Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are officially husband and wife!
Finally getting their ‘happily ever after’ together after 20 years, the couple wed in Las Vegas over the weekend at the A Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.
In a court filing obtained by E! News, it appears JLo has legally changed her name to ‘Jennifer Affleck’.
Giving fans an exclusive glimpse inside their nuptials, the singer shared a series of phone snaps from the ceremony in her ‘On the JLo’ newsletter. The new bride also shared a few details about the wedding, much to our delight.
“So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s 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,” JLo detailed in the newsletter. “They even had Bluetooth for a (short) march down the aisle.”
The 52-year-old described it as “the best possible wedding we could have imagined… one we dreamed of long ago… at very, very long last”.
Take a sneak peek inside the wedding below.
JLo and Affleck, known as ‘Bennifer’, announced their second engagement back in April of this year, nearly two decades after they were due to wed the first time.
The singer herself confirmed the news via her fan newsletter in a short video which showed a tearful admiring a gorgeous green diamond ring on her engagement ring finger.
The engagement comes a year after the pair began dating in April last year and nearly 20 years after the pair were set to wed for the first time in the early 2000s.
JLo and Affleck, dubbed ‘Bennifer’ at the time, first began dating in July 2002 after meeting on the set of Gigli in 2001. The couple’s relationship was heavily publicised and a somewhat media storm at the time.
The pair became engaged for the first time in November 2002. Affleck proposed with a pink diamond ring reportedly worth an eye-watering $2.5 million.
Bennifer were set to marry on September 14, 2003, but was postponed due to what was cited at the time as “excessive media attention” surrounding the nuptials. Four months later in January 2004, they announced they had split.
Affleck went on to marry actress Jennifer Garner in 2005 but split up in 2018. The pair have three children together.
Meanwhile, Jlo went on to marry Marc Anthony in 2004, with whom she has two children. The pair divorced in 2014 after 10 years of marriage. Most recently, JLo was engaged to former professional baseball player Alex Rodriguez. They began dating in 2017 and became engaged in 2019. However, the couple announced their split in April 2021.
It’s clear that Bennifer are proof that second chances do exist.
