Celebrity pals and admirers of Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are congratulating the pair on their surprise wedding over the weekend.
“Congratulations!” Vanessa Bryant commented on a photo of the “Marry Me” star — who rekindled her romance with Affleck in 2021 — in bed with her wedding ring on.
“Love is patient and right on time. Congrats my darling,” TV personality Hoda Kotb wrote, while Brad Goreski commented, “Huge congrats! How wonderful!”
“Happily Ever After💗💗💗💗,” trainer Tracy Anderson commented, while Kerry Washington left a slew of heart-eyed emojis.
“Real Housewives of Orange County” star Heather Dubrow and Kim Kardashian both commented with heart emojis.
Her “Second Act” co-star Vanessa Hudgens also expressed her happiness for the “Let’s Get Loud” singer.
“I was literally scrolling through Instagram and I saw that and I gasped,” the “High School Musical” alum told E! News after the announcement.
“I’m so excited for her. I love her. She deserves the whole world, and I just love a full-circle romance. It’s so cute.”
The newlyweds met while filming “Gigli” in 2001, at which time Lopez was still married to Cris Judd. Following her divorce, she got engaged to the “Good Will Hunting” star in November 2002, but they broke things off a reported two days before the ceremony.
Lopez would go on to say Affleck was “her first big heartbreak,” however the pair found their way back to each other 2021 after Affleck split from Ana de Armas and Lopez from Alex Rodriguez.
They continued to date seriously for months, before he popped the question — for the second time — and confirmed that they were engaged in April 2022.
She revealed they were officially husband and wife in the July 17 edition of her “On The JLo” newsletter.
“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is child. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,” she wrote of the Las Vegas ceremony, noting it 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. Behind us two men held hands and held each other. In front of us, a young couple who made the three hour drive from Victorville on their daughter’s second birthday—all of us wanting the same thing— 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,” she continued.
Lopez also said she wore “a dress from an old movie” as they exchanged vows in the “little chapel” and “gave one another the rings we’ll wear for the rest of our lives.”
“We barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight,” she revealed. “They graciously stayed open late a few minutes, let us take pictures in a pink Cadillac convertible, evidently once used by the king himself (but if we wanted Elvis himself to show, that cost extra and he was in bed).”
