Chris Evans, widely known for his role as Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, surprised fans and followers when he publicly confirmed his recent wedding to actress Alba Baptista at the much-awaited New York Comic-Con. The charismatic actor disclosed that the couple had not just one, but two joyful ceremonies – one held in Portugal, and the other on the East Coast.
Expressing his delight, Evans described the ceremonies as “wonderful” and “beautiful,” emphasizing how they have been relishing their newfound status as newlyweds. However, he couldn’t resist cracking a joke about the weight of wedding planning, admitting that it drained quite a bit of their energy.
This marriage announcement comes as no surprise to those who have been following the couple’s blossoming romance, as they were first romantically linked in 2021. Fans have eagerly been awaiting confirmation of their union, and the NYCC event served as the perfect platform for Evans to share this significant news.
Interestingly, Evans’ appearance at New York Comic-Con coincided with the ongoing strike negotiations between the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) and major studios and streaming services. These contract negotiations have unfortunately been suspended since July, resulting in actors and performers being on strike for months.
In contrast, the Writers Guild of America (WGA) recently reached a new contract agreement with the studios and streamers, effectively ending their strike and allowing thousands of individuals to return to work. The discrepancy between the outcomes of these negotiations has left many in the entertainment industry in limbo, eagerly hoping for a resolution on the actors’ end as well.
While fans are ecstatic about Evans’ wedding news, they also express concern for the ongoing strike and its impact on the entertainment world. As negotiations continue between SAG-AFTRA and the studios/streamers, industry insiders and fans alike are anxiously waiting for a fair and favourable resolution. In the meantime, they celebrate Chris Evans and Alba Baptista’s matrimonial bliss and wish them a lifetime of happiness together.
