On Saturday, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck tied the knot in a late-night drive-thru chapel in Las Vegas, capping a union that lasted for two decades, featured two different romances, and made several tabloid covers.
Lopez disclosed the couple’s nuptials in a fan email on Sunday with the subject line “We did it.” In the same email, “On the J Lo,” Lopez first revealed their engagement in April.
“Love is lovely. Love is nice. Love, it turns out, is a patient thing. Twenty years patient,” Lopez penned a letter bearing Jennifer Lynn Affleck’s signature.
A Little White Wedding Chapel, which has a drive-through “tunnel of love,” is where the couple was married after midnight on Saturday after flying to Las Vegas and waiting in line for their license with four other couples.” A Bluetooth speaker, according to Lopez, played their quick march down the aisle. She referred to it as their best night ever.
“If you wait long enough, maybe you’ll experience the best moment of your life in a drive-through in Las Vegas at 12:30 in the morning with your children and the individual you’ll spend your life with, “Lopez added.
The couple’s marriage was announced for the first time on Sunday after the Clark County Clerk’s office in Nevada revealed that their marriage license had been processed on Saturday. Lopez intends to adopt the name Jennifer Affleck according to the marriage license application.
Lopez and Affleck’s representatives declined to respond.
The early 2000s relationship between Lopez, 52, and Affleck, 49, that gave rise to the moniker “Bennifer” was rekindled this year. They appeared in the films “Gigli” in 2003 and “Jersey Girl” in 2004. They got engaged around that time, but they never got married.
In 2005, Affleck wed Jennifer Garner; they have three kids together. 2018 saw their divorce.
Lopez has previously been married three times. She had brief unions with Cris Judd from 2001 to 2003 and Ojani Noa from 1997 to 1998. After getting married in 2004, she and singer Marc Anthony were wed for ten years and have twins who are now 14 years old.
