Millie Bobby Brown and Jake Bongiovi (yes, he’s Jon Bon Jovi’s son) have been dating for around three years now, and they’re as in love as ever. In fact…they are officially married, which is truly!!!! news, so we went ahead and laid out their entire relationship in a convenient timeline. Attention, pls—let’s start at the beginning!

June 2021

Amid rumors they’re dating, Jake calls Millie his BFF on Instagram, seemingly reminding everyone that people can be friends too. (Although not in this case, lol.)

This same month, the pair is spotted holding hands in photos published by People.

January 2022

Millie subtly references Jake in an interview with Seventeen while talking about her love for Olivia Rodrigo, saying, "I love ‘1 Step Forward, 3 Steps Back.’ It makes me wanna cry every time. I think my boyfriend’s gonna kill me if I listen to it around him anymore."

May 2022

Millie drops some sweet pics of Jake on Instagram to celebrate his birthday, proving they are very much still going strong. She also appears to reveal that her nickname for him is…Schroobie Noobie. Somewhat alarming, but still better than when Justin Bieber was calling Hailey Bieber "Goo Goo."

January 2023

Millie kicks off the new year with an IG shoutout to all the most celebration-worthy things in her life—including Jake, who she describes as her "partner for life," making us collectively go 😍😍😍.

"Endlessly in love with the year I’ve had! Grateful for my friends, family, donkey (Bernard), my doggies, my puppies’ teeth, and my partner for life," Millie captions the post. "Here’s to another year with you and the wonderful people and animals around us. Let’s do it again but better!"

Jake ups the aww factor, commenting, "Your year babe love you so much" (and posting a Millie-heavy New Year’s IG gallery of his own captioned, "Love is all you need").

February 2023

Millie celebrates her 19th birthday at Tao in Hollywood (not not jealous, lol) alongside Jake, and the Daily Mail publishes pics of the duo leaving the restaurant. However (!!) the festivities don't end there because Jake takes to social media the following day to share a sweet b-day tribute to his girlfriend.

April 2023

Millie and Jake seemingly announce their engagement! At least, that is most definitely the vibe we’re getting from these pics:

June 2023

Millie and Jake enjoy a summer date night in the Midwest when they hit Taylor Swift’s first Eras Tour concert in Cincinnati on June 30. The couple is spotted hanging out in the VIP tent, looking just as in love as usual.

August 2023

In her latest interview with Women's Wear Daily, Millie chats about keeping wedding planning with Jake private:

"I think [for the wedding, we'll] probably [be] drawing the curtains, just because there are only so many moments in life that you get only once. And to have everyone's opinions and eyes looking at that just feels unnatural to me. So I feel it's important to keep those things, those small precious moments in life, really close to your chest. I can say that the planning is going—it's so fun and it's such an exciting time in my life."

The actor also chats to The Sunday Times (via People), and reveals she "knew he was going to be a huge part of my life" after the first time they ever spoke:

"I ran to my mum and said, ‘I really, really like him!’ After we met we knew we never wanted to leave each other’s side. You can’t pinpoint why [someone is 'the one'], it’s just the feeling of knowing that that’s the person you want to spend the rest of your time with....I think so much of life is overthinking. The one thing that made clear sense to me was him. So I didn’t really have to do much thinking."

Speaking of Millie's mom, apparently Jake proposed with one of her rings: "I’ve always loved that ring, it’s always stuck out to me, so she gave it to Jake. They were in cahoots about the whole proposal. I love that I can always keep a piece of my mum with me."

September 2023

Millie chats about engaged life on BBC Radio 1, saying "I am engaged. It’s nice, it’s fun, it does feel different. People were like, ‘it’s not going to be any different’—I’m like, it kind of is though."

Meanwhile, we get this cuteness:

Not to mention this:

October 2023

In her global cover story as Glamour's Woman of the Year, Mills opens up about her special connection to her fiancé, saying, "When I met Jake, I just felt I could be loud. He embraced that and encouraged that. And I fell in love with myself while being with him."

She adds that Jake loves her for the things she once didn't like about herself, which led to a revelation of self-love: "He was a really big, huge part of me loving myself and becoming a woman. It was like, 'Wow, I really love this person because he allows me to love myself.'"

"I wanted to be the woman that my mom is to me and I wanted to be the woman that my grandmother was to me," she continues. "So that was never my, like, intention, to be a wife. But after meeting Jake and seeing, ‘Oh, I don't have to be this stereotypical wife for him. He doesn't want me to be that either. He wants me to go and do my thing and live my life, and he will hold my hand in the process of that.' I was like, 'Oh, I do want this.'" These two!!! 🥹
