Billie Lourd Reveals Birth of Her First Child in Surprise Announcement
September 25, 2020
Billie Lourd is a mom!
The Booksmart actress posted the announcement that she and boyfriend Austen Rydell had welcomed her first child on the evening of Thursday, September 24. The announcement came as a surprise to many, as Lourd and Rydell had never publicly mentioned the pregnancy.
“Introducing Kingston Fisher Lourd Rydell,” she wrote in the caption of an Instagram post, alongside an image of the baby’s feet. The baby’s middle name, Fisher, is likely a tribute to the late Carrie Fisher, Lourd’s mother. In the image Kingston also seemed to be wearing a space-themed onesie, perhaps paying homage to Fisher’s most notable role, Princess Leia in Star Wars.
Lourd and Rydell rekindled their relationship in 2017 and got engaged in June. Congrats to the new parents!
