Mum goes viral overnight after sharing a video of herself wearing a Chewbacca mask while in labour.

In the 12 second clip, Katie Stricker Curtis, from Detroit, appears in the bizarre mask on her hospital bed as she holds her stomach and cries out in pain, shares Daily Mail.

However the mask hilariously translates her cries into Shyriiwook, the Wookie language from Star Wars.

Mrs Stricker Curtis later gave birth to a baby boy, Jayden, before posting the amusing video to her Facebook page.

‘Just because I’m about to be a mom doesn’t mean I have to grow up!’ She captioned the video.

‘Bwahahaha never take life too seriously! Best Christmas gift ever!’

The new mother’s video has since been viewed more than 128,000 times and praised by thousands of parents the world over.

Classic!  Good on her. Life can’t always be serious.

  • This is the best thing I’ve seen in ages!


  • It would be one way to hide your identity. I would be concerned it if moved it might restrict your breathing. I would think it would be hot as in heat to wear too. If I were the Dad I would like to to be able to see the Mum’s face.


  • Ha ha ha.. what a cracker. Good on her. Sometimes we take things too seriously so it’s nice to see someone with a sense of humour.


  • I love it. What a way to celebrate the birth of your baby boy. That will be something to show on his 18th for sure. Congratulations.


  • Now that is something you don’t see everyday!


  • I can’t view the video but wow, to have such a sense of humour during labour is impressive.


  • Funny:)


  • I like the way this woman views life in her very own way !


  • I needed calm and quiet for birth and this would not be for me. We are all different and unique and this obviously helped this mum and her family.

    • I have seen this mask elsewhere and it is a funny mask for sure.


  • Funny video – but definitely not allowed in my day.


  • That’s hilarious! I cant imagine having that much of a sense of humour while in labour.


  • hahaha love it!


  • What a champ! That’s one way of getting through the pains


  • Having a sense of humour during labor I’m sure kept her support people going too


  • You really have to wonder about some people. And then you have to wonder how something like this makes the news
