Her most recent — on Christmas Day — was also a gift to fans of her daughter, Carrie Fisher.

“Carrie is in stable condition,” Reynolds, 84, said of Fisher, 60, who suffered cardiac arrest Friday on a plane about to land at LAX. “If there is a change, we will share it. For all her fans & friends. I thank you for your prayers & good wishes.”

Well-wishers continued to post, including “Star Wars” alumni:

Media reported that a United Airlines flight was on approach Friday to Los Angeles when the actress famed for her Princess Leia role in “Star Wars” became ill. Fisher was transported to a hospital from LAX.

LAFD Spokesman Erik Scott told CNN: “Paramedics standing by upon arrival provided advanced life support and aggressively treated and transported patient to local hospital.”

TMZ reported that Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, and French bulldog, Gary, arrived at UCLA Medical Center shortly after the actress was rushed there.

Fellow actress Anna Akana, 27, was on the same flight and tweeted her observations, including “Carrie Fisher stopped breathing on the flight home.” Akana thanked the “United flight crew who jumped into action, and the awesome doctor and nurse passengers who helped.”

But Akana’s final tweet Friday was: “Dear news: NOT interested in talking. Pls stop calling Brad and myself. Merely wanted to express our shock & sadness & alert fam asap” Brad is fellow comedian Brad Gage.

Gage had tweeted: “I sat in front of Carrie Fisher on our flight from London and she was just taken off the plane by EMTs.”
