If you’re anything like me, you can’t get enough of the whole Lizzo/Chis Evans dream romance situation that is unfolding on the singer's TikTok. And there’s more tea to spill! Apparently there’s an imaginary little Avenger in Lizzo’s womb and Chris Evans knows all about it. And he had the best response to learning about the "big news."

This chapter in the endearing tale that is Lizzo’s and Chris Evans’ social media love story all started when a fan told Lizzo that they knew she was pregnant with Evans’ child, and the musician jumped into action to jokingly confirm the pregnancy claim. Apparently Evans heard all about his fake unborn child and responded in such a way we’ve come to know and love from the Captain America actor. Check out the TikTok below,

Lizzo revealed in a video on her TikTok that Chris Evans sent her a DM about the supposed pregnancy, where he is pretty much all joy. Evans, in typical mama’s boy fashion, says his mom will be happy about the news and calls the fake baby their little “bundle of joy”. Here it is in Evans’ own words:

Hi! Just heard about our little bundle of joy my mother will be so happy lol

What’s even better than his reaction to the news he and Lizzo were having a fake baby is that the DM from Evans came before 4AM. If he were a normal person, I would chalk that up to a drunk text, but since it’s Evans, he’s actually probably just up for an early morning workout or to take his dog for a stroll.

It’s clear that he actively sought Lizzo out this time, reaching out over the pregnancy joke to start up a new conversation after a few months of not talking. In the TikTok, you can see in their chat history that the last time they spoke (at least in these DMs) was when he wished Lizzo a “Happy Birthday” back in April, and it looks like Chris Evans was the one who initiated that little chat as well.

In her post, Lizzo talks about how her fans now need to come up with a name for “little ‘merica”, which honestly is probably the best name already. The artist’s imaginary relationship with Chris Evans started a few months ago when Lizzo contacted Evans, shooting her shot. The actor responded to her messages positively, and they seem to have a friendly and playful faux relationship going on.

The only thing left is for these two to meet in real life, really, and I’m dying for it to happen. Chris Evans has plenty of time now to finally start up something with a lucky lady, now that his time with Marvel is pretty much done and Gray Man has also finished filming. Sure, he’s got plenty of other projects in the works, but it seems like he’s carving out some time to throw Lizzo (and their fake baby) some love too.

Chris Evans Responds To Lizzo's Joke About Being Pregnant With His Child

Fox News 03 August, 2021 - 12:05pm

Continuing an ongoing joke, Lizzo reveals that Chris Evans responded to her pregnancy joke by announcing how happy his mother would be.

Avengers star, Chris Evans, responded to a pregnancy joke Lizzo made on her TikTok account. Lizzo responded to a fan’s comment, pretending to confirm that she was pregnant with Evans’ child. However, this isn’t the first interaction between the Captain America star and singer.

In April, Lizzo revealed on TikTok that she’d accidentally slid into Evans’ direct messages on Instagram after drinking too much. She’d messaged Evans a series of emojis roughly translating to the phrase ‘shooting my shot.' Later, she announced to her followers that Evans had replied to her drunk message, joking that he’d ‘done worse’ on the social media app, referencing when he accidentally shared an NSFW photo of himself in 2020. After a fan teasingly continued the fabricated romance between the singer and actor by joking that everyone knew she was pregnant, Lizzo pretended to announce that she was having a baby with Evans, claiming they would have a 'little America.’

Evans, humorously onboard with the running gag, responded in a Direct Message to Lizzo, who gleefully shared it on her TikTok account. Check out his response below:

“Hi! Just heard about our little bundle of joy my mother will be so happy lol. (Just promise me no gender reveal parties lol).”

The response affirms that the superhero has a sense of humor and isn’t afraid to join in on jokes at his expense. His reference to his mother being happy indicates that she has been eagerly anticipating a grandchild from one of her two sons. Over the years, the actor has been linked to multiple famous women. He dated Jessica Biel for five years from 2001, before she married Justin Timberlake. He was also in a high-profile relationship with Jenny Slate, whom he met while filming Gifted (2017), but they split quickly after conflicting work schedules and an onslaught of verbal abuse from fans. Evans has also been the victim of many dating rumors, from Sandra Bullock to fellow Captain America: Civil War star Elizabeth Olsen to Pam & Tommy, lead Lily James. Along with Lizzo, it seems the star has no shortage of romantic rumors.

