"She's 19" started trending after Millie Bobbie Brown and Jake Bonjovi announced their engagement.

Naturally, many folks had trouble digesting the news that Jake had popped the question to Millie given her age. "She's 19" started trending on Twitter, with people claiming that she was too young to get married. Jake, who is 20, also received flack from the Twitterverse for his age, but to a lesser extent.

"She's 19. You do you sis but I was a mess at 19. Getting married would have been at the bottom of my list at that point," wrote one user in response to the news.

Not everyone was against their engagement, though. Replying to a comment about their young age, user @harryismyfr1end defended Millie and Jake's decision to take the next step in their relationship.

"It’s really not that young. If they’re in love and they know they wanna be together forever then they can. And they could be engaged for years until they decide to get married," she wrote.

Congrats to Millie and Jake on their engagement!
