Millie Bobby Brown seems to have confirmed her relationship with Youtube singer Jacob Sartorius. After months of speculation, the Stranger Things star uploaded a selfie of the couple on her Instagram Stories just last week, which she accompanied with a series of love heart emojis. Jacob, 15, rose to fame through his lip-syncing videos on social media, and has since found pop success on YouTube, with over 2.8 million subscribers. The youngster released his debut single Sweatshirt in 2016 and has since announced a worldwide tour.
Millie, 13, had previously got fans guessing about a possible romance with Jacob when she shared a photo showing her cuddling a big teddy, with the caption "Thanks for the bear." Eagle-eyed followers noticed that Jacob commented "course", along with a heart.
Fans took to Twitter after news of the relationship broke, with one tweeting that it was "a bigger plot twist than the Jonas Brothers making a comeback before One Direction". However, some social media users expressed concern that the actress might be growing up too quickly. Millie shot to fame at a young age when she landed the role of telepathic tween, Eleven, in Netflix hit series Stranger Things. Filming for season three of the popular sci-fi series is expected to start later this year.

Opting for the comfy cool trainers over heels, Millie explained her choice, saying: "I love to dance that's why I brought these."
