AceShowbiz - Ioan Gruffudd has been seen in public for the first time with Bianca Wallace. The "Forever" actor was spotted out and about with his new girlfriend in Los Angeles just weeks after his estranged wife Alice Evans called out the alleged mistress.
In photos obtained by Daily Mail on Sunday, December 5, the 48-year-old actor could be seen walking arm-in-arm with Bianca around a park in L.A. The couple then stopped at a local convenience store, where he was seen purchasing a lottery ticket.
For the outing, Ioan, who made public his relationship with Bianca in October, opted to wear a navy blue knitted sweater paired with jeans and trainers. In the meantime, the 29-year-old showed off her shapely legs in leggings and wrapped up in a beige padded jacket.
Their first public appearance came just weeks after Alice claimed Bianca "ruined her life" in a series of social media posts. "Creepy," the "102 Dalmatians" star wrote while reposting a since-deleted tweet, which showed Bianca liking a family photo of Ioan and Alice with their children in 2019. The 53-year-old actress added, "Bianca Wallace spent many months liking pics of our little family before stepping in and seducing the father."
In a separate post, Alice shared Bianca's Instagram post from September 19, in which the "Dora and the Lost City of Gold" actress wrote she was going to be away from her dog for two months. Along with the photo, Alice wrote, "How to be a good Mistress, Part One: 1) Don't send out silly… Instagrams like this when you're semi-naked and horse-teethed telling people 'I'm just going to miss the dog' BULL. S**T. You're going to sleep with my husband."
Alice, who announced her split from the Welsh actor in January, said that she's unable to sleep at night after learning about his new relationship. "Can't sleep. I used to think I would die for him. What was wrong with me? I just had total confidence that in this world, He was the one person I could absolutely count on My rock. My honey. My best friend," she confessed.
Ioan was the first who filed for divorce. The "Fantastic Four" actor filed the paper in Los Angeles Superior Court on March 1, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason behind their split. The court docs revealed the former couple separated on New Year's Day, a month before they went public with their relationship status.
