Jon Bon Jovi Gushed Over His Son Jake Bongiovi and Millie Bobby Brown's Wedding

They tied the knot in a discreet, intimate ceremony.



Millie Bobby Brown and Jake Bongiovi can officially call each other husband and wife. On May 24, People confirmed the two wed in a private ceremony the weekend prior. The event was an intimate one with only a few of their loved ones in attendance, including Bongiovi's parents, Jon and Dorothea, and Brown's parents, Kelly and Robert.

It seemed Bongiovi's rockstar dad couldn't have been happier to see their union. He appeared on BBC's The One Show on May 28 to confirm their discreet nuptials and absolutely gushed over their love.

"They're great, they're absolutely fantastic," Bon Jovi told hosts Lauren Laverne and Roman Kemp. "It was a very small family wedding and the bride looked gorgeous and Jake is happy as can be."

A source told The Sun, the couple plans to have a larger ceremony later this year.

Brown and Bongiovi's relationship is what modern, Gen Z romance dreams are made of. They first met online during the summer of 2021, and quickly became an item. Brown hard-launched their relationship on Instagram in November of that year, and really put their love in the spotlight when they made their red carpet debut at the British Academy Film Awards on March 13, 2022.

After two years of dating, the couple got engaged. Once again, they took to Instagram to announce the news. Brown shared an emotional black-and-white snap of Bongiovi hugging her from behind as she displayed a massive engagement ring. She captioned the image, "I've loved you three summers now, honey, I want 'em all 🤍," a clear reference to Taylor Swift's "Lovers."

Their engagement came with quite an eventful story. Brown opened up to Jimmy Fallon about how Bongiovi popped the question underwater while on a dive; she accidentally dropped the ring, which her then-fiancé so valiantly saved.



Leading up to their union, Brown disclosed how she felt about their wedding preparations to Women's Wear Daily, noting that "it's such an exciting time in my life." Although she was finding the whole process "so fun," she shared she wished to keep the more intimate details private.

“I think probably drawing the curtains, just because there are only so many moments in life that you get only once. And to have everyone’s opinions and eyes looking at that just feels unnatural to me,” she told the publication. “So I feel it’s important to keep those things, those small precious moments in life, really close to your chest."
