Chris and Alba are happy together
Elle had reported a source revealing that the then-rumoured couple were serious about their relationship and were in love. The source had added that Chris has never been happier and all his friends and family loved Alba. However, there was no official confirmation from the couple until today when Chris went Instagram official with his ladylove.
The duo used to follow each other on Instagram from quite sometime now, but never shared any images together. If their social media activity is looked into, Chris has been showing a truly dedicated boyfriend behaviour and since October 2022 onwards, he has been liking his girlfriend’s posts. Though it’s not clear if Alba stays with Chris or not, their Instagram 2022 highlights indicates that the couple spends a lot of time at the MCU star’s home in Boston.
MCU star all set to settle down
It seems Chris is all set to settle down as earlier as well, we have heard him talking about his plans to settle down with the right person. In his interview for People’s Sexiest Man Alive in 2022, the Knives Out actor had said that he wants to have a wife, kids and build a family of his own. He told the portal, “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.”
Chris Evans feels he’s a “much better” romantic partner now
Chris had revealed that after a long career of 41 years, he has realised that he is too old to be living out of a suitcase for six months and he is happy to be at his home. He had emphasised that having a family is the most important thing in life. Talking further on the topic, the actor had said that he simply loves the idea of tradition and ceremony and he had a lot of that in his life. Thus, he can’t think of anything better than creating that for himself. The Sunshine actor also feels that he is a “much better” romantic partner now when compared to his younger years. Chris’s past experiences have helped him to have a better understanding at identifying areas for personal growth and improvement. Earlier, the actor has reportedly been in relationships with several actresses including Kate Bosworth, Jenny Slate, Minka Kelly, and Jessica Biel.
On the professional front
On the work front, Chris was last seen in The Gray Man along with Ryan Gosling. The actor will be next seen in Red One alongside actor Dwayne Johnson for Amazon Studios.
