Billie Lourd's stepfather Bruce Bozzi has posted a tribute to her on Instagram following the death of her mother Carrie Fisher and grandmother Debbie Reynolds, who died just one day apart from each other.

Bruce, who married Billie's father Bryan Lourd in October, shared a photo of Billie on her graduation day with Debbie and Carrie by her side, writing: "@praisethelourd it's an honour to be your Stepfather. This day, your NYU grad day we had so much fun! Yankee Stadium your mom and I laughed… as she kept one fantastic line coming after the other - no less when we all fell asleep the night before in the smaller ceremony because it was so boring. Every time Carrie looked at me she said 'how are you still awake'! Your grandmother with our sweet Ava was the kindest most loving. Carrie said to me years ago 'I'm a good stepmother' I promise I will always be & the strength of these women live so vibrantly in you. I've been lucky enough to see this for a decade!"
