If you didn't already know, Millie Bobby Brown is engaged! A few weeks ago, the actress announced her engagement to her partner Jake Bongiovi via Instagram. Ever since, the Internet has been processing that the 19-year-old actress is getting married.
Millie subtly announced the news on April 11, 2023 in a post captioned: "I've loved you three summers now, honey, and I want 'em all 🤍." ICYDK, these are actually lyrics to Taylor Swift's hit "Lover," which is one of the sweetest love songs ever written. Jake also shared his own post with Millie the same day, writing "Forever 🤍," in his caption.
Although the 19-year-old Stranger Things star keeps her life pretty private, Millie and her boo have shared some adorable relationship moments in the public eye. Here's everything to know about Millie's fiancé, from his super famous parents to how the couple met.
He's 20 years old.
Jake, or Jacob Hurley Bongiovi, was born on May 7, 2002 in New Jersey, per IMDb. So, Jake is a Taurus, and Millie is a Pisces—which is literally the most compatible you can get, in terms of the stars. They're a match made in heaven!
Jake's dad is Jon Bon Jovi.
Yup, he's a nepo baby folks. ICYDK, Jake is actually the son of one of the biggest rock stars of all time. He also has three siblings: a sister Stephanie (29), and two brothers, Jesse (28), and Romeo (19).
However, Jake has no interest in following in his dad's footsteps (that would be a tough act to follow!). He told Man About Town magazine last summer that he's much more passionate about a career in acting. However, he did say that watching movies with his dad is what got him interested in the craft.
"What spoke to me were the people on the screen, not the voices through the speakers," he said, explaining his passion for acting over music.
Jake's mom is Dorothea Hurley, who met Jon Bon Jovi while the pair attended high school together. They've been married since 1989, per PEOPLE.
Jon Bon Jovi totally loves Millie.
In May 2023, Jon Bon Jovi confirmed his son's engagement on Andy Cohen's Sirius XM show Radio Andy. Cohen asked Jon Bon Jovi if he was concerned that his son was too young to be engaged.
“I don’t know if age matters," the rocker told Cohen. "If you find the right partner and you grow together.”
Jon Bon Jovi, who married his high school sweetheart, said that three of his four children are currently engaged. And then he gushed about Millie. "Millie’s wonderful. Her whole family are great. Jake is very, very happy," he said on Radio Andy.
Jake went to Syracuse University for a while.
Jake was accepted into Syracuse in 2020, and attended the school for his freshman year between 2020-2021. However, he did not return for his sophomore year, per Syracuse.
In 2022, Man About Town wrote that Jake was spending time in London auditioning for roles "in between his studies," but it is unclear whether he is currently in school.
Jake is a budding actor.
Although he doesn't have any credits to his name yet, Jake is auditioning and hoping to break into acting. His Instagram bio currently identifies himself as an "actor/producer/all around cool guy."
He is set to appear in two upcoming projects: Sweethearts (a romantic comedy starring Kiernan Shipka and Nico Hiraga) and Rockbottom (a comedy starring Tom Everett Scott and McKaley Miller).
Jake and Millie met over Instagram.
Ah yes, as all contemporary celeb couples form, Jake and Millie met over Instagram. In an interview with WIRED in 2022, Millie revealed that the couple were friends first, then became more. "What can I say?" she said, in reference to the couple's relationship.
They went "Instagram official" in June 2021, in a since-deleted post, per The Daily Mail. Since, the couple has shared plenty of peeks into the relationship over the app.
Jake supports Millie on and off the red carpet.
The couple made their first red carpet appearance together in 2022 for the EE British Academy Film Awards.
Since, they've appeared together for the latest Stranger Things premiere, and Enola Holmes 2.
They spend holidays together.
Millie and Jake spent Thanksgiving getting ready for Christmas together (I mean, can you blame them?) in 2022. Millie posted an adorable video of the couple decorating their tree, complete with "M" and "J" ornaments.
"all I want for christmas is uuuuuuuuuu," Millie wrote in the caption. Even Mariah Carey herself commented on the adorable, yet early Christmas decorating. "Living for this!!!! (But it’s soooo early!!!) 😁❤️❤️❤️🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄," the "All I Want For Christmas Is You" singer wrote under Millie's post.
It's unclear when they got engaged.
Jake and Millie have yet to comment on their engagement, but it is clear that a proposal happened.
Rumors have been circulating around the couple's relationship status for a few months, particularly after Millie posted a photo wearing that diamond ring in March 2023. The pair were spotted at an airport in Milan in April 2023, and based on the photos it seems they're looking for a little privacy.
