8 mins read


Jennifer Garner was seen for the first time since her ex-husband Ben Affleck and his fiancee Jennifer Lopez announced their engagement last week.

After laying low since the news broke on Friday night, the 49-year-old Yes Day star paid the newly-engaged couple a visit to their home in Brentwood on Wednesday.

While sitting in the passenger seat of a charcoal grey Honda, the Golden Globe winner couldn’t take her eyes off her phone.

The 13 Going on 30 actress, who has been in a relationship with Cali Group CEO John Miller on and off since 2018. was accompanied by two women in the car.

Her latest sighting comes just a day after an insider told E! News that she ‘knows that J-Lo has been a positive influence in certain ways.’

Ben shares three children – Violet, 16, Seraphina, 13, and Samuel, 10 – with his ex-wife and allegedly warned them all of his impending proposal beforehand.

The source noted: ‘Ben told Jen and the kids, so they knew about it.

While the Alias actress has not reacted publicly to her ex’s engagement, she has shared a number of Instagram posts of herself, including one of her dancing with Tiler Peck, a principal dancer at the New York City Ballet.

In the video, posted on Tuesday, Garner can be seen dancing around a sunlit backyard together to pre-set choreography to the tune of the Meghan Trainor song Better When I’m Dancin.’

J-Lo is herself a mother of two, amicably bringing up her twins Max and Emme, 14, with her third and latest ex-husband Marc Anthony.

Along with her three divorces, J-Lo has also had two broken engagements – first to Ben in the early 2000s and most recently to Alex Rodriguez.

She lifted the curtain back on her latest engagement in a newsletter on her website this Tuesday, revealing she was in the bath when Ben popped the question.

‘I was taken totally off guard and just looked in his eyes smiling and crying at the same time trying hard to get my head around the fact that after 20 years this was happening all over again, I was quite literally speechless and he said: “is that a yes?” I said YES of course that’s a YES.’

J-Lo also flashed her green diamond ring, explaining that green is ‘my favorite color’ and ‘my lucky color’ and gushing: ‘It means so much when somebody thinks about you and loves you and sees you. And it was just the most perfect moment.’

After a swirl of rumors it was confirmed last May that Jennifer and Ben had decided to give their romance one more try – just after her broken engagement to A-Rod.

Their previous engagement ended 18 years ago in 2004, since when they both married other people, had children and got divorced.

Bennifer, who starred in the flop 2003 film Gigli, had first become a couple in 2002 in the wake of her split from her second husband Cris Judd.

Although J-Lo and Ben planned to get married in 2003 they postponed the wedding and then ultimately in 2004 they broke the engagement entirely.

‘I think Jen and I made a mistake in that we fell in love, we were excited and maybe too accessible,’ Ben reflected in 2008.

‘I don’t think either of us anticipated the degree to which it would take on a world of its own,’ he explained on British television.

Ben and Jen married in 2005 and then welcomed three children before splitting in 2015 and finalizing their divorce in 2018.

Although the Garner-Affleck split came after his alleged affair with the family’s nanny Christine Ouzounian, Jennifer has insisted the dalliance was not to blame.

‘Let me just tell you something. We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny,’ she told Vanity Fair in 2016.

Their co-parenting relationship has been famously strong over the years, to the point of setting off frequent rumors they would reunite.

When Ben relapsed into alcoholism in 2018, she was seen passing him Jack-In-The-Box in the backseat of a car while she drove him to rehab.

In fact, it was Jennifer who is said to have staged the intervention at Ben’s house, armed with a sober coach and a Bible.
