Pete Davidson’s Mom Honours Late Spouse on 9/11 Anniversary

Pete Davidson’s mother, Amy, is commemorating her late husband, Scott, who passed away on 9/11, with a heartfelt message.

On Monday, the mother of the Saturday Night Live alum posted several nostalgic pictures of Scott, a firefighter from New York City who lost his life in the 2001 terrorist attacks, marking the 22nd anniversary of the tragic event.

“Happiest days of my life and I didn’t know it ” she wrote in the post on Instagram. “Never forget and always be grateful”.

The photo collection displayed Amy and Scott embracing each other, a young Pete experimenting with his dad’s fire-fighting equipment, and his sister Casey grinning while nestled in her father’s embrace.

In March, Pete, currently 29, recounted the way in which he was informed about his father’s passing during the 9/11 incidents.

“My dad told me he was going to pick me up from school on 9/11. I got picked up by my mom,” he said on Real Ones podcast. “She didn’t tell me what was going on for like, three days”.

She continually reassured me, ‘Dad’s at work,’ ‘He’s returning home,’ and so on. I was completely oblivious”, he continued.

The comedian, who was only seven years old during that period, revealed that his mother “grounded” him from viewing television, possibly to shield him from the media depiction of the attacks.

He further stated, “Then one night, I turned on the TV and I just saw my dad on the TV. I was like, ‘Oh, OK.’ And they were like, these are all the firemen that are, like, dead”.

“It was weird because we didn’t know he was dead for, like, three weeks”, he explained. “They were finding people, you know? They were pulling people out of s—, and there was just some sort of hope. Like, it was just up and down and nobody knew how to deal with it”.

Both Pete and his sister Casey have in previous times honored their dad on subsequent anniversaries of the incidents.

“This year more than ever I wish you could be here. We miss you, we celebrate you, and we remember you every day. Proud to be your caseygirl “, Casey shared in a post in 2022, accompanied by a set of photographs showcasing the family’s late patriarch.

Back in 2015, the performer published a series of messages on Twitter commemorating his dad, mingled with humour and gratitude towards friends who expressed their sympathies on that day, stating, “I truly appreciate it. I consider myself fortunate.”

He concluded his note with a serious message, posting, “All jokes aside. There’s not a day that goes by where I don’t think of u. Ur my hero. Cant wait to see u again someday”.
