After two years of dating, actress Millie Bobby Brown (20) and Jake Bongiovi (21) got engaged in April 2023.

The couple were recently joined by Jake’s parents, Jon Bon Jovi and Dorothea Hurley, on the red carpet for Millie’s new movie: Damsel.

Jake and Millie first sparked relationship rumours in June 2021, when Jake uploaded a selfie of the two together. 

The couple’s relationship was seemingly confirmed two weeks later when they were photographed holding hands while out and about in New York City.

In March 2022, the pair made their red carpet debut as a couple, attending the 2022 EE British Academy Film Awards together.

On 11 April 2023, the couple shared the exciting news that they were engaged, with Millie uploading a photo to Instagram of the happy couple. She captioned the photo “I’ve loved you three summers now, honey, I want ‘em all,” quoting Taylor Swift’s song Lover.

A few weeks after their Instagram announcement, Jake’s father Jon Bon Jovi spoke about his son’s big news, saying: “I don’t know if age matters. If you find the right partner and you grow together […] my advice really is growing together is wise.

“I think that all of my kids have found people that they think they can grow together with and we like them all.”

The Bon Jovi frontman added: “Millie is wonderful. Her whole family is great. Jake is very, very happy.”

Millie revealed that she instantly knew Jake was “the one”. 

“After we met, we knew we never wanted to leave each other’s side,” she said. “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,” Millie continued.

Millie has recently spoken out about the pair’s proposal, sharing the hilarious story about how it almost went wrong. The couple were scuba diving while on vacation when Jake decided to pop the question.

“We go under, and we’re many metres down. He gives me a shell and I turn it over and it’s a ring,” the 20-year-old shared during an appearance on The Tonight Show.

“Anyways, he puts the ring on my hand, and as I go to show him, the ring falls off my finger, plummets like, so fast, it was like a cinematic movie,” she said. “Jake threw himself, like so deep, and he saved the ring. It’s a reflection of who he is. We’re always going to have each other’s back and if anyone drops the ball, we got it.”

Millie first opened up about how she met her now-fiancee in November 2022, sharing that they met via Instagram and were friends for a while before their relationship developed further.

Since their romance was first confirmed, Millie and Jake have continually uploaded adorable photos together on social media.

Both of their families are extremely supportive of their relationship, with Jon Bon Jovi describing Millie as “wonderful”, and saying she makes his son very happy.
