    Wow, I can’t believe she’s already 18. Mazal tov, Frances Bean~ she seems talented and level headed despite everything she’s been through with her family. I wish her the best. (but I agree she has nicer pics out there…)

    Courtney and Kurt agreed on the name baby Frances if it was a girl and the name Eugene if it was a boy. I can’t recall where I read that. Oh yeah she was like 3 weeks early too. Frances’ due date was the night of the MTV music awards (Sept 9th 1992).
