Star Wars: Twins Born on "Star Wars Day" Named After Luke and Leia

"Star Wars" fans name twins born on "Star Wars Day" Luke and Leia.

The force will be with these kids. Always. When Kendall and Ross Robbins, fans of the movies, had twins born on May 4, 2018, they had to name them after the most famous twins in the "Star Wars" universe. They named the fraternal twins Kai Leia and Rowan Luke. The middle names are a reference to Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

Kai Leia and Rowan Luke were born at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah via induced labor and the hospital posted it on Instagram. "The force was strong for these two fresh faces yesterday on #MaytheFourthDay," the hospital said. "Kai Leia and Rowan Luke were born weighing 5lb 4oz on 5/4/18 and 5lb 9oz, respectively. Mom & Dad, Kendall & Ross, are huge #StarWars fans. Mom & Dad couldn’t be more excited for these two adorable babies and their perfect timing coming into this world."

After the news was shared with Mark Hamill he kindly sent his congratulations saying "I feel so honored by Kendall & Ross Robbins for choosing Luke & Leia as their babies' middle names! They are both beautiful & I'm so glad you didn't choose Greedo & Salacious."

"When we found out we were having a boy and a girl, we knew that being born May the 4th, they had to be Luke and Leia. At least for their middle names," Kendall Robbins, the mother of the twins, told KSTU.

Ross Robbins, the father, was unsurprisingly on board. "As soon as we knew that there was a chance they were May the 4th babies, it was like, all right: If they are born on May the 4th, that’s happening," he said.

The couple brought along Star Wars DVDs. A few hours after the birth the family watched their first film together. Kai Leia and Rowan Luke already have a "Star Wars" themed nursery at home.

If you're looking for baby gifts for them may I suggest the ones below:

"Star Wars Day" is the name given to an unofficial holiday among "Star Wars" fans. It's a pun based on the phrase "May the Force [or Fourth] be with you".

These are truly dedicated fans and it's awesome that they can share their love with the next generation.

How do you feel about the baby news?
