Billie Lourd is one proud daughter.

The actress congratulated her late mother Carrie Fisher on her posthumous Grammy win on Sunday night. Fisher, who died in December 2016, was honored with the best spoken word album award for her book The Princess Diarist.

Princess Diarist was the last profesh(ish) thing my momby and I got to do together,” Lourd wrote on Instagram. “I wish she was here to carry me down the red carpet in some bizarre floral ensemble but instead we’ll celebrate in true Carrie style: in bed in front of the TV over cold Coca Colas and warm e cigs. I’m beyond proud.”

Fisher was flying from London to Los Angeles on Dec. 23, 2016, when she went into cardiac arrest. Paramedics removed her from the flight and rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she was treated for a heart attack. She died in the hospital four days later.
