The 84-year-old actress and singer was rushed to a hospital on Wednesday after suffering a stroke, New York Times reported.
Reynolds passed away a day after her daughter — “Star Wars” actress Carrie Fisher died aged 60.
“She wanted to be with Carrie,” Reynolds’ son Todd Fisher said.
Reynolds – best known for her roles on stage and screen, including the 1952 movie musical classic “Singin’ in the Rain” – was reportedly “distraught” in the hours after Fisher’s death Tuesday.
She had been discussing funeral plans with Todd when the stroke occurred, reports said.
