Francesca Hetfield - Metallica Front-Man James Hetfield's Wife & Baby-mama

Francesca Hetfield is known as the spouse of James Hetfield, a famous songwriter, guitarist, and businessman. But there is much more to Francesca's life than being a celebrated man's wife. She was born on 27 January 1970, in Rosario, Argentina and holds Argentinian nationality. Further, she is an Aquarian.

Exploring her name, Francesca is a name adopted from Italian literature meaning "from France or free man". Let's take a look at some more facts on Francesca Hetfield.

Early life & Education

Hetfield was raised in Rosario, her father was a factory employee and mother was a housewife. She completed her schooling in Rosario. She rather began working as a waitress in a bar near her home after high-school and never graduated from any college.


When she was 23, Francesca launched her career as a costumier. Eventually, she designed costumes for the influential American Brand, Metallica. Later, she quit her job and dated Metallica's front-man James Hetfield and now she is Hetfield's lawfully wedded wife.

Marriage Life With James Hetfield  

Francesca and James Hetfield met back in 1993 when she worked as Metallica's costumier. The couple dated for almost four years before marriage. They got married on 17 August 1997. Both share three children Cali Tee Hetfield, Castor Virgil Hetfield, and Marcella Francesca Hetfield from their togetherness.

In many interviews, James has stated that his wife has helped him through the darkest times. Both love each other from the core of the hearts and in these romantic 23 years long marriage, both have been entirely dedicated and have stayed far from any affair rumor. Currently, the family of five is living happily in their Colorado home.

Despite being a legendary singer, he has never released any solo project but has been a part of the band Metallica, selling over 120 million albums in the world.

Blessed With Three Children

As mentioned before, Francesca has two daughters and a son. Her first daughter is Cali Tee Hetfield, born on June 13, 1998, in San Francisco, California, US. Just like her dad, she is also a fantastic vocalist. But, quite unlike her dad, she plays more soothing songs.

In 2015, the father-daughter duo even gave a memorable performance together in San Francisco. We assure you, if Cali ever chooses to peruse singing, she would easily become as famous as her father.

Likewise, her second child and the only son Castor Virgil Hetfield was born on May 18, 2000. Just like his sister, Castor is a gifted singer, composer, songwriter, lead vocalist, and rhythm guitarist who already has a band named Reckless alongside Metallic's Kirk Hammett's son Angel Ray. 

He got interested in music after his father took him to the stage on his birthday on May 18, 2010, and sang along with Castor while the crowd chanted the song along with the father-son duo. After ending the song, James wished his son a happy 10th birthday.

The youngest child of James and Francesca's three children Marcella Francesca Hetfield was born on January 17, 2002. As both siblings are following father footsteps, we hope that she will also sing with her father and siblings.
