Congratulations are in order for Chris Evans, who is celebrating his 43rd birthday this June 13, his first ever birthday as a married man.

It has been a big year for the Captain America actor, who tied the knot with fellow actress Alba Baptista last September during an intimate Cape Cod ceremony in front of some of his Marvel co-stars, including Robert Downey Jr.,Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson.

He made a rare comment about his wedding during an appearance last year at New York's Comic-Con, revealing that they actually held two wedding ceremonies, the one in Cape Cod, and another in Portugal, where Alba, 26, is from.

Happy Birthday Chris Evans!

"It was really, really great. We kinda had two ceremonies," he said at the time, adding: "They were wonderful and beautiful. It's a lot, planning a wedding. For those [of] you who are married, it takes a lot out of you."

"Now that we're through that, we've just kinda been enjoying life, gearing up for autumn, my favorite season. It's the best time of year right now. Now we're just relaxing and enjoying life and reflecting."

The newlyweds later made their red carpet debut at the Vanity Fair Oscars after party in March of this year. They subtly coordinated, with Chris making a fashion statement – and matching the red carpet – donning a sharp red suit by Santoni layered over a classic white button down and black tie.

Meanwhile Alba, 26, looked as chic as he looked dapper, donning a columnal white dress with a black bust section. She had her hair styled in a romantic updo, accessorized with a blindingly bright diamond necklace and ring, plus, in a sweet matching moment with her hubby, she had her nails painted red, discreetly coordinating with the Marvel star's suit.
