WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) — The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has named its newest Miss Golden Globe.

Francesca Eastwood was introduced as the 2013 honoree Thursday at Cecconi's restaurant in West Hollywood. The 19-year-old is the daughter of Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood.

Miss Golden Globe is traditionally the child of a celebrity who is invited to help during the ceremony. Previous honorees include Rumer Willis, Laura Dern, Melanie Griffith and Joely Fisher.

Francesca Eastwood is an actress who also stars with her stepmother, Dina Eastwood, her half-sister, Morgan Eastwood, and the South African boy band Overtone in the E! reality series "Mrs. Eastwood and Company." She's currently enrolled at the University of Southern California.

Nominations for the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards will be announced Dec. 13. The ceremony is set for Jan. 13.
