Cape Cod, Massachusetts was graced with a touch of Hollywood glamour this weekend. Chris Evans, the celebrated actor known globally as Captain America, exchanged vows with Alba Baptista, amidst close friends and family at a private estate, according to People.
The 42-year-old actor's wedding was nothing short of a stellar affair. Close friends, many of whom were familiar faces from the Marvel universe, flocked to nearby Boston to celebrate the union.
Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, Susan; Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky; Jeremy Renner; and the charming duo John Krasinski and Emily Blunt were spotted among the attendees.
Who is Chris Evans' rumored wife Alba Baptista?
Chris from Sudbury, Mass., and Alba, a multi-talented Portuguese actress, have been in a relationship that was described as "serious" as of November 2022.
The 26-year-old actress isn't just fluent in five languages; she’s made waves in the industry with roles like the one in Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris and the recently revived Netflix series Warrior Nun.
Beyond her on-screen accomplishments, Alba has a golden heart, evident from her extensive humanitarian work in a Cambodian orphanage in 2018 and her Berlin Film Festival's Shooting Star award win in 2021.
Their relationship's sweetness was often showcased on Chris' social media. On Valentine’s Day, he posted a montage of their moments together – hiking, traveling, sharing affection, and even playing with his beloved dog, Dodger.
Chris even playfully shared a video compilation of their little scares throughout the year, cheekily captioned: "A look back at 2022."
What has Chris Evans said about marriage?
Chris has always been forthcoming about his views on relationships and family. In an interview, he once expressed his contentment with life, focusing on a harmonious work-life balance and cherishing moments with loved ones.
He mentioned: "That's absolutely something I want: wife, kids, building a family." Drawing parallels between personal and professional fulfilment, Chris opined: "Most of the best artists...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."
He continued with nostalgia: "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."
In the summer of 2022, shortly before his relationship with Alba, The Gray Man star confessed he was "laser-focused" on finding a partner.
"Maybe [I’m] laser-focused on finding a partner, you know, someone that you want to live with," he told Shondaland. "I mean, look — I love what I do. It’s great; I pour all of myself into it. But in terms of — 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."
