Few celebrity couples have captured the public’s fascination like Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck. They were iconic in the early 2000s tabloid scene, and their reunion two decades later thrilled fans and romantics alike. Amid the excitement, however, Jennifer Garner, Affleck’s ex-wife, was largely overlooked.

Affleck and Garner, who divorced in 2018 after separating in 2015, share three children: Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 10. Garner began dating businessman John Miller around six months before her divorce was finalized.

John Miller, a private individual, is an attorney and the CEO of the fast food chain CaliBurger and its parent company, CaliGroup. Previously, he was the VP of intellectual property at Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals. Miller, who was married to violinist Caroline Campbell from 2005 to 2014, finalized his divorce a month after Garner’s separation from Affleck. Miller and Campbell share two children, Violet and Quest.

Garner and Miller, together for five years, maintain a low profile, preferring a life away from the public eye. “She loves how little he cares for the limelight,” a source told Us Weekly. “They don’t seek out media attention or obsess over public events; it’s just not their style.”

Despite a brief split between 2020 and 2021 due to differing views on marriage, the couple’s bond remains strong. “John is attentive without being overbearing,” said another source. “He gives Jen space but is always there for her when needed. They enjoy spontaneous getaways together.”

When Affleck and Lopez married in 2022, the media speculated about Garner’s reaction. She was seen enjoying herself with Miller, showing she had no concerns about her ex’s new marriage. In January 2023, Entertainment Tonight reported on Affleck “happily chatting with John,” demonstrating a friendly dynamic between Garner’s current and former partners.

Garner and Miller have become more open about their relationship, often seen holding hands or sharing affectionate moments. “Jen is more comfortable and secure with John now,” a source shared. “She’s proud to be with him.”

Friends say the couple has discussed marriage but are in no hurry. Garner is happy with their current dynamic, enjoying their relationship without needing a formal label. “Jen and John have a really special relationship,” an insider added. “After her high-profile marriage with Affleck, she appreciates being with someone who isn’t a celebrity.”
