Chris Evans may have a new woman in his life. No, it’s not Selena Gomez (so much for those rumors). The Marvel movie star, 40 is rumored to be dating actress Alba Baptista, 24. Fans noticed that Chris started following Alba on Instagram back in Fall 2020, though she didn’t return the favor until June 2021. Since then, Alba has also followed Chris’ brother, Scott Evans, 38. Chris was recently in Alba’s native Lisbon, so of course, fans are convinced that they were there together. There’s also talk that Alba spent New Year’s Eve in Los Angeles, which is where Chris lives. The alleged couple apparently met in Summer 2021 while they were each filming projects in Europe.

For now, the Chris-Alba romance is nothing more than a rapidly-spreading theory. We of course know plenty about Chris, but who is Alba? Here’s what you need to know about the gorgeous actress who maybe, just maybe, is dating Chris Evans.

1. Alba is from Portugal.

Alba was born on July 10, 1997 in Lisbon, Portugal. Her mother was Portuguese, while her father was Brazilian and from Rio de Janeiro. The couple reportedly met while Alba’s mother was working as a translator in Brazil. Alba appears to still live in Portugal, a place that will always be near and dear to her heart.

2. She is multilingual.

Alba’s from Portugal, so she can obviously speak Portuguese. She also speaks English, which is a must if she’s truly dating Chris! But that’s not all: the talented star also speaks Spanish, French, and German, according to a past interview. That means Alba can speak five (!) different languages. That’s certainly helpful as she travels around the world for her acting career.

3. She’s an actress.

Alba got her start in acting at age 16 in Simão Cayatte‘s short film Miami. The role earned her the Best Actress Award at the Festival Ibérico de Ciné. Alba starred in more Portuguese films like Caminhos Magnétykos, Equinócio, and Patrick, as well as the TV shows Jardins Proibidos, A Impostora, A Criação, and Jogo Duplo. Her big break came in Netflix’s hit series Warrior Nun, based on the comic book character Warrior Nun Areala. Alba plays Ava Silva, a quadriplegic orphan who discovers she now has supernatural powers which force her to join an ancient order of warrior nuns. It’s her first English-language debut in acting. Warrior Nun premiered its first season in July 2020. Season 2 filmed in Summer/Fall 2021 in Spain, which is where Alba may have met Chris.

4. Alba is on Instagram.

Alba is fairly active on Instagram, where she has over 400,000 followers. She typically posts trendy images of herself in Portugal. She also gives fans a peek at some behind-the-scenes footage from Warrior Nun and other acting projects. Chris has not popped up on Alba’s IG — yet!

5. She’s been linked to a famous actor before.

Chris is not the first actor that Alba has been romantically linked to. She was previously rumored to be dating Emily in Paris star Lucas Bravo, 33. Apparently, the pair were spotted on vacation together in May 2021, sparking dating rumors. However, fans pointed out that they very well may just be friends, especially since they are co-stars in the upcoming movie Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris. It seems like no matter the guy, Alba just doesn’t want to address her dating life. But fans are continuing to hold up hope that Alba is indeed the lucky woman dating Chris Evans.
