A source has revealed Jennifer Garner discovered her ex-husband Ben Affleck was marrying Jennifer Lopez just one day before their nuptials.

Speaking to Page Six, the source said she was told about the surprise Vegas wedding on Friday, adding JLo wanted to get married quickly before Ben could get cold feet.

"Ben did tell Jen about the wedding, but I'm told that it was only Friday at the earliest," the source revealed.

"It was very, very minimally planned in advance and was largely spur-of-the-moment."

JLo wrote in her OnTheJLo newsletter their children were in attendance, but the source said JLo's 14-year-old child Emme and Ben's 13-year-old daughter Sera were the only ones who joined them.

The Hollywood source added Jennifer and Ben's 16-year-old daughter Violet was "extremely loyal" to her mum and opted to stay home.

During Ben and JLo's wedding, Jennifer visited Lake Tahoe in California, seemingly unfazed as she posted photos on Instagram of her smiling on a bike ride.