In an interview for Gifted, Evans revealed that he wants to be a father and have children, so despite the false baby announcement being a joke, the discourse is rooted in one of the actor’s deepest desires. Surrounded by his Avengers co-stars, who are all married or have children, this topic, while he plays on it lightly, might be an area of vulnerability for the star who turned 40 this year. After his DM, Lizzo took to TikTok again to announce Evans’ acknowledgment, excitedly exclaiming that her fans can name ‘Lil Merica.’ It appears that this running joke will continue for now, as long as Chris Evans is comfortable participating.

Airline exec reacts to duct-taping of unruly passenger on Miami flight

WPLG Local 10 03 August, 2021 - 11:44am

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A Frontier Airlines executive says the violent confrontation between a passenger and flight attendants that was caught on camera this past weekend “definitely was a very serious situation.”

Local 10 News first reported Monday about the arrest of a 22-year-old man on three counts of battery after he was accused of attacking a male flight attendant and groping the breasts of two female flight attendants during a Frontier trip from Philadelphia to Miami on Saturday.

The situation got so bad that flight attendants retrained Maxwell Berry with a seat belt extender and duct-taped him to his seat.

“Flight attendants in their initial training and recurrent training learn a lot of different techniques in how to keep control of the cabin, because safety is paramount when you’re flying,” Tyri Squyres, VP of marketing for Frontier Airlines, said Tuesday.

Squyres and other Frontier executives were at Miami International Airport to announce that the company is adding flights to 10 destinations this November, including Aruba.

The incident Saturday night started with a profanity-laced tirade from Berry directed at a flight attendant, which was caught on cell phone video.

Local 10 spoke exclusively with the passenger who recorded the video.

“He started to get aggressive and then basically attack the male flight attendant,” Alfredo Rivera said.

Miami-Dade County police say Berry had a few alcoholic drinks, then groped the breasts of two female flight attendants and punched a male flight attendant, prompting crew members to subdue him.

“After an incident like this we are going to do a thorough investigation and really view what happened and how it was handled to make sure that everything is done properly and followed procedures,” Squyres said.

The flight attendants have been placed on paid leave during the investigation.

A flight attendant union has called on Frontier Airlines to support its crews immediately.

“Flight Attendants have faced an onslaught of disruptions on our flights this year. The situation on Frontier this weekend is one of the worst examples,” Association of Flight Attendants-CWA President Sara Nelson said in a statement. “A drunk and irate passenger verbally, physically, and sexually assaulted multiple members of the crew. When he refused to comply after multiple attempts to de-escalate, the crew was forced to restrain the passenger with the tools available to them onboard. We are supporting the crew.

“Management suspended the crew as a knee-jerk reaction to a short video clip that did not show the full incident. Management should be supporting the crew at this time not suspending them. We will be fighting this with every contractual and legal tool available, but we would hope there will be no need for that as management comes to their senses and supports the people on the frontline charged with keeping all passengers safe. As noted in our unruly passenger survey, if this is not immediately corrected, Flight Attendants may feel unsafe to come to work. Management has a legal duty to maintain a safe work environment for employees.”

Frontier Airlines released a new statement later Tuesday, saying:

“During a flight from Philadelphia to Miami on July 31, a passenger made inappropriate physical contact with two flight attendants and subsequently physically assaulted another flight attendant. As a result, the passenger needed to be restrained until the flight landed in Miami and law enforcement arrived. Frontier Airlines maintains the utmost value, respect, concern and support for all of our flight attendants, including those who were assaulted on this flight. We are supporting the needs of these team members and are working with law enforcement to fully support the prosecution of the passenger involved. The inflight crew members’ current paid leave status is in line with an event of this nature pending an investigation.”
