"All 'round the world you make my world go 'round," Lourd wrote about Rydell in her own Valentine's Day Instagram post.
Last month, Lourd marked Mother's Day with a tribute to Fisher on Instagram, four years after her death. Lourd also paid homage to her mother's most iconic role by appearing as a young Princess Leia in last year's "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker."
✨💞✨Sending my love to anyone who has lost a mother and anyone who might just be having a complicated Mother’s Day this year. This is my 4th Mother’s Day without my Momby and days like today are never easy, but I’ve found that doing things that make me feel more connected to her make it a little easier - watching her favorite movies, listening to music we listened to together, looking through old pictures and my personal favorite - eating + drinking things she loved. (Today I’m going to watch Postcards from The Edge, listen to Tom Petty + Dire Straits, have a fried mozzarella from La Scala and have a couple Coca-Colas with an aggressive amount of ice). Happy Mother’s Day, but Mother’s Day can be more than just one adjective, so sad Mother’s Day / weird Mother’s Day / funny Mother’s Day / angry Mother’s Day / or any combination of the above. ❤️

Fisher's death came during a heartbreaking stretch in 2016 in which Lourd's grandmother, big screen legend Debbie Reynolds, died one day after Fisher.
