For casual fans of the actress and the show, the news will come as quite a shock as it seems like just yesterday when Millie was a tiny child flipping things over with her mind powers in the hit Netflix series. The actress was 11 years old during the filming of the first season, and is now 19 years old and engaged to her boyfriend Jake Bongiovi.

The happy couple made an indirect announcement via Millie's Instagram post of a black and white photo of the two in embrace and a ring on her fourth finger. Accompanying the romantic post was the caption "I've loved you three summers now, honey, I want 'em all", a lyric from Taylor Swift's song Lover.

Millie Bobby Brown and Jake Bongiovi met through Instagram and started dating some time in 2021. He made an appearance on her Instagram account for the first time in November 2021.

We know what's the burning question on your mind - Who is Jake Bongiovi? If you have an inkling he's not just a regular non-famous normie (as celebrities often date other celebrities), you're right and the clue is in his last name!

Jake is the son of John Francis Bongiovi Jr. who is more commonly known as Jon Bon Jovi, the 90s rockstar behind singles like "Livin On A Prayer" and "It's My Life". He's 20 years old and is about to make his acting debut in an upcoming romantic comedy.

While there are disapproving comments because of their young ages, most fans seem to be supportive and happy for the two.

Congratulations to Mille and Jake, we're looking forward to seeing their wedding photos!
