Did Jennifer Lopez rush to marry Ben Affleck? Singer was afraid actor would get ‘cold feet’
Jennifer Lopez got married to Ben Affleck in an intimate affair in Las Vegas as confirmed by the songstress on Sunday, July 17. The duo tied the knot in a wedding chapel in Nevada with Jennifer’s child Emme, and Ben’s youngest daughter, Seraphina, in attendance. Jennifer, who first got engaged to Ben 20 years ago, apparently rushed to get married this time before the actor got cold feet.
The nuptials apparently took place at the last minute. Ben Affleck, according to sources, revealed the marriage plans to his ex-wife Jennifer Garner on Friday at the earliest. The ‘Batman v Superman’ actor’s ex-wife was soaking up the sun in Lake Tahoe over the weekend when she got the news. Speaking of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck’s low-key wedding, the two celebrated the occasion on a plane back to Los Angeles while binging on pizza and sipping Diet Coke.

In her newsletter, according to Deadline, Jennifer spoke about her wedding saying, “We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient. Exactly what we wanted.” An excited JLo continued, “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.”
She continued, “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” adding, “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.”
