Who is Stephanie Rose Bongiovi?
Stephanie was born in Los Angeles, California USA, on 31 May 1993 – her zodiac sign is Gemini, and she holds American nationality. She’s probably only known for being the daughter of Jon Bon Jovi, a famous American singer-songwriter and actor.
Early life and education
Stephanie was raised in Los Angeles alongside her younger brothers Jesse Bongiovi, Romeo Jon Bongiovi and Jacob Hurley Bongiovi, by their father and their mother Dorothea Hurley, an American restaurant owner and karate instructor.
Her father has revealed that he knew little of raising a baby girl, but still spent the majority of his spare time with Dorothea and Stephanie; he wrote a song for Stephanie, entitled “I Got the Girl”, and when he performed it at a concert in 2000, when Stephanie was seven years old, she joined him on the stage and sang it with him.
She was interested in various activities while attending a local high school, including playing sports such as volleyball and soccer, and appearing in school plays; Stephanie also dreamed of becoming a popular singer, wanting to follow in her father’s footsteps, but it didn’t take long for her to learn that she wasn’t talented enough for it.
Upon matriculating in 2012, she enrolled at Hamilton College, from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 2016.
Stephanie hasn’t shared any details concerning her career with the public, and some of her fans believe that she’s not working, but is rather enjoying her parents’ wealth.
Stephanie nearly died from a drug overdose in November 2012, when she was a freshman at Hamilton College. Her peers found her lying unconscious in her dorm, and she was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance; it was revealed that she had overdosed on heroin, and after having spent some time unresponsive, Stephanie woke up and called for her father.
After the police searched her dorm room, they found marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and Stephanie and her college friend Ian S. Grant were arrested, but released after a couple of hours, and their charges were reduced.
Stephanie has been staying away from the media’s attention since this incident.
Love life and relationships
Stephanie prefers to keep the details of her love life to herself, and hasn’t mentioned any boys or girls whom she has perhaps been with; there are still various rumors circulating the internet today, concerning Stephanie’s current relationship status, as well as her sexual orientation.
Some of her fans believe her to be lesbian, and this to be the reason behind her not speaking of the men whom she has maybe been with; a fan has even claimed to have seen Stephanie kissing her girlfriend at a club in Los Angeles, however, Stephanie hasn’t commented on this, nor has any evidence been provided to support these claims.
There are also those who believe that she’s today in a long-term relationship with a non-celebrity American man, and that they are even engaged, but this hasn’t been confirmed either.
As of May 2022, Stephanie seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and interesting facts
Stephanie’s physically highly active, and has multiple training sessions at the gym every week, thus her slim figure; she’s also following a strict diet, and some of her fans believe her to be a vegan.

She’s a lover of animals, with dogs and horses being her favorites.
