The couple showcased their style with Evans, 42, donning a sophisticated brown overcoat paired with deep purple pants, while 26-year-old Baptista exuded the holiday spirit in a striking red tea-length dress, complemented by a navy blue overcoat and a white scarf.

Amidst mingling with Evans’ fellow “Avengers” co-stars at the bash, including Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, and Jeremy Renner, the couple was captured sporting joyful smiles, marking their first public appearance together since their wedding in Boston.

The wedding, held in early September, was shrouded in secrecy. Attendees had to adhere to strict privacy measures, surrendering their phones and signing NDAs to ensure utmost confidentiality during the celebration.

Evans officially confirmed his marriage a month later during New York Comic Con, delighting fans with the announcement and proudly displaying his wedding ring. He humorously remarked on the wedding planning challenges, jokingly acknowledging the effort it takes to organize such an event.

The actor also revealed details about their dual wedding ceremonies, explaining, “We kind of had two ceremonies. We had one on the East Coast, and we did one in Portugal — my wife’s Portuguese. But they were just … wonderful and beautiful.”

News of Evans and Baptista’s relationship surfaced in November 2022, initially rumored after they were spotted in Central Park. Their relationship remained under wraps until they confirmed their romance and eventual marriage, delighting fans with glimpses into their love story.
