People's Sexiest Man Alive Chris Evans is breaking hearts all around the world as reports surfaced about his new relationship.
The 41-year-old Lightyear actor is said to be dating Portuguese actress Alba Baptista, who stars in Netflix's Warrior Nun, for over a year now.
"It's serious," a source told People. "They are in love and Chris has never been happier. His family and friends all adore her."
As the cover star for the US publication, Evans talked about how he wants to settle down with the right person. "That's absolutely something I want: 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,” he added. “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.”
While they don't have any photos together on their Instagram accounts, they do follow each other on Instagram. Evans even commented on one of her posts from Nov. 9 when Baptista shared stills from her new film, Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris.
Who is Alba Baptista?
Born in Lisbon, Portugal, Baptista is a 25-year-old actress known for her role on Netflix's Warrior Nun. She's fluent in five languages including Portuguese, English, Spanish, French, and German.
Evans' rumored girlfriend started acting when she was 16 for a short film titled Miami, which she won a Festival Ibérico de Ciné award for. She continued to star in several Portuguese films and series like A Impostora, Filha de Lei, A Criaçāo, and Jogo Duplo.
Most recently, she's in Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris alongside Emily in Paris' Lucas Bravo, Harry Potter's Jason Isaacs, and The Crown's Lesley Manville.
