Chris Evans Tied the Knot With Alba Baptista
Chris Evans, known for his role in "Captain America: The First Avenger," has tied the knot with Alba Baptista. The couple got married in an intimate ceremony at their home in Massachusetts over the weekend. The wedding was kept very private, with guests required to sign nondisclosure agreements (NDAs) and surrender their phones.
The wedding was described as "beautiful," and the guest list included close family and friends. Among the attendees were some of Evans' Marvel co-stars like Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, and Jeremy Renner. Additionally, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, along with Jamie Chung and Bryan Greenberg, were also present at the celebration.
The actor from "Avengers" and the Luso-Brazilian actress initially sparked romance rumors in November 2022. According to a source who spoke to People, they had been dating for "over a year" by that time. The insider described their relationship as "serious" and mentioned that they were deeply in love, adding that Chris Evans was exceptionally happy, and his family and friends all had a great fondness for Alba Baptista.
Shortly after this news became public, the couple was seen holding hands while taking a walk in Central Park. Although there isn't much information available about their private relationship, Chris Evans has openly displayed his affection for Baptista on social media.
The "Knives Out" actor was seen leaving a playful comment on one of Baptista's Instagram posts around the time when news of their relationship first surfaced. Then, in February, Chris Evans, known for his role in "Captain America: Civil War," made their relationship Instagram-official. He shared a series of affectionate pictures on his Instagram Story in celebration of Valentine's Day.
In the months that followed, Evans posted more snapshots of their time together. These included images of the couple picking apples, skiing, witnessing the Northern Lights, and even sharing a kiss in the car, giving fans a glimpse into their romantic adventures.
While Chris Evans and Alba Baptista have largely remained quiet about their relationship, the "Fantastic Four" actor did express his desire to get married in November of the previous year.
He shared with People, "That’s absolutely something I want — wife, kids, building a family." He emphasized the importance of relationships, families, and love, and how these aspects often mean more to artists, whether they are actors, painters, or writers, than their work accomplishments. Evans also spoke fondly of traditions and ceremonies, having experienced them in his own life, and expressed his enthusiasm for creating those meaningful moments in the future.
