NOT SO STRANGEStranger Things Star Millie Bobby Brown, 20, Secretly Marries Jake Bongiovi, 22

“Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown, 20, has reportedly married Jake Bongiovi, 22, the model son of rock legend Jon Bon Jovi. According to close sources, the young couple, who announced their engagement last year, quietly exchanged vows last weekend in the United States.

The intimate ceremony was attended by a select group of family members, including Jon Bon Jovi and Millie’s parents. “Millie and Jake quietly said their vows in America last weekend,” a source revealed. “They are planning a bigger ceremony in the US later this year but now they have legally married and done all the paperwork. It was a very low-key, romantic affair with their closest family with them as they said their vows.”

Jon Bon Jovi, who has been supportive of the young couple’s relationship, drew parallels between their love story and his own. Reflecting on his marriage to his wife Dorothea in 1989, Jon said, “I’ve gotten to know her in the last year, she works really hard, and she and Jake will grow together in their own way. It is an accelerated version of what I went through 40 years ago and I think, with the support of family around them, they’re going to be great together.”

Millie and Jake’s romance began in 2021, culminating in a memorable engagement last spring. Jake’s proposal was nothing short of cinematic, featuring a ring inside a shell during a scuba dive. However, the romantic gesture had its moment of drama. Millie recounted, “He puts the ring on my hand and as I go to show him, the ring falls off my finger, plummets so fast, it was like a cinematic movie. Jake threw himself so deep, the diver was like, ‘You can’t do that, like your ears. Literally your brain will explode.’”

Millie and Jake have embraced the wedding planning process wholeheartedly. Millie shared, “I have loved every second of it. It’s been an unbelievable journey. Every time we have a new wedding meeting, Jake and I take a picture to capture the moment of the planning process. He’s loving every second of it. I haven’t been met with a stressful time yet, and I think that’s a reflection on how ready and excited we are to do it.”

The news of their secret wedding has surprised fans, many of whom have followed Millie’s journey from her breakout role as Eleven on Netflix’s “Stranger Things” to her blossoming relationship with Jake.

In March, it was revealed that Millie’s ‘Stranger’ dad, Matthew Modine, aka Dr. Brenner would officiate the wedding. | Credit: Netflix
