Pete Davidson’s Mother, Amy, Is His Biggest Fan: “Thank You For Making Me a Mum”
Pete Davidson is just as proud of his mum as she is of him. Since making his “Saturday Night Live” debut in 2014, the comedian has spoken out about his childhood on numerous occasions and has included his mom, Amy Waters Davidson, in episodes of “SNL” among other things. Pete was born on on Nov. 16, 1993 to Amy, a school nurse, and Scott Davidson, a New York City firefighter who died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks when the comedian was just 7 years old.
The loss of his dad hit Pete hard, and his mom did everything she could to make sure he was happy. “It was sad how sad he was growing up,” Amy told the New York Times in an October 2015 interview while discussing how Pete began pursuing comedy as a young teen. “He had a tough time growing up without a dad – I wanted him to be happy, and this made him really, really happy.”
Amy has been a constant in Pete’s life no matter how big his success has gotten. In fact, his 2020 film “The King of Staten Island” was loosely based on his real life, with Pete previously telling CBS News, “I just always wanted to show where I’m coming from. Pretty much like how a tragedy affects a family. And I think, like, there hasn’t been many of those movies that are, like, really honest and transparent.”
