Millie Bobby Brown is absolutely everywhere right now. And as the cliche goes, if you haven’t at least heard the name Millie Bobby Brown, you must well and truly be living under a rock.
At the age of only 13, she has filmed two hugely successful seasons of the Netflix original series, Stranger Things. Since the show’s inception, she has captivated millions of people all over the world with her very moving portrayal of Eleven. Not to mention, some of her biggest fans include ultra-famous celebrities such as Blake Lively and Miley Cyrus. Plus she has the likes of Drake fangirling over her, and even managed to get the rapper to be her plus one at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards. And while it may seem like her life couldn’t get any more perfect, apparently, it could. According to reports, the young actress has started dating, and she seems to be happier than ever. In fact, a seemingly excited Millie has now “gone public” on her relationship with the slightly older celebrity. And yes, while it would be the icing on the cake if Millie and her Stranger Things love interest Finn Wolfhard were legitimately dating, this is apparently not the case. Her supposed boyfriend isn’t even a fellow actor. No siree, her new bae is the one and only Jacob Sartorious, Viner/Musical.ly extraordinaire. And if you don’t know who the kid is, what he does and how he became famous, it has a little something to do with the popularity of a certain lip-syncing app, “Musical.ly”. Oh, and he also makes his own music.
The 15-year-old singer is also known for the kind of tweets he posts on Twitter; tweets that reveal what a true romantic he is. As of yet, there is no conclusive evidence that the pair is actually together. But the following photo suggests otherwise. Despite the fact there is very little photographic evidence of the young stars together in public, their activity on social media strongly suggests that they are a thing. People started initially becoming suspicious when Millie shared a picture of them the two of them on her Instagram in October last year. Then Millie liked one of Jacob’s tweets; a tweet which read: “just another day w you on my mind.” Not long after that, Millie turned to Instagram and fuelled the suspicions even further. She posted an adorable photo of herself with a huge teddy bear, writing “Thanks for the bear”, without specifying who it was she was thanking. Luckily, it turns out that Jacob isn’t really one to keep things under wraps and he left a comment proving beyond the shadow of a doubt that he was the one who had made this undeniably romantic gesture. “Course,” he replied with a heart emoji. Now Twitter users all over the world had all the proof they needed that Millie Bobby Brown was dating Jacob Satorius. And many of them had no qualms about sharing their thoughts on the news. Twitter user @arafreeman wrote: “the fact that millie bobby brown and jacob sartorius have a thing going on is PROOF that we’re in a black mirror episode [sic].” There were also quite a few social media users who expressed disappointment with the news that the two were dating. “jacob satorius dating millie bobby brown is like jake paul dating meryl streep [sic],” @noxortis tweeted in response to the speculations. If recent reports are to be believed, Millie and Jacob celebrated New Year’s Eve together. Apparently, they were with Millie’s family at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Cute, right? So it certainly seems like the two young stars are a couple. And I say, good luck to them! Ignore the haters because who knows what will come of the relationship. They may even end up lasting long enough to be childhood sweethearts who went on to marry.
