Chewbacca Mom Candace Payne Gives Interview on 'GMA'

Candace Payne, the woman affectionately known as “Chewbacca Mom” thanks to her viral video, makes an appearance on Good Morning America on Monday (May 23) in New York City.

During the interview, Candace said that she found the mask while at Kohl’s to buy yoga pants.

“I honestly wasn’t there for the mask,” Candace said. “I was there for myself for some yoga pants because I’m trying to work out more. And it’s not really going that well, but I ended up going to the toy section because I got discouraged about the yoga pants and I thought, ‘Maybe not today. But I can get a toy for my kids.’ And I walk through the toy section and I accidentally bump my shoulder into this box. And I had seen this before, but I didn’t realize it made sound until that moment. It accidentally started making the growl, and I went, ‘I need to get that. Like, I don’t think my kids need that, I think I need that.’”

Candace also talked about the best part about becoming a viral sensation.

“The best part of all of this is being able to share joy with people, hear stories of people coming out of depression,” she said. “I had one lady message me and tell me she has an autistic daughter that hadn’t laughed in two months, and she said every time she showed her the video she laughed and laughed. And from one mama’s heart to another mama, to see a child laugh that you haven’t’ seen laugh, those are the stories I will take with me every day.”
