Amidst the whirlwind of attention surrounding Ben Affleck and his recent reunion with Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Garner has been discreetly exploring a romance away from the public eye.
The 51-year-old Garner and businessman John Miller, who prefer to keep a low profile as a couple, have reportedly been in an on-and-off relationship for some time.

Post her 2018 divorce from Ben Affleck, fans weren’t particularly surprised to learn about his renewed connection with “Jenny from the Block”.
While the world closely monitored Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s rekindled romance, resulting in a joyous marriage and the release of J.Lo’s song “Can’t Get Enough” dedicated to Affleck, much remains unknown about Garner’s new partner, John Miller.
Rumors of Garner and Miller dating had circulated about six months before their formal divorce from Affleck in 2018.
Following their split in 2015, the former Hollywood power couple has been co-parenting their three children – Violet (17), Seraphina (14), and Samuel (10).
The enigmatic man, who is he? Miller, born in 1978, is a businessman and lawyer serving as the CEO of CaliBurger, a fast-food restaurant, and its parent company CaliGroup. He previously held the position of Vice President of Intellectual Property at Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals.
About a month after Garner’s divorce, Miller, previously married to American violinist Caroline Campbell from 2005 to 2014, finalized his own divorce. He has a son named Quest and a daughter named Violet with Campbell.
The couple, dating for five years, consciously chose to avoid the celebrity limelight that usually accompanies someone like Garner to safeguard their relationship.
She appreciates his indifference to the spotlight and the Hollywood culture, quite different from Ben and J.Lo’s approach, a source informed Us Weekly. “They prefer being a regular, low-profile couple and don’t seek validation from others to know they are meant for each other”, continued the anonymous source. It’s not about belittling others; it’s simply not their style.
After a brief break from August 2020 to the spring of 2021, Miller and Garner resumed their relationship.
At that time, a source mentioned: “He was ready for marriage, and she just couldn’t commit”.
Friends gushing over the couple claim that Garner and Miller share a mutually beneficial relationship, bringing out the best in each other.
“John is so smitten and caring, but not in an overbearing way”, a source claimed. “When Jen wants space, he provides it to her, but he also supports her when things get tough or she feels like doing something impulsive. They have taken some amazing vacations together, which is one of their main accomplishments.”
Keeping it private Public curiosity grew regarding Garner’s reaction to her ex-husband’s marriage to Lopez in July 2022.
Garner and Miller’s frequent appearances together in paparazzi shots reassured fans. Unperturbed by Ben Affleck’s elopement with Lopez in Las Vegas, they were seen smiling and enjoying each other’s company.
Entertainment Tonight even released a story and pictures of Affleck “happily chatting with John” in January 2023.
“Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are proving that exes can get along just fine!” reported the media source. When Jennifer and her boyfriend John Miller got to their house, Ben was spotted grinning and having a conversation with John. The discreet pair was then observed shopping in Montecito Village in Santa Barbara.
Going with the flow The couple is gradually becoming more comfortable revealing their relationship to the public, frequently spotted together expressing their affection through embraces, hand-holding, and early morning jogs.
According to a source, Jen and John are much more at ease and secure with one another, so she’s not quite as shy as she once was. “She takes pride in flaunting him.”
Another insider shared in November 2023 that Miller and Garner are “in a great place” now. They used to maintain a low profile, but they’ve both grown to feel secure in their relationship and how things have unfolded, according to the insider.
On her 50th birthday, the couple achieved a significant milestone by gathering their relatives for a food drive.
Despite being open to marriage, Garner and Miller are not rushing to combine their families. For now, she is “perfectly happy cherishing and enjoying what they have…without a formal label”.
Miller is content to “go with the flow”, the source continues, noting that Garner has been setting the pace.
Another insider said: “Jen and John have a really special relationship.” “She truly enjoys being with someone who isn’t a celebrity after spending so much of her [her marriage with Affleck] in the spotlight.”
It’s exciting to see Jennifer Garner back in the dating scene, and we eagerly anticipate the development of their romance.
