Ben Affleck looks exhausted as he returns to LA after eloping with Jennifer Lopez

Ben Affleck looked ready for a nap as he was spotted for the first time since tying the knot with Jennifer Lopez in a surprise Las Vegas ceremony.

The actor, 49, was seen returning to Los Angeles and flashed his brand new wedding band as he drove to the home of his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner, 50.

Affleck appeared tired as he yawned while waiting at a red light, following the weekend nuptials which took place at the world famous A Little White Wedding Chapel.

The tired movie star sported a purple T-shirt for the drive, and was seen resting his head against the car seat. 

Meanwhile Ben’s bride, 52, appeared to be in a fantastic mood, as she took to Instagram on Monday with a throwback video of herself giving an energetic performance to a delighted crowd.

‘Monday mood,’ the pop superstar captioned the lively clip, which saw her dancing around in a skimpy white outfit with several backup dancers.

Ben’s outing comes following news that despite their Saturday ceremony, the couple are planning on having a big wedding with friends and family in the near future, according to People and TMZ.

But the actors, who first dated 20 years ago and only rekindled their relationship last year with an engagement in April, do not yet have a honeymoon in mind, it was claimed.

People shared on Monday that the elopement is just the start of Jennifer and Ben’s wedding season.

People did not name when or where Bennifer’s second wedding will take place.

But TMZ shared on Monday morning the big bash will take place at Ben’s home in the coastal town of Riceboro, Georgia which is just outside of Savannah.

The two-story mansion has four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. There are also two other smaller properties on the grounds with additional bedrooms. 

And the site added that the event will take place in the next few ‘weeks.’

It was also claimed that Jennifer recently flew to the Georgia house to look it over and talk plans with her manager Benny Medina. Ben was also believe to be on site.

And a splashy honeymoon is not in the cards just now: ‘They don’t have a honeymoon planned yet. Jennifer says that every day with Ben is a honeymoon,’ the source told the site.

‘Ever since they started dating again, Jennifer has truly believed that this is it. She is looking forward to growing old with Ben,’ added the insider.
