The "Gifted" co-stars had been friends for some time but recently started dating after Jenny split from Dean Fleischer-Camp, her husband of four years, reported Femalefirst.
"It's kind of like I got my dream seventh grade boyfriend. We didn't know each other growing up, but we grew up about half an hour away from each other. We've been friends for a while, and, yeah..."
Evans, 35, accompanied his new girlfriend to the premiere of her movie, "The Secret Life of Pets" in New York and they proved how serious their relationship is already, by making it a family affair.
The couple were joined by Jenny's sister Abby and her nieces and nephews, along with Chris's mother, sister and two of his sister's children.
Speaking about having Evans along to support her at the premiere, Jenny said, "I haven't really had a large premiere before, so it's nice to have someone who knows how it goes."
