Millie Bobby Brown's parents are Kelly and Robert Brown of England. The family moved from England to Spain (where Robert's parents owned a restaurant and Millie was born), then back to England, and then to Orlando, Fla.

The Brown family spoke to Daily Mail about their financial burdens in 2016, where Robert explained that despite being a real estate agent, at one point, the family was so destitute that they moved in with an aunt.

It was revealed that the family moved to Orlando so Robert could open a tooth-whitening business, at which point, Millie enrolled at a weekend stage school for fun and decided to pursue acting full-time after a talent agent offered her representation at a showcase. The family then moved a fourth time to Hollywood, where Millie quickly rose to fame as Eleven in Netflix's Stranger Things.

Millie Bobby Brown is the third youngest of four siblings.

Millie is the middle child of four. She has an older sister, Paige, an older brother, Charlie, and a younger sister named Ava. In the same Daily Mail article from 2016, Millie tearfully explained that when the family moved to Orlando, Fla., Paige ultimately moved back to the U.K. Paige reportedly works for Nationwide building society.

"My older sister left. She didn’t want to do it [America] any more,’ Millie notes. ‘It was tears, tears, tears. We went through tough times."

Thankfully, it seems all is well with the siblings now, as they pop up infrequently on Millie's social media pages. She also takes her parents and her sister Ava to awards shows on occasion.

Fans might soon see more of the Brown family as Millie has a wedding to plan!
