Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven on the smash Netflix series Stranger Things, suggested this week that she was engaged to her boyfriend, Jake Bongiovi.
If her future spouse looks familiar, it could be owing to his similarity to his famous father, rock musician Jon Bon Jovi. Jake is the third child of the musician.

Brown, 19, and Bongiovi, 20, are supposedly engaged. They’ve been together since 2021.
The announcement elicited varied emotions from fans, with many believing Millie Bobby Brown is too young to get married – after all, most of us watched her grow up on Stranger Things.
However, the couple appears to be in love. Bongiovi posted images of the two on Instagram with the remark “Forever.”
Brown said in November that she met her fiance on social media. “We met on Instagram, and we were friends for a while, and then…” She told Wired about it.
Last March, the couple made their red carpet debut together at the 2022 BAFTA Awards.
While Brown is the more well-known of the two, Bongiovi is showbiz royalty in his own right: he is the son of legendary rocker Jon Bon Jovi. Jake bears a striking resemblance to his renowned father from his youth.
With his wife Dorothea Hurley, the “Livin’ on a Prayer” singer has four children. Dorothea was his high school love, and they married in 1989.
Jake is the youngest of the couple’s four children. Stephanie Rose, 29, Jesse, 28, and Romeo, 19, are his siblings.
According to NJ.com, Jake was a high school activist who organised a school walkout to demand action against school shootings. “Enough is enough.” We’ve seen it far too many times,” Jake told the magazine when he was 15 years old.
Jake attended Poly Prep Country Day School, according to Elle.
Jake went to Syracuse University. According to an Instagram photo, Jake was dressed in Syracuse attire with his ecstatic parents, and the rock singer apparently assisted his kid in moving in. Jake, however, did not return for his sophomore year, according to the institution.
Jake may resemble his famous father, but he has no plans to follow in his father’s footsteps as a rock star; instead, he wants to be an actor.
While he has yet to make his acting debut, he has two projects in the works: he was cast in the HBO Max film Sweethearts, which is set to conclude filming in August 2022.
He was also cast in the comedy Rockbottom, which is said to be about a hair metal band. According to Variety, Jake will play Justin, the “potential new lead singer” who “must overcome stage fright to lead the band back to glory.”
Jake Bongiovi has grown up and looks exactly like his famous father! We wish him all the best in his marriage to Millie Bobby Brown!
