Millie Bobby Brown is in her final year of adolescence, but she is certain that marrying her 21-year-old fiancé Jake Bongiovi, whom she has been dating for more than two years, is the correct next step for her.
Brown responded to people who criticized her for marrying so young in a new interview with Glamour, claiming that she has learnt to trust her gut about the correct timing throughout her life.
“I feel like I should start making this movie right away. I know I should start writing this book right now. “I know I should do this right now,” she admitted. “It’s not because I can’t do it in ten years; I can do it in ten years.” But why should I when I know it’s going to work now? Florence [her beauty line] will be there in ten years. My film will be shown on television in ten years. And I know Jake and I will be fine.” She inherited that mindset from her family and how they tackled her acting career, she noted. “It’s as if, why wait? “Let’s do it.”
Millie Bobby Brown and Jack Bongiovi both have parents who married when they were young and are still together. “We were modeled wonderful, loving relationships,” she went on to say. “So it’s something that we both had that mutual drive for.” They are also connected to both families. “His family were so wonderfully accepting of me and embraced me, and it’s so nice to find a second family in that.”
Millie Bobby Brown also admitted to falling in love with him. Before dating him, she recalls, “I think I was so afraid to be a strong woman in a relationship.” She was hesitant to take up too much room.
“When I met Jake, I just felt I could be loud,” she told me. “He embraced and encouraged it.” During my time with him, I also fell in love with myself.
She then mentioned a particular conversation between the two of them. “I was like, ‘Why do you love me?'” she said. “And then he listed all the things I despised about myself.” ‘You see good in those things?’ I asked. And he said, ‘Of course I do.’ Those are the aspects of myself that I now appreciate. He was a key part of me starting to love myself and becoming a lady. It was as though I was thinking, ‘Wow, I really love this person because he allows me to love myself.'”
“He’s incredibly kind,” she continued. “And his heart is pure and wonderful and brilliant.” “My dream was to have a baby,” she said of marriage. I aspired to be the woman my mother is to me, as well as the woman my grandmother was to me. So it was never my aim to be a wife. But after meeting Jake and realizing, ‘Oh, I don’t have to be this stereotyped wife for him,’ she changed her mind. He, too, does not want me to be that. He wants me to go do my thing and live my life, and he’ll hold my hand through the process.’ “I thought, ‘Oh, I do want this.'”
