Millie Bobby Brown and Boyfriend Jake Bongiovi’s Relationship Timeline: From ‘BFFs’ to Serious Romance

Actress Millie Bobby Brown and her boyfriend, Jake Bongiovi, aren’t strangers to the spotlight. The pair have been officially dating for years after they were first spotted holding hands in June 2021. Fans have watched their romance blossom via social media over the years, and the duo even sparked engagement speculation in April 2023. 

The couple confirmed their romance in June 2021 when Jake first shared a photo with the Stranger Things actress via Instagram. “BFF <3,” he captioned the selfie. 

That same month, the pair were photographed together holding hands while strolling around New York City. Neither has officially confirmed how they became acquainted, but the young stars likely share overlapping famous social circles. 

Jake, who is the son of rockstar Jon Bon Jovi and wife Dorothea Hurley, attended Pennington High School in New Jersey from 2016 to 2020, according to Us Weekly

Before confirming her romance with Jake, Millie dated Joseph Robinson and YouTube star Jacob Sartorius

Millie confirmed her relationship status during a January 2022 interview with Seventeen. At the time, the actress revealed her favorite Olivia Rodrigo song and said, “I love ‘1 Step Forward 3 Steps Back.’ It makes me wanna cry every time. I think my boyfriend’s gonna kill me if I listen to it around him anymore.”

Later that year, Millie and Jake made their first public appearance together during the March 2022 British Academy Film Awards in London, Millie’s first-ever attendance at the event. Since then, they have continued to make their relationship more public. 

They have been sharing photos of each other on Instagram from their travels and nights out with friends. They have also been attending events together for the premiere of Stranger Things season 4

She even teased her real life romance with her on-screen beau with a behind-the-scenes picture from the show where she is in full Eleven mode. “When two worlds collide,” she captioned her May 2022 Instagram post in the middle of Jake and costar Finn Wolfhard

The same month, Millie posted a carousel of photos on Instagram for her love’s 20th birthday. She included a beach day photo, a little PDA action and a video of Jake being silly with a lightsaber. “Happy birthday baby, can’t wait to fly to the moon and back with you!
