A Florida couple welcomed their baby with a photoshoot from a galaxy, far, far away. This little Jedi has captured the attention of all of us!

An Orlando couple decided that their new baby boy was so out of this world that they had a photoshoot for him that was from a galaxy far, far away! It began when Shawn and Ashley Vanderlaan were building the nursery for their little one, Rhett. “It started with picking ‘Star Wars’ for his nursery theme,” Shawn said. “Ashley found the baby Yoda costume and figured we would use it for a photoshoot.

That’s how this idea started. It then took a big turn!

Shawn then approached his friend Shane, who has a loft filled with Star Wars stuff, and asked him if they could use it. Not only did Shane agree, he took it a light-year sized step further. Shane dressed up as The Mandalorian for the photoshoot! “I didn’t expect him to dress up but he offered and it turned out awesome,” Shawn added. “It just all came together.

Photographer Rigo Delgado captured all the Mandalorian-themed magic with little baby Rhett playing an adorable Grogu!

Shane wears his Mandalorian costume visiting children’s hospitals, conventions, birthday parties. and hopes to hit a few Halloween pub crawls. The next time you see Mando in Florida, it might be Shane under the helmet.

As for baby Rhett, the Florida couple can already see that The Force is strong in their little one!
