Stranger Things fans couldn’t believe their eyes when Millie Bobby Brown’s Instagram post popped up earlier today, appearing to confirm the 19-year-old’s engagement to Jake Bongiovi, 20.
Several celebrities have rushed to congratulate the Enola Holmes actress on her news, including her co-star and close friend Noah Schnapp, 18.
In her unexpected social media post, Millie uploaded a black-and-white photo of herself beaming from ear to ear with a huge diamond on the fourth finger of her left hand, as Jake stood with his arms wrapped around her.
In the caption, she quoted Taylor Swift lyrics as she wrote: ‘I’ve loved you three summers now, honey, I want ’em all 🤍.’
In the comments, Noah – who plays Will Byers in Stranger Things, opposite Millie’s Eleven – wrote: ‘OH MY GOD CONGRATS.’
Jamie Campbell Bower, 34, who played the horrifying villain Vecna in the most recent fourth season of the Netflix show, added a row of heart emojis.
Gordon Ramsay’s daughter, Tilly Ramsay, joined in the chorus of congratulations, while former The Only Way Is Essex star Jess Wright added: ‘Ommmmggggg congratulations!!!!!!!!! @milliebobbybrown this is amazing. So so happy for you darling.’
Former Love Island contestant Montana Brown commented: ‘Congrats beautiful,’ while High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale said: ‘Congrats beauty!!!’
While some criticised Millie for seemingly getting engaged at 19 years old, others were quick to jump to her defence.
A beauty YouTuber who goes by the handle RawBeautyKristi supported her by stating: ‘I never comment on celebrities posts, but to anyone saying “too young” or “young people can’t actually work out” – my husband and I have been together since we were 15/17 and were coming up on 18 years together!
‘You can be in love and know REAL love in your teens and be even MORE in love in your 30s. It’s possible and wonderful. Congratulations you two!’
Fans of Millie’s were astounded that she quoted Taylor Swift lyrics in her Instagram post, especially as the words were taken from the singer’s hit song Lover, a track she wrote for Joe Alwyn, who she has reportedly split from after six years.
‘Oh my god the Lover lyrics I’m crying,’ one person said, while another remarked: ‘She’s in her Lover era.’
Stranger Things is available to watch on Netflix.
