Mrs. Affleck is displaying her new jewelry!
Jennifer Lopez announced her engagement to Ben Affleck on Instagram with a picture of her in bed, one day after they wed in a late-night wedding ceremony in Las Vegas on Saturday.
The picture of the celebrity, who was wearing little makeup, showed her basic wedding band and she appeared happy. “#iykyk Sadie Go to OnTheJLo for all the deets,” she captioned the photo, referencing Funny Girl’s “Sadie, Sadie” lyrics. (Fanny Brice sings the song “I’m Sadie, Sadie, married lady” in the play.)
Lopez, 52, described her private wedding, which she dubbed “the best night ever,” in a message to her fans.
The Marry Me actress admitted that she and Affleck, 49, “barely” arrived at the Little White Wedding Chapel before midnight and that he was wearing a jacket from his closet.
Lopez, who wore a white lace off-the-shoulder long sleeve bridal gown and matching veil with lace trim from Zuhair Murad, said, “We recited our own vows in the little chapel and handed one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives.” (In her newsletter, she also mentioned that she attended the wedding festivities wearing a different outfit, “a frock from an old movie.))
“All you need is love, as they said, and they were correct. We are very appreciative to have that in abundance, a new, lovely family of five incredible kids, and a life with so much to look forward to “Lopez, a mother of twins Emme and Max, 14, continued. Samuel, 10, Violet, 16, and Seraphina, 13, are Affleck’s children.
Lopez signed her newsletter “Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck,” indicating that she intends to use Affleck’s last name for a Clark County marriage certificate.
After becoming engaged in November of their first year of dating, Lopez and Affleck decided to postpone their September 2003 wedding only a few days before it was scheduled to take place.
The celebrities’ second chance at love was last year, and they have been jealously guarding it ever since.
Earlier this year, Lopez stated, “We have to be very mindful of those things because we’re older now, smarter, have more experience, are at different points in our life, and have kids now. The fact that this has occurred in this manner at this point in our lives, when we can truly appreciate, celebrate, and respect one another, is a great outcome.
