What's Really Going On With Alba Baptista And Chris Evans?

Chris Evans is undoubtedly one of Hollywood's hottest stars. The actor was even rumored to be People's Sexiest Man Alive in 2021, but that title was ultimately given to Paul Rudd. Nonetheless, Evans has still maintained a healthy dating history. Evans — who stars in the Netflix film "The Gray Man" — recently opened up about his personal life and suggested that he was keen on finding a life partner.

"Maybe [I'm] laser-focused on finding a partner, you know, someone that you want to live with," he said during an interview with Shondaland. "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," Evans continued. "Maybe it's about trying to find someone that you're looking to spend your life with. Yes, so maybe it's that."

And while Evans has not explicitly revealed whether he's dating anyone, the Boston native was recently linked to "Warrior Nun" star Alba Baptista. According to JustJared, the two first sparked dating rumors in 2021. However, it now seems as if Evans is dropping another hint about his alleged relationship.

Chris Evans and Alba Baptista have been friendly on Instagram

Despite Chris Evans staying relatively mum about the details of his love life, sources close to the actor have suggested he's all-in with Alba Baptista. "Ever since he met Alba, he's laser-focused on her, and he's stopped playing the field," an insider told OK! "Word is they've even gotten matching tattoos, which is not usually his style at all." The source went on to claim that the "Captain America" star has been longing to start a family but was waiting to find the right one. The source added, "He seems convinced that she could be the woman he's been waiting for."

Some now believe recent activity on Instagram may be confirmation that Evans and Baptista are an item. On November 4, Baptista posted a slideshow to Instagram teasing the Season 2 premiere of "Warrior Nun" with the caption, "1 week." And, according to JustJared, Evans was quick to "like" Baptista's post, sending fans into a frenzy.

The move comes only days after social media users suggested that Evans' Halloween post, which included a photo of two jack-o'-lanterns, was the same image Baptista's mother previously used as her profile picture.
