For their impending wedding in Georgia, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have chosen Jay Shetty, one of the most well-known motivational speakers and life coaches in the world.
Page Six revealed exclusively on Thursday that the “Let’s Get Loud” singer, 53, personally chose the former monk, 34, of British descent, to marry her and the Oscar winner, 50, this weekend.
Following the on-again couple’s covert Las Vegas wedding in July, Shetty may have received the award due to the information provided below.
Shetty, who is of Indian heritage, attended business school in the UK. While there, he met a monk who inspired him to spend four summers living the life of a Vedic monk at an ashram, a monastery, in Mumbai.
When he eventually made it back to the corporate world, media mogul Arianna Huffington engaged him to create videos for the New York-based Huffington Post about relationships, wellness, mental health, and purpose.
He started his own podcast, “On Purpose with Jay Shetty,” in February 2019. In this podcast, he speaks with famous people and other accomplished individuals about what they think their life’s work is.
“I wanted to create a conversation that went beyond the athlete, beyond the celebrity, beyond the personality, the profile, the persona, and to me, that essence that everyone has, that truth that everyone has is their purpose,” he said on “The Build Series” in May 2019. “It’s what we’re ready to die for and what we live for.”
Think Like a Monk: Train Your Mind for Peace and Purpose Every Day is a New York Times best-selling book by Shetty that was published in 2020. According to his Instagram bio, he also has more than 11 million followers and serves as the chief executive officer of the Calm app.
Shetty has experience getting married because he has been wed for more than six years. In April 2016, he and Radhi Devlukia-Shetty got married.
The 32-year-old vegan cook frequently guests on her husband’s show, and they also produced their own brand of tea called Sama Tea.
Shetty thanked his wife for her support during his career in an anniversary post he sent in April 2020.
He posted a photo from their wedding day on Facebook with the remark, “When I met you 7 years ago, I had no plan, money, or thoughts about what I was going to do, just tonnes of enthusiasm.
“You believed in me, stuck by me and have helped me become a better man through your love, support and kindness. We’ve done SO much in the last 4 years, so much change and so much uncertainty but you’ve never made me feel that you don’t trust me or believe in me!”
He added, “Thank you for always staying grounded in every circumstance. Thank you for reminding me of what’s truly important. Thank you for always being sincere, genuine and authentic in everything you do!”
