Jennifer Lopez has shared details on her Las Vegas wedding to Ben Affleck in a new interview.

The songstress, 53, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live the to promote her new film Shotgun Wedding, when she was asked about her own impromptu nuptials.

Lopez and Affleck, 50, surprised fans after they got married at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas last July.

A month later, the pair had an extravagant wedding ceremony at Affleck’s estate in Savannah, Georgia, where they were joined by friends and family.

Lopez told host Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday that planning for the wedding in Georgia was “so stressful”, and so Affleck suggested they travel to Vegas and get married beforehand.

“We were planning to get married in August in Savannah, the family was going to be there, everyone’s going to be there and it was so stressful,” Lopez said.

“20 years ago, we were supposed to get married… and it kind of all fell apart back then and this time, a month before, I absolutely had a little PTSD and I was like, ‘Is this happening?’

“We were so happy, but I just felt the wedding was so stressful and one day Ben just said, ‘F*** it, let’s just go to Vegas and get married tonight.’”

The couple threw caution to the wind and agreed to go for it – on the same day Lopez had show rehearsals and a wedding planning meeting, she revealed.

“[Affleck] was like, ‘Go to rehearsal when you get back here I’m going to have everything all set up,’” Lopez recalled.

She went on to share that three of their children were witnesses, and described the Las Vegas ceremony as “the best night of our lives”.

Lopez then described the night of the wedding, saying that she and Affleck waited in line at the chapel with two other couples just before midnight.

“They said, ‘Do you need Elvis?’ and we were like, ‘No, we don’t need the Elvis impersonator, just whoever is there who can legally marry us, that’s who we will take,’” the Get Right singer said.

Kimmel later jokingly asked why he was not invited to their wedding the next month.

Lopez responded: “I could say that same thing – aren’t you and Ben like really good friends?”

“Well, that’s what I thought,” Kimmel replied.
