Jon Bon Jovi approves of Millie Bobby Brown marrying his son.
Congratulations are in order for Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown and her fiancé, Jake Bongiovi, who is singer Jon Bon Jovi’s son. The two announced their reported engagement via Instagram in April, says The Hollywood Reporter, and fans have been freaking out ever since. The two are quite young to be engaged, but Jon Bon Jovi feels that it’s okay and that it’s important for the two to grow together.
The newly engaged couple certainly are young since Millie Bobby Brown is still a teenager at only 19 years old, while Jake Bongiovi is one year older than her at 20 years old. However, the two have already begun growing together as they have been dating since the summer of 2021. Only time will tell if their romance lasts, but it is comforting that Jon Bon Jovi believes in their relationship.
Part of Jon Bon Jovi’s positive outlook on marriage stems from his own relationship with his wife Dorothea Hurley, as the two were high school sweethearts and have been happily married for 34 years. The couple has four children together (Stephanie, Jesse, Jake, and Romeo) and will soon be the in-laws of Millie Bobby Brown and her family. Jon Bon Jovi has said that the Brown family is great and that Millie herself is wonderful.
To announce their engagement, Millie Bobby Brown and Jake Bongiovi turned to Instagram to share the exciting news. The Enola Holmes actress posted a photo of her and her now fiancé smiling together by the beach with a caption that quotes the Taylor Swift song “Lover.” Meanwhile, Jake Bongiovi shared similar beach photos with a sweet, simple caption: “Forever.”
So, who is Millie Bobby Brown’s new fiancé? Jake Bongiovi is a 20-year-old college student currently attending Syracuse University (while Brown attends Purdue University). He is also an actor who has roles in two films that are in post-production: Sweetheart and Rockbottom.
Millie Bobby Brown is well-known for her acting career, specifically for her role as Eleven in the ongoing supernatural TV series Stranger Things. She also starred alongside Henry Cavill and Helena Bonham Carter in the adventure crime films Enola Holmes and Enola Holmes 2. She’s in the 2019 Godzilla reboot Godzilla: King of the Monsters as the lead character who persuades others to save the monsters.
Outside of acting, Millie Bobby Brown is also a successful businesswoman and a soon-to-be author. She recently started her own coffee brand Cafe Florence which is part of her other thriving skincare business, Florence by Mills. And when her historical fiction book, Nineteen Steps, is published on September 12, 2023, she will officially be an author.
If Millie Bobby Brown and Jake Bongiovi’s marriage is anything like Dolly Parton and Carl Dean, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, or Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar, then they will have a long and happy relationship. All three of these married couples met and married at a young age but are still happily together many years later.
