Billie Lourd is a mom! The 28-year-old star of Booksmart unveiled a birth announcement last night on Instagram. She also revealed her child’s name, which pays tribute to Lourd’s dearly departed mother, Carrie Fisher.
Those teeny toes belong to Kingston Fisher Lourd Rydell, child of Billie Lourd and her fiance, Austen Rydell.
In comments, Lourd’s bundle of joy was cheered by colleagues and co-stars like Jamie Lee Curtis, Olivia Wilde, Beanie Feldstein, Emma Roberts, Lily Collins, Cody Fern, Matt Bomer, Billy Eichner, Lea Michele, and Kaitlyn Dever.
The news soon spilled over to Twitter, where her Star Wars co-star Mark Hammill celebrated:
