Millie Bobby Brown, Jake Bongiovi are married—report

Celebrity couple Millie Bobby Brown and Jake Bongiovi have tied the knot in a private wedding this May.

The Sun reported that the Stranger Things star secretly exchanged vows with Jake, who is the son of rocker Jon Bon Jovi, in a ceremony held last weekend.

The news outlet detailed that both the couples' parents were in attendance, with a source saying, "It was a very low-key, romantic affair with their closest family with them as they said their vows."

Despite officially becoming husband and wife, the source said that the two "are planning a bigger ceremony in the US later this year but now they have legally married and done all the paperwork."

Millie, 20, announced their engagement on her Instagram account in April last year, sharing a black-and-white picture of her and her 22-year-old boyfriend. Eagle-eyed fans quickly noticed a diamond ring on her ring finger.

In her guest appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the actress revealed that they were in the middle of an underwater excursion when Jake popped the question to her through a proposal gimmick.

"He gives me like a shell and I like, turn it over and it’s a ring," Millie recounted.

"I think it was underwhelming, but we freaked out," she continued, sharing that she had to do a thumbs-up signal to go to the surface as they had some trouble communicating underwater.

But the experience didn't end there as Millie almost lost the ring.

"He puts the ring on my hand and as I go to show him the ring falls off my finger, plummets like, so fast, it was like a cinematic movie," she said.

"Jake threw himself, like so deep, like the diver was like, 'You can’t do that, like your ears ... literally your brain will explode.' He does a cinematic grab, opens and he saved the ring," she went on.

Because of this act, Millie regarded it as a "reflection of who he is."

"I feel like we’re always going to have each other's back and if anyone drops the ball, we got it," she highlighted.

The pair made their relationship official back in November 2021 after Millie posted a sweet photo of Jake kissing her on the cheek during a ride at the London Eye ferris wheel.

Prior to this, romance rumors between them had already been circulating after they were seen walking hand-in-hand in New York City.
