Jennifer Lopez endured “a little bit of PTSD” before to her marriage to Ben Affleck.
Due to the fact that the couple’s first engagement “failed,” the singer questioned whether their second effort to tie the knot was “really happening,” she told Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday.
The 53-year-old Grammy winner recounted, “The wedding was so stressful, despite the fact that we were so happy that it was occurring.”
Lopez stated that Affleck conceived of their Las Vegas wedding in July 2022.
The dancer stated, “One day, Ben simply said, ‘F–k it, let’s just go to Las Vegas and get married tonight.'” “He told me to attend rehearsal. When you return, I will have everything prepared.'”
After tying the marriage in Sin City, the couple remarried in front of family and friends in Georgia one month later.
Lopez and the 50-year-old Oscar winner were engaged from 2002 to 2004. In 2021, the “Gigli” co-stars reignited their affair.
At the time, the songwriter had recently split up with Alex Rodriguez. Lopez was formerly wed to Marc Antony, with whom she shares 14-year-old twins Emme and Maximilian.
The “Tender Bar” actor Affleck married Jennifer Garner in 2005. Prior to their 2015 divorce, the former couple welcomed Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Violet, 10 years old.
After Lopez and Affleck reconciled, the actor proposed with a green diamond ring.
“He had to ask me again,” Lopez revealed on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” of the April 2022 bathtub proposal. “I no longer owned that [ring].”
They renewed their engagement in 2022.
Affleck raved to Vogue in November 2022 about his second-chance romance, describing Lopez as “exactly the person he remembers from twenty years ago.”
The Golden Globe winner continued, “Perhaps she sees all the changes she’s made, but when I see her, I primarily see someone who has, against all odds, retained the characteristic that has always struck me as the most remarkable.”
