Bennifer has officially tied the knot! 3 months after announcing their engagement in April 2022, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck received a marriage license that was issued by Clark County, Nevada (dated 16th July).
The pop star took to her “On The JLo” newsletter to confirm her marriage to the Oscar-winning actor, after sharing a cryptic post on her Instagram. “We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. 20 years patient,” the singer-actress wrote.
In her post, J Lo revealed that she and Ben got married in a late-night Las Vegas drive-through chapel. Together with them, 4 other couples also walked down the aisle just after midnight at the Little White Chapel. Here’s what she wrote:
“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,” the entertainer shared. “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).”

Jennifer also added that she opted for “a dress from an old movie” as they “gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives.”
Congratulations to the newlyweds 😉
