After leaving the gossip mills running with their relationship status, one of Hollywood’s most adored couples, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez are now officially married. The Hustle star shared a post on Instagram while flaunting her wedding band, leaving fans excited about her special day. Post the wedding, the actor even filed documents to legally change her last name to match her husband.
TMZ reported that the couple had obtained a marriage license in Clark County, Nevada, reading their full legal names, Benjamin Geza Affleck and Jennifer Lynn Lopez. The legal documents also stated Jennifer’s plans to adopt the Good Will Hunting actor’s name as her own.
The court documents show the 52-year-old singer, listed as “Party 2,” requested a “new name” on the marriage certificate filing, which was first received on July 16. Ben was listed as “Party 1” on the court documents with his full name recorded as Benjamin Geza Affleck.
“So with the best witnesses you could ever imagine, a dress from an old movie and a jacket from Ben’s closet, we read our own vows in the little chapel and gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives,” she continues. “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,” an excerpt from the newsletter read.
