Millie Bobby Brown and her boyfriend made things Twitter official and people are furious
With its quirky sci-fi premise, Stranger Things quickly took the world by storm in 2016. The standout stars, however, were the kids. Not only have their real-life counterparts earned a one-way ticket to superstardom, but their portrayal of the children even managed to outshine that of their adult co-stars. Millie Bobby Brown is now walking down runways in her spare time, and rest of the young actors have secured roles in other productions since working on the Duffer Brothers' hit series.
As such, they have become the subject of much tabloid speculation. Millie Bobby Brown, in particular, has been rumoured to be dating YouTuber Jacob Sartorius, and the gossip columnists just won't let up. Certainly - the pair just made their relationship official on Twitter - in what will surely become one of the great love stories of our time.
The love-birds have posed together in New Year's selfies and sent Twitter users into breakdown after commenting with hearts on each other's Instagram accounts. And now, they've finally confirmed they're dating - on Valentine's Day no less.
"Happy Valentine's day J," Millie wrote to accompany a picture of herself with the 15-year-old. Jacob also posted an homage to his lady-love on Twitter, saying "Happy valentine’s day.. see you soon," complete with a heart emoji.
This precious expression of young love made many social media users emotional, and left them reminiscing about their own childhood sweethearts.
"WEEWOO WEEWOO MY HEART," one Stranger Things fan wrote, while another added "You guys look adorable! Happy Valentine’s Day!"
The country of Brazil was also very supportive of the relationship, as evidenced by the following tweet: "Happy valentine's day, Millie. i'm so proud of you, very happy for you! i only hope the best for you. Brazil loves you so much, never forget that!"
Other people weren't so happy, though, with one individual stating "I don’t know how i feel about this. i mean they cute, but my main gal millie can do so much better." Another simply added, "Like, I know we joke about Jacob but I am the definition of shocked."
Though Millie and Jacob haven't explicitly said that they're "boyfriend" and "girlfriend", I think that posting those kinds of pictures with those kind of captions on Valentine's Day is evidence enough. And let's not forget that they're still kids, so let's keep it PG on here, folks.
However, this is not the only bombshell that the 13-year-old Stranger Things star has dropped of late. When speaking to Variety, the British national revealed that she has never trained professionally as an actor. At the age of eight, Millie reportedly decided that she wanted to pursue a career in the entertainment industry, and her parents obliged, moving her and her siblings from Bournemouth, England, to Orlando, Florida.
The Stranger Things actor explained that "it was like a bug".
"I know this sounds crazy, but once I find something I want to do, nobody’s stopping me. If I don’t know how to sew, and I really had that passion to sew, that’s it, I’m going to sew. That’s also with acting. So here I am."
Well, there you have it. It appears that Millie Bobbie Brown has had quite the year, and given how talented she is, I'm sure that it's only going to get better and better.
