Just a day after the death of her daughter Carrie Fisher, actress Debbie Reynolds has reportedly died after being been rushed to the hospital, possibly suffering from a stroke.
The Associated Press confirmed that Reynolds has died at age 84, one day after her daughter, Carrie Fisher, passed away.
Reynolds’ son, Todd Fisher, told media outlets that his mother was under stress over the death of her daughter and suffered a stroke at her home at about noon. Reynolds told him she missed her daughter and wanted to be with her, reported the Los Angeles Times.
Reynolds was rushed to the hospital Wednesday afternoon.
TMZ reported the 84-year-old Reynolds was at her son’s house in Beverly Hills, California, Wednesday when someone from the home called 9-1-1.
A Los Angeles Fire Department spokesperson confirmed to People that they responded to a “request for medical aid” at 1:02 p.m. and that they “transported one adult female patient in fair to serious condition to Cedars [Sinai Medical Center].”
On Tuesday, “Star Wars” actress Carrie Fisher, who is the daughter of Reynolds and famed singer Eddie Fisher died after a heart attack she suffered during an 11-hour flight from London to Los Angeles on Friday.
“Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter,” Reynolds said on Facebook in the wake of Carrie’s death. “I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop.”
Reynolds had updated fans about Fisher on Christmas Day, thanking friends and fans “for your prayers and good wishes.”
Her son, Todd, had posted a family photo of Reynolds with him and Carrie as kids just two hours before Wednesday’s trip to the hospital, and he also posted a message to his late sister.
“My sister has graduated to heaven, but she has left us all with so much of her,” he wrote. “It is a very sad time for my family and all her friends.
