Riverdale's Lili Reinhart sadly announces her grandma's demise, whom she fondly calls Nana, on Instagram and admits she is "heartbroken."
The blonde 21-year-old actress announced the sad news on Tuesday morning as she shared a black-and-white photograph of her beloved grandmother. In the caption, Reinhart made sure her fans got a wind of how Nana was and is loved by her family.
"I'm heartbroken. Speechless. All I can say right now is how loved she was by her entire family. We will miss her more than words can say," Reinhart wrote.
Apart from this, she had not released any details. Surely, Reinhart is going through a tough time, especially as she had once revealed she greatly values her family.
On Monday, Reinhart was not shy to tell everyone just how much she appreciates her mom. She referred to the matriarch as "an actual angel."
Her mom, Amy, also took it to social media to share a poem dedicated to her deceased mother. The poem is titled "Embracing Hope."
Moreover, it has just been more than a month since Reinhart admitted she is battling depression. In an interview, she admitted she had come face-to-face with the disorder at 18. She had been open about this, as she tries to inspire other people dealing with it as well.
"It was a really rough, rough point in my life," Reinhart pointed out.
Reinhart cited how she had somehow helped some fans who were on the brink of losing it. In an event, she narrated how a girl came up to tell her that what she said about mental health had hindered the fan from committing suicide.
Meanwhile, of late, Reinhart made headlines after slamming Cosmopolitan Philippines for Photoshopping her and Riverdale costar Camila Mendes's body in the magazine. The two stars took to Instagram to share their disgust on the alterations done on their photos.
Reinhart lashed out at the local Cosmopolitan, saying it just proves that beauty standards, which are socially constructed, still exist and that the injustice is still occurring. So clearly, she is not just wishing to inform everyone about fighting depression, she is also setting an example by championing body positivity and self-acceptance.
"It's an every day battle, sometimes. And to see our bodies become so distorted in an editing process is a perfect example of the obstacles we have yet to overcome," Reinhart wrote in her Instagram Story.
