Yesterday was "May the Fourth Be With You" Day, and Billie Lourd didn't fail to take time to celebrate her late mother, Carrie Fisher. Lourd paid tribute to Fisher's legendary character, Princess Leia, using the youngest "Star Wars" fan ― her son.

The "Scream Queens" actor blessed fans with an adorable photo of her baby boy Kingston learning about his grandmother's legacy as he watched her on the screen in the original 1977 movie, "Star Wars: A New Hope."

Little Kingston laid on his chest as she doted on his grandmother. His head was covered with a brown knitted cap that mirrored Princess Leia's hair buns. In the next slide, the toddler was seen wearing a onesie with a Leia drawing.

The late Fisher made her debut as Princess Leia in the original and reprised her role in five more sequels ― three while she was alive and the other two posthumously. Fisher passed away in December 2016 at 60.

The iconic actress suffered a heart attack while on a plane and was taken to the intensive care unit, where she passed away four days after. Sleep apnea and atherosclerosis were listed as the cause of death.

The "Booksmart" actress also informed fans that they were keen on passing on a love of "Star Wars" to their son.

In a statement after her demise, Lourd acknowledged her mother's battle with addiction and mental illness while praising her mother's impactful legacy and openness with her struggles.

Lourd welcomed Kingston with her fiancé Austen Rydell. The duo announced Kingston's birth in September after a secret pregnancy. In an Instagram Q & A with fans, the 28-year-old opened up about her pregnancy journey.

The mother-of-one noted that the second trimester was her favorite part of being pregnant. However, her craving for ice cream almost caused her to have a gestational diabetes scare.

The "Booksmart" actress also informed fans that they were keen on passing on a love of "Star Wars" to their son. She shared a picture of a whimsical light switch in Kingston's room with the words "light side" and "dark side" on it.

Lourd and Rydell, also an actor, have been dating since 2017. Rydell popped the question in June 2020 and shared the great news via his Instagram page. Lourd, however, didn't publicly confirm the engagement.
