Robin Williams' daughter, Zelda Williams, took to Twitter late Monday to pay tribute to her father just hours after news of his death was announced.

Zelda, a 25-year-old actress and Williams' only daughter, tweeted a quote from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's "The Little Prince."

"You  you alone will have the stars as no one else has them," the quote read. “In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night...You  only you  will have stars that can laugh."


"I love you, I miss you," Zelda tweeted, "I'll try to keep looking up, Z."

Williams, 63, was found dead in his Tiburon, Calif., home Monday of an apparent suicide.

Williams was active on social media. His final post on Instagram was two weeks ago, wishing Zelda a happy 25th birthday.

 

Zelda was named for the character in the classic Nintendo video game, "The Legend of Zelda." In 2011, the pair starred in a commercial to promote an updated version of the title ("The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D"), and Williams explained the origin of the name.

"You're lucky you're not named Mario or Luigi," Williams joked.


The actor leaves behind three children: Zelda and 22-year-old Cody (both from Williams' second marriage); and 31-year-old Zachary Pym (from his first).

Susan Schneider, Williams' third wife, said she was "utterly heartbroken."

"This morning, I lost my husband and my best friend, while the world lost one of its most beloved artists and beautiful human beings," Schneider said in a statement. "We are asking for privacy during our time of profound grief. As he is remembered, it is our hope the focus will not be on Robin's death, but on the countless moments of joy and laughter he gave to millions."
