The Truth About Kate Beckinsale's Much Younger Boyfriend

After divorcing producer and director Len Wiseman in 2016 after 12 years of marriage, Kate Beckinsale embarked on an exciting dating journey. The Underworld star's first paramour was actor Matt Rife, who she was linked to in June 2017. "She really seems to like him. She refers to him as an old soul," a source told People about their 22-year age gap. "The age difference doesn't matter to her." The pair broke up after two months and seemingly reconciled for a brief second in September 2018, per People.

Next up? Comedian Jack Whitehall, who she was spotted kissing in November 2018, just a year after Whitehall split from longtime girlfriend Gemma Chan. "Kate had a huge smile on her face at several moments and she looked really happy," a source told E! News about the outing. "It was definitely romantic."

Whatever was going on with Whitehall didn't lead anywhere, and Beckinsale then moved on with Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson in January 2019. The comedian was fresh off his high-profile breakup from Ariana Grande, although you couldn't tell from all the paparazzi shots of PDA between him and the actor. However, the relationship fizzled in April 2019, with a source telling Entertainment Tonight, "They're still friendly."

As for Beckinsale's latest paramour? Look no further than Canadian musician Goody Grace, who is a year older than her 21-year-old daughter, Lily Sheen. The two were spotted holding hands in April 2020 during an outing in Los Angeles.

Goody Grace is linked to Pete Davidson

Kate Beckinsale, 46, went for a romantic walk with Goody Grace, 22, in Los Angeles on April 12, 2020, as photos published by the Daily Mail reveal. The pair — who were spotted holding hands during the outing — were first linked together in January 2020, and the actor has reportedly left comments on the singer's Instagram posts, per Us Weekly

It's not clear whether Beckinsale and Grace are official, although it's obvious the 20-something is a rising star in the music industry. Case in point: Grace collaborated with Blink-182 for his 2019 single, "Scumbag," and has toured with the likes of Hoodie Allen. "Since moving to Los Angeles in 2014 at just 17, the singer, songwriter, and producer went from couch surfing to headlining sold-out gigs and averaging 833K monthly listeners on Spotify by January 2018," his bio on Note-Store reads.

Interestingly enough, it's Grace's success in the music industry that connects him to Beckinsale's ex, Pete Davidson. "He [Grace] performed with the Saturday Night Live star's best friend Machine Gun Kelly and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker at a concert in Los Angeles in December 2019," Us Weekly reported. Both Grace and MGK also appear rapper Mod Sun's upcoming single "Stay Away."

Considering Davidson just ended a relationship with model Kaia Gerber, we're not sure he's bothered by this new connection, but who truly knows.
