After nearly eight months of marriage, Chris Evans and his wife Alba Baptista have made their romance red carpet official. 

Attending the Vanity Fair 2024 Oscars Party, Chris and Alba debuted their romance alongside Hollywood’s crème de la crème, with the pair sharing a smile while wrapping their arms around one another in front of the press. 

Sadly for fans, the couple’s stance on the red carpet meant that photographers were unable to catch a glimpse of Alba’s wedding ring. Despite this, their first outing as a couple was still met with great excitement from audiences who have been eagerly awaiting their first glimpse of the new A-list love story.

The couple’s red carpet debut follows Chris’ announcement in October 2023 that they had tied the knot. 

“I got married,” Chris told the audience at New York Comic Con. “It was really, really great.”

“We kind of had two ceremonies. We had one on the East Coast, we did one in Portugal—my wife’s Portuguese. Yeah, yeah! Go Portugal!”

Chris continued to explain that the pair’s wedding ceremonies were “wonderful and beautiful.”

“It’s a lot, planning a wedding. It’s a lot. Those of you who are married [know] it takes a lot out of you. But now that we’re through that, we’re just kind of been enjoying life, gearing up for autumn, my favourite season. It’s like, the best time of year right now. Now we’re just relaxing and enjoying life and reflecting.”

Chris’ previous comments came one month after Page Six began reporting that the Captain America star married Alba Baptista in an intimate wedding in Massachusetts. 

A source told the publication that the nuptials were “locked down tight” with guests required to sign NDAs and forfeit their phones. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth and Jeremy Renner were reportedly in attendance.

Chris Evans has kept his relationship largely out of the public eye, with news of his relationship with Alba only breaking in November 2022 after The Gray Man star was crowned Sexiest Man Alive by PEOPLE.

According to a source who spoke to the publication, the 42-year-old had been dating fellow actor Alba Baptista for over a year and that their relationship was “serious”.

“They are in love and Chris has never been happier. His family and friends all adore her,” the source divulged.

In 2023 the pair celebrated the premiere of Chris’ new film Ghosted, arriving at the New York City premiere together. Although it’s clear the couple still are keeping their relationship private –  choosing not to walk the red carpet together. 

So who actually is Evans’ wife, where have we seen her before and what’s the tea on their relationship? Below, we investigate the important questions.

Who is Chris Evans’ girlfriend?

How did Chris Evans and Alba Baptista meet?

While the origins of their relationship are yet to be divulged by the pair themselves, fans have deduced a rough timeline of when they got together, which appears to date back to August 2021.

The evidence comes via Evans’ likes on Instagram, with the Captain America star having liked Baptista’s photos from late 2021. The pair are yet to go Instagram official, but after their Vanity Fair Oscars Party appearance, here’s hoping it’s not long before they do.

What has Chris Evans said about his girlfriend?

While he hasn’t directly addressed Baptista in public, Evans has alluded to where their relationship could go. Speaking to PEOPLE for his Sexiest People interview, he revealed that he’s keen to marry and have kids.

“That’s absolutely something I want: wife, kids, building a family,” Evans explained.

“When you read about most of the best artists, whether it’s actors, painters, writers, most of them [admit] it wasn’t the work they made, it was about the relationships; the families they created, the love they found, the love they shared.”

Who else has Chris Evans dated in the past?

Evans dated Jessica Biel for five years from 2001 to 2006, during which time they starred in two films together. After splitting, Biel began dating Justin Timberlake and they’re now happily married.

Next, Evan was romantically linked to Shameless star Emmy Rossum after they were pictured kissing in an LA bar. The pair never confirmed their relationship, and whether it was an innocent fling or something more, it didn’t last long.

He was also rumoured to be dating Laguna Beach allum Kristin Cavallari back in 2008, with sources telling Page Six that they “definitely hooked up”. But Cavallari later cleared up the rumours saying that they were “just friends”.

“I’ve known Chris for a while, just through mutual friends,” she explained.

Throughout the 2010s, numerous sources and multiple unconfirmed reports claimed Evans dated a whole string of famous Hollywood women including Lily Collins, Sandra Bullock, Selena Gomez, Amy Smart, Diana Agron, Elizabeth Olsen, and Ashley Greene.

The only other woman he was ever confirmed to be dating (aside from Biel and prior to his now-girlfriend, Alba Baptista) was Jenny Slate, who dated Evans on and off between 2016 and 2018.

It seems Evans is now happier than ever with Baptista, and it certainly seems like he’s ready to sign and seal the deal, too. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for updates.
