As we all know by now, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck tied the knot this past weekend in Las Vegas. This news? Major. The fan reaction? Major. The drama? ... Potentially major.

While initial reports indicated that only two of the pair's combined five children were there, it's now been speculated that Jennifer's mom, her two children, Emme and Max, and two of Ben's children, Seraphina and Samuel, were also in attendance.

However, according to new reports, Ben's eldest daughter Violet was not there due to loyalties to her mom, Jennifer Garner.

As fans will recall, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck first got engaged back in 2002 with the STUNNING pink diamond I will always think about.

Sadly for Bennifer fans, the pair called off the wedding and split in 2004.

Of course, Ben would go on to marry actress Jennifer Garner and have three children, while JLo married singer Marc Anthony and had twins.

While social media was filled with messages of congratulations, others had concerns for Ms. Garner.

Despite the pair being divorced for 4 years now, some fans feared Jennifer might be feeling some type of way about her ex-husband marrying his ex-fiancee.

"Jennifer Garner spent years being dragged through hell trying to fix this man," tweeted one user. "I keep trying to tell y'all men are different with different women. If it ain't working...let it go."

"Whenever I see posts about him, I really feel for Jennifer Garner man," said another.

Many fans, however, wanted to remind people that Jennifer is probably doing JUST fine — in fact, she's thriving.

"Somewhere Jennifer Garner is living her best life, secure in the knowledge that none of that is her concern," tweeted one fan.

PLUS, don't forget that Jen has BEEN dating cutie CEO John Miller and the two seem totally in love and happy.

In new reports from "Page Six", a source gave a bit more intel into exactly when and how Jennifer Garner found out about the wedding.

“Ben did tell Jen about the wedding, but I’m told that it was only Friday at the earliest. It was very, very minimally planned in advance and was largely spur-of-the-moment," the source explained.

"Violet stayed home because she’s extremely loyal to her mom,” the "well-placed" Hollywood source explained.

As for why the pair tied the knot now, the Hollywood source added: “[Jennifer] has been ready to get married since the night that Ben proposed."

"She wanted to lock this down and remove any chance for cold feet ASAP!" the source added.

Well, after twenty years, I don't blame her for wanting to seal the deal as soon as possible.
