Off the market! Chris Evans and his girlfriend Alba Baptista have reportedly wed during an intimate, at-home wedding over the weekend, according to Page Six
In January, Evans, 42, officially confirmed his relationship with Alba, 26, in a cute video in which he and his love were trying to scare each other.
In the caption he said he was looking back on 2022 as he added three red heart emojis that made it clear he had love for the budding star.
In November, People reported the action star has been dating her for over a year and the relationship is ‘serious.’
‘They are in love and Chris has never been happier. His family and friends all adore her,’ a source told the site.
In the past, he has dated actresses Jenny Slate, Minka Kelly and Jessica Biel. Last year, he was also rumored to be close to Selena Gomez.
Chris told People in 2022 that he feels very ‘content’ in his personal life.
And he also shared that he would like to settle down one day. ‘That’s absolutely something I want: wife, kids, building a family,’ said the actor.
‘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. 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,’ he added.
Baptista has a successful career as an actress.
At age 16, she worked in a short film Miami landing in her the Best Actress Award at the Festival Ibérico de Ciné.
She then starred in several films in Portugal including Caminhos Magnétykos by Edgar Pêra,and Equinócio by Ivo Ferreira.
In 2019 she appeared in the film Patrick, the directorial debut of Gonçalo Waddington, and which was in competition at San Sebastián International Film Festival.

Alba starred in the lead role of Ava in Netflix’s series Warrior Nun, which was released in 2020. This year she had the lead role in Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris.
She has a heart too: Four years ago she did humanitarian work at an orphanage in Cambodia.
During the early years of his career, Chris dated such names as Jessica Biel, Kate Bosworth and Christina Ricci and was also linked to Sandra Bullock.
Since becoming a global superstar in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Chris conducted an on-off romance with Jenny Slate of Big Mouth fame.
‘They are in love and Chris has never been happier. His family and friends all adore her,’ a source told the site
In July, Evans’ brother, Scott, defended his sibling’s romance with Alba, despite their 16-year age gap.
In response to public scrutiny and wild reactions to Chris’ relationships over the years, Scott, who is openly gay, said that ‘it’s tough’ for Chris as ‘people can ruin things pretty quickly.’
While appearing on Nick Viall’s podcast The Viall Files, Scott explained how fame affected his brother’s ability to date.
Scott explained that a superstar’s girlfriend will initially think: ‘Oh, I’m just dating a person, he’s a guy,’ only to find herself on the business end of ‘article after article after article after post after tag after tag.’
He spoke candidly about Chris’ besotted public ‘destroying’ his girlfriends and denouncing ‘anybody he’s tried to date’ as ‘a piece of crap.’
Scott acknowledged that ‘you can only take that for so long,’ which ‘makes relationships kind of hard for him, I think.’

Chris’ stardom, he said, developed in ‘a slow burn over the years,’ rather than an overnight shock where ‘all of a sudden he catapults to fame.’
The two brothers ‘watched the Internet happen’ together, Scott said, pointing out that ‘Twitter wasn’t around when he started making movies.’
Now at the height of the social media age, the internet ‘can be a dark place’ where ‘people can get very bold with the things they think are appropriate.’
Scott claimed that he hears from some of Chris’ smitten fans, who refer to Scott as their ‘brother-in-law’ while rhapsodizing about the Marvel hunk.
Meanwhile Scott had nothing but kind words for Alba, confirming that ‘I approve’ of the Portuguese actress’ relationship with Chris.
In 2019, the year after he split from Jenny for the final time, Chris told Men’s Journal: ‘I really want kids. Yeah, I do. I like pretty pedestrian, domestic things.’
The Knives Out sizzler declared: ‘I want a wife, I want kids. I like ceremony. I want to carve pumpkins and decorate Christmas trees and s*** like that.’
