Billie Lourd dressed her baby as Princess Leia this week – and our hearts

This is so sweet.

Earlier this week it was May 4th, better known to Star Wars fans as May The Fourth Be With You day.

All over social media, fans of the popular sci fi movies posted their own tribute to the Star Wars franchise 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), posted this photo of her baby – and our hearts aren’t able.


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

The Scream Queens star shared the picture of her baby dressed as Princess Leia watching their grandmother in action.

Carrie Fisher sadly 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!’ And it is, too.


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 iconic buns.

She 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.
