Rumors that the pair were dating first began on Reddit, where one user posted a photo of Frances and Riley out at dinner together with Tony and Catherine.

As word began to trickle out, people started to share their comments, which for the most part were supportive.

‘If they had a child, their grandparents would be two of the largest icons from the nineties. Insane,’ wrote one person. 

‘OK this is legitimately good news for humanity,’ another commenter shared.

And one person seem to sum up the sentiments by posting: ‘Daughter of the most nineties dude ever is dating the son of the second most nineties dude ever.’      

Frances was previously married to musician Isaiah Silva in 2014, but she eventually filed for divorce from the singer in March 2016, which was made official the following year.

Her father, Kurt Cobain, died by a self-inflicted gunshot in April 1994, when Frances was just a one-and-a-half-years-old.
