Chris Evans has found a new love. Alba Baptista, a Portuguese actress, has seen the 41-year-old Lightyear actor. “They’ve been dating for over a year, and it’s serious, a source tells PEOPLE, adding, “Chris has never been happier. His family and friends alike adore her.” Evans and Baptista’s representatives did not reply to PEOPLE’s requests for comment.
Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris this year featured 25-year-old Baptista as the lead. She is the daughter of an engineer and a translator and is fluent in five languages. She contributed significantly to humanitarian efforts in 2018 at a Cambodian orphanage that prioritized education. She received the Shooting Star honor last year at the Berlin Film Festival.
Chris Evans was crowned PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive for 2022 this past week. The Captain America star claimed he’s “quite satisfied” with life right now in the cover story, emphasizing work-life balance and making the most of his free time with his loved ones.

Chris Evans continued, “I want a wife, kids, and to start a family. “When you read about most of the best artists, whether they are performers, painters, or authors, most of them [admit] it was about the connections; the families they established, the love they discovered, and the love they shared, [that they are most proud of] rather than the work they accomplished.”
“Therefore, it is something that has held throughout my long 41 years. Those are the most crucial factors, “explained him. “I adore the concept of ritual and tradition. I have a lot of stuff in my life, so I can’t think of a better idea than to create that.”
Evans claimed that as he aged, he improved as a love companion. He said it takes a lot of effort to figure out what has worked and hasn’t. We all have habits, baggage, or recurring behaviors, so I’ve pinpointed where I need to change and what works.
“I also see the courage and worth in stating “I’m sorry.” I believe that opens up a door in a very healthy way if you’re able to remain calm, listen, and say you’re sorry even if you don’t believe you’ve done anything wrong because it’s not from your perspective; it’s from the other person’s “Evans said. Jenny Slate, Minka Kelly, and Jessica Biel were among the actors Chris Evans has dated in the past.
