Carrie Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, said in a touching Instagram post that she was “beyond proud” of her mother’s first Grammy award on Sunday, which Fisher won just over a year after her death.

Fisher won best spoken word album for the audiobook of her memoir “The Princess Diarist.” The win was widely celebrated on social media.

“Princess Diarist was the last profesh(ish) thing my momby and I got to do together,” Lourd said in her post. “I wish she was here to carry me down the red carpet in some bizarre floral ensemble but instead we’ll celebrate in true Carrie style: in bed in front of the TV over cold Coca Colas and warm e cigs. I’m beyond proud.”

The 2018 Grammy Awards marked the second time Fisher was nominated for a Grammy. She previously was nominated for the audiobook version of her memoir “Wishful Drinking,” which was published in 2008.

On Sunday, the “Star Wars” icon beat out Bruce Springsteen, songwriter Shelly Peiken, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, actor Mark Ruffalo, and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders to win the award.
