Actress Lori Loughlin is back on TV, and no one is more proud than her daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Giannulli.

As Yahoo reported, Olivia Jade jumped to her Instagram Story over the weekend to announce that her mom’s new movie, “When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas,” was about to premiere.

“Yaaaaa baby SHE BACK ON THE BIG SCREEN for all u hearties out there,” she captioned under a photo of Loughlin stepping out of a horse-drawn carriage.

Well to be precise, unless you have a really huge flat screen TV, Loughlin’s return to the spotlight came via the GAC Family network. “When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas” is a two-part holiday film offshoot of the Hallmark Channel drama, "When Hope Calls,” which was itself an offshoot of the series, “When Calls the Heart.”

Loughlin, 57, starred in that show as Abigail Stanton for five seasons. The “90210” alum reprises the Abigail role in the "When Hope Calls" Christmas movie.

Loughlin was taken off “When Calls the Heart” after the infamous college admission scandal hit in 2019. Loughlin was sentenced in May 2020, and ultimately spent two months in prison, was fined $150,000, and was ordered to 150 hours of community service for her involvement in the scheme.

The daughter's father, Mossimo Giannulli, 58, received a five-month jail sentence, a $250,000 fine, and 250 hours of community service.

Isabella chimed in too on an Instagram story with, “If you have GAC, be sure to check out this wonderful woman’s performance tonight. It also airs on IMDB & Amazon.”

And she didn’t stop there.

“Check out the 2-hour holiday special of WHEN HOPE CALLS tonight on the new GAC Family Network… Mom doesn’t have Instagram so I’ve made the decision that I will be taking it upon myself to promote for her because I love her and she is a wonderful woman and actress. That’s all! Tune in weeeeee.”

Olivia Jade – who recently finished up a stint on “Dancing with the Stars” in October – has previously gushed over mother. “Literally right after we got off the stage I called her!" Olivia Jade said to reporters back in October. "She’s the biggest support ever. She’s really proud of me and I love her so much. She’s, like, my hero. So it’s really nice to know she’s watching and she’s really proud… Mama bear! She’s excited.”
