‘You know sometimes it doesn’t work out. I think it’s crazy that people change their name,’ she went on.

A source close to the on/off couple – who previously dated between 2002-2004 – confirmed to the site: ‘They did, indeed, get hitched and the license is a signal they are now man and wife.’

It’s the second time down the aisle for Ben, who has three children – daughter Violet, 16; daughter Seraphina, 13; and son Samuel, 10 – from his decade-long marriage to Jennifer Garner, which ended in 2018.

Jennifer has 14-year-old fraternal twins – daughter Emme Maribel Muñiz and son Maximilian David Muñiz – from her third marriage to Marc Anthony, which ended in 2011 after seven years.
