'Sending my love and strength to everyone out there that’s missing a loved one they’ve lost. Especially those of you who have lost someone during this crazy year'
Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Catherine Lourd has shared a picture with her late mother on her Instagram account. Through her new social media post, the 28-year-old new mother hoped to encourage fans and followers amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In the photo, Lourd was seen walking on a street with Fisher. The picture’s caption read, “Sending my love and strength to everyone out there that’s missing a loved one they’ve lost. Especially those of you who have lost someone during this crazy year. You’re not alone.”
A lot of people commented on the lovely picture of the mother-daughter duo. One user said, “Hi Billie, I know this day must be very special to you, I am sending all my love. I wanted to tell you, that Leia brought so much to my childhood. At 5yo, as a boy, I always preferred Leia more than the others, I’ve always looked up to her, and always found her incredibly strong and brave."
The fan added, "Carrie brought so much to me, she is definitely my childhood queen, and I will forever be grateful for her and for what she did. She will forever be in our hearts, and we will never forget her. Sending you much love and affection, we love you and Carrie.”
Another wrote, “Lost my grandma on Christmas day, she's no longer in pain and resting peacefully. May 2021 be better to all of us.” A user noted, “I just put bright lights on. missing your mother and grandma more than words can say today and always. my thoughts are with you forever.”
This special post came months after Lourd posted a picture of her newborn son’s feet whom she shares with her fiancé Austen Rydell in September. “Introducing: Kingston Fisher Lourd Rydell,” she captioned the image. The baby’s name also includes his late grandmother’s surname, who died on December 27, 2016.
That post was also flooded with lots of congratulatory and positive messages. “So Beautiful, I just want to tickle those juicy toes! Congrats on your Lovely Little Man!” one comment read. Another stated, “I know your mom is just loving this kid from the other side with everything in her. So happy for you guys.”
The ‘American Horror Story’ star started dating Rydell in early 2016, but the same year, they broke up before again patching up. The couple also went to Norway on the first death anniversary of the 'Star Wars' icon.
Sharing the stunning photo of the Northern Lights, Lourd wrote, “My momby had an otherworldly obsession with the northern lights, but I never got to see them with her. We journeyed to northern Norway to see if we might “see the heavens lift up her dark skirts and flash her dazzling privates across [our] unworthy irises”. And she did. I love you times infinity.”
Her 1.4 million followers could not control their emotions themselves after seeing the bright green light one said, “This makes me happy.” “Inspirational... hugging my daughter who’s with your momby,” the second comment read. “Billie you should really visit bet you’d love the night lights of 100 years of independence in here,” a user wrote.
