Drew Barrymore is godmother to Kurt Cobain’s daughter

Drew Barrymore has a famous niece herself, as she is the godmother to Kurt Cobain’s only daughter Frances Bean.

Barrymore was reportedly close to Frances Bean’s mother Courtney Love around the time of her pregnancy.

In a 2007 interview with Jane magazine, Barrymore spoke of her goddaughter: “Courtney and I have not seen each other in a while, so I haven’t had the pleasure of being in Frances’s life for a few years. That’s a great loss for me, and I hope to reconnect with her.”

The two did reconnect, as it was reported Drew Barrymore was helping Frances Bean Cobain plan her wedding.
