Going through labour is one of the most intense experiences any mother will go through. When it was Katie Stricker Curtis’ turn however, she came up with a cunning plan to add a little humour to the moment.
Katie wore a Chewbacca mask that translated her cries of pain into hilarious Wookiee growls!
We first found out about these masks from the world-famous Chewbacca Mom, but Katie has stolen her thunder with this new use for the toy.
You might be wondering why anyone would think to do this, and Katie has an answer in her caption for the video on Facebook
‘Just because I'm about to be a mom doesn't mean I have to grow up! Bwahahahahs never take life too seriously! Best Christmas gift ever! #havingababy #pregnancyhairgrowth’
Later she and her partner Scott welcomed their baby girl Jayden into the world.
Meanwhile her hilarious video has gone viral with over 120,000 views!
