Her son’s middle name honours Billie’s late mother, Carrie Fisher, who passed away back in 2016.

The legendary Star Wars actress died of a heart attack on December 27, 2016.

Billie’s celebrity friends were quick to congratulate her, including her Scream Queens co-star Emma Roberts – who’s expecting her first child with Garrett Hedlund.
