The Force is SO strong with this baby playing with a lightsaber for the first time

She might be having the best time anyone has had, ever.

It’s not often you get to witness the moment someone realises the Force is strong with them – especially one so young – which is what makes this picture of Zelda Smarsh so special.

The seven-month-old was recently treated to a spot of entertainment from her brother Christopher, six, before she went to bed.

And it’s never been clearer that one day her talents will be needed by the Resistance.

She’s almost having *too* much fun – and is clearly a natural with a lightsaber in her hand.

Zelda can get “slap happy” when she’s tired, according to mum Dianna, and she ended up recreating a Star Wars scene because Christopher wanted to do something to distract her before bed.

“As soon as he gave her the lightsaber and turned it on she lit up and was amazed. Shortly after she started getting a feel for it and swinging it about and chasing my son around our dining room,” Dianna said.

“Needless to say it’s one of her favourite things to play with now.”

The Force is definitely strong with that one.
