Billie Lourd may come from Hollywood royalty, but she’s proven herself worthy of our praise time and time again. The daughter of the late Carrie Fisher (and therefore the granddaughter of the late Debbie Reynolds), Lourd has made a name for herself separate from that of her family. Starring in Star Wars, Screen Queens, American Horror Story, Booksmart, and more, Billie Lourd has been busy.
And well, now she’s going to be a different kind of busy: She’s a mom! In a surprise Instagram post, Lourd revealed that she just had a baby boy named Kingston Fisher Lourd Rydell. Yes, Fisher. Don’t worry, I’m crying.

It’s kind of beautiful that she managed to keep her pregnancy a secret and got to announce the birth of her son completely on her own. Her family is very in the public eye, and even when her mother and grandmother died within two days of each other, many were grieving very publicly while Lourd was coping. So, for her to have this privacy is absolutely amazing, and I’m happy for her. She did this all on her own terms, and she deserves it.
Fans everywhere erupted into praise and congratulations to the young star!
