Massachusetts Parents Name Baby Boy After ‘Star Wars'

Ryker Jedi Gracie was delivered at Winchester Hospital

A baby boy born in Massachusetts on Thursday has been named after "Star Wars." 

Jim and Denise Gracie of Woburn named their son Ryker Jedi. 

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" was released on the same day. 

Jim Gracie says he's been a fan of the "Star Wars" franchise for as long as he can remember. They plan to see the new film in the coming weeks. 

Ryker was delivered at Winchester Hospital. 

Instead of "congratulating" the couple, hospital staff has been saying "May the force be with you."
