Chris Evans Had 2 Wedding Ceremonies With Alba Baptista
Chris Evans has finally publicly confirmed that he’s a married man and couldn’t be any happier about it. The Gray Man star, 42, took the stage over the weekend at New York ComiCon and confirmed he married Portuguese actress Alba Baptista, 26, last month. He was seen at the event wearing a gold band on his ring finger for the first time.
Double Dose of Weddings
“I got married,” a blissful Evans told the roaring crowd at the Javits Center. “It was really, really great.” He even said the two had two ceremonies. “We had one on the East Coast. We did one in Portugal. My wife’s Portuguese.” As the crowd continued to scream for the news, Evans added, “Yeah, yeah! Go Portugal!” Getting back to their weddings, the former Captain America star says, “They were wonderful and beautiful. It’s a lot! Planning for a wedding. For those of you who are married, it takes a lot out of you.”
After the double doses of wedding ceremonies, Evans said that now he and his new wife have “been enjoying life, gearing up for autumn” — his favorite season. As a Massachusetts native, it is of no surprise Evans enjoys the changing of the leaves. As we recently reported, the actor opened up about how he prefers a quieter life now that he’s in his 40s. Not long after he finished his contractually obligated Marvel performances, he left Los Angeles. Evans told GQ last month that he wanted to get far away from the city he associates with “Pavlovian anxiety,” so he returned home to Massachusetts. It “takes me back to a place when life was not just simpler—that’s too reductive—but to a time where I was more pure, I guess; where my ego and my insecurities weren’t such a dominant force that I had to push against.”
As we previously reported, Evans and the Warrior Nun actress had a very low-key ceremony, which was held at a private estate in Cape Cod. Guests were required to sign NDAs and had to give up their phones during the ceremony. The guest list included some of the actor’s Marvel co-stars, including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, and Jeremy Renner. The romance between the couple was confirmed last November Just days after People named him 2022’s Sexiest Man Alive.
Evans will next be seen in Pain Hustlers, co-starring with Emily Blunt, Catherine O’Hara, and Andy Garcia. The Netflix film premieres on October 27. Watch the trailer below:
