Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck officially tied the knot at the weekend, nearly 20 years after they first planned to say 'I do'.

And just days after the couple became husband and wife, it's believed they will soon be holding a celebration with family and friends at Ben's estate in Georgia, which so happens to be very sentimental to the famous pair.

According to TMZ, Ben, 49 and J.Lo, 52, had planned on getting married at the 87-acre estate back in 2003, before they called the wedding off.

Now, it's thought the couple will hold a party to celebrate their nuptials in the very same spot, with all of their nearest and dearest.

Tyla has contacted reps for J.Lo for comment.

The couple wed at A Little White Wedding Chapel on Saturday, with J.Lo announcing the happy news in a newsletter sent out on Sunday, 17 July.

"Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient," she wrote, signing off with Jennifer Lynn Affleck.

“They were right when they said, ‘all you need is love’. We are so grateful to have that in abundance, a new wonderful family of five amazing children, and a life that we have never had more reason to look forward to," she added.

"Stick around long enough and maybe you'll find the best moment of your life in a drive through in Las Vegas at 12:30 in the morning in the tunnel of love drive through with your kids and the one you'll spend forever with."

The couple first started dating back in July 2002 and were engaged by November. Although their wedding had been planned for the following September, it was cancelled days before, with the pair citing the media attention as their downfall.

In 2014, J.Lo wrote: “Ben and I split up at the moment when I thought we were committing to each other forever, it was my first real heartbreak, it felt like my heart had been torn out of my chest.”

Ben has previously been married to actor Jennifer Garner, who he shares three children with. The couple were married for 13 years before they divorced in 2018.

Meanwhile, J.Lo has previously been married three times. She was previously married to Marc Anthony for 10 years, with the couple sharing twins together.

We're so happy for these two!
