Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck are still on cloud nine after their surprise wedding in Las Vegas.

The lovebirds celebrated, Page Six is told, with pizza and Diet Coke on a private jet back to LA in the early hours of Sunday morning.

And while J.Lo posted on her OnTheJLo newsletter Sunday that they were joined by their kids at the shock nuptials at a drive-through wedding chapel, Page Six is told that the only ones in attendance were Lopez’s child, Emme, 14, and Affleck’s Sera, 13.

They have five kids in total between them. Emme has a twin brother, Max, and Affleck also shares Violet, 16, and Sam, 10, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

While they were tying the knot, Garner Garner, was soaking up the sun in Lake Tahoe over the weekend — and gave no clue as to how she was feeling about it all.

“Ben did tell Jen about the wedding, but I’m told that it was only Friday at the earliest. It was very, very minimally planned in advance and was largely spur of the moment. Violet stayed home because she’s extremely loyal to her mom,” one well-placed Hollywood source told The Post.

As for why now, the Hollywood source added: “[Lopez] has been ready to get married since the night that Ben proposed. She wanted to lock this down and remove any chance for cold feet ASAP!”

Garner, 50, and Affleck, 49, were married from 2005 to 2018. She has maintained her silence as her ex has enjoyed publicized romances with “Saturday Night Live” producer Lindsay Shookus and Cuban actress Ana de Armas, who recently revealed that she quit LA over the attention surrounding their relationship. She told Elle magazine: “It became a little bit too much. There’s no escape. There’s no way out.” She’s now living in NYC with her Tinder exec boyfriend Paul Boukadakis.

But Garner has also stood by the Oscar winner through his battles with addiction. Friends were left furious on her behalf back in December after Affleck told shock jock Howard Stern he would still probably be drinking if he was still married to Garner.

At the time, one industry insider who knows both Affleck and Garner well told The Post: “It’s disgusting … Jen has been the only one picking him up time and time again when he’s done horrible things — fallen off the wagon or worse.”

Another industry source told The Post on Monday: “Ben’s comments were ridiculous and you could see that fans of Jen were so upset too. But, of course, she has never wanted him to be anything other than happy and sober and I’m sure she wishes him well [on his new marriage].”

A rep for Garner could not be reached for comment.

Garner is currently filming the Apple+ thriller “The Last Thing He Told Me,” based on the best-selling book by Laura Dave, which follows a wife whose husband disappears.

One thing is clear: J.Lo hopes this is her happy ending. As those who know her well previously told Page Six, Affleck is the love of her life.

After posing for photos in a pink Cadillac, the 52-year-old singer and actress wrote: “Stick around long enough and maybe you’ll find the best moment of your life in a drive through in Las Vegas at twelve thirty in the morning in the tunnel of love drive through, with your kids and the one you’ll spend forever with. Love is a great thing, maybe the best of things — and worth waiting for.” She signed off as Mrs. Jennifer Lynn Affleck.

Reps for the newlyweds declined to comment on who attended the wedding.

The Hollywood source said that Lopez and Affleck will host a party to celebrate with friends and family — but not another wedding: “There may be another white dress, but they won’t be saying their vows again.”
