Published Jul 30, 2019Lori Loughlin and her family have been keeping a low profile since being named in the college admissions scandal, but the Full House actress' daughters returned to social media for the first time since the scandal broke yesterday (July 29) to wish their mom "happy birthday."
Daughter Olivia Jade, 19, shared a photo of herself as a baby with her famous mom, captioning the shot "one day late. happy birthday. i love you so much."
Her 20-year-old sister Bella shared a more recent shot of herself with her mom, along with the caption "happy birthday mama. I love you."
Both posts marked the first posts from the family since Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and money laundering back in April. In the wake of the scandal, Loughlin disabled her Instagram account.
Loughlin and her husband allegedly paid $500,000 USD to the scam's mastermind Rick Singer — $200,000 USD for each of their two daughters to be accepted at the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, and an additional $50,000 USD per child to be passed on to the athletic director at USC.
Both Loughlin and Giannulli pleaded not guilty to all charges against them.
Loughlin has since been dropped by the Hallmark Channel and is not expected to return to Fuller House.
