Jennifer Garner is notoriously private when it comes to her romantic relationship—which is why fans took notice when the actress and her boyfriend, John Miller, engaged in PDA during a rare public outing.
On Saturday, Nov. 4, the couple was photographed taking a stroll while holding hands in Santa Monica, Calif.
During their outing—which included lunch and errands—Garner, 51, wore a gray sweater with a printed, black mini-skirt and tights, black loafers and sunglasses. Meanwhile, Miller, 45, donned a blue plaid button-down shirt and jeans.
Garner’s mild PDA sends a message to those who might question her relationship with Miller, as the couple does not often appear in public. Although they reportedly split in 2020, the recent photos of the pair suggest they are going strong today.
The Alias actress and CaliGroup CEO have been dating since 2018, roughly three years after she and Ben Affleck announced their divorce. Garner and Affleck have three children, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel. Meanwhile, Miller has two kids with his ex-wife, Caroline Campbell.
“They have a very special relationship. It’s never been the easiest one though since they both have families,” a source told People in February. “They took a long break from dating, but Jen is very happy that they are back together.”
In April, Miller attended the Los Angeles premiere of Garner’s show, The Last Thing He Told Me, although they did not walk the red carpet together.
Meanwhile, in August, a source told Entertainment Tonight that Garner and Miller were “doing great” and that Affleck (who remarried Jennifer Lopez) supported their relationship.
“Ben is very supportive of Jennifer dating and just wants her to be happy,” the source said. “It’s important for Ben to have a solid relationship with John. Ben is so laid back and gets along with everyone, and John is one of those people too.”
Not that Affleck needs to support Garner’s choice in men, of course—but it likely makes co-parenting easier.
