After her 2018 divorce from Ben Affleck, it wasn’t surprising to see Affleck reconnect with Jennifer Lopez. The public followed their rekindled romance closely, including their marriage and J.Lo’s new single, “Can’t Get Enough,” dedicated to Affleck. Meanwhile, Garner’s relationship with John Miller remained under the radar.

Reports suggest Garner and Miller started dating six months before her divorce was finalized. Despite splitting in 2015, Garner and Affleck continue to co-parent their three children: Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 10.

So, who is John Miller? Born in 1978, Miller is a lawyer and the CEO of CaliBurger and its parent company, CaliGroup. He previously served as the VP of intellectual property at Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals. Miller was married to violinist Caroline Campbell from 2005 to 2014, and they share two children, Violet and Quest.

Garner and Miller, who have been dating for five years, prefer to stay out of the limelight. “She loves how little he cares for the limelight or the whole Hollywood scene… Very different from Ben and J.Lo’s relationship in that way,” a source told Us Weekly. “They’re happier being a regular, under-the-radar couple and don’t need anyone else’s validation to know they’re meant to be together.”

After a brief split from August 2020 to spring 2021, Garner and Miller have been going strong. “He was ready for marriage, and she just couldn’t commit,” a source said at the time.

Friends say Garner and Miller bring out the best in each other. “John is so smitten and caring, but not in an overbearing way… He gives Jen space when she needs it but is there for her when she’s in the mood for something spontaneous,” a source shared. The couple enjoys spending time together, often going on getaways.

In July 2022, Garner and Miller were seen together several times, looking happy despite Affleck’s marriage to Lopez. In January 2023, Entertainment Tonight reported that Affleck was seen chatting happily with Miller, indicating a cordial relationship between Garner’s ex-husband and her current boyfriend.

Garner and Miller have become more comfortable sharing their relationship publicly, often seen together holding hands, jogging, or sharing a kiss. “Jen’s not nearly as shy as she once was with John because they’re a lot more comfortable and secure with each other,” a source noted. “She’s proud to show him off.”

By November 2023, another insider told Us Weekly that Garner and Miller are “in a great place,” feeling secure in their relationship. On her 50th birthday, they celebrated by bringing their children and families together for a food drive, though they’re not rushing into blending their families or marriage.

Friends say Garner and Miller are content with their current arrangement, enjoying what they have without needing a formal label. “Jen and John have a really special relationship,” another insider added. “After having so much of her [marriage with Affleck] in the spotlight, she really enjoys being with someone who isn’t a celebrity.”

It’s heartening to see Jennifer Garner find love again, and we look forward to watching their relationship grow.
