This week, Stranger Things‘ Millie Bobby Brown and her fiancé, Jake Bongiovi, had an engagement party for friends and family just three months after announcing they were planning to get married on social media. Brown’s hairstylist Pete Burkill shared a few pics from the event on Thursday, showing the couple standing together in front of a bunch of white balloons and a sign that read “Mr & Mrs Bongiovi.”
They were both stylishly dressed, with Brown wearing a two piece composed of a crop top and form fitting skirt made from cream-colored lace. The look was from Italian designer Giambattista Valli, and trimmed with even more lace in gorgeous loops. The skirt had the same lace down the split in front, held together by buttons. Brown had her brunette hair down in smooth waves and wore a natural but flawless makeup palette.
Bongiovi was wearing an olive green suit over a white button down with a brown leather belt.
“Congrats to this beautiful couple!” Burkill wrote in the caption.
The pair have been dating since 2021, and are quite open about their romance on Instagram. Some fans were still shocked that the pair had decided to get married, as Brown is only 19-years-old and Bongiovi is 21. His father, rock star Jon Bon Jovi addressed their youth in an interview with Andy Cohen, saying, “I don’t know if age matters, you know, if you find the right partner and you grow together. I think that would be my advice, really, is growing together is wise. Growing together. And so, I think that all of my kids have found the people that they think they can grow together with, and we like them all.”
Bon Jovi has been married to his wife Dorothea Hurley for 32 years, and they met nine years before their wedding while still in high school. They share four children and their son clearly doesn’t see anything wrong with making an early commitment.
