Millie Bobby Brown, renowned for her portrayal of Eleven on the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things,” made headlines this week by suggesting that she is engaged to her boyfriend, Jake Bongiovi.
If Jake Bongiovi looks familiar, it’s likely because of his striking resemblance to his famous father, rock musician Jon Bon Jovi. Jake is the third child of the legendary rocker.
Millie Bobby Brown, 19, and Jake Bongiovi, 20, are reportedly engaged. They’ve been together since 2021.
The news of their engagement has elicited a range of emotions from fans. Many have expressed the sentiment that Millie Bobby Brown is too young to get married, considering that most of her fans watched her grow up on “Stranger Things.” However, the couple seems to be deeply in love. Jake Bongiovi shared photos of the two on Instagram with the caption “Forever.”
Millie Bobby Brown revealed in November that she met her fiancé on social media. She told Wired, “We met on Instagram, and we were friends for a while, and then…”
In March of the same year, the couple made their red carpet debut together at the 2022 BAFTA Awards.
While Millie Bobby Brown is undoubtedly more famous, Jake Bongiovi has showbiz royalty in his blood as the son of the legendary rocker Jon Bon Jovi. Jake bears a strong resemblance to his famous father, particularly in his youth.
Jon Bon Jovi and his wife, Dorothea Hurley, have four children together. Dorothea was Jon’s high school sweetheart, and they got married in 1989. Jake is the youngest of their four children. His siblings are Stephanie Rose (29), Jesse (28), and Romeo (19).
Jake Bongiovi made headlines as a high school activist when he organized a school walkout to demand action against school shootings, declaring, “Enough is enough. We’ve seen it far too many times,” when he was just 15 years old.
He attended Poly Prep Country Day School and later enrolled at Syracuse University. There’s an Instagram photo of Jake in Syracuse attire with his delighted parents, and it appears that his rockstar dad assisted him with his move-in. However, Jake didn’t return for his sophomore year at the institution.
While Jake may look like his famous father, he has different career aspirations. He aims to become an actor, although he has yet to make his acting debut. He has two projects in the works: he was cast in the HBO Max film “Sweethearts,” which was set to conclude filming in August 2022. Additionally, he secured a role in the comedy “Rockbottom,” described as a film about a hair metal band. In “Rockbottom,” Jake will portray Justin, the “potential new lead singer” who “must overcome stage fright to lead the band back to glory,” according to Variety.
Jake Bongiovi is all grown up and bears a striking resemblance to his famous father. We wish him the best in his upcoming marriage to Millie Bobby Brown!
