    Meet Millie Bobby Paul. Or at least that's what the breakout star of "Stranger Things," Millie Bobby Brown, will be going by if you ask fellow TV star Aaron Paul and his wife, Lauren.

    After the "Breaking Bad" alum stated his admiration for the talented young actress, going as far to say he wanted to adopt Millie into his family, the trio finally met over dinner.

    On Thursday, Lauren Paul shared a photo of the newfound friends on Instagram, writing, "It's official," adding the hashtags, "#milliebobbypaul #firstfamilyphoto #happyholidayslovethepauls."

    The 12-year-old Brit, who played Eleven on the Netflix hit, shared her own snapshot from the evening, captioned, "Had a wonderful evening with Aaron and Lauren! love my #fakeadoptedparents"

    So, how did Millie end up smack dab in the middle of one of Hollywood's most adored couples?

    Earlier this month, Paul interviewed Brown for a celeb-to-celeb chat via Elle magazine. A self-proclaimed superfan of the actress, Paul couldn't help but gush over their time together when he spoke to Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" last week.

    "I was terrified," he said of his assignment. "She's the best...But I was so terrified. She was on a family vacation in Spain and I was like, 'I've got to make this good'...She gets on the phone with her cute little accent...She's far more articulate than I and I was terrified."

    "My wife and I said that we'd want to adopt her...she said that we could," Paul said.

    The Emmy winner also promoted the interview with yet another heart-warming message that surely would've made any budding actor like Brown blush.

    "Had the absolute pleasure to interview the brilliant, articulate and absolutely adorable @milliebobby_brown the other day," he wrote on Instagram. "She of course exceeded all of my expectations. If you have seen Stranger Things then you know how amazing this young lady is. If you haven't seen the show you need to get on that as soon as possible. Millie, you're the best..."

    Luckily for the Pauls, "Stranger Things" was just renewed for a second season. More opportunities for Millie to bond with her "fake adopted parents," guaranteed.
