AceShowbiz - Ben Affleck may have given a seal of approval to Jennifer Garner's boyfriend John Miller. The actor appears to get along well with the Cali Group CEO as they're spotted together for the first time in public.
On Monday, January 30, the "Argo" star and the entrepreneur were pictured having a chat outside Jennifer's house in California. According to Page Six which obtained the photos, Jennifer and John were just arriving back home and found her ex-husband waiting for them.
As the "13 Going on 30" actress parked the car on the sidewalk, Ben and John shook hands while all smiles. They appeared to have a light conversation before Jen caught up with them and they all went inside.
Ben donned a black coat over a white T-shirt and pants with colorful sneakers. He sported his signature trimmed beard.
John, meanwhile, kept things casual in light-washed jeans and a checkered button-down teamed with brown shoes. He carried a black duffle bag which he brought into the house.
As for Jennifer, she rocked a navy cardigan on top of a blouse and jeans. She completed her look with sneakers while carrying a large black bag on her shoulder. Her brunette hair was pulled in a messy updo.
On the same day, Jen and John were seen having a stroll around Santa Barbara. The two were holding hands as they explored the luxurious community of Montecito.
While John wore the same outfit that he was seen sporting outside Jen's house, the "Alias" alum had the same sneakers on but opted for a more comfortable outfit in a flannel jacket worn over a gray turtleneck and black leggings. Her hair was let loose while she had a pair of glasses that she kept in her pocket when not wearing them.
Jen and John were first romantically linked in 2018, shortly after she finalized her divorce from Ben, with whom she shares three children, Violet, 17, Seraphina, 14, and Samuel, 10. Miller, 45. They separated in 2020, but reconciled a year later.
According to a recent report, Jen is not in a rush to walk down the aisle just yet, but she sees a long-term future with John. "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 told Us Weekly. "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."
