Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have officially tied the knot according to sources close to the couple. Lopez and Affleck had a surprise intimate ceremony in Las Vegas where both took their vows.
Lopez confirmed their Vegas wedding in her newsletter Sunday, ending the letter with a new name: Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.
“Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world,” Lopez wrote. “We barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight. They graciously stayed open late a few minutes, let us take pictures in a pink Cadillac convertible, evidently once used by the king himself (but if we wanted Elvis himself to show, that cost extra and he was in bed).”
Lopez wrote she wore a dress from an old movie and Affleck wore a jacket from his closet. “We read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives,” she wrote. “In the end it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined.”
Jennifer Lopez shared a ton of content on her website/newsletter OnTheJLo, where she and her team spilled all the deets about their nuptials. Lopze wrote, “We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient.”
J Lo referred to the ceremony as their dream wedding, one they wanted long ago — and ended by saying; “They were right when they said, “all you need is love”. We are so grateful to have that in abundance, a new wonderful family of five amazing children and a life that we have never had more reason to look forward to.”
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck get married in Las Vegas
The love saga between Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck has gone on for more than 20 years reports CNN. The couple initially met in December 2001 on the set of the rom-com “Gigli,” where they played criminals stuck on a job together and the pair strike up real-life friendship.
By November 2002, the two were engaged, but postponed their wedding in September 2003 citing “the excessive media attention” surrounding their wedding. They never made it down the aisle and officially called off their engagement in January 2004.
After 17 years with children and marriages, both Lopez and Affleck have finally found their way back to one another. It is reported that Affleck proposed to Lopez again in April while she was soaking in a bubble bath.
“I was taken totally off guard and just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying hard to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again, I was quite literally speechless and he said, ‘is that a yes?’ I said YES of course that’s a YES,” she wrote in her newsletter.
