Chris was taken to St. Joseph Candler children’s hospital in Savannah. According to Daily Mail’s source, Chris fell off the dock and cut her leg. Her injuries were ‘not serious’ and she was spotted leaving the hospital later in a wheelchair.
Ben and Jennifer, who tied the knot in a surprise Las Vegas ceremony last month, got married for the second time in Georgia in presence of their friends and family on Saturday. The weekend-long affair is planned by interior designer and event planner Colin Cowie, with lifestyle guru Jay Shetty presiding over the actual ceremony. Celebrities such as Matt Damon, Jimmy Kimmel, Ben’s brother Casey Affleck and Drea de Matteo attended the wedding
Their children, Jennifer Lopez’s 14-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony and Ben’s kids Violet, Seraphina and Samuel with his ex-Jennifer Garner, also attended the wedding. Jennifer wore a Ralph Lauren outfit for the big day.
Ben and Jennifer surprised fans in July when they revealed they wed at A Little White Chapel in Las Vegas. The high-profile pair who met in 2001 when they both starred in the movie Gigli, embarked on a very public romance and got engaged the following year. The wedding was postponed and in 2004 they called it quits.
Ben went on to marry Alias star Jennifer Garner, with whom he shares three children, Violet, 16, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 10. They finalized their divorce in 2018 and he went on to date SNL producer Lindsay Shookus and Cuban actor Ana de Armas.
Jennifer married singer Marc Anthony in June 2004, with whom she shares twins, Emme and Max, born in 2008. The pair eventually divorced. And in May 2021, Ben and Jennifer sparked dating rumours when they were spotted holding hands while on vacation in Montana.
