Millie Bobby Brown has revealed why she won't let the legendary Bon Jovi sing at her wedding, despite her marrying his son.

Brown, famed for her role in Stranger Things, recently gave fans a glimpse into the wedding preparations for her upcoming nuptials to 21-year-old Jacob Bongiovi, the son of legendary rocker Jon Bon Jovi.

The couple, who announced their engagement in April after two years of dating, appears to be taking a unique approach to their big day.

While it might be tempting to have a rock 'n' roll legend perform at the wedding, Brown, 19, assured fans that her future father-in-law won't be taking the stage.

Watch Brown's interview below:

During a recent appearance on Today, the actress said: "I feel like that's asking me to go and like, do a full-on play for everyone. I think the man needs a break. He doesn't stop."

Brown added: "He's always doing tennis or singing lessons. I think he needs a break, maybe it's a three-hour break."

Referencing a past incident in 2016 when Bon Jovi surprised a wedding audience with an impromptu performance of 'Livin' on a Prayer', Brown stated that the rocker would attend the wedding as a guest, not as a performer. She said: "That would be wild. I don't know if he'll be able to do just that."

Amid the wedding preparations, Brown revealed that the process has been far from stressful, thanks to the support and involvement of her fiancé.

"Jake is very, he's very involved, he's very helpful during the whole process," she revealed. "I've never felt alone in it, which is very nice."

Describing the upcoming wedding day as "a very intimate day for the both of us," Brown expressed her excitement about the special occasion. She also shared her love for spending time at home with her fiancé and family, even finding joy in simple activities like preparing meals and tending to her pony.

Earlier this year, Bon Jovi weighed in on his son's engagement to Brown, shedding light on their commitment at a young age.

The star shared his perspective during a radio interview with Andy Cohen. When asked if he had concerns about his son rushing into a commitment, the rock legend responded: "I don't know if age matters, if you find the right partner and you grow together, I think that would be my advice, really, is growing together is wise."

Bon Jovi, 61, married Dorothea Hurley in 1989, and they have three other children alongside Jake - Stephanie, 29, Jesse 28, and Romeo 19.

Here's hoping that Brown and Bongiovi have a great wedding day!
