Millie Bobby Brown & Jake Bongiovi’s Relationship Timeline Just Got A *Major* Update

Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown and Jake Bongiovi appeared to confirm their engagement on Instagram on April 11. In a black-and-white shot of the couple where Brown was wearing a ring, Brown captioned her post, “I’ve loved you three summers now, honey, I want ’em all 🤍.” Her Campus reached out Brown’s team for comment, but did not hear back by the time of publication.

Brown has found time for a relationship amid her many different roles on and off the screen. She owns a beauty line named Florence by Mills, produces and acts in movies and television shows, and is also a Purdue University student. It’s safe to say Brown has a lot going on, so Bongiovi must be pretty special. 

Bongiovi is 20 years old and the son of the rock legend Jon Bon Jovi, making him no stranger to the limelight. According to his Instagram bio, he’s an actor and producer. He hasn’t had any lead roles yet, but according to Variety, he will star in a new comedy, Rockbottom, alongside Tom Everett Scott

The couple keeps their Instagram pretty updated with photos of each other, but I’ve compiled a complete relationship timeline of Brown and Bongiovi to catch you up.
