Early life, family and education
Francesca was raised in Carlsbad, California by her Italian parents Gina Angelucci and Anthony Capaldi, about whom nothing’s known as she respects their privacy; because Francesca hasn’t spoken of having any siblings, most people believe her to be an only child.
She became interested in acting at a very early age, and was six years old when her parents found her an agent; Francesca made her debut TV series appearance in 2011, aged seven, with her portrayal of Orphan, in the episode “Santa’s Little Helpers” of the family comedy drama “A. N. T. Farm”, created by Dan Signer, and which starred China Anne McClain, Sierra McCormick and Jake Short. It follows a teenager who’s interested in music, and has entered his high school’s Advanced Natural Talents program; the series aired from 2011 to 2014, and won seven of the 19 awards for which it was nominated.
Francesca has since been mostly focused on her acting career. She began attending a local high school in Carlsbad in 2018, and is today interested in various other activities besides acting, including singing, dancing and creative writing.

Love life and boyfriend
Francesca prefers to keep the details of her love life to herself, and hasn’t spoken of any boys (or girls) whom she has perhaps been with.
This is probably why there are various rumors circulating the internet concerning her sexual orientation, and her current relationship status.
Some of Francesca’s fans believe that the girl might be lesbian or bisexual, claiming that she has been seen spending time with girls on a number of occasions, but hasn’t been seen with boys. A fan has even claimed to have seen her kissing her female friend at a party, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Francesca commented on this.
There are also those who believe that she’s today in a relationship with a non-celebrity American boy, but prefers to keep him away from the media’s attention; this hasn’t been confirmed either.
As of November 2021 and aged 17, Francesca seems to be single.
