Jennifer Lopez opens up on taking husband Ben Afflecks last name: Its romantic!


Jennifer Lopez has revealed why she took husbandBen Affleck’s last name, gushing that she finds it "romantic" and "traditional".

The Hollywood star, 53, opened up on the decision in a new stunning photoshoot and interview with Vogue as their December cover star, revealing that people will still call her "Jennifer Lopez" but her legal name will be "Mrs. Affleck".

Jennifer and Ben, affectionately known as "Bennifer", had a surprise Las Vegas ceremony in July after rekindling their romance followed by a second wedding ceremony at Ben’s £6.7 million home in Savannah, Georgia, in front of a group of family and A-list friends.

Talking to Vogue about taking Ben's last name, she said: "We’re husband and wife. I’m proud of that. I don’t think that’s a problem."

Asked if Ben could have taken her last name, making him Mr. Lopez, Jennifer laughed before adding: "No! It's not traditional. It doesn’t have any romance to it. It feels like it’s a power move, you know what I mean?

"I’m very much in control of my own life and destiny and feel empowered as a woman and as a person. I can understand that people have their feelings about it, and that’s okay, too. But if you want to know how I feel about it, I just feel like it’s romantic. It still carries tradition and romance to me."

Jennifer and Ben recently told how their combined five children played a special role in their wedding.

The actress wrote in her newsletter: "We weren’t only marrying one another; we were marrying these children into a new family.

“They were the only people we asked to stand up for us in our wedding party. To our great honour and joy, each one did."

Jennifer added that "nothing ever felt more right to me" when she talked about tying the knot with her now-husband.

She continued: "I knew we were finally 'settling down' in a way you can only do when you understand loss and joy and you are battle tested enough to never take the important things for granted.

"Years ago, we had no idea the road ahead would mean navigating so many labyrinths and hold so many surprises, blessings, and delights.

“It all culminated in this moment, one of the most perfect of our lives. We couldn’t have been happier."
