If you thought a new year meant we would be free from the viral influence of the Chewbacca mum, think again.

Giving birth is said to be the most beautiful day in a woman's life, what they don't tell you is that going into labour can be fun.

Katie Stricker Curtis gave birth, but with a HUGE twist.

She wore a Chewbacca mask and we got to see the whole thing via Facebook live.

On a hospital bed, Katie is seen holding her stomach while screaming out in pain.

Although her screams sounded even worse when translated into Shryllwook, the native language of Wookiees in Star Wars movies.

Katie shared the video on her page with the caption: "Just because I'm about to be a mom doesn't mean I have to grow up!

However, she has a long way to go if she is going to match the original Chewbacca mask owner, Candice Payne.

Candice was the woman that brought a smile to millions of faces when she live-streamed the grand unboxing of her Chewbacca mask.

She pulled on the face of the legendary Wookiee and immerdiately erupted into fits of laughter as the mask roared along.

Candice's infections laugh tickled the mood of millions across the internet, who couldn't help but laugh along with her and her video has now reached 164 million views.

Katie later gave birth to a healthy baby girl, Jayden, which she is "so in love with".
