Jennifer Garner spotted out at breakfast with her boyfriend, John Miller

On Mother’s Day, Ben Affleck wrote a message directed at his mom, Christine Boldt, and to the mother of his children, his ex Jennifer Garner. He included a paparazzi photo of the two of them with the message “To the two incredible mothers who have shown me the meaning of love.” He also made donations to organizations working to bail out incarcerated mothers, which was nice. I wondered in that post if Garner was still with her boyfriend, John Miller. She hadn’t talked about him in what I saw of her People’s Most Beautiful Woman interview and we hadn’t seen them together in quite some time. Right on cue, Jen and John went to breakfast yesterday where they just happened to be caught out by the paparazzi. Only one agency had these photos so you can see them at US’s site.

Us doesn’t have much new information except for the fact that they were in Brentwood. Also they remind us that a source told them, back when Jen got the cover in January, that “No one would be surprised if they got engaged by summer. John has discussed marrying Jen,” and that Jen “admires John because he is just normal.” Do you think they’ll get married? I don’t, he doesn’t seem down for these PR games but I could be wrong.

That’s a nice photo but it’s not a coincidence. Jen and John hadn’t been seen out together in weeks. People were talking about Ben’s message and how close Ben and Jen looked at their kid’s soccer game. Ben and Jen have been photographed out together a couple of times since too. I’m glad Jen is well rid of him, if that’s the case and that’s the message she’s sending here.

    something seems off to me about their whole dynamic, when she’s with Ben it always kind of looks to me like they’re still together. my first reaction when I saw this headline was how convenient, given that we just had those paparazzi photos of her and Ben looking cozy at the kids game. it’s just weird to mepersonally, kudos after everything they can really still be super friendly I guess.

    • JoJo says:

      My sentiments exactly. Something strikes me as ‘off’ about all of it. There’s something artificial. I’m not really buying her relationship with Miller, to be honest. It seems manufactured. Is she over Ben? I don’t think so. She spends an inordinate amount of time with “the love of her life”, kids or no kids.

      • Lena says:

        Maybe it’s because you don’t Want to believe in it? I actually buy it more because she IS keeping it private and under wraps than if she constantly paraded him in front of the paps. Then it would seem like she was trying to prove something. And it Showb that like Ben she can keep her life private when she wants to. The only thing is when you avoid being photographed you are constantly rumored to be split just like Ryan gosling and Eva Mendes were and then suddenly they popped out a baby.

      • JoJo says:

        No, that’s not it @Lena. I want to believe it. I just find it weird for two exes – one of whom declared Ben the love of her love and publicly swore off dating – to spend that much time together. At some point, you integrate your significant other into family activities and stop going on holidays with your ex. And if she’s not trying to prove anything, then why even bother trotting him out for a pap stroll just to prove she’s not back with Ben? Time will tell, I guess.

    • FHMom says:

      She and Ben look so comfortable together. Anyway, if they can be civil and friendly to each other, then more power to them. They do both seem to be on the same page when it comes to their kids.

    “When is the last time we heard about Jennifer’s boyfriend?”

    Quoted from the other story. And like clockwork he gets brought out for an appearance. Interesting.

    My eyes are going to roll out of my head if she marries this guy. She has two failed marriages under her belt, one of which she just got out of having spent a decade being a doormat while her husband enjoyed his *ahem* leisure time. Date. Have some fun. At least TRY to be independent. Good Housekeeping will still put you on their covers, I promise. 🙄

    When I first saw the picture, albeit did not have my glasses on, I thought she was with Michael Vartan.

    • Jojo says:

      Omg, yessss, me too. I loved/was such a fan of Alias, Jen and Michael during the show. Plus Michael is such a hottie; totally underrated. Yum!

    Say what you will about Jen Garner, but I bet she’d be an amazing friend. A boring celebrity in many ways, for sure. But I think she seems like someone who genuinely is kind and warm.

  5. Carolnr says:

    John must be an extremely patient man to see Jen being papped a lot hanging out with Ben with & without their children. With them meeting up in separate cars for the school run, it seems that Ben has the option of joining them. ( And he has chosen to join them).
    I think that Jen is determined to keep this relationship quiet, but when rumors are flying that she & Ben are reuniting, she will be seen with John. Otherwise, I think they probably meet a lot outside of Brentwood. .

  6. Tuille says:

    Miller has had some experience with performers and their career demands. His ex-wife is a very well regarded concert violinist who travels to perform.

  7. Kat says:

    The only question I have is this: does Jennifer Garner bring her regular mugs on outings? She doesn’t use travel mugs? What about in the car?

    • Molly says:

      Randomly: Sara Foster does the same thing. Her sister Erin made a joke about it on insta stories once, and apparently it’s a thing she’s always done.

  8. Tris says:

    This family loves to have stains on their clothes!

  9. Kate says:

    I posted this on the last relationship update of theirs but I read in comments from someone with inside knowledge of their PR strategy that they have been engaged for a while now and just post these little updates every couple months to get her fanbase’s feet wet slowly so they don’t think she moved on too fast from Ben after the divorce. Take with grain of salt, but also – not wrong so far since I read that probably 6 months ago.

    • jen says:

      Interesting. I wonder about the kids, they must be so confused? Obviously co-parenting is a good thing, but this also seems to be sending mixed messages to the kids.

    • JoJo says:

      Moved on too fast? They split in 2015! :) That said, I’d be kind of surprised to see her get married again, to be honest. She’s already been divorced twice. Seems like she’d have serious reservations about jumping in a third time, but maybe I’m wrong.

    • Lena says:

      Kate- I read that too from a couple of different blind sources before he was even publicly named. Then US magazine said the same thing more or less. We’ll see.

  10. Ali says:

    I just don’t see Ben ever sharing family time with Hamburger man so how much time with Jen does that really leave?

  11. ana says:

    He looks like Michael Vartan who IIRC she dumped for Ben.
