When did Chris Evans and Alba Baptista start dating?
Chris Evans and Alba Baptista’s relationship has been the subject of rumors and speculation ever since they were first spotted together. While the exact start date of their relationship is unknown, rumors of their romance began circulating last year.
Evans and Baptista were first revealed to be dating in November 2022. According to the initial report by People, the two had been dating for a year prior to the reveal. “They are in love and Chris has never been happier. His family and friends all adore her,” an insider told the news outlet at the time.
Evans, who was named People’s 2022 Sexiest Man Alive, revealed to the magazine that he’s ready to settle down and start a family.
“That’s absolutely something I want: wife, kids, building a family,” Evans said in his cover story. “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 [that they are most proud of], it was about the relationships; the families they created, the love they found, the love they shared.”
“So it’s also something through my long 41 years that also rings true. Those things are the most important,” he added. “I love the idea of tradition and ceremony. I had a lot of that in my life, so the idea of creating that — I can’t think of anything better.”
In that same issue of the mag, Evans shared that he’s gotten more romantic as he’s grown older. “You spend a lot of time learning what’s been helpful and what hasn’t been,” he said. “We all have patterns, hang-ups or baggage that repeat and echo, so I’ve really been able to kind of identify where I need improvement and what works.”
When did Chris Evans and Alba Baptiste get engaged?
In May 2023, Deuxmoi, an anonymous gossip Instagram account that has over 2 million followers, posted a blind item claiming that Chris Evans and Alba Baptista were engaged and getting married in Boston. The post was quickly picked up by other gossip websites and social media accounts, and the rumors of their then-supposed wedding began to spread. Neither Evans nor Baptista had confirmed or denied the rumors, so their wedding was still a surprise to a lot of their fans.
