In 2020, The Mail on Sunday reported that Jennifer reconciled with her father and called him every day because of the pandemic.
A source said, ‘Jane forgave her father for going out a long time ago. But their relationship has had its ups and downs.
Jennifer hasn’t spoken to him in a long time. But since the coronavirus crisis, she’s been on the phone almost every day. And not just brief conversations.
The source added, “It’s as if she has realized that life is too short and that she wants her relationship with John to be at its best. He is glad they reconciled.

Talking to Lure “I think my mom’s divorce really screwed her up,” she said last week.
But after years of reflection, she was now able to see some of the limitations that someone of her mother’s generation had to go through.
“Back in this generation, it wasn’t like, ‘Go to therapy, talk to someone. Why not start at smaller doses? ‘You live your life and you catch your child with tears on your face and you have no help,'” an apparent reference to her mother’s condition.
I have forgiven my mother. I have forgiven my father. I forgave my family,” Jennifer revealed, which is a big deal considering she’s been away from her mother for years.
Now reaping the benefits of forgiveness, the “Morning Show” star said she now knows for herself how important it is to let go of the painful moments that resentment ends.
She said: It is poisonous to have this resentment, this anger. I learned this by watching my mom never leave her.
I remember saying, “Thank you for showing me what I’ll never be.” This is what I mean about taking the dark things that happen in our lives, the unhappy moments, and trying to find places to honor them for what they have given us.
The actress went on to exemplify those advantages by admitting that she was motivated to leave her family’s home, which she described as “not a pleasant home to live in,” as a result of her parents’ divorce.
“I was thrilled to get out,” she said of the family’s New York City apartment.
Forgiveness: She said: I forgive my mother. I have forgiven my father. I’ve forgiven my family,” Jennifer revealed, which is a big deal considering she’s been away from her mother for years.
