US WEEKLY – Baby No. 2 is here! Billie Lourd has welcomed her second child with Austen Rydell.
The Booksmart actress, 30, gave birth on Monday, December 12, according to her father, Bryan Lourd. “My daughter had a baby last night,” he gushed during Variety‘s Dealmakers Breakfast in California on Tuesday, December 13. “I left the hospital at 1:30 and got there this morning at 6 [a.m.] I’m a little tired, but happy.”
The talent agent, 62, added: “Everything’s great. So if I wander, it’s because the adrenaline is still flowing.”
Billie revealed her second pregnancy at the London premiere of Ticket to Paradise in September. She stepped out in a sequined, light pink frock with tulle sleeves, cradling her growing baby bump while posing on the red carpet with Rydell, 30.
The big reveal came two years after the parents got engaged in June 2020. “She said YES!! (Actually she said ‘Duhhh’),” the producer, who dated the California native on and off for four years before popping the question, captioned his Instagram reveal at the time. “But I guess that’s even better than yes?!”
Billie Lourd, Colin Hanks, Aisling Bea Board Transatlantic Comedy Drama ‘And Mrs’ (EXCLUSIVE)
VARIETY – Billie Lourd, Colin Hanks and Aisling Bea have boarded the transatlantic comedy “And Mrs,” which is set to start shooting in east London this fall.
The British feature centers on Gemma, a woman living in London (Bea), whose American fiancé Nathan (Hanks) dies shortly before their wedding day. When, with some encouragement from her sister-in-law, she decides to go ahead and marry him anyway, she has to overcome public opinion, the law of the land and even her own family’s objections.
Lourd, who landed her breakout turn in Olivia Wilde’s feature directorial debut “Booksmart” and is due to star alongside Julia Roberts and George Clooney in Working Title’s comedy “Ticket to Paradise,” plays Nathan’s chaotic but well-meaning sister, Audrey.
The feature will be directed by Australian director Daniel Reisinger, whose YouTube Originals series “Sideswiped,” starring Rosana Arquette, Peter Gallagher, Carly Craig and Jason Sudeikis, garnered more than 55 million views.
The film marks the second feature for comedy producer Dan Hine’s London label, Who’s on First. Hine will be producing alongside U.S. producing and financing partners, FirstGen Content. Executive producers for FirstGen include Michael D’Alto, Chris Triana, Claude Amadeo and Randal Sandler.
Reisinger said: “‘And Mrs’ is the comedy we need after the last couple of years, one which helps us laugh through the tears. We’re lucky to have a cast gifted enough to nail the unique tone and who really embody their characters.”
Hine added: “We are absolutely delighted to be working with these three actors, who all share a deep personal connection to the material. It feels like this story has really found its moment post-pandemic — we cannot wait to bring it to life.”
‘And Mrs’ is written by up and coming playwright Melissa Bubnic, whose play “Boys Will Be Boys” will transfer worldwide from Sydney to London, New York and Italy. Bubnic is currently writing episodes of “Nautilus” for Disney+, and “A Town Called Malice” and “Stan’s Two Hands” for Sky Max.
Lourd is repped by Alex Mebed at CAA.
