Keeping it in the industry! As Kurt Cobain’s daughter marries skateboarding legend Tony Hawk’s son… a look at other celebrity couples and their very famous in-laws
It might smell like teen spirit, but recent news suggests it was actually a low-key wedding ceremony as Kurt Cobain’s daughter exchanged vows on October 7.
Those of a certain age, particularly anyone old enough to remember Nirvana’s emergence from the Seattle grunge scene, might be justified in feeling old upon hearing Frances Bean – Cobain’s only child with former Hole rocker Courtney Love – has been married for weeks.
And it doesn’t stop there, for this is the 31-year old’s second stab at marital bliss after a short-lived two-year marriage to musician Isaiah Silva ended with an an acrimonious legal battle over the ownership of her late father’s treasured guitars in 2016.
One can only hope it’s second time lucky for Frances, and after marrying into the family of iconic skateboarding pioneer Tony Hawk the odds certainly work in her favour.
Indeed, Riley Hawk, 30 – a professional street skater in his own right – can no doubt relate to the unique difficulties that come with growing up in the shadow of famous parents.
The marriage puts clean-living, all American Hawk at the top of reformed wild child Love’s Christmas card list and could be a match made in celebrity heaven – but who else has merged two famous families by saying I Do?
MailOnline has all the answers.
I do: It may well smell like teen spirit, but recent news suggests it was actually a low-key wedding ceremony as Kurt Cobain’s daughter exchanged vows on October 7
Family: Frances’ mother is Hole rocker Courtney Love. Her father, Nirvana star Kurt, died in April 1994, from a self-inflicted shotgun wound to the head

1. BROOKLYN BECKHAM AND NICOLA PELTZ
It already feels like they’ve been together for a lifetime, and given the amount of tattoos Brooklyn Beckham has since dedicated to his wife one hopes they are.
But it’s been a mere four years since David and Victoria Beckham’s eldest child confirmed his relationship with American actress Nicola Peltz in a 2019 Instagram post.
The daughter of billionaire businessman Nelson Peltz and model Claudia Heffner, Nicola was already known to film fans through her starring role in Transformers: The Age of Extinction and a recurring part in Bates Motel – a TV spin-off inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho.
The couple confirmed their engagement in 2020, but wedding plans were inevitably scuppered by the coronavirus pandemic and they would be forced to wait for two years before finally exchanging vows in April 2022.
But it was worth the wait, with their lavish wedding ceremony conducted at the sprawling Peltz family estate in Palm Beach, Florida and costing a reported $4million.

Blushing bride Nicola called her custom-made Valentino wedding gown her ‘dream dress’ as the couple posed for a lucrative photo spread with British Vogue.
Brooklyn wore a Dior suit, and as a gift to her new husband, Peltz sewed a bespoke label into his outfit. He added a diamond lapel chain from Anita Ko – a gift from his new in-laws.
After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails adorned with white cherry blossoms as a jazz quartet played, Vogue reported.
A 12-piece live band then took over the entertainment for a black-tie dinner served in a marquee by the seafront, filled with spectacular floral arrangements from HMR Designs.
The newlyweds then had their first dance to Elvis’s classic Only Fools Rush In, performed by South African artist Lloyiso.
Marc Anthony eventually took over the DJ decks, spinning tunes to the likes of actors Rashida Jones and Kiernan Shipka, and the filmmakers Michael Bay and M Night Shyamalan, as well as Natalia Bryant, daughter of the Kobe Bryant.
Guests were also invited by the couple to make a donation to the people of Ukraine through the agency Care.

2. LILY COLLINS AND CHARLIE MCDOWELL
A Clockwork Orange met Genesis, at least in a manner of speaking, when the daughter of pop legend Phil Collins married the son of actor Malcolm McDowell.
Indeed, Lily Collins and Charlie McDowell exchanged vows in a private ceremony at Dunton Hot Springs in Colorado on September 4 2021 – 12-months after announcing their engagement.
Emily In Paris star Lily – whose mother is American actress and architect Jill Tavelman – later shared the news on social media by posting a handful of images from their special day.
Prior to embarking on a relationship with the actress, Charlie – whose father played violent gang leader Alex DeLarge in Stanley Kubrick’s 1971 blockbuster – dated several high-profile actresses, among them Emilia Clarke, Hilary Duff, and Rooney Mara.
Lily has also had her fair share of headline-grabbing relationships, including a brief romance with her Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile co-star Zac Efron in 2012 and a subsequent five-year relationship with British actor Jamie Campbell Bower.

3. MARK RONSON AND GRACE GUMMER
Wedding planners didn’t need to worry about booking a DJ for the reception after Grace Gummer married legendary music producer Mark Ronson in 2021.
The daughter of Hollywood icon Meryl Streep and sculptor Don Gummer exchanged vows with multi-talented Mark in a low-key ceremony on September 4 – the groom’s 45th birthday.
Following the service, Mark – the son of former music publisher Laurence Ronson and writer Ann Dexter-Jones – shared a black and white shot from the wedding ceremony along with a message that referenced his milestone birthday.
He wrote: ‘To my truest love…out of nowhere, you made 45 hands down the greatest year of my life.
‘And I’m sure it took me 45 years to become the man worthy of your love. I hope I spend every one of these birthdays by your side till my last day. And beyond. Forever and ever yours(and yes, we got married).’

Precautions: Sources close to the couple said they cut down the once-large guest list to just friends and family out of safety concerns following the coronavirus pandemic
In the accompanying photo, Grace – an actress whose screen credits include anthology series American Horror Story and Let The Right One In – beams while dressed in a gauzy white bridal gown with a plunging neckline.
She is pictured holding hands with her new husband, who looks sharp in a pinstripe suit while wearing a traditional yarmulke in respect of his Jewish upbringing.
Sources close to the couple said they trimmed the guest list to close friends and family members out of safety concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19.
Grace is part of a formidable acting dynasty that includes her older sister Mamie Gummer, best known for her roles in Emily Owens, M.D., The Good Wife and The Good Fight.
Her younger sister Louisa Jacobson is also an actress, though she’s more focused on the stage, while her older brother Henry Wolfe is a musician and actor.
