The source continued: “John and Jen are in similar places in their lives and can relate to raising kids after a divorce. They’re on the same page and understand where things stand.”
In October 2018, shortly after finalizing her divorce from Affleck, the Emmy-nominated actress began dating Miller. Garner shares three children with Affleck — Violet, Serafina and Samuel — and Miller has two children with his ex-wife, Caroline Campbell.
Garner and Miller reportedly had an amicable split in August 2020, as the two decided to go their separate ways due to the businessman being “ready for marriage'' and Garner “just couldn’t commit.” Apparently, the two have worked out their differences and are ready to give their romance another shot.
The Peppermint actress and Affleck co-starred in the 2001 hit film Pearl Harbor, but it wasn’t until after they appeared together in 2003’s Daredevil that the two went public with their relationship. The happy couple tied the knot in June 2005 before shockingly calling it quits in 2018.
Since their split, the former flames have set a prime example for the rest of Hollywood on how to co-parent, with the duo being recently snapped watching their son Samuel as he took swimming lessons earlier this month.
Although the doting parents met up to support their son in his extracurricular activities, we’re sure the topic of Affleck spending time with ex-fiancée Lopez surely came up. OK! was the first to exclusively report that Lopez and Affleck, who called off their September 2003 wedding, have been in private communication since she split from baseball legend Alex Rodriguez.
Then, OK! learned that Affleck was spotted multiple times secretly visiting the “If You Had My Love” singer at her house during the day. The actor was snapped being picked up in a white Escalade SUV, which apparently belongs to J.Lo, before being escorted to her mansion.
In a clear attempt to avoid being seen, a source spilled: "Security picks [Affleck] up at a nearby location and drops him off after spending a few hours at her house.” While the ex-couple has not actually been photographed together, Affleck allegedly visited Lopez three times since she returned home from filming Shotgun Wedding in the Dominican Republic.
As far as how Garner feels about her baby daddy hanging out with his ex-fiancée, OK! learned that the actress “isn't bothered by Ben hanging out with J.Lo or anyone else.” She’s actually encouraging it, a pal close to the star dished, adding: “She wants what is best for Ben."
Us Weekly was the first to report on Garner and Miller being back together.
