During his wedding reception with Jennifer Lopez last month, Ben Affleck enjoyed a tender moment with his mother.
Christopher Anne Boldt joined over 100 friends and family on August 20 at Ben’s 87-acre compound in Georgia to celebrate her son and new daughter-in-law.
Boldt can be seen with her arm around her older son (she is also the mother of Affleck’s sibling Casey Affleck) as the Oscar-winning actor kissed her forehead in a photo featured in Thursday’s edition of Lopez’s On The JLo newsletter. Ben, 50, is dressed in a linen vest, slacks, and a white button-down shirt.
One day before the ceremony, Boldt was treated at a local hospital after reportedly injuring her leg.
Good things are worth waiting for,” he wrote alongside a throwback image of himself, Ben and Lopez, 53, walking in Los Angeles in August 2002. “Here is to twists and turns, new beginnings, and finding new reservoirs of old love.”
“Welcome to the family. Get ready for some real dysfunction! Kidding. I am kidding,” Casey continued.
Closing the post, the Oscar winner wrote, “Jen, you are a gem. We love you so much!!!” with a red heart emoji.
Their celebration in Georgia drew some A-list names, including Ben’s best friend Matt Damon and wife Luciana Barroso. Top Hollywood talent agent Patrick Whitesell and his wife, model/actress Pia Miller, were also in attendance.
In Thursday’s newsletter, Lopez said she and Ben “laughed the night before about getting married again at our age.” She explained, “We had both been married before and we aren’t exactly kids any more but somehow now seemed like the only age that made sense.”
