At the time, Jennifer revealed they had tied the knot in a low-key ceremony in Las Vegas and wrote in her On the J.Lo newsletter: "We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient.

"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. They even had Bluetooth for a (short) march down the aisle. 

"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."

The couple also had a second wedding in August 2022 at Ben's Georgia estate. 

Jennifer and Ben first began dating in 2002 after meeting on the set of Gigli. They got engaged the same year after Ben proposed with a six-carat radiant-cut pink diamond, but they sadly announced their split two years later.

Speaking of her wedding day, which took place 18 years after they called off their first engagement, the Marry Me actress wrote: "Some old wounds were healed that day and the weight of the past finally lifted off our shoulders. Full-circle — and not at all the way we planned it. Better."

They're now raising their blended family together. Jennifer has twins Emme and Max, 15, with ex Marc Anthony, while Ben is a father to his three children, Samuel, 10, Seraphina, 13,vand Violet, 17, with ex-wife, Jennifer Garner

In a recent appearance on the Today show, Jennifer spoke about Ben's role as a father figure to their children, saying: "They love Ben. He's a wonderful, wonderful father and a father figure to them as well." 

She continued, "He really steps up to the challenge of what that is and what that means and they love him. They appreciate him and so do I."
