Millie Bobby Brown might just have a new love on her hands!

On Thursday, the 17-year-old actress took to the streets of New York City where she was spotted walking hand in hand with Jake Bongiovi.

Making their public debut, the pair held hands while walking side-by-side together as Bongiovi, 19 - who is the son of Jon Bon Jovi - held the Stranger Things star's dog Winnie in a large denim tote.

For the outing, Brown wore a long pink skirt and white top, which she accessorized with a pair of floral flats. Bongiovi, meanwhile, sported a summery button-up shirt that he paired with multi-colored tan, black, and blue shorts.
