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.”
