George Lucas, 69, and his
new wifeof almost two months, Mellody Hobson, 44, welcomed a baby daughter named Everest Hobson Lucas via surrogate
on Friday, August 9, according to The Huffington Post.
The new addition is Lucas’ fourth child, and Hobson’s first.
Hobson, a Chicago native, heads Chicago-based investment management firm Ariel Investments in addition to her roles as DreamWorks animation chair and financial contributor at CBS.
Lucas sold his production company, Lucasfilm Ltd., to the Walt Disney Company for $US4.05 billion in October 2012.
“It was 40 years of work,” Lucas said of the “Star Wars” franchise at the Ebony Power 100 Gala in November. “It has been my life, but I am ready to move on to bigger and better things.”
Cue baby Everest.
Just last week, Jimmy Fallon also announced that he and his wife welcomed a daughter via surrogate.
