Debbie Reynolds' son has revealed his mother's last words before she died on Wednesday, just one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher.

The 84-year-old tragically passed away at Cedars-Sinai hospital after suffering from a reporter stroke.

Carrie's brother Todd confirmed his mother's death as he told Reuters: "It's true, she's with Carrie."

He also said that his mother had said that she missed her daughter and wanted to be with her.

"She left very shortly after that and those were the last words she spoke," he said.

One of the most enduring and endearing Hollywood stars of her time, Reynolds received a best actress Academy Award nomination for the 1964 musical The Unsinkable Molly Brown.

Carrie Fisher, who rose to fame as Princess Leia in the Star Wars films and later battled through drug addiction before going on to tell her story as a best-selling author, died on Tuesday at age 60 after suffering a heart attack last Friday.

After Fisher's death, Reynolds said on Facebook: "Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter. I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop."

Reynolds had been in frail health in the past year, and she missed a dinner in November 2015 to receive an honorary Oscar.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said at the time that she was unable to attend because of "an unexpectedly long recovery from recent surgery."

The nature of her illness was not disclosed. Fisher told reporters in May 2016 that her mother was "doing really well," but she did not give details.
