Debbie Reynolds dies one day after daughter Carrie Fisher’s death

Silver screen icon Debbie Reynolds died Wednesday after reportedly suffering a stroke — just a day after the death of her daughter, Carrie Fisher. She was 84.

Reynolds was at the Beverly Hills home of her son, Todd Fisher, discussing funeral plans for her daughter when she suffered the medical emergency around 1 p.m.

“My mom is with my sister,” Todd Fisher told the Daily News Wednesday evening, breaking down in tears.

“She wanted to be with her. She always took care of her. That’s all I can say right now,” Fisher said.

Reynolds’ daughter, Carrie Fisher, the 60-year-old “Star Wars” actress who played Princess Leia, died Tuesday after suffering a heart attack on a plane.

Fisher was flying from London to Los Angeles Friday when she went into cardiac arrest roughly 15 minutes before landing.

“Debbie Reynolds was one of the last of Hollywood Royalty. It breaks my heart that she is gone. I’d hoped that my grieving was done for 2016,” actor William Shatner tweeted.

A prolific actress and singer, Reynolds was born in El Paso, Texas, in 1932.
