Billie Lourd Instagram post had some people reaching for tissues. As the news of Carrie Fisher and her mom Debbie Reynolds dying one day apart continues to baffle and sadden their fans, many have also questioned what Billie Lourd could be feeling, losing both her mom and grandmother almost at the same time.

Finally, Billie Lourd let her fans know what she is feeling through a sweet photo and message on her Instagram. The grieving young star shared that while she misses Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds a lot, her fans’ love and support, plus their continuous prayers have been sustaining her in this trying period.
“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,” the 24-year-old actress wrote as seen on Billie Lourd Instagram page. “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,” she added.
The message accompanied a photo of her as a young child goofing around with mom and grandmother. Nourd can be seen sticking her tongue out at the camera while Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds smiled prettily at the camera.
Billie Lourd Convince Grandma Debbie Reynolds She Wanted To Be An Actress
It can be remembered that just a few weeks ago before the tragedy, Lourd even appeared on the Late Night With Seth Meyers to reveal the dynamics of her relationship with her mom and grandma.
As three generations of great actresses, people cannot help but be naturally drawn to them and wonder how they are to each other. On that interview, Lourd was generous with sharing some details of her family fondly. She specifically showed how much she adored her grandma.
“First of all, she gets really upset when I get called ‘Carrie Fisher’s daughter.’ She wants people to call me ‘Debbie Reynolds’ granddaughter.’ It’s very offensive to her,” Lourd joked to the host. “She does not like to be cut out — not at all. She started it. It’s her fault [that I’m an actress.]”
She added that her grandma tried to dissuade her from acting but failed. Before landing the role of Chanel #3 of “Scream Queens,” Lourd made her acting debut as Lieutenant Connix on “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” opposite her mother, who took on the iconic Princess Leia role.
Fisher died at 60 after going into a cardiac arrest on Dec. 27 and Reynolds died reportedly of stroke the following day. She was 84.
