Frances Bean Cobain is a married woman after reportedly tying the knot with Tony Hawk's son in a ceremony officiated by Michael Stipe.

The 31-year-old artist/model - daughter of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love - is believed to have wed Riley Hawk - the son of skateboarding legend Tony - in Los Angeles earlier this month after previously obtaining a marriage licence in September.

TMZ.com reports the couple walked down the aisle on October 7 and the nuptials were presided over by R.E.M frontman Michael, who is Frances' godfather.

Frances is believed to have been in a relationship with 30-year-old skateboarder Riley since early 2021. She was previously married to The Eeries musician Isaiah Silva from 2014 until their divorce in 2017. It's Riley's first marriage.

Frances - who lost her dad Kurt to suicide when she was just a baby and her mum Courtney spent years struggling with drug and alcohol abuse - turned 30 last year and previously admitted she wasn't sure if she was going to make it to the milestone.

In a post on Instagram at the time, she wrote: "30!!! I made it! 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."

She added: "There’s a quote by @jaiyajohn I hold closely, which is ‘the softer she became with herself, the softer she became with the world.’ It’s a sentiment I try to remember daily. Entering this new decade I hope to stay soft no matter how hardening the world can feel at times, bask in the present moment with reverence, shower the people I am lucky enough to love with more appreciation than words could ever do justice hold space to keep learning, so the growth never stops. I’m happy to be here and I’m happy you’re here too."
