In a revealing interview with The Times U.K., the iconic "Always" singer discussed his positive impressions of Brown and his hopes for the young couple's future.

At just 20 years old, Brown has already made a significant impact on both her audience and her soon-to-be father-in-law. Jon Bon Jovi highlighted her commendable work ethic, noting, "I’ve gotten to know her in the last year, she works really hard." He warmly added, "She and Jake will grow together in their own way." Reflecting on his own experiences of young love, the 62-year-old musician drew parallels between his early relationship with his wife, Dorothea, and the young couple’s budding romance.

He reminisced about his accelerated rise to fame and how the strong support from family helped him navigate those transformative years. "It is an accelerated version of what I went through 40 years ago," he commented, optimistic about the support system surrounding Brown and Jake, "With the support of family around them, they’re gonna be great together."

From Classmates to Soulmates

The love story between Brown and Jake Bongiovi first captured public attention in June 2021, blossoming into an engagement by April 2023.

The trajectory of their relationship mirrors the swift and deep connection Jon Bon Jovi experienced with Dorothea. The couple met during their high school years in New Jersey and maintained a strong bond through the heights of Bon Jovi's rock stardom, eventually marrying in a spontaneous Las Vegas ceremony in 1989.

In his interview, Jon fondly recalled how he met Dorothea, sharing, "She sat next to me in history class. We’re from the same place, we’re the same age, and she was with me when I had less than zero, so we went on the journey together." As for Millie Bobby Brown, the accomplished actress recently celebrated her third anniversary with Jake in a sweet Instagram story.

She posted a playful photo of them cuddling, captioned, "Three years of bliss. Love you best friend." This union marks a new chapter for two families intertwined by their young stars' romance, set against the backdrop of Hollywood and rock and roll heritage.

With the wisdom of their elders and the fervor of their youth, Brown and Bongiovi are poised to embark on a journey of love and partnership in the spotlight.
