AceShowbiz - Jennifer Garner may not go public with her relationship with rumored new boyfriend John Miller in the foreseeable future, though they have reportedly been dating for months. Words are the mother of three has taken a step back in her love life because she's not ready for a "deeply committed" relationship.
"Jen has slowed things down with John Miller since the word got out they were dating," a source tells ET Online. The 46-year-old actress reportedly wants to channel her time and energy for her family instead, as her "children, career and Ben [Affleck] are her main focus at the moment and she is not ready for anything too serious," the source adds.
Jennifer is said sharing to her friends about this and they are supportive about her decision. "Privately, she has told friends she doesn't want to be deeply committed at the moment. She wants to focus on family, career and getting Ben back on track," the source further explains. "She enjoys her time with John but she has concerns of moving too quickly because she doesn't want to be disappointed. Her friends are in full support of her stepping back a bit because they all know relationships take a lot of work and right now her plate is full."
The "Alias" alum also maintains her good relationship with her ex Ben Affleck. The source reveals, "She still communicates with Ben almost daily because his sobriety is so important, she wants be a strong support and he leans on her a lot. She truly is a great friend to him and an amazing mother."
Back in October, news broke that Jennifer and Miller, the CEO of a financial holding company, had been dating for several months. "They've been together six months - and it's getting pretty serious," a source told Us Weekly magazine. "Jen brings out the best in John, and he is the happiest he has probably ever been. It's a loving, healthy relationship."
John, 40, has previously been married and is the father of two children. He's also chairman and chief executive officer of CaliGroup, a company which owns a chain of CaliBurger restaurants and Miso Robotics.
While her ex Ben dated producer Lindsay Shookus and Playboy model Shauna Sexton after their split in 2015, Jen's romance with John is believed to be her first real relationship she's had since her marriage breakup.
