Jennifer Garner supports her ex-husband Ben Affleck's romance with Jennifer Lopez.

Garner and Affleck have no bad blood after their divorce. They even co-parent their three children together. The "Yes Day" star is "happy" for Affleck and she is supportive of his relationship with the "On The Floor" singer.  

"J.Lo and Ben's families are getting along great and they are making an effort to take things slow when it comes to their kids," an unnamed source told Entertainment Tonight. "[J.Lo] is so happy with Ben. He is so laid-back and chill and he makes her laugh nonstop. He is caring, sweet and supportive of her, but not competitive with her when it comes to their careers and fame."

Another insider said Garner doesn't want to be involved so long as their children remain his priority.

"Jen does not want to get involved. She has completely moved on," an anonymous insider told E! News. "She continues to focus on her kids and that is her priority. When the kids are with Ben, she hopes that is his priority too. What he does the rest of the time is not her problem. She has done everything she can to foster great relationships between Ben and the kids. But she won't get involved with who he dates or his private life."

Last week, Affleck and Lopez visited Hollywood's Universal Studios. The couple was joined by Lopez's 13-year-old twins, Max and Emme, and Affleck and Garner's 9-year-old son, Samuel. The group was photographed strolling through Springfield, the park's "Simpsons"-themed attraction. They were accompanied by their bodyguards.

On Saturday, Affleck and Lopez were photographed enjoying a romantic stroll in the Hamptons. They were spotted wrapping their arms around each other. The "Argo" star was also seen moving to kiss Lopez on her forehead. Lopez recently said that she is "super happy."

"And I just want everybody to know that it's the best time. It's the best time of my life," she said in a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1.

Meanwhile, Garner has also rekindled her romance with John Miller less than a year after their split. The actress and the CaliGroup CEO officially started dating in 2018 after she and Affleck finalized their divorce. They broke up in August 2020, but they have recently reunited.
