Celebrity couple Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez got married this weekend in Las Vegas. After about 18 years of separation, the two tied the knot and called off their engagement. The couple got engaged in 2002 but called off the relationship after about a year.
Jennifer and Ben reportedly obtained a marriage license in Nevada and got married in a chapel on Saturday.
According to IANS, Lopez confirmed their marriage through a new edition of her newspaper “On the JLo”.
“we’ve done!” Lopez wrote alongside a black and white photo of her holding a bouquet and Affleck kissing her cheek.
“Last night we flew to Vegas, lined up for licenses with four other couples, all taking the same trip,” Lopez shared.
The singer said that she “barely made it to the Little White Wedding Chapel by midnight,” and ended her newsletter with sweet enthusiasm, writing, “Stay long enough and you’ll probably have the best moment of your life las. Drive into the Tunnel of Love in Vegas at 12:30 in the morning, with your kids and with whom you will spend forever.
Love is a great thing, perhaps the best of things “and worth waiting for”. She signed the letter as “Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck”.
Meanwhile, hairstylist Chris Appletown shared a glimpse of his bridal look on Instagram. In the video, Jennifer can be seen swirling around in a simple white wedding gown. Posting the video, Chris wrote, “Last minute feelings before marriage…”
Earlier this year, Lopez was seen wearing an engagement ring while shopping with her 14-year-old child, Emme.
The couple first met in 2002 on the set of the movie “Gigali”. They parted ways in 2004.
Affleck was married to actress Jennifer Garner and they are parents to three children – Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10.
Jennifer, on the other hand, was married to Ojani Noah, dancer Chris Judd and singer Marc Anthony. JLo has twins with singer Marc Anthony.
Jennifer and Ben reunited last year after nearly 18 years. The pictures of the couple together started going viral and there were speculations that they are seeing each other again. They announced their engagement in April this year.
