From J.Lo to J.Aff.
Jennifer Lopez changed her name to Jennifer Affleck after her surprise Las Vegas wedding to now-husband Ben Affleck.
The “Jenny From the Block” singer reintroduced herself with the new name Sunday in her “On the JLo” newsletter, signing off, “With love, Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.”
While that may have been an informal change because of the announcement, the newlyweds’ marriage certificate, obtained by Vidak For Congress through Clark County Records, shows that she plans to use “Affleck” legally in the future.
Vidak For Congress confirmed Sunday afternoon that Lopez, 52, and the “Argo” star, 49, tied the knot the night before in Sin City. Hours later, the “Selena” actress confirmed the news and gave all the details about their marriage, including their combined five children.
“We were barely in the little white wedding chapel at midnight,” she revealed. “They graciously stayed open a few minutes late. Let’s take pictures in a pink Cadillac convertible, apparently once used by the king himself (but if we wanted to show Elvis himself it cost extra and he was in bed).”
Lopez added that she wore “a dress from an old movie” to exchange vows and that she and Affleck “gave each other the rings that we will wear for the rest of our lives.”
The couple met in 2001 on the set of their much-maligned movie “Gigli”, while Lopez was still married to her second husband, Cris Judd.
About a year later, Affleck proposed, but they broke up before going down the aisle.
The pair reunited 20 years later, shortly after the “Dear Ben” singer split from fiancé Alex Rodriguez in early 2021.
“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years of patience,” Lopez gushed Sunday.
