Jennifer Lopez has confirmed she married Ben Affleck in Las Vegas.
After calling off their first engagement eighteen years ago, they publicly displayed news that they were back together on social media last year.
The couple met on the set of the movie ‘Gigli’ in 2002, and got engaged in 2003. But they broke it off in January of 2004, blaming “excessive media attention”.
Writing on her fan website ‘OntheJLo’, Lopez said they had flown to Las Vegas on Saturday and queued for a marriage licence alongside four other couples.
“Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient.” Lopez wrote on the website.
According to records at the Clark County Clerk’s Office in Nevada, Lopez intends to change her name to Jennifer Affleck.
