passed a number of stds already

  20. clairej says:

    Cindy has totally been projecting with Kaia. Hate that they are trying so hard to make everyone think she is Cindy’s twin. I have come round to her as a catwalk model, but don’t enjoy her in print.
