After months of speculation and fans asking 'Is Chris Evans dating Alba Baptista?' Chris Evans has seemingly confirmed his relationship with Portuguese actress. The 41-year-old actor, best known for his roles as Captain America in the Marvel franchise and more recent appearance in Netflix's The Grey Man, took to Instagram where he posted a cute video of him and Baptista trying to scare each other.

Sharing the video to his Instagram story, Evans paired the hilarious video with the caption "A look back a 2022" with three red heart emojis that made his loving relationship with Baptista clear.

The short clip shows Evans with his back turned away from the camera as he's contently doing his laundry. With no time to waste in her plot to scare him, Baptista screamed from behind the camera. 

In response, Evans jumped up and shouted before realising he was being pranked and is then seen laughing at the camera. In the next clip, Evans gets his revenge and he scared Baptista while she walked through a living room, causing her to drop her phone. The post comes after months of rumours that Evans and Baptista had been dating. 

News of the relationship comes just days after Evans was named People magazine’s 2022 “Sexiest Man Alive”. In an accompanying interview with the magazine, he revealed that he “absolutely” wants to start a family of his own.

He shared, “Wife, kids, building a family. 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.”

Prior to his current relationship with Alba Baptista, Evans' last publicised relationship was with actor Jenny Slate, who he met on the set of the 2017 comedy drama, Gifted. The pair called it quits in March 2018 because they couldn’t make their schedules work.
