Jon Bon Jovi recently shared a photograph of a note that Dorothea Hurley, his high school sweetheart and wife of 35 years, wrote in his senior yearbook 44 years ago.

The Livin' on a Prayer singer joined Kelly Clarkson on The Kelly Clarkson Show for a special segment titled "Behind The Photo" where guests describe inside information about what was going on behind the scenes of a specific photo.

He got candid about dangerous music video snaps, camping in the desert for photoshoots, and a cute note written by his wife over four decades ago.

The note in question reads, "John, write a sequel to 'Bobby's Girl' but name it 'She's Johnny's Now,' love Dot."

The You Give Love A Bad Name star revealed that he wrote a song titled Bobby's Girl in high school when Dorothea was dating his best friend.

"It was a song I had written called Bobby's Girl. One of the first original songs I'd written. And she was dating my buddy Bobby and he went off to join the service as did my other two best friends and they all joined the Navy and it was my senior year of high school. And you know...I just fell in love with the girl sitting next to me in history class."

And the rest was (literally) history!
