Billie Lourd has thanked a group of friends for their support as she mourns her mother's death. Billie sadly lost her mum Carrie Fisher on 27 December and one day later her grandmother Debbie Reynolds also passed away.

Taking to Instagram, Billie showed that she could always count on her friends to make her laugh. The group donned onesies for a cosy night in and Billie wrote: "This group of onesie clad supremely supportive humans (and many others #notpicturedbutinthepicture) are the kings and queens of my world."

She added the hashtags: "#gratefulfortheirgreatness #friendsfindingthefunny."

Among her pals was her new boyfriend Taylor Lautner, who Billie has been dating for the past couple of months. The pair were first linked in early December at the wrap party of their show Scream Queens, where they were spotted kissing.

The actress has been dating her co-star Taylor Lautner for a couple of months

Billie and Taylor, both 24, have grown closer ever since Billie lost her mum and grandmother. At the time, the Twilight star shared a photo with his girlfriend, praising her for her strength. "This girl is one of the strongest, most fearless individuals I've ever met. Absolutely beautiful inside and out. I'm lucky to know you @praisethelourd .. ❤, me," he wrote.

Taylor has no doubt been a rock for Billie. The couple went on holiday together to Mexico earlier this month and Taylor shared a poolside photo with his pretty girlfriend, showing Billie relaxing on a sun lounger.

Carrie passed away in December

The actress has largely kept away from social media since her mum's death, but last week she shared a throwback photo with Carrie including a quote that she used to say, "If my life weren't funny then it would just be true and that is unacceptable."

Billie poignantly wrote: "Finding the funny might take a while but I learned from the best and her voice will forever be in my head and in my heart."
