Billie Lourd‘s son, Kingston, is being schooled in the Jedi ways by none other than his grandmother. On May the 4th, “Star Wars Day,” Lourd shared images of her son gazing at scenes from the films featuring his late grandmother portraying Princess Leia.
Carrie Fisher was featured heavily in the images including on a unique baby onesie Kingston is wearing in the photos! Check them out below!

“????♏️????️???? ✝️♓️???? 4️⃣✝️♓️????” Billie Lourd captioned the cute photos of her son who can be seen wearing a hat that looks like Leia’s iconic double-buns hairdo.
The second photo in the gallery-style post on Instagram showcases her son’s impressive white onesie with Carrie Fisher’s likeness on it.
Lourd is no stranger to being in front of the camera herself as she has appeared in the latest Star Wars installments as Kaydel Connix.
It was a rare glimpse of her son, Kingston, who was born in September. The news came as a shock to fans as Lourd had not announced her pregnancy and, due to the ongoing pandemic situation, she was able to make her baby’s arrival a huge surprise.
She shares baby Kingston with fiancé Austen Rydell and neither parent seems to eager to share their son’s face with the public.
While a lot of Lourd’s pregnancy details have remained a mystery, she did open up a little bit about her experience on a podcast with her stepfather, Bruce Bozzi.
In a January episode of Sirius XM’s Quarantined with Bruce, Lourd explained “He’s not technically a quarantine baby, and I want to make that known because a lot of people are having trendy quarantine babies,” she said at the time. “Kingston was conceived before quarantine. He’s technically just a Caribbean baby.”
The actor said the pregnancy wasn’t planned but it “turned out to be kind of a blessing in disguise having a quarantine baby, but he’s not a quarantine baby, because I got to keep it to myself.”
“Only my family knew and nobody else knew,” she explained, “like everyone was so surprised when we posted that little picture of his feet. It got to just be something I shared with the people I loved the most, which was so incredible and made my pregnancy so magical and wonderful, which I did not expect it was going to be.”
“But it turned out to be the greatest experience,” she continued. “I got to just eat great food, hang out with the people I love, do Legos all the time, I took a hypno-birthing class. I loved being pregnant.”
“I’ve wanted to be a mom since I was 2 years old, I always had a plan,” she told Bozzi. “Like, literally when I was 3, I’d tell you, ‘I want like four kids. I want like one at 28,’ which is so weird ’cause I had Kingston at 28 and it ended up happening, but it’s even better than I could have ever expected.”
The Star Wars star called her husband “best dad in the world,” in the episode.
“He was so caring and incredible and cooked for me and gave me foot massages,” Billie Lourd said of Rydell, who “did these classes with me, like he did the lactation class, he did the positive birthing class. So he was with me every step of the way. And we just became even closer friends, even better partners.”
We were so thrilled to see baby Kingston is keeping his grandmother’s spirit alive. We imagine the force is strong in that little one.
