Thump In The Morning

Weekdays 5am - 10am Saturdays 2pm - 7pm

Jennifer Lopez’s life changed dramatically at the beginning of 2021, when she ended her engagement to Alex Rodriguez, and rekindled he romance with Ben AffleckAfter spending their honeymoon with their family just a few days ago, and after getting married three weeks ago, J-Lo and Ben Affleck have decided to spend less time together. They believed that this move will benefit their relationship in the long run. As both of their professions force them to spend periods of time apart, J-Lo and Affleck have decided to distance themselves so that this way they miss each other more. They don’t want to put their careers aside in the name of love and believe that the best option is to put some distance between them.

Most times a career can cause a change in a relationship causing one or the other to pick up and move to follow their significant other. But in this case the newlyweds both have successful careers. However, being separated so soon after their wedding is not ideal. But they know they have their whole lives ahead of them and are enjoying every minute of the journey.

Since she began dating Ben and J-Lo have moved to Los Angeles, where she is primarily based now. Ben Affleck shares three daughters with his ex-wife Jennifer GarnerViolet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10. And J-Lo has her 14-year-old twins, Max and Emme, with ex-husband Marc Anthony. Having primary custody of Emme and Max meant that the twins have now settled into a new life in LA, and their home is pretty incredible! It was revealed in May that Jennifer and Ben had taken their relationship to the next level and purchased a house together in Beverly Hills worth a staggering $60 million. They obviously have invested in more than a marriage together. We wish them the best and many years of happiness together.

Celebrities and Fans React To Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Marriage

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck got married over the weekend in Las Vegas after previously being engaged 20 years ago before calling it quits.

Writing to her On The JLo newsletter, Lopez, 52, said, “We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient.”

She continued to say that their elopement was “exactly what we wanted. Last night we flew to Vegas, stood in line for a license with four other couples, all making the same journey to the wedding capital of the world,” adding that they only wished “for the world to recognize us as partners and to declare our love to the world through the ancient and nearly universal symbol of marriage.”

The Hollywood “It” couple kept their attire simple, with J-Lo wearing “a dress from an old movie” and Ben wearing “a jacket from Ben’s closet.” Lopez said 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.”

Lopez said of their relationship, “When love is real, the only thing that matters in marriage is one another and the promise we make to love, care, understand, be patient, loving and good to one another. We had that. And so much more. Best night of our lives. They were right when they said, ‘all you need is love.’ 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. Stick around long enough and maybe you’ll find the best moment of your life in a drive-through in Las Vegas at twelve-thirty in the morning in 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.”

The singer and actress signed the newsletter, “With love, Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.”

News of the nuptials traveled fast, with celebrities and fans alike wishing the couple congratulations. Vanessa Hudgens told E! News of her Second Act co-star, “I was literally scrolling through Instagram and I saw that and I gasped.”

On Instagram, Vanessa Bryant wished Lopez congratulations, while Hoda Kotb wrote, “Love is patient and right on time. Congrats my darling.”

Fans congratulated the couple on getting hitched, while others sought this opportunity to troll the “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” singer, who has famously been married several times and in many relationships. See their reactions below:
