According to court documents cited by TMZ, the couple received a marriage licence in Clark County, Nevada, which was obtained and filed on Saturday, July 16. It has both their legal names – Jennifer Lynn Lopez and Benjamin Geza Affleck.
According to a source close to the Bennifer couple, they did indeed marry, and the licence is proof that they are now man and wife, TMZ reported. J Lo was photographed wearing an engagement ring while furniture shopping with her 14-year-old child, Emme.
Soon later, Lopez broke the news to her admirers in a video message in her newsletter, in which she says teary-eyed, “You’re perfect,” before revealing her stunning green diamond ring.
Affleck and Lopez first got engaged in late 2002, but they called it quits in 2004 before being married. They both had separate relationships, including marriages and children, but the exes met about a year ago and have been apparently inseparable since.
The progress in the couples’ relationship has been reported for long – they’ve been house hunting together, often bringing their children along, and indicated they were looking for a blended family setup. Despite the fact that several of their real estate projects fell through, the pair appears to have settled into a Beverly Hills estate.
Lopez’s car was sighted last month at a huge Beverly Hills house. There were also four moving trucks outside the estate, as well as trucks at Affleck and Lopez’s present homes in the Los Angeles region.
The house was not for sale but TMZ reported that the couple paid roughly $60 million for it. Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman once owned it. Now, they’re moving in as man and wife, TMZ confirms.
