Watch: Lizzo's DMs With Chris Evans: More Juicy Details!

Somebody come get Chris Evans, we think he got lost in Lizzo's DMs—again.

Yes, our favorite duo is back with good as hell content. The latest? Well, the Grammy winner posted a TikTok pretending to be pregnant with Captain America's baby. "This is something that I've been really trying to keep personal and private just between me and the father of my child," she said. "But since we're airing out all the rumors today, I've been sucking in. We're going to have a little America."

And, as it turns out, Chris took a DNA test—and he's 100 percent that fake baby's dad. Returning to TikTok Aug. 2, Lizzo shared what appeared to be their Instagram direct messages. "Hi! Just heard about our little bundle of joy," he wrote with a laughing emoji. "My mother will be so happy lol."

He then added, "(Just promise me no gender reveal parties lol)."

Now, Lizzo is out here getting loose, gotta blame it on this news. "Guess what besties?!" she wrote to her 17.1 million followers. "We secured the child support bag!!!!!"

And the suggestions were epic. "Y'all can name it Erica," one commenter suggested, "because you can't spell America without Erica." Added another, "Name yo kid Steve Rogers."


Lizzo first decided to shoot her shot with Chris back in April. "Don't drink and DM, kids..." she wrote alongside a TikTok showing her message to him. "For legal porpoises this is a joke."

Thankfully, the Avengers alum was totally game. "No shame in a drunk DM [face-throwing-a-kiss emoji]," he replied, "god knows I've done worse on this app lol [facepalm emoji]."

Needless to say, a drunk DM has turned into a beautiful friendship we're very envious of. In fact, her most recent TikTok showed Chris even sent her a message on her birthday. "Happy birthday!! Heard you're in Vegas celebrating," he wrote in at the time. "I'm jealous :) Have fun!" 

So go ahead, shoot your shot.
