According to numerous people who have confirmed it to PEOPLE, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are married.
The couple received a marriage license in Clark County, Nevada, over the weekend, according to court documents that PEOPLE was able to obtain, months after announcing their engagement in April 2022.
In a “little” ceremony, the couple later got married, a source tells PEOPLE. “It was quite tiny. They got married because they only wanted to be married “a source said.
Lopez’s 52-year-old and Affleck’s 49-year-old representatives have not responded.
Last year, the Marry Me singer/actor and the Argo actor/director reignited their love.
The couple’s relationship has changed since they first met 18 years ago, according to Lopez, who spoke candidly about it to PEOPLE in February 2022. She said, “We’re older now, we’re smarter, we have more experience, we’re at different points in our lives, and we have kids now, and we have to be very conscious of those things.”
She and her ex-husband Marc Anthony share twins Emme and Max, age 14, while Affleck and his ex-wife Jennifer Garner have three children together: Violet, age 16, Seraphina, age 13, and Samuel, age 10.
At this point in our lives, when we can truly appreciate, enjoy, and respect each other, it’s a fantastic consequence that this has happened in this way, said Lopez. We have always appreciated it, but now much more so because we are aware of the unpredictable turns life might take.
Added she, “We have enough experience playing the public game to know who we are as people and what counts and doesn’t. We respect each other and have children. We genuinely conduct our lives in a way that makes us proud and that makes our children proud of us. It’s vital to us that we conduct our lives from a place of love and respect for everyone in them. We respect the truth because we are aware of its existence.”
In April, Lopez wrote about how Affleck proposed to her in the bathtub in her On the JLo newsletter.
“Have you ever thought that your wildest desire might come true?” At the time, she wrote. “My lovely love proposed to me on one knee on Saturday night while I was in my favorite place on earth (the bubble bath).
I was completely caught off guard and just stared into his eyes, laughing and sobbing at the same time as I tried to process the idea that this was happening again after 20 years. I was quite literally dumbfounded when he said, “Is that a yes?” Yes, of course, it is a yes, I said.”
I was crying and grinning so broadly, feeling so tremendously delighted and complete, she said. “It was the most romantic thing I could’ve ever imagined…just a simple Saturday night at home, two people committing to always be there for one other,” the author said. “It was nothing spectacular at all.”
The actress, who also made reference to her green diamond ring, said “Green has always been my lucky hue, and it undoubtedly will continue to be so in the future. whom real love was given a second opportunity.”
Prior to Lopez and Affleck, their relationship started in July 2002. They became engaged in November, but only a few days before their September 2003 wedding, they decided to call it off. In the end, they decided to break off their engagement in January 2004.
In December, Affleck told WSJ. Magazine that he felt “fortunate” to have been offered second chances in both his professional and personal lives.
