Jennifer Garner and her boyfriend of about a year, CaliGroup CEO John Miller, were clearly thrilled with each other’s company when they headed out to breakfast on May 15 in Brentwood, Calif.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the couple’s relationship has really taken off after Miller’s divorce from Caroline Campbell, his wife of 13 years, was finalized last November. The couple share a son, 12, and 10-year-old daughter.
Meanwhile, Garner’s divorce from her ex-husband, Ben Affleck, was finalized three years after they split, but they have remained close while co-parenting daughters Violet Anne, 13, and Seraphina Rose Elizabeth, 10, and son Samuel Garner, 7.
Despite her new relationship, Garner has stuck by 46-year-old Affleck’s side during his recent ups and down as he battled his demons with alcohol in rehab.
Affleck recently boasted about his affection for his ex and his mom, Christine, on Instagram. “Happy Mother’s Day to the two incredible mothers who have shown me the meaning of love,” he wrote.
The actor also took the opportunity to praise and gush about Garner in March. “When somebody’s’ the mother of your kids, they’re going to be the most important central person in your life, and that’s good,” he said on Today. “I hope I’m a pretty good dad. I certainly try very hard. I’m lucky they got a great mom, and she helps out a great deal with making sure that we co-parent in as good a way as possible.”
Surprisingly, as Radar previously reported, Affleck has actually taken a liking to his ex-wife’s boyfriend, and the two have formed an unexpected bromance. “Jen introduced John to Ben because he’ll obviously be around their kids, so it was the right thing to do,” a source told Radar. “No one was more surprised than her when Ben and John immediately clicked.”
“They text each other from time to time and there’s no edge or awkwardness between them at all,” said the source.
