Watch: Lori Loughlin Released From Prison After Less Than 2 Months

Lori Loughlin has done her time behind bars.

On Monday, Dec. 28, E! News confirmed that the Fuller House star was released from prison after serving less than two months due to her involvement with the college admissions scandal.

While Lori's sentence still includes two years of supervised release and 100 hours of community service, those close to the actress say she is simply happy to be a free woman.

"She texted friends that she was out," a source exclusively shared with E! News. "She is relieved and incredibly happy it's over with, but she is still very worried about Mossimo Giannulli and upset for him."

The fashion designer and Lori's husband of 23 years is currently serving his five-month prison sentence and is scheduled for release in April 2021. Like Lori, Mossimo previously pled guilty to conspiracy charges in securing the fraudulent admission of their two children, Olivia Jade Giannulli, 21, and Bella Giannulli, 20, to the University of Southern California as purported athletic recruits.

"She took a private jet flight back to the Los Angeles area that took about 45 minutes," a source shared. "She was met at the airport by a car and taken home."

Although it's unclear if the actress was able to reunite with her daughters, Olivia Jade recently appeared on Red Table Talk to discuss how her parents handled one of pop culture's biggest scandals of 2020.

"I know they're good people and I know that I'm not going to judge them for a mistake they made. Although, it's a big one," she shared. "There is no justifying or excusing what happened because what happened was wrong. And I think every single person in my family can be like, that was messed up. That was a big mistake."

While Lori's future in Hollywood appears to be uncertain at the moment, one thing is clear: She can't wait to end the year reunited with her family.

"She can't wait to see her girls and be with them," a source shared. "She is very grateful to be home and to be done with this."
