A steady love! Jennifer Garner and friend John Miller may not have plans to tie the knot any time soon, but their romantic bond is still strong.
“Jennifer adores John and still sees a long-term future with him. She doesn’t feel like slowing down, spending less time together or anything like that,” a source reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us weekly. “She’s just decided after much thought that she’s just not in a rush to run down the aisle just yet and she’s perfectly happy basking and enjoying what they have — for now — without a formal label.”
Us news broke in October 2018 that the pair had been dating for six months. “Jen brings out the best in John, and he’s probably the happiest he’s ever been. It’s a loving, healthy relationship,” an insider revealed at the time.
Garner, 50, was previously married to am Affleck, from whom she separated in 2015 after 10 years of marriage. The exes, who finalized their divorce three years later, share three children: Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 10. Miller, 45, for his part, is a father of two with his ex-wife, Caroline Campbell. Affleck, 50, meanwhile tied the knot with Jennifer Lopez in July 2022 and became stepfather to the 53-year-old Selena star’s 14-year-old twins, Emme and Max, who she shares with ex-husband Mark Antony.
Garner and Miller’s children first met on the 13 on the way to 30 star’s 50th birthday in April 2022.
“John’s kids finally met Jen’s kids,” a source told exclusively Us at that moment. “Many children and family were invited, including John’s children, his parents, his brother and his [brother’s] female.”
Three months later, another insider revealed that the Invention of lying actress and the businessman “spent more time” with each other’s children and “became close” as a blended family.
“They meet at each other’s homes — even for a quick glass of wine or for a quiet dinner away from prying eyes,” the insider shared, noting that Garner and her beau prefer to keep their relationship “very private.”
Despite the recent bond with each other’s children, the Alias alum and Miller haven’t always been on the same wavelength when it comes to the nature of their relationship. August 2020, Us confirmed that the couple had given up, with a source revealing that CaliBurger’s CEO was “ready to get married” while Garner “just couldn’t commit.”
However, by May 2021, the lovebirds had rekindled their romance.
“Jen and John are back,” a source revealed at the time. “It started a few weeks ago.”
