Lourd led an emotional tribute to her late mother at a fan event, and afterward posed for a touching photo with Star Wars creator George Lucas.

Two of her "Booksmart" co-stars also chimed in, expressing surprise over the news. Meanwhile, Billie shared some snaps of them together and wrote in the caption, "All 'round the world you make my world go 'round".

Congratulations are in order for first-time mom Billie Lourde and her fiancé Austen Rydell.

Lourd announced on her social media Friday that she and her fiance, Austen Rydell, welcomed their newborn son into the world.


Carrie Fisher's "Star Wars" co-star Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in the films, was among several celebrities to congratulate the couple on the birth of their son. I can't think of another baby with both "KING" AND "LORD" in their name.

Actress Emma Roberts wrote: "Screaming!"

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis was stunned by the news. Love you guys so much", and Diana Silvers clearly couldn't hide her excitement when she exclaimed: "WHATT!

"Oh my God. Blessings to you", she wrote with a series of emojis.


Other celebs who sent their best wishes included Robin Williams' daughter Zelda Williams, Matthew Morrison, Andy Cohen and more!.

Billie and Austin have been dating since 2016.

Member Jun Matsumoto feels their song, "Whenever You Call", will appeal to both their hardcore fans and "those who do not know about us". There was recently some gossip that the pair had split up, but today's news suggests the rumors were unfounded.
