Engaged to Millie Bobby Brown

At the age of 20, Jake Bongiovi is reportedly engaged to 19-year-old Millie Bobby Brown. The couple has been together since 2021, and while some fans were taken aback by the news, they seem deeply in love. Jake shared adorable photos of the two on Instagram, captioning one with “Forever ,” while Millie shared her own photo with Taylor Swift lyrics expressing her love for Jake.

In an interview, Millie revealed that they first connected on Instagram and became friends before their romantic relationship blossomed. The couple made their red carpet debut at the 2022 BAFTA Awards.

Jon Bon Jovi’s Son

Although Millie Bobby Brown is more widely known, Jake Bongiovi comes from show biz royalty as the son of rock legend Jon Bon Jovi. It’s hard not to see the resemblance between Jake and his famous dad when you compare their photos. Jon Bon Jovi and his wife, Dorothea Hurley, have been married since 1989 and have four children together.

Jake is the third oldest among his siblings, Stephanie Rose, Jesse, and Romeo. He has shown a passion for activism and made headlines during high school for organizing a walkout to protest against school shootings. Jake attended Poly Prep Country Day School, where he also played football.

After high school, Jake enrolled at Syracuse University. His proud parents even helped him move in on his first day. Although he didn’t return for his sophomore year, Jake has been pursuing his dreams in the entertainment industry.

Aspiring Actor

While his father is known for his rock star status, Jake has set his sights on becoming an actor. Although he’s yet to make his debut, he already has two projects in the pipeline. He was cast in the HBO Max film, Sweethearts, which finished production in August 2022. Additionally, Jake landed a role in the comedy Rockbottom, a film about a hair metal band. He will portray Justin, the potential new lead singer who must conquer stage fright to bring the band back to its former glory.

Jake Bongiovi is all grown up and making his own mark in the world. With his engagement to Millie Bobby Brown and his budding acting career, we wish him the best in all his future endeavors!
