Isaiah Silva is a brave man. Not because he is, by several accounts, about to marry rock royalty and plunge into marriage with his girlfriend of a year, Frances Bean Cobain.
No. It's because he might soon have Courtney Love as a mother-in-law. And you fellas out there thought you had it rough.
While speculation about the 19-year-old rock scion's engagement has been swirling all week, this morning an unnamed inside source finally confirmed to People that the betrothal speculation between Cobain and Silva, the frontman for the L.A.-based band The Rambles (bet their profile is going to rise), was in fact true.
Credit for first sussing out the engagement goes to the sleuthers at O.C. Weekly, who first fueled the gossip fires this week, when they noticed that both Silva and Kurt Cobain's only offspring had quietly changed their relationship statuses on Facebook to "engaged" a few weeks ago. Both keep pages under fake names (Frances Rachel Leigh Cook for the lady, Isaiah David Berkowitz-Cusack for the gentleman) and while the statuses have since reverted back, the news apparently still holds true.
"Getting to spend the rest of my life loving my best friend makes me the luckiest woman in the world," Cobain wrote in a comment on her page dated Sept. 13, right after Silva called himself "a lucky man."
Things got even more obvious this month, when the rocker — whom, it has indeed been pointed out, bears something of a striking resemblance to Kurt — commented underneath a friend's photo, "Haha I do what I can. And by do what I can I mean not shower and steal clothes from my fiance and the good will."
There's no word on whether a wedding date has been set, but it certainly hasn't been announced. And congrats, you two. We can't wait to hear what the mother of the bride has to say about this.
