Chris Evans & Alba Baptista Confirm Romance With PDA Stroll
Well, this is some buzz-worthy news: Chris Evans and Alba Baptista are officially an item.
That’s right, the Captain America star, 41, and the Warrior Nun actress, 25, confirmed their romance this week while walking through New York City’s Central Park together. Though the duo attempted to keep a low profile—wearing sunglasses and face masks—photographers spotted them hand-in-hand during their Nov. 11 stroll.
While Evans and Baptista have yet to publicly address their status, they’ve seemingly hinted at their relationship on social media. In fact, Evans showed his support for Baptista on Instagram this week as she promoted her film Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, commenting on her Nov. 9 post with clapping and melting face emojis.
Evans, who was recently crowned People‘s Sexiest Man Alive, also alluded to a new chapter in his romantic life over the summer, telling Shondaland, “Maybe [I’m] laser-focused on finding a partner, you know, someone that you want to live with.”
“I mean, look, I love what I do. It’s great. I pour all of myself into it,” the Lightyear actor, who previously dated Jessica Biel, Jenny Slate and Minka Kelly, continued. “But…even this industry is full of pockets of doubt, hesitation and recalibration in terms of really trying to find someone that you really can pour all of yourself into. Maybe it’s about trying to find someone that you’re looking to spend your life with.”

In addition to finding a partner, Evans has also shared his desire to become a dad one day. While promoting his film Gifted back in 2017, Evans told E! News, “I have a big family, a lot of little nieces and nephews, and cousins, and a lot of people in my life that I care about.”
With a smile, Evans added, “Chris does want to be a daddy at some point.”
