Newly Jennifer Lopez Has Changed Her Name After ‘Tying The Knot’ With Ben Affleck

The rekindling of Jennifer Lopez's old flame had people believing in the notion that true love is patient. She tied the knot with Ben Affleck after a passionate year - and break up - in 2003, just days before their wedding. But this time, they went through with it, and JLo looked super excited as she began her photo dumping on her social media after their surprise private wedding in Las Vegas.

Just three months after their engagement, the two tied the knot at the Little White Wedding Chapel. Previously, they had their marriage license done in Clark County, Nevada.

The 52-year-old then exchanged vows with the man in a small ceremony. She's also decided to change her name to Jennifer Lynn Affleck.

The Recorder's Office has yet to change their name as it's still waiting for their marriage certificate to be submitted by the marriage officiants, which might take up to ten days per Clark County Clerk's explanation.

The Bennifer couple has got people swooning after Jennifer broke off her engagement with Alex Rodriguez just a year ago. They were dating for four years, with Rodriguez often seen spending quality time with her children already.

Included in the newsletter were also their selfies and videos taken from their big day.

Ben looked excited as he manned the camera and did a little tour around his changing room at the chapel, "And this was my wedding changing room area!"

The Batman actor pointed the camera to the bathroom mirror, revealing the 49-year-old's silhouette in a white tuxedo, ready to appear as the groom.

Lopez, on the other hand, was in a more bedazzling room filled with more mirrors and outfits. The bride looked ready with her dress worn and her hair done.

The event saw her wear two different wedding dresses: the first one a sleeveless frock that fits the warm weather, while the second one featured lace details and a plunging neckline.

Lopez penned a romantic, touching post on social media after her late-night wedding, "We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient. Exactly what we wanted. 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."

"Behind us, two men held hands and held each other. In front of us, a young couple who made the three-hour drive from Victorville on their daughter’s second birthday."

"All of us wanting the same thing for the world to recognize us as partners and to declare our love to the world through the ancient and nearly universal symbol of marriage."

"We barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight. They graciously stayed open late a few minutes, let us take pictures in a pink Cadillac convertible, evidently once used by the king himself (but if we wanted Elvis himself to show, that cost extra, and he was in bed)."

"So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives."

"They even had Bluetooth for a (short) march down the aisle. But in the end it was the best possible wedding we could have imagined. One we dreamed of long ago and one made real (in the eyes of the state, Las Vegas, a pink convertible and one another) at very, very long last."

"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. Thank you to the Little White Wedding chapel for letting me use the break room to change while Ben changed in the men’s room. They were right when they said, “all you need is love.” We are so grateful to have that in abundance, a new wonderful family of five amazing children and a life that we have never had more reason to look forward to."

"Stick around long enough and maybe you’ll find the best moment of your life in a drive through in Las Vegas at twelve thirty in the morning in the tunnel of love drive through, with your kids and the one you’ll spend forever with. Love is a great thing, maybe the best of things-and worth waiting for," she ended her post.

It wasn't clear when the couple began going out again after 17 years of being apart, but in May 2021, fresh out of her old relationship, Lopez was spotted with her ex returning from a skiing resort in Montana in May 2021.

On The JLo

They confirmed their relationship three months ago through social media and red carpet appearances. Not even a year later, the couple was engaged as the pair announced it in April 2022. Then on July 17th, they were officially husband and wife!

On the other hand, Affleck ended his marriage with Jennifer Garner in 2018, with whom he shared three children after 13 years of marriage.
