All is right in the world because Chris Evans and Jenny Slate have rekindled their romance. The couple, who split back in February after dating for nearly a year, looked “very much back together” when witnesses spotted them looking for an apartment in Tribeca earlier this week. Rumors started circulating recently that the couple had reconciled, and luckily, it turns out the two are back on.
People Magazine is confirming reports that the Captain America star and comedienne have decided to give their relationship another try after the two had dinner together in Atlanta while Evans filmed the new Avengers movie.
Speculation the two reunited increased when fans noticed them flirting via Twitter, and Slate started making references to “her boyfriend.”
According to In Style, Evans posted a video of his dog, Dodger, earlier this month and fans noticed a familiar laugh in the background that they were sure belonged to Slate.
This is Dodger’s stuffed lion. He loves it. He brings it everywhere. If you press it’s paw, it sings. Today, Dodger decided to join in. pic.twitter.com/CuH53VNVtF

Kathryn Lindsay at Refinery29 documented the Twitter exchanges between the two, plus Evans’ video post and Slate’s boyfriend tweets, and she brought up the possibility the two were an item again weeks before the news became official.
In one flirty exchange, Chris Evans began by tweeting that the theme song from MASH stresses him out, and his Pavlovian response was to worry about getting his homework done. Slate then replied that he should have it done because he had the whole weekend to do it.

The silly high school flirtation concluded with Slate inviting the Avengers Infinity War star to meet her behind the gym after science class.
At another time, Slate tweeted that her boyfriend is dreamy and generous, especially because he celebrates her new turtlenecks and cheers her on when she shops online.
The news shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise since the pair remained amicable after their split. They each spoke well of the other in interviews, with Evans once calling slate “his favorite human.”
When promoting her film Gifted, Jenny Slate told People that she and Chris Evans love each other very much and it’s a real love. She also said Evans was beautiful inside and out. That interview took place when the couple was officially broken up.
