Ben Affleck may regret divorcing Jennifer Garner, but she was happy after reuniting with John Miller.
In January 2020, a source informed Us Weekly that the CaliGroup CEO “very much” intended to marry the actress. Seven months later, Us revealed the couple had peacefully split.
In May 2021, a source informed Us exclusively that Garner and Miller were officially “back on.”
Garner was previously married to Affleck for ten years before they divorced in 2015. “After much thinking and careful deliberation, we have made the tough decision to divorce,” the couple said at the time. We move forward with love, friendship, and a commitment to co-parenting our children, whose privacy we ask to be respected. This is our sole comment on a personal topic. Thank you for knowing.”
Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel are their kids.
Affleck, a source told Us in July 2016, “feels he can’t live without Jen.”
“If Ben wanted them together,” the person stated.
After the couple divorced in October 2018, Affleck was open about their sad parting.
“My biggest life regret is this divorce,” she told The New York Times in February 2020. “Shame is poisonous. Shame has no benefits. The toxicity of poor self-worth and self-loathing is merely stewing.”
Affleck, who has been outspoken about his battles with substance usage, said his drinking didn’t help.
“I started drinking more and more as my marriage crumbled. 2015, 2016” he informed the paper. “My drinking exacerbated marital issues.”
In the same month, Affleck claimed he would “love to go back and change” aspects of his marriage.
“I’ve made some large and some small mistakes,” he said. “I wish I could alter everything but I can’t.”
Affleck dated Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus from 2017 to 2019 and was linked to Playboy model Shauna Sexton before snatching up Ana de Armas in a flash.
Here’s what we know about Garner and Miller’s romance:
When It Started
This was revealed in October 2018 by Us Weekly. “Jen brings out the best in John, and he is arguably his happiest. Love and healthy relationships are rare,” a source told Us then.
Miller was still legally married to Caroline Campbell when he met Garner. After divorcing in June 2011, the parents of two children reunited in February 2012. In October 2014, they divorced again.
Miller and Campbell’s divorce was finalised in November 2018.

How John Feels About Ben

A second source told Us Miller is Affleck’s mentor. It was the finest thing that happened to Ben and Jen in a long time, claimed the source in August 2019. “Ben likes John. Jen and Ben’s kids have played with John’s girls.
While their kids have met, insiders say they are still taking it gently. “Jen appears quite happy,” a source remarked in January 2020. “John adores her, but he understands she can’t be rushed.”
Not So Fast
Less than a year after they split, Us exclusively verified in May 2021 that they were rekindling their romance. “Jen and John are back,” a source said. “A couple weeks ago.”
Bonding With the Kids
After their spring reunion, the two are “really going strong and getting pretty serious” in September 2021, an insider told Us.
Miller’s two girls, whom he shares with ex-wife Caroline Campbell, will see a lot more of Garner’s three. Source: “They’re spending a lot more time together.” In the future, they plan to include their children more in their relationship.
It’s Getting Serious
An informant told Us in October 2021 that the couple’s acquaintances expect an engagement soon. “Jen and John mean business.” Their future together is set in stone. They took their time to commit.”
In addition to Miller’s life outside of Hollywood, the insider said. According to the insider, Jen hasn’t been this happy in a long time, and she feels comfortable and secure with John. “He’s a big success in his own right, and she admires his maturity and balance. Jen needed a mate as grounded and peaceful as John.
