Billie Lourd tells her kids about Carrie Fisher

This year has been the happiest since her mother died, Lourd continued. “The birth of my daughter and seeing my son meet her were two of the most magical moments I’ve ever experienced.” But with the “magic of life” comes “the reality of grief”.

Her mother is not here to get to know the two children. “So all I can do is hold the spell tighter, hug my kids a little tighter. to tell you a story about her. tell them their favorite things. Tell them how much she would have loved them.”

Finally, the actress addressed a few words to her followers: “For everyone out there who experiences the reality of grief alongside the magic of life: I see you. You’re not alone.”
