Come on Barbie, let’s go party!
Millie Bobby Brown turned 18 on Saturday and celebrated with a throwback party theme.
The “Stranger Things” star shared a snap with her boyfriend, Jake Bongiovi, which showed the pair rocking looks inspired by Barbie and Ken.
“Hey Ken!” she wrote on Instagram.
The young couple appeared to channel medieval romance, with Brown wearing an embroidered corset over a lacy white mini dress, complete with a platinum blonde wig.
Bongiovi – who is the son of rocker Jon Bon Jovi – stayed on theme in a brown floral button down shirt.
“Ur rly pretty,” he wrote on Brown’s post, while some of her other famous pals also jumped into the comments section.
“Birthday girl,” her “Stranger Things” scene partner Noah Schnapp wrote, while Paris Hilton commented, “Loves it.”
Brown and Bongiovi, 19, were first linked last summer when they were spotted holding hands. He later shared a photo with the actress, captioning it, “bff <3."
They made their romance official in November 2021 when they posed for a snap on the London Eye ferris wheel, and celebrated Christmas together the following month.
Brown’s TV dad David Harbor recently revealed he was worried that fame could have a negative impact on his young “Stranger Things” co-star.
“Millie and I have always had sort of a special relationship because I knew her when she was so young. I knew her before any of this big fame hit, ”Harbor, 46, said of Brown on the“ That Scene with Dan Patrick ”podcast last August.
“I have a real protective feeling for her. I have a real, like, worry, ”he continued. “I worry about her and the fame and all that she has to struggle with.”
Brown was just 12 years old when the hit Netflix show premiered in 2016, and she’s already faced multiple controversies, from her unconventional friendship with rapper Drake to allegations about a past relationship with TikTok star Hunter “Echo” Ecimovic.
She’s also been open about the struggles of being scrutinized and sexualized at such a young age.
“There are moments I get frustrated from the inaccuracy, inappropriate comments, sexualization, and unnecessary insults that ultimately have resulted in pain and insecurity for me,” she wrote on Instagram in February 2020 on her 16th birthday.
“But not ever will I be defeated. ill continue doing what i love and spreading the message in order to make change. ”
