Billie Lourd shares photo of her baby dressed as Leia and our hearts

Melissa Carton

This is so sweet.

Yesterday was May 4th, better known to Star Wars fans as May the fourth be with you day.

All over my social media yesterday I saw fans of the popular sci fi movies posting their own tribute to Star Wars but one photo in particular blew them all out of the water.

Billie Lourd, daughter of Carrie Fisher best known for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise, posted this photo of her baby and our hearts aren’t able.

THE BUNS!

I’m sorry but we might just explode from the cuteness in this photo.

The Scream Queens star posted a photo of her baby dressed as Princess Leia watching their grandmother in action.

Carrie Fisher unfortunately passed away in 2016 and was never able to meet her grandchild, who was born last year, which makes the photo all the more heartwarming.

Friends of the 28-year-old mum, including her Scream Queens co-stars Ariana Grande and Emma Roberts were also obsessed with the adorable photograph with Roberts writing ‘This is everything!’

It is not the first time that Lourd has paid homage to her famous mother as her character wore ear muffs during both seasons of Scream Queens as a nod to Princess Leia’s buns.

Lourd also played Lieutenant Kaydel Ko Connix in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Lourd is engaged to actor Austen Rydell, with whom she has a son, Kingston Fisher, born in September 2020.
