Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck got married in a Las Vegas drive-through chapel late on Saturday night in the culmination of a relationship that stretched out over two decades.

Lopez announced their marriage on Sunday in her newsletter for her fans, On the J Lo, with the heading “We did it.” Lopez initially made their engagement public in April in the same newsletter.

In a message signed Jennifer Lynn Affleck, she wrote: “Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient.”

Lopez wrote that the couple flew to Las Vegas on Saturday, stood in line for their license with four other couples and were wed just after midnight at the Little White Chapel, a chapel boasting a drive-through “tunnel of love.”

Lopez said a Bluetooth speaker played their brief march down the aisle.

“They were right when they said, ‘all you need is love,” she wrote. “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.”

She also wrote: “Stick around long enough and maybe you’ll find the best moment of your life in a drive through in Las Vegas at 12:30 in the morning and at 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.”

Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck famously dated in the early 2000s

Lopez, 52, and Affleck, 49, famously dated in the early 2000s, spawning the nickname “Bennifer,” before rekindling their romance last year. They starred together in the 2003’s Gigli and 2004’s Jersey Girl. Around that time, they became engaged but never wed, citing “excessive media attention” in a statement announcing it would be postponed.

“When we found ourselves seriously contemplating hiring three separate ‘decoy brides’ at three different locations, we realized that something was awry,” the couple said in a joint statement in 2004, before they split.

Affleck married Jennifer Garner in 2005 with whom he shares three children. They divorced in 2018.

Lopez has been married three times before. She was briefly married to Ojani Noa from 1997 to 1998 and to Cris Judd from 2001 to 2003. She and singer Marc Anthony were married for a decade after marrying in 2004 and have fourteen-year-old twins together.
