Jennifer Garner and boyfriend John Miller are proving that breakfast dates are the way to go.
The new couple hit up a Santa Monica hot spot on Monday morning amid reports that their relationship was starting to simmer down. These reports referenced their infrequent dates and conflicting schedules. However, their appearance together showed their romance is going strong.
A source recently told E! News that the Alias star is still seeing the businessman, but she wants to "keep it private and for themselves."
Unlike her very public marriage to Ben Affleck, Jen is "keeping things under wraps by going away with him and seeing him in private places. She's enjoying being with him and doing it the way she wants," the insider previously revealed.
Moreover, things are still new between her and Miller, who is a father of two, and they have their kids to watch.
When it was revealed she was once again dating, a source told E! News that things between her and John were "casual."
"She's been hanging out with him for the last few months and getting to know him," the source said at the time. "They have some friends in common and know some of the same people through their kids."
More importantly, Garner has her kids to take care of, so it's no surprise that Jen has to schedule her dating life around her kid's school hours and play dates. Hence the breakfast date.
She also has to make time for her various holiday activities, like baking.
