Jennifer Garner Reportedly Kept 3 Kids Away from Boyfriend’s Two for Years until One Weekend Changed That

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck may have called it quits, but the couple remains on good terms regarding their children’s wellbeing. Garner prioritizes her kids and reportedly did not integrate them into her relationship with her boyfriend, John Miller, who is also a father of two.

In 2015, after a decade of being married, Hollywood stars Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck ended their union. While going through a divorce was no easy feat, the couple ensured their children, Violet Anne, Seraphina Rose, and Samuel, were in a healthy environment.

Born on December 1, 2005, Violet was nine when her parents called it quits. Since her younger years, Violet has maintained a close bond with her father, which Garner often doted about.

Four years later, in 2009, the duo welcomed Seraphina. By then, the couple’s friend, Bradley Cooper, spoke highly of Garner and Affleck’s parenthood. In particular, he highlighted the “13 Going On 30” star’s ability to run a family. Seraphina was only six years old when her parents announced their divorce.

Meanwhile, Samuel was still a toddler at three years old when his parents divorced. Born on February 27, 2012, Samuel is the only boy among his siblings. He also grew up close to his father, with whom he shares the same interest in baseball.

Since becoming parents, Garner and Affleck actively worked to shield their children from the media and paparazzi. As a protective mom, Garner joined the likes of Halle Berry in pushing to pass a bill that prohibited unauthorized paparazzi photos of kids. She is also vocal about her parenting style and keeping her children away from social media.

In December 2021, Garner appeared on “Good Morning America” and shared her experience as a mom to growing kids without social media. According to the Hollywood veteran, she challenged Violet, Seraphina, and Samuel to show her evidence that social media is beneficial for children.

It has been nearly a decade since their separation, yet Garner and Affleck continue to make their co-parenting work for the kids. In 2022, Affleck gave his children a new stepmother, his former lover, Jennifer Lopez.

Jennifer and John reportedly began their relationship in 2018 and made their first public appearance at the “Dear Evan Hansen” play in Los Angeles. Despite being famous, Garner kept her relationship under wraps.

The pair rekindled their romance in 2021 after first being engaged in 2003. They had a private wedding with the actress looking beautiful in two dresses, of which she was saving one for the special occasion. Following their nuptials, Lopez changed her legal name to carry her husband’s family name, a decision some fans disagreed on.

She also embarked on a new journey, raising a blended family with Affeck’s kids in their $60.8 million mansion. The two Jennifers are, fortunately, on good terms. As loving and dedicated mothers, they know how to connect well with children. A source revealed:

“[They] are very cordial, and they have a very healthy and functioning relationship.”

Jennifer Garner Is in a Longterm Relationship with John Miller

While Affleck got his happy ending with Lopez, his ex-wife is also enjoying her relationship with John Miller. Garner and Miller reportedly began their relationship in 2018 and made their first public appearance at the “Dear Evan Hansen” play in Los Angeles. Despite being famous, Garner kept her relationship under wraps.

The couple was spotted on a date the following year at Santa Monica but reportedly called it quits in 2020. They allegedly reconciled in 2021 and were seen out and about in New York later that year.

Since being linked to Garner, fans have been interested in Miller’s life. He was born in 1978 and studied economics at the University of Redlands, California. He later attended Stanford to obtain a law degree.

He became Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals’ second employee in 2004, where he took charge of the company’s flexible electronic devices. He was VP of intellectual property and became his own lawyer.

On the startup platform, F6S, Miller described himself as an “inventor and entrepreneur focused on how new technologies will impact the retail and restaurant industries.” While not involved in the entertainment industry, Miller is accomplished in his own field.

Miller also founded Cali Group and stands as the Chairman and CEO of the holding company. Cali Group owns the restaurant chain CaliBurger and has positions in technology companies.

Besides his business career, Miller co-authored “The Handbook of Nanotechnology: Business, Policy, and Intellectual Property Law” in 2018. Like Garner, he was also once married with two children. He married violinist Caroline Campbell in 2005 and had two children, Violet and Quest. However, they filed for divorce in 2011.

Jennifer Garner Reportedly Kept Her Three Kids from John Miller’s Two

While Garner started a romance with Miller, she reportedly kept her kids out of their relationship first. “They are casually dating, but it’s not serious,” an insider said in 2018. “He hasn’t met her kids.”

In 2021, another source claimed they wanted to keep their children separate from the relationship as they took things slow. However, one weekend may have changed their outlook. “[They] now plan to incorporate their kids more,” the source said. The couple tries to steer clear of the public’s sighting by meeting up at each other’s houses for dinner and drinks.

Although they have been together for years, they reportedly have no plans of tying the knot anytime soon. They don’t find a need to rush their relationship into marriage and enjoy the time they spend together.

Garner and Miller have yet to speak up about their relationship and plans for the future, but the duo may surprise the public because of their notoriously private romance. At the moment, Garner is prioritizing her children’s needs, raising them in a luxurious home with a beautiful garden.
