Frances Bean Cobain – According to her Facebook page, Frances Bean Cobain may be engaged. She alluded to an impending wedding in several Facebook posts. The 19-year-old daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love recently changed her status on the site to “engaged,” suggesting that she is planning to marry her boyfriend, Isaiah Silva of the rock band the Rambles.
Some believe it may be just a prank though. For one thing, both Cobain and Silva use silly aliases on the site, Frances Rachel Leigh Cook and David Berkowitz-Cusack, respectively. However, the two recently reverted their status from “engaged.”
Frances Bean Cobain was named after Frances McKee, the guitarist for the Scottish indie pop duo The Vaselines. The middle name ‘Bean’ was chosen because Kurt thought she looked like a kidney bean on the ultrasound.
Her godfather is former R.E.M. front man Michael Stipe, and Drew Barrymore is her godmother.
Cobain, who is estranged from her mother, has become something of a muse for fashion designers recently. Francis Bean has also tested the waters for a career in music, singing on a track called “My Space” by Evelyn Evelyn, a side project of Dresden Dolls singer Amanda Palmer.
In August 2006, Frances Bean was photographed for Elle magazine in her father’s famous brown cardigan and pajama pants as part of an article featuring children of rock stars in their parent’s clothing. She explained, “I wore his pajamas because he got married in them to my mom in 1992 in Hawaii so I thought they would be cute if I wore them today. He was too lazy to put on a tux so he got married in pajamas!”
