Lopez revealed their nuptials in a fan email titled “We did it” on Sunday. Lopez first announced their engagement in April in the same newsletter, “On the J Lo.”
“Love is lovely. Love is kind. Love, it turns out, is patient. Twenty years of endurance, “Lopez stated in an email signed by Jennifer Lynn Affleck.
Lopez writes that the pair traveled to Las Vegas on Saturday, stood in line with four other couples for their license, and was married just after midnight at the Little White Chapel, which has a drive-through “tunnel of love.” Lopez said that a Bluetooth speaker played their brief procession down the aisle. She referred to it as the finest night of their life.
“Stay around long enough, and maybe you’ll discover the finest moment of your life in a drive-through in Las Vegas at 12:30 a.m. in the tunnel of love drive-through with your kids and the one you’ll spend the rest of your life with,” Lopez added.
The couple’s wedding became public on Sunday after the Clark County clerk’s office in Nevada revealed that they had gotten a marriage license on Saturday. According to the marriage license application, Lopez intends to assume the name, Jennifer Affleck.
Lopez and Affleck’s representatives declined to comment.
Lopez, 52, and Affleck, 49, famously dated in the early 2000s, giving rise to the moniker “Bennifer,” before rekindling their love last year. They previously appeared in Gigli in 2003 and Jersey Girl in 2004. They became engaged but never married around that time.
In 2005, Affleck married Jennifer Garner, with whom he had three children. In 2018, they divorced.
