Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Have Friendly Church Outing Following Her Dating News

Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck seem to be adjusting to their new normal just fine! The former spouses stepped out together for church on Sunday in what has become a regular part of their family’s routine. 

Garner and Affleck appeared friendly, chatting after the service, with Affleck even putting his hand on Garner’s shoulder in a comfortable exchange. 

Garner, 46, wore grey slacks and a black sweater with her hair pulled back in a loose bun. Affleck, 46, donned a plaid button-down shirt and jeans. 

This isn’t the first time they’ve been spotted out together recently. Last week both Garner and Affleck attended Game 4 of the World Series.

The parents of Violet, 12, Seraphina, 9, and Samuel, 6, finalized their divorce in October after three years of separation. 

Though they have each moved on romantically, Affleck and Garner have remained close, with Garner driving her ex to a rehab facility earlier this year. 

The Batman star is continuing treatment for alcohol addiction, while returning to his everyday life and career. 

A source recently confirmed to ET that Garner is dating businessman John Miller.

“They went for romantic dinners far out of town or at his home,” a source told ET. “He is warm, fun and incredibly smart. He is a real success in the business world and has no interest being in the entertainment industry.”

Affleck, meanwhile, ended his brief romance with Playboy model, Shauna Sexton, in October, due in part to Garner’s influence.

“Close friends were honest with him about being in a relationship with someone who was only 22 years old,” a source told ET at the time. “Jen’s opinion truly still matters to Ben. Jen tried to be supportive of his relationship with Lindsay [Shookus] but she couldn’t get behind this.”

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner Attend Game 4 of World Series After Finalizing Divorce

They may not be an item any more but Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck still share a love of baseball.

The A-list exes both attended the World Series game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox in L.A. on Saturday. The Justice League star, who is from Massachusetts, was all smiles while sporting a Red Sox cap and chatting with a fellow fan in the stands. Likewise, Garner looked comfy and casual while taking in the game with actress Angela Bassett. The sporting event was a family affair for Ben, as his brother, Casey Affleck, was also in attendance. 

This joint sighting comes just days after ET learned that the 46-year-old Peppermint star is dating businessman John Miller. The newfound romance is only a few months old. They met through mutual friends and have gone out several times together.

“They went for romantic dinners far out of town or at his home,” a source shared. “He is warm, fun and incredibly smart. He is a real success in the business world and has no interest in being in the entertainment industry.” 

“Jen’s marriage to Ben has been over for a very long time and, while her first priority has always been her kids, she knew she needed to rebuild her life without Ben,” the source added. “It wasn’t easy at first and she even had to push herself to date. When she finally did step into that world, she kept that part of her life very private.”

Earlier in October, Affleck was released from a rehab facility where he was being treated for alcohol addiction, which Garner first took him to in August. After getting out, he released a statement addressing the situation.

“This week I completed a forty day stay at a treatment center for alcohol addiction and remain in outpatient care,” he wrote. “The support I have received from my family, colleagues and fans means more to me than I can say. It’s given me the strength and support to speak about my illness with others.”

“Battling any addiction is a lifelong and difficult struggle,” he continued. “Because of that one is never really in or out of treatment. It is a lifelong commitment. I am fighting for myself and my family. So many people have reached out on social media and spoke about their own journeys with addiction. To those people I want to say thank you. Your strength and courage is inspiring and is supporting me in ways I didn’t think was possible. It helps to know I am not alone. As I’ve had to remind myself, if you have a problem, getting help is a sign of wisdom and strength, not weakness or failure. With acceptance and humility, I continue to avail myself with the help of so many people and I am grateful to all those who are there for me. I hope down the road I can offer an example to others who are struggling.”

Soon after his release, the former couple officially finalized their divorce following their separation in 2015.

The 46-year-old actor is currently hard at work on a new drama titled Torrance in which he plays a former all-star basketball player who loses his career and his wife amid his battle with addiction. Through his struggle to get clean, he attempts to reclaim his life by becoming the coach of a high school basketball team.

Affleck and Garner were hardly the only familiar faces in the crowd on Saturday night. Koby Bryant, Magic Johnson, Alex Rodriguez, Jason Bateman, Rob Lowe, Charlize Theron, Mandy Moore and her fiancé, Taylor Goldsmith, were also on hand. Ultimately, the Dodgers lost to the Red Sox, 6-9.

Jennifer Garner Takes Ben Affleck Back to Rehab After His Struggles With Sobriety

Ben Affleck is ready to get back on track. 

Jennifer Garner drove her estranged husband to rehab on Wednesday afternoon, ET has learned. The 46-year-old actor knew he needed help and Garner was there for him, a source tells ET.

The news comes as Affleck made headlines for his recent outings with 22-year-old Playboy model Shauna Sexton — though a separate source told ET that the Oscar winner had broken up with his girlfriend of one year, Lindsay Shookus, and was focusing on his sobriety and his family. 

“Ben’s priorities remain his family and his sobriety,” the source said. “He continues to attend meetings and meditation classes for his well-being. You have to work at your sobriety every day and he does that.”

ET has reached out to Affleck and Garner’s reps for comment.

Affleck revealed in March 2017 that he had completed rehab for alcohol addiction. In a heartfelt statement on Facebook, the actor said he wanted to be “the best father I can be” to his three children with ex Jennifer Garner: 12-year-old Violet, 9-year-old Seraphina and 6-year-old Samuel. 

“I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront. I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be,” he wrote at the time. “I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step.”

“I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do,” he continued. “This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.”

Affleck has been open about his struggles with addiction. See more in the video below.

Ben Affleck Spotted Out With Playboy Model Shauna Sexton Again Amid Romance Rumors

Two sightings in three days! 

Ben Affleck certainly doesn’t seem concerned about the romance rumors between himself and Shauna Sexton. On Sunday, the two were spotted going through a Jack In the Box drive-thru in Los Angeles, and looked pretty happy about it. 

Affleck drove the car with the 22-year-old Playboy model in the passenger seat, and both were grinning as they ordered food. 

This outing comes just days after the 46-year-old actor was allegedly spotted on a dinner date with Sexton. While Affleck and Sexton have been spending quite a bit of time together, it’s yet to be confirmed that his relationship with Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus is over after a year of dating.

Sexton did post a comment on one of her own Instagram posts that got fans buzzing last week. When one of her followers asked, “Did heaven send you??” she replied, “No, just Batman.” This prompted some fans to speculate as to whether she was referencing when Affleck portrayed the Caped Crusader in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Meanwhile, it appears Shookus has deleted her Instagram account entirely.
