Congratulations are in order for newlyweds George Lucas and Mellody Hobson who welcomed a healthy baby girl into the world on Friday (Aug. 9). Media reports confirm that their little bundle of joy was delivered via surrogate.
Everest Hobson Lucas is the first biological child for the couple and joins Lucas’ three adopted children: 32-year-old Amanda, 25-year-old Katie and 20-year-old Jett.
Lucas, 69, and Hobson, 44, tied the knot in late June at his Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, Calif. after dating for more than seven years. This is the second marriage for the Star Wars creator and the first for the chairman of Dreamworks Animation.
Before making things official, Hobson discussed with Oprah Winfrey the secrets behind their longtime relationship.
"I think it works because we are extraordinarily open-minded people and we're open to what the universe brings us," she explained. "I think we didn't have preconceived ideas about what a partnership should be and so we allowed ourselves to discover something that was unexpected."
Best wishes to the family!
