The actress Jennifer Garner was recently spotted on a leisurely stroll with her longtime boyfriend, John Miller. The couple was wearing comfortable, matching blue flannel shirts and chatting as they walked. The two have been together since 2018, right after Garner and her ex-husband, Ben Affleck, divorced.
A source confirmed that Garner was dating Miller after the divorce but insisted they were keeping things casual. The source went on, saying Garner had been separated from Affleck for a while before the divorce, so dating was the natural next step after everything was settled.
Miller is a divorcée, just like Garner, having been married to the violinist Caroline Campbell. Miller describes himself as an entrepreneur and inventor who runs Cali Group. CaliBurger falls under the Cali Group name, and Miller’s company is highly interested in the effects of developing technology on retail and restaurants.
Although fans noted that he looked slightly worse for wear, they also realized he seemed genuinely happy.

Affleck and Garner share three kids, and Miller has two of his own with his ex-wife. Despite the fact that Miller is now with Garner, it seems Affleck and the businessman have no hard feelings toward each other. They were recently spotted shaking hands in the street and smiling broadly as they chatted with each other.

When relationships fail, bad blood often lingers between the two parties, especially if they move on with new partners. In Affleck, Garner, and Miller’s case, though, this couldn’t be further from the truth. The three were spotted outside Garner’s California home just as they greeted each other in the street.
Although they’re highly private, reports suggested the two decided to call it quits in 2020, although they stayed friendly.
Affleck had already been waiting when Garner and Miller arrived home. Miller got out of the car, walked up to Affleck with a beaming smile, and shook his hands as if they were old friends. The two talked before Garner joined them, and they headed inside. Fans were overjoyed to see them together but noted Affleck looked “strung out.” One said:
“Ben is looking a little rough!”

Although fans noted that he looked slightly worse for wear, they also realized he seemed genuinely happy. One fan commented, “First time I’ve seen him smile.” It was also noteworthy how Affleck and Garner managed to keep their relationship intact so they could still co-parent. After the chat, Garner and Miller held hands and strolled happily inside.

Since they started dating, Garner and Miller have kept their relationship as private as possible. The two haven’t been seen together in public, except for rare occasions, and Garner refrains from sharing too much about her latest boyfriend. However, he is still something of a public figure.
Miller is a feisty entrepreneur with a taste for technology. He’s a Los Angeles local who graduated from the University of Redlands in Redlands, California. He also has a law degree from Stanford and started his career as the second employee to be taken on at Arrowhead Pharmaceuticals.
He published a book with a few associates. The book explores nanotechnology and looks at how the use of nanotechnology is perceived in by the general public. However, in 2011, he left Arrowhead and founded his own company, which he is still the CEO of today.
On top of being a successful entrepreneur and innovative tech enthusiast, Miller is also a dad. He shares two children with his ex-wife, Violet Miller and Quest Miller. Miller and his ex, Caroline, were married in 2005, and they decided to go their separate ways in 2011. They tried again in 2012, but couldn’t make it work, so they finalized the divorce in 2018.
Soon after his divorce went through, Miller and Garner started seeing each other. Although they’re highly private, reports suggested the two decided to call it quits in 2020, although they stayed friendly. Lucky for them, the break didn’t last very long, and they were back together in May 2021.
