Whitney Houston and daughter Bobbi Kristina

Bobbi Kristina Brown has already had a roller coaster of a year, just three months into 2012. With her mom, singer Whitney Houston, passing away on February 11, her life was turned upside down. Now it turns out, the 19-year-old is reportedly engaged, and to a 22-year-old man that was raised by her mother.

While the fact that their somewhat incestuous relationship raises a lot of eyebrows, the pair are not blood related, and we think the bigger concern is really her age and vulnerability during this difficult time.

People magazine reported that their engagement was confirmed, "but the family is trying to coax her away from it."

The young lovers have been spotted holding hands and kissing in public, while Brown was also displaying her massive diamond ring.

Of course they aren't the only young and in love Hollywood couple to have gotten engaged at such an early age. Frequently the daughters of troubled celebs have gone on to move quickly in their relationships.

Lisa Marie Presley, whose famous father is Elvis, has been married four times, with her first wedding taking place when she just 20. Now her daughter, 22-year-old Riley Keough has gotten engaged to her boyfriend of just six months, British actor Alex Pettyfer. While she's a little older than Houston's only daughter, one would think she should use a little caution considering her family's history.

Last fall, Frances Bean Cobain , the 19-year-old daughter of the late Kurt Cobain and singer Courtney Love, announced her engagement to boyfriend of a little over a year, Isaiah Silva of the L.A. band The Rambles. After suffering through a rather difficult childhood, the young aspiring vocalist should perhaps think twice before making a life-long commitment.

Several stars who married young have seen their relationships quickly end in divorce. Rocker Avril Lavigne was just 21 years old when she married Canadian musician Deryck Whibley. The pair split after just three years.

Country singer LeAnn Rimes , was 19 when she married 21-year-old Dean Sheremet. She was obviously too young to know what she really wanted in a man. After seven years of marriage she met Eddie Cibrian and allegedly began cheating on Sheremet. The "Blue" singer divorced her husband and married Cibrian.
