Stewart was a guest of Dailymail at the dinner held in April and ran into Davidson who was dating Kim Kardashian at the time.
The three were photographed together, with Stewart innocently holding hands with the King of Staten Island star.
It didn't take long for memes suggesting Stewart and Davidson were romantically linked to circulate online now that Davidson and Kardashian broke up.
When Dailymail caught up with Stewart at the opening of her restaurant The Bedford in Las Vegas, they asked if Davidson was her next celebrity boyfriend.
The homemaking guru and retail businesswoman responded:
"Pete Davidson is like the son I never had."
"He is a charming boy who is finding his way," she said, adding, "I've invited him to come on my podcast and I look forward to hearing what he has to say."
Meanwhile, this is what the internet had to say about Stewart's response to the memes.
The Bedford by Martha Stewart opened at Paris Las Vegas on Saturday.
The restaurant is inspired by Stewart's 1920s farmhouse in Bedford, New York and features a menu of her favorite dishes she's perfected over the years and makes at home.
It's no secret Stewart adores Davidson.
After seeing him at the WHCA dinner earlier this year, she posted a video of a young Davidson at the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber, where they met for the first time.
Stewart said she met Davidson seven years ago when he was a "young upstart" and has now grown up and is "squiring gorgeous women around and appearing everywhere."
After nine months of dating, Davidson and Kardashian split–likely due to their drifting apart from their constantly conflicting schedules.
Prior to dating the billionaire and reality star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Davidson was engaged to pop star Ariana Grande in 2018.
When they called off their engagement later that year, he had brief flings with other women–including actresses Kate Beckinsale, Phoebe Dynevor, Margaret Qualley, and model Kaia Gerber among others.
