“Love you,” said another.
Lourd and her mother are Hollywood royalty, as Fisher’s parents are actress Debbie Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher. The two share Fischer and her brother Todd, while Eddie welcomed two more daughters, Jolie and Tricia Leigh, with actress Connie Stevens.
For many years of her childhood, Fisher also had a famous stepmother to the icon Elizabeth Taylor.
The “Star Wars” actress was briefly married to singer-songwriter Paul Simon and dated Lourd’s father, talent agent Brian Lourd, from 1991–1994. Lourd himself welcomed a baby boy in September 2020.
Fischer died on December 27, 2016. The next day, Reynolds died after having a stroke.
