“They’re great. They’re absolutely fantastic,” he said of the newlyweds. “It was a very small family wedding, and the bride looked gorgeous and Jake is happy as can be and it’s true.”

People reported over the weeekend the 20-year-old actress and the 22-year-old model were wed in an intimate ceremony in the United States with their parents in attendance ahead of a larger ceremony planned for later this year.

The marriage comes just over a year after the Stranger Things actress confirmed her engagement to Bongiovi last April, posting a photo of her ring and quoting Taylor Swift’s “Lover”: “I’ve loved you for three summers now, honey, I want ’em all.” The couple first sparked dating rumors back in June 2021.

In August, Brown revealed that she and the actor first chatted over Instagram. “I was interested in him and wanted to know more,” she told the Sunday Times. “As soon as we spoke I knew he was going to be a huge part of my life. After we met we knew we never wanted to leave each other’s side.”

Bongiovi’s rockstar dad has also been supportive from the beginning. “I don’t know if age matters,” Bon Jovi told Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM show last year, noting that his wife Dorothea was his high school sweetheart. “You know, if you find the right partner and you grow together — I think that would be my advice really, is growing together is wise. So I think that all of my kids have found the people that they think they can grow together with and we like them all.”
