Want to feel old? Frances Bean Cobain is now 30 years old

Longtime Nirvana fans have watched Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Kurt and Courtney, grow up. We’ve been talking about her literally since she was a zygote. Now here’s a shock: Frances is 30 years old, three years older than her dad when he died.

Born August 18, 1992, eleven months after Nevermind was released, Frances is one of the most famous rock star offspring of all time. And according to her, she’s surprised she made it this far.

And here’s a story I missed: In 2017, Frances was onboard an Air France flight when one of the wings burst into flames.
