Marvel’s very own Chris Evans, known worldwide for his iconic role as Captain America, and ‘Warrior Nun’ sensation Alba Baptista have taken their love story to the next chapter. On September 9, 2023, amidst the serenity of Cape Cod, the couple sealed their bond in an exclusive, low-key ceremony.
A Private Affair
The wedding, which took place at the couple’s Boston-area residence, was the epitome of privacy and exclusivity. As reported by Page Six, the ceremony saw only the couple’s closest friends and kin. To ensure utmost privacy, the event was “locked down tight”, with guests required to sign non-disclosure agreements. Additionally, they had to leave their phones behind.
An inside source vividly depicted the couple’s romantic journey, stating, “They are in love, and Chris has never been happier. His family and friends all adore her.” Adding a cherry to the celebratory cake, the newlyweds were later glimpsed hand-in-hand in Central Park.
A Star-Studded Guest List
Though the wedding was a quiet affair, it didn’t lack the dazzle of Hollywood. Many prominent figures were sighted in Boston around the time of the wedding. Notably, Evans’ Marvel comrades like Robert Downey Jr. and his spouse Susan, Chris Hemsworth with his wife Elsa Pataky, Jeremy Renner, and the power couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt were some of the familiar faces seen. In fact, a few were caught on camera while engaging at the posh Contessa restaurant in Newbury Boston hotel.
A Modern Love Tale
The love journey of Chris and Alba started making rounds in 2021. Curious fans joined the dots when Baptista began following Evans and his family on Instagram. Although the duo hasn’t spilt the beans on their first meeting, speculations are rife that their paths crossed while Evans was engrossed in Netflix’s ‘The Gray Man’, and Baptista was filming ‘Warrior Nun’s sequel. Fueling the rumours, Evans once posted a picture of jack-o-lanterns resembling images from Baptista’s mother’s profile. The lovebirds, however, made their relationship Instagram-official in January 2023 with a heartwarming montage of shared memories.
Spotlight on Alba Baptista
For those unfamiliar with Baptista, she hails from Lisbon, Portugal, and has been a shining star in numerous Portuguese films and series. Her role in Netflix’s ‘Warrior Nun’ was her stepping stone into the English-speaking world of cinema. Apart from her admirable acting skills, Alba is a polyglot, speaking five languages. Her heart of gold is evident as she has previously volunteered in a Cambodian orphanage, emphasizing education.
