Chris Evans and Lizzo have absolutely wrecked the internet again - in a totally good way of course. The actor recently responded to the singer's claims that she was "pregnant" with his child in the most hilarious way.
Now, this whole Chris-Lizzo fiasco started way back when Lizzo had just a little too much to drink and decided to do what we can only dream of: slide into Captain America's DMs. I mean, come on, it's Chris f****** Evans. Avenger. Political activist. Dog-lover. All-round global treasure. Who wouldn't want to find the courage to slide into his DMs?
Anyway, Lizzo shared her attempt with her fans on TikTok, posting a screenshot of what she sent to Evans, just 3 simple, but powerful emojis: A gust of wind emoji, a person slam-dunking, and a basketball and, if we're not mistaken, that is clearly someone shooting their shot.
Her followers were absolutely living for her drunk blunder and asked her to keep them updated on what happens so, of course, the body-positivity advocate came through with the goods, sharing follow-up screenshots of the pair exchanging cute messages back and forth. *Sigh*, if only we were all as lucky as Lizzo.
But the latest installment in their love story comes after rumors about the "Good As Hell" singer being pregnant started gaining traction. And as for the father? Of course, people assumed it would be Evans. Who else could it possibly be, right? And Lizzo was here to "confirm" those rumors. Just for the vibes.
"This is something that I've been really trying to keep personal and private between me and the father of my child," she said in the video. "But since we're airing out all the rumors today, I've been sucking in.
"We're gonna have a little America."

The hilarious clip gained thousands of and comments and guess who just happened to hear about it through the grapevine? The man himself. Chris Evans slid back into Lizzo's DMs to play along with the rumor, saying: "Hi! Just heard about our little bundle of joy my mother will be so happy lol."
Not just your mother, Chris. Us too.
But he also stressed that he doesn't want to have a gender reveal party.
Lizzo reposted a screenshot of his message alongside the caption: "OMG YALL- HE SAW THE BABY BUMP! WE DID IT! NOW YALL GOTTA NAME LIL MERICA!!!!! WHAT YALL BOUTA NAME MY BABY?"

Comments poured in, none with helpful suggestions on name options though. Instead, many were opting for "Chrizzo", an obvious and slightly off-putting combination of the two celebrities' names. I'd go with something like William, maybe? Classy, timeless, and "Will" is a pretty nice nickname. You gotta think ahead.
Anyway, make sure to join me for the next Chris-Lizzo interaction, whenever that may be, but in the meantime, I'll be reading some "Chrizzo" fan fiction to keep myself preoccupied.
