According to media report, Kurt's daughter Frances Bean Cobain and Tony's son Riley Hawk got married earlier this month in Los Angeles.
The fans of legendary icons - late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and skate legend Tony Hawk - are on cloud nine. The reason? Kurt's daughter Frances Bean Cobain and Tony's son Riley Hawk have tied the knot. According to TMZ's report on October 24, 2023, the duo got married earlier this month in Los Angeles.
Fans from all over the world are beaming with joy at the news of the two iconic celebrity children becoming a couple. The outlet also broke the news that Cobain and Hawk exchanged vows on October 7, after obtaining a marriage license in September from San Diego County, California. REM frontman Michael Stipe, who also happens to be Cobain's godfather, officiated the wedding, per the outlet. According to The Independent, Frances, 31, and Riley, 30, have reportedly been dating since 2021.
However, the couple did not make their relationship public until 2022. Cobain disclosed her relationship with Hawk, who is also a professional skateboarder like his father, through an Instagram carousel post where her now-husband can be seen sitting in front of a Christmas tree and smiling at the camera while holding a small dog. In a second picture, the couple pose together for a mirror selfie.
Fans hailed their union as a "match made in heaven" and even wondered if they could bring back "the 90s with their power." Cobain has tied the knot for the second time even though it is Hawk's first marriage. She was previously hitched to musician Isiah Silva but she filed for divorce in March 2016, after less than two years of marriage. The former pair got involved in a lengthy legal spat over Kurt Cobain's acoustic guitar which he played during Nirvana's iconic "MTV Unplugged" show in November 1993. In May 2018, judges ruled in favor of Silva, stating that he could keep the guitar and he auctioned it off for more than $6 million.

Previously in 2022, before taking a year-long break from posting on Instagram, Cobain shared a snap with her husband, some friends and a bunch of random shots and captioned the post: "Honestly, 20-year-old Frances wasn’t sure that was going to happen. At the time, an intrinsic sense of deep self-loathing dictated by insecurity, destructive coping mechanisms and more trauma than my body or brain knew how to handle, informed how I saw myself and the world; through a lens of resentment for being brought into a life that seemingly attracted so much chaos and the kind of pain tied to grief that felt inescapable."
Cobain aimed to enter her 30s by staying "soft, no matter how hardening the world feels at times." "Bask in the present moment with reverence, shower the people I am lucky enough to live with more appreciation than words could ever do justice and hold space to keep learning, so the growth never stops. I’m happy to be here and I’m happy you’re here too," she concluded the post. As soon as the wedding news went viral, fans started describing it as the "rock 'n' roll union." @FloatyRedHead23 wrote: "That's a 90's blast from the past combined. Their kids are to be one hell of cool kids if they decide to have one or more" while @dr3amzbtw commented: "That's a power couple."
