Back in January we offered our congratulations to Star Wars creator George Lucas and Mellody Hobson, his girlfriend of 7 years, when they got engaged and then in June we offered the couple when they got hitched. Today we offer our congrats again because George and Mellody are now the proud parents of a newborn baby daughter! That’s right, the couple welcomed the birth of their first child together on August 9 a little over one month after they got married. George has 3 adopted children already but this newborn daughter is his and Mellody’s first biological child … which was born from a surrogate … which means in under one year, the couple got engaged, were married and welcomed the birth of their first child. That’s how rich people do it, y’all.
The Force is strong with this one! The Huffington Post can announce exclusively that on Friday, August 9, “Star Wars” filmmaker George Lucas and his wife, Ariel Investments president Mellody Hobson, welcomed a daughter into the world. Everest Hobson Lucas is the first biological child for both parents, but she’s far from an only child. The newborn, who was delivered via surrogate, is a little sister to Lucas’ adopted children, Amanda, 32; Katie, 25; and Jett, 20. Lucas and Hobson were married on June 22 at Skywalker Ranch, in Marin County, California. Journalist Bill Moyers officiated the ceremony, and director Steven Spielberg toasted the groom. In addition to serving as president of Ariel Investments, Hobson, 44, is chairman of Dreamworks Animation and a financial contributor with CBS.
Wow. This is happy and very surprising news. I really love George and Mellody together as a couple … now that they have a newborn baby of their own, I love them even more. Let’s send the newly expanded family all of our lurve and congrats today. I’m not sure if we’ll ever get to see what little Everest looks like but I’m pretty certain that little girl is adorbs.
