Frances Bean Cobain has got engaged. The 19-year-old beauty - the daughter of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Hole singer Courtney Love - said "yes" after her Rambles rocker boyfriend Isaiah Silva popped the question and she has confirmed the happy news on her Facebook page. Frances had changed her status on the social networking website to "engaged" - but has since removed this - and posted: "Getting to spend the rest of my life loving my best friend makes me the luckiest woman in the world." Frances - who was just 20 months old when her father committed suicide in April 1994 - and Isaiah have been dating for over a year and since getting engaged have now moved into together in a house in Los Angeles. A source told In Touch Weekly magazine: "Yes, she's engaged and they moved in together in a big house near Runyon Canyon." Frances moved out of her mother Courtney's home in 2009 to be cared for by Kurt's family, and the singer recently accepted responsibility for their estrangement. Courtney, 47, said: "It was my fault. I never read to her. Why didn't I ever take her to a Broadway show? She f--king loved those Broadway musicals!" "All I can feel is how much I love her. I'd give anything to hear the sound of her heels walking down the hall past my bedroom." "I swore I'd never be like my mother but I'm just the same. She threw it all away and I threw it all away." Thanks for the report to ContactMusic.

    Good luck to them! It's all I have to say, because my mind automatically forgot how to read when I saw saw "Coutney Love said".

    Usually in these situations i am the first to say good on them, go for it, dont look back etc. But i feel a little uneasy about this one. Frances never had the chance to grow up normal from the start. Her surviving parent was a complete lunatic. What 19 year old has any idea about life and what they want? Anybody over the age of 19 knows that 19 year olds are idiots. Sounds to me as if Isaiah Silva is just trying to snag Kurt's daugher because she is the best offer he will ever get. He is a grunge***** and an obvious Cobain fan. And even resembles Kurt. So im not sure what complexes are going on here but I am a little uneasy. Having said that, i hope it does work out. It is always nice when stories have a happy ending. Congratulations Francis Bean. RIP Kurt.

    Anybody that IS the age of 19 knows that 19 year olds are idiots, too. Trust me, I'm 19 I've said a lifetime of stupid shit yesterday.

    Well it's good that Frances Bean has love in her life, and this time it has nothing to do with bad spelling and being a self obsessed moron. Congrats Bean!

    can't resist the rockstar, eh Bean? Fulfilling some kind of childhood need for the male rockstar figure that was missing.

    I don't blame her for getting married early.. I mean for gods sakes her dad killed himself. She needs a male figure in her life.

    Engaged at 19? I'm 20 and I still live at home. She's insane. It won't last though.

    Why exactly does she need a male figure in her life? Between Billy Corgan and the rest of the shmucks her mom has brought home over the years, I'm sure she's had enough of male "rolemodels." Also, hard to call her boyfriend a rockstar when his band doesn't even have their own Wiki page.

    I don't think Billy Corgan,Trent Reznor, or the millions of schmucks are suitable "male rolemodels". More power to her.
