The 42-year-old Marvel actor, Chris Evans, recently tied the knot with his 26-year-old girlfriend, Alba Baptista, in Cape Cod during the weekend. Nevertheless, their age difference has ignited controversy and drawn criticism on social media. Numerous individuals have used Twitter as a platform to voice their disapproval of the relationship, with some characterizing it as “creepy.”

Eligible bachelor.

Chris Evans has been considered one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors for many years. He had affairs with the first beauties. Among them Jessica Biel, Christina Ricci, Amy Smart, Lily Collins, Jenny Slate.

There was even talk that at one time he was romantically linked with Sandra Bullock, but the stars only smiled enigmatically when they heard about this rumor.

In 2022, the actor was named the hottest man on the planet. This title was passed on to him from his colleague in Marvel movies Paul Rudd. The 41-year-old actor took the news with humor, saying: “My mom will be so happy.”

As Chris got older, he changed his attitude to life. He began to spend less time at work, more attention to the family. And to all appearances, ripe for marriage.

He is the one.

Chris Evans and Alba Baptista hid their relationship for as long as they could. Eventually fans spotted them together at the airport. That’s when the couple admitted that they were a couple. Moreover, they secretly got married.

For the sake of his wife, the actor decided to spend less time working and devote more time to his family. “I haven’t worked all year and I don’t plan to, which has been lovely,” he said. “My girlfriend that I’ve had for a while, when we started dating, I was like, ’Yeah, I do one movie a year. I try to never work now.’ ”

Unexpected reaction to the news.

It would seem that the news should have pleased fans of the actor. He finally found his one and only. But the events took an unexpected turn. People began to discuss the 16-year age difference between the lovers.

  • “That 16 yr age gap would’ve been ON EVERY SINGLE HEADLINE IF IT WASN’T CHRIS EVANS I SAID WHAT I SAID,” one person wrote on Twitter. “Thought it was his daughter,” exclaimed another.
  • Another user expressed their opinion strongly, labeling the 16-year age gap as “gross” and emphasizing, “Even if you’re Chris Evans.”
  • A concerned commenter noted, “Chris Evans has said he’s wanted a family for years, then he gets a girlfriend who’s 16 years younger and still of age to start a family (as opposed to him), the wedding seems rushed, and she’s new in the industry and just starting up her career, this feels extremely icky to me.”
  • Another comment pointed out the double standard in the way that age gaps in relationships are perceived, “All I’m saying is when Priyanka Chopra married Nick Jonas, people are calling her ‘grandma’ and all that stuff, since she’s 11 years older than him. But when it’s Chris Evans marrying a woman who is 16 years his junior, the age gap doesn’t matter. Make it make sense, come on!”

While some people have expressed negative opinions about Chris Evans and Alba Baptista’s age gap, others have defended the couple and expressed their happiness for them.

  • One commenter joked, “This entire ‘age gap’ discourse makes me think y’all are just salty that Chris Evans didn’t marry YOU.”
  • Another said, “Even if those two consenting adults didn’t have an age gap y’all were gonna find something wrong with Chris Evans’ relationship. Y’all wanted him to be a bachelor for life.”
  • Some accused fans of jealousy, saying, “The entire discourse about the age gap between Chris Evans and his wife boils down to the fact that you people are trying to find an excuse to call it ‘creepy’ and ‘problematic’ because deep down you’re, frankly, jealous of her.”

Chris Evans, one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, has finally found his happiness. We wish the couple to ignore the insulting comments in their address and enjoy their marriage. After all, the most valuable thing in this world is to meet the one and only.
