Making the return of the show even sweeter was that Netflix picked it up for exclusive distribution on their streaming service. Original series creator Joel Hodgson is involved in the revival as well, but most of the cast will consist of newcomers.

She also posted a loving message from her grandmother, who wrote that Kurt would have been proud of her and bragging, "Hey, that's MY daughter".

Kurt was born on February 20 1967 and founded Nirvana in 1987 in Washington, although the band had a string of different drummers until Dave Grohl joined in 1990 to complete the final line up. "Forever your Daughter, Frances Bean".

"Kurt has gotten to icon status because he will never age", she told Rolling Stone.

Earlier she had uploaded a picture of a handwritten note to her father, in which she thanked him for giving her "the gift of life". And that would have been an incredible experience'.
