Like father, like son.

Jon Bon Jovi’s son Jesse Bongiovi reportedly followed his dad’s footsteps by tying the knot in the same Las Vegas chapel his parents eloped at back in 1989.

The 29-year-old’s Sin City nuptials to longtime girlfriend Jesse Light took place on Tuesday, according to People.

While the outlet did not name the chapel in question, Bon Jovi and his wife, Dorothea Hurley, famously wed at the Graceland Wedding Chapel in August 1989.

The rocker, who was on tour with his band at the time, told People in April that his loved ones were “shocked” by the high school sweethearts’ decision.

He explained, “It’s a shame because it should have been a beautiful moment, but after we did it, people were trying to take it away.”

The Grammy winner, 62, and Hurley, 61, went on to welcome four children — Stephanie, 30, Jesse, Jake, 22, and Romeo, 20.

His eldest son proposed to Light in 2022, four years after the couple began dating.

“⚠️Time to BeReal⚠️,” Bongiovi captioned Instagram photos of himself down on one knee at the time, while Light celebrated their “happily ever after” in her own upload.

The following year, the groom’s brother Jake got engaged to “Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown.

Bon Jovi shared his advice for the pair during an April “Good Morning America” appearance, admitting that his marriage has been a daily “challenge” as he and Hurley have learned to “grow together.”

He has been extra candid about their union in recent months while promoting his Hulu documentary, “Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story.”

The musician revealed to The Independent last month that he has not been a “saint” while married to Hurley, clarifying that he was not “fool enough to f–k up the home life” despite “all the wonderful clichés of rock stardom.”

Bon Jovi said the same to Michael Strahan in a recent interview about getting “away with murder” and having “100 girls in [his] life.”

He recalled, “I’m Jon Bon Jovi. It was pretty good. But if you think I was ever going to jeopardize … anything for believing the narcissist in me was real? What a stupid thing to do.”
