LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Actress Debbie Reynolds has died at age 84.
Reynolds' death comes a day after the death of her daughter, actress, Carrie Fisher, who went into cardiac arrest Friday on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
Her son, Todd Fisher, told the Associated Press that Reynolds died Wednesday.
"She's now with Carrie and we're all heartbroken," Fisher said from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where his mother was taken by ambulance earlier Wednesday.
He said the stress of his sister's death on Tuesday "was too much" for Reynolds. Carrie Fisher, who was 60, had been hospitalized since Friday.
"She said, 'I want to be with Carrie,'" her son said. "And then she was gone."
Reynolds was Hollywood royalty for decades, making her film debut in "June Bride" in 1948. She notably starred alongside Gene Kelly in "Singin' in he Rain" in 1952 when she was 19 years old.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Reynolds appeared on multiple TV shows, including "The Love Boat" and "Will & Grace."
Fisher told NPR that her mother had two strokes earlier this year.
Fisher said both she and her mother were both made the Greatest American Films of All Time list.
In 2016, Reynolds was honored with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the Oscars.
