HOLLYWOOD, CA - FEBRUARY 28: Actor Chris Evans attends the 88th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 28, 2016 in Hollywood, California.

People is reporting that Chris Evans has a “new love.” However, they also report that he has been dating her for a year. “New” is relative, apparently!

The magazine reports that Evans, 41, has been dating Portuguese actress Alba Baptista “for over a year and it’s serious.” They add that “They are in love and Chris has never been happier. His family and friends all adore her.” Neither actor has commented publically.

Baptista, 25, is in the cult favorite Netflix series Warrior Nun. She also starred in the film Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, which was released earlier this year. According to People, she speaks five languages and is the daughter of an engineer and a translator. Beyond acting, they report that in 2018, she did an extensive amount of humanitarian work at an orphanage in Cambodia focusing on education. They report that last year, she won the Shooting Star award at the Berlin Film Festival.

Earlier this week, so they’re probably a bit annoyed that he didn’t tell them about who he’s dating. Evans is apparently currently shooting a Christmas movie that is due out next year. It is called Red One and Evans co-stars with Dwayne Johnson, Lucy Liu and J.K. Simmons.
