The internet is still reeling in response to the deaths of beloved “Star Wars” actress and feminist icon Carrie Fisher, and her mother, Hollywood legend Debbie Reynolds, who tragically passed away only a day after Fisher did last week. Many fans, including celebrities, posted messages remembering both actresses, recalling their individual talents and special mother-daughter bond. But one voice has been (very) understandably missing: “Scream Queens” star Billie Lourd’s, who lost her mother and then her grandmother within a couple of days.
Lourd broke her silence on Instagram Monday with a touching throwback post of her as a child with her late mother and grandmother. Her caption reads: “Receiving all of your prayers and kind words over the past week has given me strength during a time I thought strength could not exist. There are no words to express how much I will miss my Abadaba and my one and only Momby. Your love and support means the world to me.”
In a “Late Night With Seth Meyers” appearance a few weeks ago, Billie Lourd revealed that both Fisher and Reynolds tried to dissuade her from pursuing acting, but that they have been supportive and were proud of her success. Lourd even shared an adorable anecdote about her grandmother, saying, “She gets really upset when I get called ‘Carrie Fisher’s daughter.’ She wants people to call me ‘Debbie Reynolds’ granddaughter.'”
This Saturday, we’ll get a peak into Reynolds and Fisher’s relationship, which is memorialized in an upcoming HBO documentary, “Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.”
In the meantime, we’re sending thoughts and major good vibes Lourd’s way.
