Candace Payne—also known as Chewbacca Mom—took the internet by storm last year after unboxing and testing out a Chewbacca mask, and that mask has reemerged in time for a major life event.

On Jan. 2, Katie Stricker Curtis shared a video on Facebook of herself wearing the Chewbacca mask and making it roar while she was in a hospital bed. According to Curtis, the video was filmed while she was in labor, and she eventually gave birth to a baby boy named Jayden.

“Just because I’m about to be a mom doesn’t mean I have to grow up!” she wrote along with a message about not taking life too seriously.

We know one Wookiee who would approve.
