This is new mom Katie Curtis.
After dying laughing at last year's Chewbacca mom video, Katie Curtis decided to wear the same mask while she went into labor. Instead of laughs, the mask's Chewbacca voice is used to more accurately depict the pain of childbirth.
"Just because I'm about to be a mom doesn't mean I have to grow up!" 32-year-old Curtis wrote on her video that was originally posted to Facebook. Then she followed it up with some VERY grown up information on how to license her whimsical video.
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!

Of course, it makes sense to get on that media train, as Curtis' Chewbacca birth instantly went viral. Since being posted January 2nd, the video has already been viewed over 100,000 times and gained hundreds of comments from other inspired Chewbacca mom wannabes.
So did Katie Curtis just exchange her baby's first 15 minutes of life to get 15 minutes of fame? After being accused of this in the comments section, Curtis swears that wasn't her plan. Curtis says she accidentally posted this, and that it was originally intended to be texted to her brother to make him laugh.
you know what's funny is if I was trying to copy someone wouldn't you think I would do a video longer than 10 seconds lol it was a video text meant for my brother to make him laugh which it clearly did lol and its hilarious
And then a few comments further down she writes:
People have no clue. I def have better things to do than try to go viral on the internet. I have other connections If I wanted to have some spotlight but this is kinda cool lol
Whether or not it was intentional, once the Chewbacca glory rained down on Katie Curtis, she definitely bathed in it.
