Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has confirmed the rumours she’s in a relationship with a huge star you’re likely to have never heard of.
Rumours began flying around not so long ago about the 13-year-old’s relationship to singer Jacob Sartorius after they both began liking each other’s social media photos.
If the name Jacob Sartorius sounds unfamiliar to you then fear not, it’s not that he isn’t famous, it’s just that he caters to a slightly younger audience.
He has over 2.8 million subscribers on YouTube alone and is probably creating the type of music Justin Bieber would have put out a few years ago.
Anyway, the rumours began flying around at the start of January after a series of tweets were sent out by Sartorius, which the Stranger Things star liked:
just another day w you on my mind
— Jacob Sartorius (@jacobsartorius) January 9, 2018
i think about the future a lot better w you in it

Now, Brown has confirmed the romance in her Instagram story with a picture of the two of them accompanied by love hearts.
Brown isn’t being coy about her feelings either after she posted two photos of her hugging a bear, which was apparently a gift from Sartorius.
She also added the caption:
Thanks for the bear
To which Sartorius replied (in the comments section):

While this is a prime example of puppy love, some people have disapproved of their relationship (naturally), particularly as Millie is only 13-years-old and her boyfriend is 15.
People On Twitter were quick to give their opinion:

Most people aren’t happy with the recent developments in Millie’s personal life and it seems most of this concern is due to the actress’ age, but one of the main worries is the possibility she could be maturing just a little bit too quickly before our eyes.
While the temptation is there to place Millie Bobby Brown on a pedestal, it’s worth pointing out she’s still a child who needs space to mature and grow.
Actor David Harbour, who plays Chief Hopper in Stranger Things, has praised her for being so mature at such a tender age but also warned, reports Variety:
I’m leery of blowing too much smoke up her already well-filled smoke a*s… Because I do feel that when I’m in the nursing home, I would like to be able to watch movies with her in her 30s and have her become Meryl Streep.
She has the potential for that to happen.
In other Stranger Things romance news, David Harbour has agreed to officiate the wedding of a fan who tweeted him.
Sending a modern day message in a bottle out into the Ethernet, Erika tweeted:
What would it take to get @DavidKHarbour to be the Officiant at my wedding in September?!
Well, as Erika – a woman with fewer than 500 followers – discovered, it only took 93,162 retweets and 32,805 little Twitter love hearts, at time of writing, to guarantee her Happily Ever After.
125k retweets. Provided date works with s3 shooting schedule, I will get ordained and perform ceremony. I get to read an esteemed love letter of my choosing, and after the cake is officially cut, I get the very first piece. #allthecakes https://t.co/rSku8qD7uT

He responded, nailing his colours to the mast:
125k retweets. Provided date works with s3 shooting schedule, I will get ordained and perform ceremony.
I get to read an esteemed love letter of my choosing, and after the cake is officially cut, I get the very first piece.
While her RTs haven’t reached the required 125,000 yet, Hopper’s tweet is sitting pretty at 138,752, at time of writing.
But still, this happened less than a day after Ericka sent her tweet:
Dammit. Not even 24hours. You’re kidding me. @ErickaElizabth DM me please to get the ball rolling. I’m making it seriously hard next time, internet, this is not over between us... https://t.co/Ht0kDCl5hz

Either Harbour has lessened his demands or he’s just ‘halfway happy’ with the almighty Twitter efforts of Stranger Things watchers.
Social media is a strange and wonderful world.
