She's one of the most recognizable young faces in the entertainment industry these days, and now, Millie Bobby Brown is off the market. That's right-- the Stranger Things star, 13, has nabbed herself a boyfriend in singer-songwriter Jacob Sartorius, 15.
Brown's Instagram currently boasts pictures of A-listers like Drake, Hailee Steinfeld, and Jimmy Fallon. But you'll be hard-pressed to find a photo of the couple together. It seems the two aren't ready to go full-force with their relationship on social media. For now, they're sticking with subtle hints.
Fans have been speculating for months that Sartorius could be Brown's boyfriend. Those paying particularly close attention have noted that Brown liked one of Sartorius' tweets from the other day that read, "just another day w you on my mind."
In early January, the Stranger Things star uploaded a photo to Instagram of her cuddling a large stuffed animal bear. The caption read, "Thanks for the bear ❤️". Sartorius commented on the photo, “[Of] course,”.
According to US Weekly, the teens spent New Year's Eve together with Millie's family at Walt Disney World in Florida. So what do we know about the man who has stolen Millie's heart? What's he do, and where's he from?
He's a Singer and Internet Personality
Jacob Sartorius is a singer who originally hails from Oklahoma. About a year ago, he released his debut extended play The Last Text, which included eight songs. The EP charted in album charts in the US, Canada, Scotland, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland, and Australia.
Sartorius first gained fame at age 11 after uploading a Vine about anti-bullying. He subsequently started to post regularly to the online app, and when he joined Musical.ly, his fame really took off. A 2016 article in Seventeen magazine discusses what a hit Jacob was on Vine, with 8 million followers and an additional 7 million followers on Instagram. Right now, he has 8.4 million followers on Instagram.
According to his website, Sartorius is signed with RCA Records. He is a "musician, actor, and social media force" who "seamlessly evolved from online stardom to mainstream ubiquity by following a path of his own." Furthermore, the site says that Jacob has been featured on the cover of Billboard Magazine, been a guest on HBO's Vice News Now, as well as NPR's Here and Now.
