It is said that Jennifer’s longtime close friend Jay Shetty will be doing the honors by officiating their second wedding.
Here’s everything you need to know about the podcaster and J. Lo pal who will be re-introducing Mr. and Mrs. Affleck to the world.
He is very familiar with celebrities
It’s no accident that Jay is so close to Jennifer. He regularly interviews major names on his popular podcast On Purpose.
Jen herself has appeared on his show, and so have many other celebs. Gwyneth Paltrow, the late Kobe Bryant, and Will Smith have also appeared on the show.
Jay is quotable
The popular internet guru is widely quoted via social media. But in 2020, he was accused of plagiarizing quotes. According to his Wikipedia, he deleted over a hundred allegedly plagiarized posts from his Instagram account.
He is officiated weddings for Jennifer before
But it’s not what you think. The Selena actress reportedly asked Jay to marry four couples onstage during a promotional event for her February 2022 film Marry Me, per Page Six.
“When Jennifer Lopez asks you to officiate 4 weddings and speak on the power of love during her Marry Me Special Performance you say yes,” he wrote via social media at the time.
“What an incredible experience it was seeing 4 beautiful couples take their vows and having Jennifer Lopez and Maluma as their wedding singers! Their stories and journeys brought tears to everyone’s eyes and I’m so grateful I got to be a part of it.”
He is officiated other celebrity weddings
Bennifer 2.0 won’t be the first celebrity wedding that Jay has officiated, either. He reportedly officiated Lily Collins to Charlie McDowell.
He is an accomplished author
Jay is also widely known for his 2020 New York Times bestseller Think Like a Monk. The Simon & Schuster book also landed on the bestseller lists of Amazon and the Wall Street Journal.
