Romeo Jon Bongiovi Is The Last Child Of Jon Bon Jovi
Romeo Jon Bon Jovi was born into the family of Jon Bon Jovi and Dorothea Hurley. He’s the lastborn child of the legendary singer with his wife, Dorothea. His birth followed that of his older siblings – Stephanie Rose, born May 31, 1991; Jesse, born February 19, 1995; and Jacob, born May 7, 2002. Romeo was born on the 29th of March 2004.
His Parents Were High School Lovers And Got Married Under Controversial Circumstances
His mother and father were high school sweethearts at St. Joseph High School in Metuchen, New Jersey. Prior to the time they met, Jon Bon Bongiovi had just moved to the town with his family and was enrolled in the school where Dorothea was. Their relationship grew stronger as he continuously copied from her in their school tests and over time, they started dating.
They broke up at some point and Jon Bon Bongiovi was rumored to be in a relationship with actress Diane Lane. Over time, the lovebirds still patched up things and remained together. They would later get married in one of the most unusual manners yet. In 1989, while on a tour in Los Angeles, following the success of his just-released album, New Jersey, he suggested to his then-girlfriend, Dorothea Hurley, that they eloped to Las Vegas, Nevada, and got married.
This move, although heavily criticized by everyone around them – family, manager, and fans – has become the best decision he’s ever made, according to the rock star. They exchanged wedding vows at the Graceland Wedding Chapel on 29th April 1989 and the union between Romeo’s parents has lasted more than three decades.

Stephanie Rose Bongiovi
She is the first of the four children of Dorothea Hurley and Jon Bon Bongiovi – and the only girl child of the couple. Stephanie is currently a camera operator on TV. According to her IMDb post, Stephanie has worked on the truTV and Comedy Central series, Impractical Jokers.
Stephanie struggled with drug addiction at some point in her life. While she was in Hamilton College, she was hospitalized as a result of an overdose on heroin. After she recuperated, she was arrested and charged for possession but was ultimately released. She has since overcome the drug addiction and has done really well for herself.
Jesse Bongiovi is the first son and second child of Romeo’s parents. After his graduation from the University of Notre Dame, where she studied political science and government, he co-founded a wine brand with his dad and they called it Hampton Water Wine. The idea behind starting a wine brand came to Jesse and his dad while they were having a conversation about Rose wine. Jesse also has an interest in football and has partnered with Umami Burger, an American restaurant chain, to start ‘Hampton Burger’.
Jacob Hurley Bongiovi
Jacob Bongiovi is also known as Jakes, and just like Jesse, he has a striking resemblance to his father. Jake is a student at Syracuse University in New York, and while at school, he made headlines after leading and organizing a national student walkout to protest against the government’s response to mass school shootings following the shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Romeo Bongiovi Has Interest In Pursuing A Career In Modeling
Romeo Jon Bongiovi is believed to have given modeling a shot, as he has got all it takes – the height, nice hair, grey eyes, and of course the general cute modeling attitude, style, and persona. His father has admitted that Romeo and Jacob do not have an interest in his career. Jon Bon Bongiovi once invited his last two children to attend his show, and they turned him down. For their father, his children being uninterested in his career keeps him humble.
However, Romeo is still a young man and only time can tell the career path he will follow, and to his father’s surprise, he may choose entertainment, considering he already has an interest in modeling.
His Parents Look Forward To When He Would Graduate
The youngest of the Bongiovi kids attends a high school in Manhattan. This was clearly stated by his parents in their interview with PEOPLE about life in quarantine. Jon Bon Jovi and his wife got so excited talking about how they anticipated their youngest child to graduate, saying that they are “definitely looking forward” to that empty nest life after raising four children.
They look forward to not being stuck to a schedule and being able to travel. Notwithstanding, they have also admitted that they love their children and even after they have all left the house, they would still like to see them come around.
Is Romeo Dating?
Considering how handsome and well-built Romeo is, you would expect him to be the farmer in someone’s love garden. Well, unlike Jacob, his older brother who has been spotted with the actress, Millie Bobby Brown, who seemingly confirmed her romance with Jake Bongiovi while they were traveling through Europe together, Romeo is yet to introduce any woman to the world as the love of his life.
However, it is possible that he has a girlfriend or has been in a relationship before, but just did not make it public.
