Lori Loughlin's daughter Bella has returned to social media to wish her mother a happy birthday after she had disappeared from Instagram for six months in the aftermath of her parents accused of the bribe scandal in college.
The 20-year-old shared a sweet tribute to her actress-mother on the social media site, including an old black-and-white image of the two while writing: & # 39; Congratulations mom. I love you. & # 39;
It is the first image she has posted on her Instagram account since January 26, when she shared a photo of herself and her YouTube star sister Olivia Jade, 19, who also broke her social media silence to respond to Bella & # 39; s birthday tribute to their mother.
Back in action? Lori Loughlin & # 39; s daughter Isabella, 20, returned to social media after a six-month break to wish her mother a happy birthday on Sunday.
Next example: Bella & # 39; s younger sister Olivia Jade, 19, did not share her own image, but she has posted a sweet response to the post of her brother or sister, which was last posted on Instagram in February
Although she did not share her own photo tribute, Olivia wrote: & # 39; My People & # 39; next to her sister's post while she added a red heart emoji for emphasis.
The last image posted on Olivia's Instagram account was made on February 28, days before both her parents, Lori and designer Mossimo Giannulli, were first involved in Operation Varsity Blues, a scandal in which the whole family became intensively viewed and criticized.
Lori, 55, and Mossimo, 56, have both been charged with paying $ 500,000 in bribes to secure both of their daughters coveted spots in the crew team of the University of Southern California, thereby securing a place at elite college .
Both have pleaded not guilty of the allegations, but the family has been startled by the consequences of the scandal, with reports quickly emerging from a bitter gulf between parents and their youngest daughter Olivia, allegedly disappearing from the vast family Bel Air home.
In May it was reported that Olivia hardly spoke for months & # 39; had with one of her parents, with various media suggesting that she had stayed with friends while she was looking for her own permanent residence away from her parents.
Olivia's decision to withdraw from social media was also a very clear indication of her desire to take a step away from the scandal and her involvement in it.
In the days and weeks after her parents' involvement in Operation Varsity Blues, many of Olivia's old YouTube videos & # 39; s were dragged through the mud as critics scrutinized her seemingly casual attitude toward her college education, while dozens other social media star videos & # 39; s and Instagram shared messages focused on the scandal.

Olivia had been working as a professional influencer for several years before the scandal broke out and boasted millions of dedicated fans on both her YouTube and Instagram accounts, where she regularly shared sneak peeks in her privileged lifestyle.
In the aftermath of Operation Varsity Blues, however, many of the brands that had once been desperate to report the young person as a spokes model have broken ties with Olivia, with both TRESemmé and Sephora declaring that they no longer worked with her in the days after her the involvement of parents in the scandal was made public.
However, the latest display of siblings on social media suggests that the family has at least begun to repair the gap caused by the bribery scandal in college – and the girls are probably preparing to support their parents while they prepare for the next trial.
Olivia and Bella do not seem to have joined their parents for the first part of Lori's birthday celebrations on Sunday when she and Mossimo attended church in Southern California.
Lori, who is best known for playing Rebecca & Aunt Becky & # 39; Katsopolis at Full House and the restart of Netflix, wore a gray jersey dress with gray Birkenstocks.
They accessorized with a tan fedora with black belt and a carrying case with black and white horizontal stripes and reflective sunglasses.
Mossimo wore a navy blue linen shirt with buttons, rolled up sleeves, white pants with Gucci loafers, black sunglasses with a watch.
The actress and fashion designer, who were involved in chatter, have had to deal with constant media research over the past five months because they were named as one of the 50 people who were the federal prosecutors in Massachusetts as part of Operation Varsity Blues.

The operation was aimed at parents, counselors and coaches who had been guilty of alleged fraud to help the admission process. Actress Felicity Huffman was also charged in the operation and has since been found guilty of mail fraud and honest mail fraud and is waiting for prison.
Authorities said that Loughlin and Giannulli paid around $ 500,000 to have daughters Isabella Rose, 20, and Olivia Jade, 19, recruited for the University of Southern California rowing team, despite the fact that neither was involved in the sport.
Loughlin and Giannulli, who plead not to be guilty in the case, said in recent court documents that they have a & # 39; united front & # 39; in the case against them, the Mercury News reported.
& # 39; Giannulli and Loughlin are innocent of the charges against them and would like to delete their name, & # 39; said lawyers for the couple in legal documents. & # 39; And they believe their interests will be most effectively promoted by presenting a united front against the government's unfounded allegations. & # 39;
Loughlin and Giannulli are scheduled to return to court on August 27.
