KIDS BREAK SOCIAL MEDIA SILENCE FOR LORI LOUGHLIN’S BIRTHDAY AS SHE FACES TRIAL

Lori Loughlin turned 55 on Sunday, and she and her family reportedly held a low-key party in honor of the milestone, People reports. Loughlin and her husband, the fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are facing charges in the college cheating scandal that has swept up more than 50 people. (Prosecutors claim Loughlin and Giannulli paid $500K to help get their daughters Bella and Olivia into University of Southern Cal; they are pleading not guilty.)

Bella and Olivia both wished Loughlin a happy birthday on Instagram. "Happy birthday mama. I love you," Bella captioned a black-and-white photo of the two. (She previously deleted her account following the scandal.)

Olivia also dedicated her own post to Loughlin, sharing a throwback photo of the mother-daughter duo. The post marks her first since the scandal.

Both Olivia, who was a social media influencer, and Loughlin lost multiple jobs following the scandal.

If convicted of fraud and money laundering, the couple faces up to 20 years in prison for each charge. They are next due in court on August 27th.
