“How I Met Your Mother” Set to Reveal the Names of Ted’s Kids

In a previous episode, central “How I Met Your Mother” character Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) revealed that he hopes to name his kids Luke and Leia after the iconic “Star Wars” characters.

On Monday’s “How I Met Your Mother,” viewers will learn whether Future Ted got his wish. The episode will finally reveal the names of his children (played by Lyndsy Fonseca and David Henrie).

“You’re going to learn the kids names next week in ‘Unpause,’” said co-creator Craig Thomas in an interview with press. “Someone’s going to get mad at me [for saying] that.”

Including Monday’s episode, nine episodes remain in the final season of “How I Met Your Mother.” “Last Forever, Parts 1 & 2,” the hourlong finale, airs on March 31.
