The couple made their red carpet debut at the premiere of The Secret Life of Pets in New York on Saturday. Jenny Slate, enjoyed a stint on Saturday Night Life and even appeared in two episodes of HBO’s Girls, got her first big break when she starred in the 2014 comedy, Obvious Child. The Secret Life of Pets is her first big-budget film.

The Secret Life of Pets is an animated family film about a bunch of pets in a Manhattan apartment building. She is voicing the character of Gidget, a white Pomeranian. “The Secret Life of Pets was fantastic! @jennyslate was a personal favorite,” the Captain American actor tweeted. Evans was not with her for the post-premiere interviews, but she told Entertainment Weekly that having him by her side was nice, as this is her first big premiere.

“I haven’t really had a large premiere before, so it’s nice to have someone who knows how it goes,” she said about Evans. “We didn’t know each other growing up, but we grew up about half an hour away from each other [in Massachusetts]… It’s kind of like I got my dream 7th grade boyfriend.”

Slate also invited her sister, Abby, in addition to her nieces and nephews. She also invited Evans’ friends, mother, sister and two of her sister’s kids to the premiere. “If I’m not the best aunt in America, then I don’t know what’s going on… I’m pretty sure I scored on this one,” she joked. Evans and Slate met on the set of their upcoming drama Gifted earlier this year and immediately hit it off.

People found out about the relationship back in May, when the first photos of the couple were released on the internet. An insider close to the couple said back in May that Evans and Slate are just good friends who like having a lot of fun of set. “They would hang out with the crew during takes and just be joking around,” said the source. It seems that they were more just two good friends, as they are now officially dating.

Slate spoke back in April about the first time she met Evans. “I didn’t know what to expect when I met Chris,” she said. “He’s a giant man with huge muscles and he’s Captain America. How could we ever connect?” Slate had been married to film editor Dean Fleischer-Camp before the couple announced last month that they were splitting up.
