It's never too late! Jennifer Lopez, 52, is opening up about her 20-year love story with Ben Affleck, 49, in a heartfelt tribute.

Jennifer Lopez is living the dream life. Successful music career? Check. Celebrated acting career? Double check. Looking better in her 50s than I did in my 20s? Duh. Beautiful children? You know it. A fairy-tale romance following a reunion with her first love twenty years later culminating in a wedding in Las Vegas? Of course. J.Lo is opening up about this experience in an emotional tribute to husband Ben Affleck following their recent nuptials.

As you might know, or remember if you're a fan of a certain age like ourselves, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez were one of the power couples of the mid-2000s, getting engaged with an iconic pink ring in 2002, although they would call off the engagement in 2004.

Following their Vegas wedding, Jennifer penned an emotional tribute reflecting on this wedding twenty years in the making on her newsletter.

"They were right when they said 'all you need is love,'" J.Lo wrote.

"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 continued.

She described a little bit of their wedding night.

"Stick around long enough and maybe you'll find the best moments of your life in a drive through in Las Vegas at twelve thirty in the morning in the tunnel of love drive-through, with your kids and the one you'll spend forever with," she added.

“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient."

Jennifer signed off the newsletter with her brand new moniker — "With love, Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck."

It really feels like if Bennifer can pull it off all these years later, there might just be hope for the rest of us when it comes to true love.
