Millie Bobby Brown, the star of the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things,” has announced her engagement to her boyfriend, Jake Bongiovi. The couple shared the news on their social media accounts, posting photos of the engagement ring and a heartfelt message.
Brown, who is 17 years old, has been dating Bongiovi, the son of rocker Jon Bon Jovi, for over a year. The couple has been relatively private about their relationship, but they have occasionally shared glimpses of their lives together on social media.
In her announcement post, Brown wrote, “My heart is full. I love you more than anything in this world, Jake. And forever isn’t long enough to spend with you.” Bongiovi shared a similar message, writing, “I’m the luckiest man to have you by my side. I can’t wait to grow old with you. I love you more than words could describe.”
Fans of the actress and the couple have flooded social media with congratulations and well wishes. Many have expressed surprise at the news, given Brown’s young age, but have also noted that she seems mature beyond her years.
Brown rose to fame with her role as Eleven on “Stranger Things,” which premiered in 2016 and quickly became a cultural phenomenon. The show has since become one of Netflix’s most popular original series and has garnered critical acclaim and numerous awards.
In addition to her acting career, Brown is also a model and has been the face of several high-profile campaigns. She has also been involved in various charitable causes, including UNICEF and the fight against bullying.
Bongiovi, on the other hand, is a college student and has largely stayed out of the public eye. He is the second oldest of Jon Bon Jovi’s four children.
