  • Billie Lourd just welcomed her first child with her fiancé, Austen Rydell!

  • The baby's name pays tribute to Billie's late mother Carrie Fisher.

Kylie Jenner can go ahead and step to the left because there's a new queen of secret pregnancies: Billie Lourd. Last night, the actress hopped on Instagram to casually reveal that she and her fiancé, Austen Rydell, welcomed a baby boy named Kingston—whose middle name "Fisher" pays tribute to Billie's late mother Carrie Fisher.

This pic is so sweet, and if you want to feel even more emotional, Carrie Fisher's Star Wars costar Mark Hamill hopped on Twitter to congratulate Billie, writing, “can’t think of another baby with both ‘KING’ and ‘LORD’ in their name.”

BTW, if you had no idea Billie was even engaged let alone a mom, here's a quick refresher. She and Austen announced their engagement in June after four years of on-and-off dating, with Austen writing "💍💍💍She said YES!! (Actually she said “Duhhh”) But I guess that’s even better than yes?!?"

Congratulations to Billie and Austen on the arrival of their adorable baby boy!
