Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has sparked rumours she’s engaged to boyfriend Jake Bongiovi after a year of dating.

Millie and Jake were spotted indulging in a spot of PDA while out and about in New York City earlier this week, but what really got fans talking was the sizeable gold diamond ring she was sporting on THAT finger.

The couple were first linked last June and finally went public in October after months of speculation. Millie made her debut on Jake’s Instagram when he captured a selfie of them on a CCTV camera and shared it with his 1million followers.

So, with Millie potentially to walk down the aisle, here’s everything you need to know about her boyfriend Jake – including his extremely famous father…
