Courtney Love appears to have healed the rift with her estranged daughter Frances Bean Cobain after the 21 year old publicly declared her love for her mother in a gushing message via Twitter.com.

The Hole star lost custody of her only child with late husband Kurt Cobain back in 2009 and was stripped of her parental rights, with a judge appointing Wendy O’Connor, Cobain’s grandmother, and her aunt Kimberly Cobain as co-guardians.

Love revealed earlier this year that she had been keeping in touch with her daughter via email, and the pair now appears to be putting the past behind them.

Cobain gained her mother’s attention by sending a message reading, “Mum, mum, mommy, ma, mom, mum, ma, ma, mommy, mommy …’What!!’…. ‘Hi!'” before adding, “Thanks for being my mommy. I love you more than anyone in the universe… I love you, I love you. Call me when u (sic) can.
