Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are Officially Married!
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck married in Las Vegas after rekindling their relationship in 2021.
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are officially married. The “On the Floor” singer confirmed the news herself in her OnTheJLo newsletter last Sunday, July 17. This was after the media reported they got hitched in Las Vegas.
“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,” Jennifer said. She added that they almost didn’t make it to the chapel, who graciously extended their time to accommodate them.
According to the Marry Me actress, she wore a dress from Zuhair Murad while Ben wore a tuxedo from his closet. She also wrote that they recited their own vows and exchanged rings.
“In the end, it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined,” she shared. “When love is real, the only thing that matters in marriage is one another and the promise we make to love, care, understand, be patient, loving, and good to one another. We had that. And so much more. Best night of our lives.”
A blended family
In addition, Jennifer Lopez thanked her children and Ben’s children who served as witnesses. She even signed the newsletter as Jennifer Lynn Affleck, confirming she will carry Ben’s last name after the media obtained the couple’s marriage license.
Longtime coming for Bennifer
Dubbed Bennifer by the media, Jennifer and Ben’s relationship has been the subject of scrutiny for years since they met back while doing the movie Gigli. The two got engaged in 2002 and were about to get married in 2003 before postponing it and later calling off the engagement in 2004.
The two eventually moved on to other relationships. Ben married actress Jennifer Garner. They share three children—Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel. The two officially divorced in 2018 but are successfully co-parenting their kids.
Jennifer has two kids—Max and Emme—with Mark Anthony, with whom she divorced in 2014. She was also in a relationship with former athlete Alex Rodriguez.
In 2021, the two got back together. They officially confirmed the news when they were spotted at a red carpet event. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have since been spending time together—even bringing their kids to some events.
