Billie Lourd Says Early Relationship with Mom Carrie Fisher Taught Her 'What Not to Do' with Son Kingston

Billie Lourd is looking back on her relationship with late mom Carrie Fisher.

In a new interview, the 29-year-old American Horror Story actress opened up about the “pressure” she faced as a child to take care of her mom and how that experience taught her “what not to do” with her 1-year-old son Kingston.

My main job when [Fisher] was alive was taking care of her and making sure she was okay,” Billie said in an interview on the New Day podcast. “I was her main support, and I was 7, for a lot of the time, and that was really hard and that’s why I grew up really fast because I was her best friend. I was her mother, I was her kid, I was her everything. And that’s one of the things I’m learning not to do with my kid.”

Billie continued, “There’s a lot of things that my mom taught me to do and then there’s a lot that is, honestly it might be more valuable, of what not to do. And that’s one of the things that I will not do to my son is put this pressure on him that I had on me.”

Carrie died on December 27, 2016 at the age of 60.

Billie and fiance Austen Rydell welcomed Kingston in September 2020. They honored her late mom with their son’s middle name.

Last month, Billie shared some very rare photos of Kingston in honor of his first birthday.
