Savannah Chrisley Celebrates Without Her Parents Julie and Todd Chrisley: “Tough Day Without Mama and Daddy”

Savannah Chrisley is learning what Easter Sunday is like without her parents, Julie Chrisley and Todd Chrisley, there to celebrate it with her as they continue to serve out their respective 7-year and 12-year prison sentences after being convicted of bank fraud, tax evasion, and wire fraud back in June 2022. 

Savannah shared a couple of photos to her Instagram Story, one of which read “Tough day without mama and daddy… we can do it though! Our ressurection [sic] is coming ❤️.” She appeared to be spending the day with friends and siblings, even posting a photo of herself by the pool as she takes in the holiday. 

With her parents in prison, Savannah was forced to take custody of her 16-year-old brother, Chase, and 10-year-old niece, Chloe – who she treats like a sister ever since her parents adopted her in 2016. The trio have remained close as they navigate their new lives without Todd or Julie there to raise them.

Her Instagram Stories come just a few days after her father’s birthday – another day Savannah Chrisley normally spent with her parents, but those days are gone (for now, at least). She took to Instagram to honor her father in a post and shared another post regarding the upcoming holiday and its significance. 

“As this holiday weekend rolls around all I feel is grief. In 25 years I have never spent a single holiday without my sweet mama and daddy. Not only is Easter this weekend… but my daddy’s birthday is tomorrow,” she wrote in a caption on April 5th – one day before her father, Todd, turned 54 years old. 

She urged others not to pretend they’re not hurt or that this time of year isn’t hard. Instead of avoiding those feelings, she wants her fans to lean into them and understand that grief isn’t just a symbol of pain, but it’s a symbol of love. She believes you shouldn’t want to avoid the grief in your life, but only the pain.

“When you lose someone special, your world lacks its celebratory qualities. Holidays magnify that loss. The sadness deepens and the loneliness can feel isolating. What I have learned is the need for support may be the greatest during the holidays,” she continued – adding that she will get through the holiday.

In a separate post on April 6, she wrote about how it’s been 80 days since her parents left and how this is Todd’s first birthday he has ever spent without his family. “It’s been 80 days. 80 days since I last received a “goodnight my angel” text or and “I love you more,” she wrote in a caption alongside a family photo.

“My parents have also been together almost 30 years… and in that 30 years never have they ever spent a birthday apart. So today… I’m imagining us all together in one bear hug circle!!” she concluded in the caption. Unfortunately, this is a feeling she’ll have to learn to get used to for the next 10+ years. 

Not only that, but Savannah Chrisley is quickly learning the many blessings – and hardships – that come with raising a teenager and child by herself. She recently spoke about how she is finding it difficult to maintain a quality dating life while she cares for her brother and niece/sister, but she tries to make it work.

Both will also face a 16-month probation period once released.
