Ben Affleck has earned the stamp of approval from Jennifer Lopezâs mom, Guadalupe âLupeâ RodrÃguez.
âI knew they would get back together. I knew that they were in love,â Sunny Hostin said while talking about the reignited pairâs Las Vegas nuptials on the July 18 episode of âThe View.â
âIâve spoken to her mother, Lupe, about it. Lupe has always said that Ben is her true love.â
Hostin, 53, continued on, telling her co-hosts that sheâs confident the love between Lopez, 52, and Affleck, 49, is âgonna last forever.â
âTheyâre gonna live happily ever after, and thatâs why she took his last name and she loves him,â she gushed.
âAnd that is it. This is it for her. She should have married him the first time.â
Page Six obtained Lopez and Affleck’s marriage license, which was filed on July 16. The âHustlersâ actress later confirmed the marriage herself in the July 17 edition of her âOn The JLoâ newsletter.
Lopez also legally changed her name to “Jennifer Affleck” after the surprise wedding to the “Gone Girl” actor. She signed off as “Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleckâ in her newsletter where she shared details about the wedding.
âWe did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,â the âMarry Meâ star wrote in the letter to her fans.
âWe barely made it to the little white wedding chapel by midnight,â she continued. âThey 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).â
Lopez and Affleck met in 2001 on the set of âGigliâ while the âDance Againâ singer was still married to her second husband, Cris Judd. They got engaged a year later but called it off in 2004.
After they both got married and had children of their own â to Marc Anthony and Jennifer Garner, respectively â they sent fans into a frenzy when they reunited in April 2021. They became engaged for a second time in April 2022.
