Billie Lourd Honors Mom Carrie Fisher On Late Star’s 61st Birthday With Mother-Daughter Twinning Photo

Carrie Fisher‘s only child, Billie Lourd, took to Instagram on Saturday to honor her mother on what would have been her 61st birthday, her first birthday since her death last year.

The 25-year-old Scream Queens actress posted a childhood photo showing her and the late Star Wars star wearing a matching white printed nightgowns.

“Happy birthday Momby,” Billie wrote in emojis, using her nickname for her mom.

The starlet also made sure to give her mother a lasting tribute by getting some intergalactic ink on her body. Billie got a star scene on her ankle and posted the pic onto her Instagram today as well.

The Star Wars actress died at age 60 in December 2016. Her mother and Singin’ in the Rain star Debbie Reynolds passed away a day later at age 84 after a stroke.

Carrie’s brother Todd Fisher had talked to E! News about how the family plans to mark Carrie’s 61st birthday.

“You can be sure that Billie and I will have a moment in reflection on Carrie’s day,” he said.

“I remember all the great things that she said and the example that she set for so many other women,” he added. “I see people almost every day that come up to me and hug me and tell me what an amazing inspiration that she was, as a survivor and a woman who stood up for what she believes in. It’s amazing how many people recognized her for that.”

On Friday, Billie spent time with her family. She appeared to be in great spirits as she attended the 2017 GLSEN Respect Awards to honor her stepfather Bruce Bozzi, who had wed her father and Carrie’s ex, Bryan Lourd, in 2016. Billie and her 10-year-old sister Ava Bozzi also attended.

Bruce, a restaurateur and philanthropist, received the Champion Award for his work as the executive vice president of Palm Restaurant Group, which has programs to fight hunger and support local communities, and for championing LGBTQ issues.

After giving his acceptance speech, he kissed Billie on the cheek and hugged her and Ava, E! News has learned.
