Millie Bobby Brown Shares The Impact Of Jon Bon Jovi’s Blessing

The ‘Stranger Things’ actress Millie Bobby Brown, 19, opened up about her engagement to Jake Bongiovi, 21, in a recent interview with The Sunday Times. Brown also recalled receiving Jon Bon Jovi’s blessing, describing the moment as a profound affirmation of her place in the Bongiovi family:

“His family are wonderful people who welcomed me with open arms. I’m really grateful to be a part of their world.”

Bon Jovi had given the couple his public blessing this past May during an appearance on Andy Cohen. Although some criticized the couple for making such a decision when they were this young, Jon showed his support for his son and Millie by 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 the people that they think they can grow together with, and we like them all. Millie is wonderful. Her whole family is great. Jake is very, very happy.”

Millie also recalled when she knew Jake was the one for her during her interview with The Sunday Times. She expressed:

“I ran to my mum and said, ‘I really, really like him!’ After we met we knew we never wanted to leave each other’s side. 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.”

The ‘Enola Holmes’ actress shared that she didn’t have any doubts over her decision by adding:

“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.”
