Frances Bean Cobain, the only child of Courtney Love and late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain, has gained attention lately for her modeling work and now a video of her as a baby, amusing her rock star parents has surfaced.

In the video, which was filmed on December 13, 1993, Frances Bean is seen posing for photos while Courtney Love talks about her baby daughter's more embarrassing moments. Later in the video, Kurt Cobain and Love are shown feeding their daughter and laughing.

September 24, 2011 marks the twenty year anniversary of Nirvana's second album, "Nevermind," which has sold over 30 million copies worldwide and was certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Frances Bean Cobain recently modeled for Los Angeles Times photographer Rocky Schenck, which are a softer contrast from the stark black and white photos she appeared in for her photo shoot with Hedi Slimane.

Bean turned 19 in August. Cobain debuted her own artwork in July 2010 at Los Angeles' La Luz De Jesus Gallery, using the pseudonym Fiddle Tim. The somewhat dark drawings depicted characters like punk rock singer GG Allin and cult leader Jim Jones.

Cobain has a strained relationship with her mother Courtney Love, who lost custody in 2009 and took to Twitter to accuse Frances of 'destroying' her. The teenager may inherit millions from a fund set up shortly after her father's death, when she was just 22 months old.

Love and Kurt Cobain got married on February 24, 1992 in Hawaii after dating for a year. The late Nirvana front man was wearing pajama pants at his wedding ceremony. Frances Bean was born later that year on August 18, 1992.

Meanwhile, in 2010 Love was sued by a management firm for $1 million after selling a portion of Cobain's band Nirvana's catalog for $20 million. Cobain commit suicide in Seattle on April 8, 1994 at the age of 27. Nirvana is known for hits such as "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Come As You Are."

Despite the success of Nirvana and Love's band Hole, Love has had a long history of debt and drug abuse.
