Jennifer Lopez switched her name to Jennifer Affleck after her surprising Las Vegas wedding to so far Ben Affleck. She announced their Vegas marriage in her letter on Sunday, finishing the message with a new title: Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.
In the year of 2000, Lopez and Affleck were among the most popular couples. They collaborated on two films. The first was 2003’s Gigli, by the time Kevin Smith’s Jersey Girl entered theaters in 2004, and the pair had already declared their split. Though, they never officially married, but the couple had been relationship for a long time.
The pair revealed their wedding in April when Lopez posted a video of her enormous green-stoned wedding ring on her platform, sparking an online infatuation with the couple who originally began dating in July 2002.
Previously, Affleck was married to Jennifer Garner, with whom he had three children. They had separated in 2018 after 13 years of marriage. Lopez’s fourth marriage; she previously married singer Marc Anthony for ten years and had twins with him.
I don’t believe anyone was more astonished than us, Lopez said of rekindling their love nearly 18 years after they divorced. It’s a lovely thing, she continued.
Affleck has yet to make a public statement. One of the tougher things that I have learned is that it’s not prudent to share everything with the public, he told the Wall Street Journal in December 2021.
Affleck earned an Oscar for producing the best picture winner Argo, while Lopez made a fortune traveling, appearing in movies, and recording songs. They reconnected a year ago, dating in public but without the same scrutiny from the celebrity press, which has changed and become less judgmental since the turn of the century.
