    I met both of them seperately on different times. Micheal is very cute in person!

    Congrats !! They make a beautiful couple :-))

  • elisa

    His bride is beautiful, I am sure they’ll have beautiful children; Jennifer Garner ended up doing him a favor by leaving him, now poor Ben is stuck with her for the long run LOL.

  • Mother knows best

    I knew he’d find the right person for him…. he kissed way to many frogs before finding his princess.

  • hag

    i remember MV being sooo in love w JG and she breaking his heart. now look what she has……basically single mother status as ben affleck is only on for photo ops around the time of his movie release. and blind items galore about the state of her “marriage”. they will be releasing a statement soon. i am so glad MV has moved on and found a woman who loves him and whom he loves.

  • Kerri

    They will probably end up divorcing like the rest of the people in hollyweird. I mean Hollywood. Nothing ever lasts.

  • Grandma of Four

    GREAT news! Wishing them happiness!

  • Casey

    Whats with the hate of JG? They dated, it didnt work, theyve both moved on to greater happiness with other people. The fans seemed to take it much worse than they did. Theyre not their characters from Alias, they are allowed to be with others. Congrats to MV, I hope their happy for ages to come and dont succumb to Hollyweird

  • liz

    argh ! I really really don’t like her ! A blond , big breasts , young ? Really ?
    We all know what it means : not gonna last !

    I prefered him with jen garner !

    Anyway , as long as he’s happy .

    Congrats !

    Michael is not paying tribute to Sting, by using Sumner as his surname — His full name is Michael SUMNER Georges Vartan…

    @Liz: Begone, hater, before somebody drops a house on you!! She is statuesque and quite lovely…I think she resembles Gwyneth Paltrow or maybe Linda McCartney (who, BTW, was married to Sir Paul for 29 years)…
    There are long-lasting marriages in Hollywood, people who found diamonds among the plastic…
    “Your “big breasts” comment shows off what a jealous, small-minded person you are…
    And she’s 29/30 years old, she’s not a girl — Do grow up!!!

  • Jordyn

    Good looking couple. Best wishes.

    JanetCoop, that´s right, she´s 30.

    BTW, You, JanetCoop, are older than Lauren´s mother. Maybe it´s time for you to finally grow up and stop your obsession over a married man, who is much younger than you. You´re a grandmother, lady.

    I looked at the pictures through the link that Sunshine put up, Lauren looks beautiful and they look very very happy together! Congratulations!

  • Rambaldi

    I wish them every happiness but I’m pretty sure he has never gotten over Jennifer Garner and probably never will. Everybody has one that got away LOL. He must have waited to tie the knot until he was absolutely positive that he couldn’t have Garner back but why he would even want to is a bit of a head-scratcher. Best of luck to the newlyweds!
