Jennifer, meanwhile, is rumored to be engaged to her boyfriend, John Miller. The 50-year-old stepped out near her LA home in September wearing an off-duty outfit consisting of a black pleated skirt and beige cardigan – but it was her jewelry that stole the show, with the sparkler reported to be an eternity band given to her by her squeeze.

Jennifer has been dating businessman John since 2018 after her divorce from Ben was finalized. They briefly split in October 2020 before rekindling their romance earlier in 2021.

The actress is notoriously private when it comes to her family 

The actress and father-of-two John have never commented publicly on their relationship, but her former Alias co-star Victor Garber – who married Jen and Ben back in 2005 – shared his opinion on her relationship.

"Her priority is her children. That's it. She's focused on that. She's remarkable … She's happy."
