Congratulations to Chris Evans, the newly crowned Sexiest Man Alive and also, apparently, someone who’s been in a relationship for over a year. According to People, Evans has been dating actress Alba Baptista for the past 12 months. Yes, we are moving further and further from a reality where Lizzo and Chris Evans are dating. Yes, I am enraged.

Evans, on the other hand, has reportedly “never been happier.” Baptista is a Portuguese actress who recently starred in a show called Warrior Nun and also Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, a movie everyone’s mom keeps telling me is great. There are no details about how they met, whether she runs this Instagram account dedicated to his dog, or what she thought of his Buzz Lightyear chin, but I certainly intend to find out. People says Evans’s “family and friends all adore” her, and the relationship is “serious.” He recently suggested as much, telling the publication in an interview that he wants a “wife, kids, building a family” and has learned “what’s been helpful and what hasn’t been” when it comes to being a good partner.

Putting my personal disappointment aside, it all sounds pretty nice for Evans and Baptista. Maybe they can go on a double date?
