Ben Affleck Is All Smiles While Having Chat With Ex Jennifer Garner’s Boyfriend John Miller: “[She’s] an amazing coparent”

The Good Will Hunting star and the Cali Group CEO were spotted exchanging pleasantries outside of the Felicity alum’s residence on Monday, January 30, according to photos obtained by Page Six.

The two men dressed casually as they smiled and laughed, with Affleck wearing tan pants, a black peacoat, and sneakers. Miller, for his part, wore blue jeans and a checkered shirt while carrying a black duffel bag.

Following their playful talk, the two meet Garner, who has been dating the California native since October 2018, before entering the Yes Day star’s home. Garner dressed down with dark jeans, a black cardigan, and shoes.

The uncommon sighting is the first time the Argo director and Alias alum who were married for nearly a decade before splitting in 2015 have been sighted together since Affleck married Jennifer Lopez in July 2022. Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 10, are the couple’s three children.

Since their divorce, the ex-couples have worked hard to co-parent with one another and their respective partners. Affleck is also the stepfather to the Selena star’s 14-year-old twins, Emme and Max, whom she shares with her ex-husband Marc Anthony. Miller, on the other hand, has two children with his ex-wife, Caroline Campbell.

A source exclusively told Us Weekly in November 2022 that Garner and Lopez had connected via their children. “Now that Jen and Jen have been co-parenting, they’ve been getting to know each other better and have formed a very new friendship,” the insider revealed at the time, noting that the Adam Project star “can’t believe how sweet” Lopez is to her kids.

That same month, the “Let’s Get Loud” singer praised Garner and Affleck for their amicable split. “[She’s] an amazing co-parent and they work really well together,” Lopez gushed during an interview with Vogue. Lopez added that taking it one step at a time is how the Gigli co-stars are dealing with their newly mixed family.

“The transition is a process that needs to be handled with so much care,” she said. “They have so many feelings. They’re teens. But it’s going really well so far.”

Garner and Miller have been working on growing closer as the Shotgun Wedding actor and Oscar winner work on blending their brood.

“Jennifer adores John and still sees a long-term future with him. There’s no desire on her part to slow things down, spend less time together or anything like that,” a source exclusively revealed to Us earlier this month. “She’s just decided after a lot of thought that she’s just not in a hurry to rush down the aisle just yet and that she feels perfectly happy cherishing and enjoying what they have — for now — without a formal label.”

While the couple may not wish to be married right away, Garner and Miller’s children will meet for the first time at the Texas native’s 50th birthday celebration in April 2022. “John’s kids finally met Jen’s kids,” an insider exclusively shared with Us at the time. “Lots of kids and family were invited, including John’s kids, his parents, his brother, and his [brother’s] wife.”

Three months later, another source revealed that the Invention of Lying actress and the businessman were “spending more time” with each other’s kids and “getting quite close” as a family unit. “They meet at each other’s houses — even for a quick glass of wine or for a lowkey dinner date night away from prying eyes,” the insider said noting that Garner and her beau prefer to keep their relationship “very private.”
