In the ever-evolving dynamics of Hollywood relationships, a notable development has emerged in the lives of Jennifer Garner and her ex-husband, Ben Affleck. Garner, who has been in a steady relationship with John Miller since 2018, shares a harmonious connection with Ben Affleck, who has expressed respect for her current partner.
This amicable scenario comes years after Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, 51, concluded their decade-long marriage in 2015. Following their split, Affleck found love again, tying the knot with Jennifer Lopez in July 2022. Meanwhile, Garner's bond with Miller has been going strong since they started dating in 2018.
Sources close to the situation reveal a unique friendship between Affleck and Miller. "Ben is super down-to-earth, and so is John,” a source disclosed to Us Weekly. "They have a mutual respect for each other and are always very friendly with one another”.
This respect indicates the maturity with which both men handle their relationship, considering their connections to Garner.
Blended Families Unite
The focus on family has been a central theme in these relationships. Garner and Affleck co-parent their three children – Samuel, 11, Violet, 17, and Seraphina, 14 – gracefully and cooperatively.
Miller, too, has children from his previous marriage with Caroline Campbell. Similarly, Lopez, 54, shares twins Max and Emme, 15, with her ex-husband, Marc Anthony. As these families blend and evolve, sources indicate that Affleck and Miller have developed "a lot of mutual admiration and respect." This positive development is crucial as the group works together to integrate their families seamlessly.
Adding another layer to this interconnected web of relationships is the friendship between Garner and Lopez. “Over the past year or two, they’ve become close and have gotten to know each other much better,” an insider revealed to Us Weekly in May. "Both of them are incredible mothers and always put their children’s needs first."
