Chris Evans goes Instagram official with partner of nearly two years

Chris went for an unconventional Instagram reveal.

Chris Evans has gone Instagram official with his girlfriend Alba Baptista, so now you know it's serious.

Chris and Alba, though, are anything but, and chose a rather unconventional way to round up their year together. Check it out here:

In the video posted to the Marvel star's Instagram Story, Chris and Alba take it in turns trying to scare each other.

Chris, 41, and Alba, 25, are well-able to make each other jump when the other least expects it - whether it's while doing laundry, walking past one another, or heading into or out of their apartment.

Over the course of the video, the pair manage to frighten each other eight different times.

But towards the end, Alba, who stars in Warrior Nun, gets used to her boyfriend's tricks, yelling: "I knew it!"

The Captain America star captioned the video: "A look back at 2022", followed by a series of love heart emojis.

The prank video marks the first time that Chris and Alba have confirmed their relationship publicly.

However, sources close to the actors told People back in November 2022 that they had been dating 'for over a year and it's serious'.

Chris and Alba went Insta-official via a scare video.

Alba, from Portugal, is an up and coming actor, who also starred in the 2022 film Mrs. Harris Goes To Paris.

In the same year, Evans' was named People's Sexiest Man Alive, in which he mentioned that he has started thinking about settling down and having a family.

"That's absolutely something I want: wife, kids, building a family," he said at the time.

"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."

The Knives Out star's last public relationship was with comedian Jenny Slate, who he split from in 2018.

Before he began dating Jenny in 2016, he had been in a seven-year relationship with Friday Night Lights star Minka Kelly from 2007 to 2014.

And before he started dating Minka, Chris dated fellow actor Jessica Biel from 2001 to 2006.

in an interview with Shondaland over the summer, The Gray Man star admitted that he had been 'laser-focused' on finding a life partner.

"Look - I love what I do. It’s great; I pour all of myself into it," he said.

"This industry is full of pockets of doubt, hesitation, and recalibration.

"In terms of really trying to find someone that you really can pour all of yourself into, maybe it’s about trying to find someone that you’re looking to spend your life with."

And it looks like Chris might have found that person in Alba.
