Millie Bobby Brown Reveals How Fiancé Jake Bongiovi Changed Her Stance on Marriage

Millie Bobby Brown Talks Leaving Stranger Things Behind

Jake Bongiovi turned Millie Bobby Brown's world upside down when it comes to marriage. 

In fact, the Stranger Things star—who announced her engagement to Jon Bon Jovi's 21-year-old son in April—recently revealed she didn't always see herself tying the knot. 

"That wasn't my dream," Millie, 19, told Glamour for one of its Women of the Year cover stories published Oct. 16. "My dream was to have a baby."

All that changed when she met Jake.

"I wanted to be the woman that my mom is to me and I wanted to be the woman that my grandmother was to me," the actress continued. "So that was never my, like, intention, to be a wife. But after meeting Jake and seeing, 'Oh, I don't have to be this stereotypical wife for him. He doesn't want me to be that either. He wants me to go and do my thing and live my life, and he will hold my hand in the process of that.' I was like, 'Oh, I do want this.'"

When Millie first met her fiancé in 2021, she had been reeling from what she previously told Allure was an "unhealthy situation" with TikToker Hunter Ecimovic. But with Jake, she's learned to love herself—and him in return.

"I think I was so afraid to be a strong woman in a relationship," the Enola Holmes alum told Glamour, later adding, "When I met Jake, I just felt I could be loud. He embraced that and encouraged that. And I fell in love with myself while being with him."
