AceShowbiz - Lori Loughlin's daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose are back on social media, after months of laying low due to the college admissions bribery scandal. The two young women broke their silence on Instagram to post a birthday tribute to their mother, who turned 55 years old on Sunday, July 28.
Bella posted a black-and-white picture with her mother and wrote along with it, "happy birthday mama. I love you."
Lori's "Full House" and "Fuller House" co-star Candace Cameron Bure weighed in on the post, writing, "Happy birthday to your mama!!!!!!!" Candace's daughter Natasha Bure also sent a birthday wish to Lori in the comment section, adding, "Happy Birthday Lori ... sweetest photo."
Olivia posted her birthday tribute a day late as she noted in her caption. "one day late. happy birthday. i love you so much," she wrote, along with a throwback photo of her as a baby with her mother.
Candace commented on the picture, "Love this picture! I remember it well," while Bella left a heart emoji. Olivia's elder sister added in another comment, "Both so tiny."
Lori and her family have been laying low since the "Full House" alum and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 to a fake charity to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as part of the school's crew team, even though neither of them participated in the sport. They pleaded not guilty to the charge, as well as an additional count of conspiracy to commit money laundering. They face a potential maximum of 40 years in prison if convicted of both charges.
In June, it was reported that Lori was second-guessing her decision to reject a plea deal. "She is watching the reduced sentences of those who have taken plea deals, and wondering each day if she's made the wrong decision," a source told ET Online. While the 55-year-old actress "still feels it's a huge misunderstanding," she couldn't help feeling "scared" after "seeing others be sentenced" in the case.
