George Lucas and Mellody Hobson welcome baby Everest
George Lucas and his wife Mellody Hobson welcomed their first biological child together on Aug. 9. The daughter, Everest Hobson Lucas, was born via surrogate.
Huffington Post broke the happy news. Everest isn't Lucas' first child. He also is father to three adopted children: Amanda, 32; Katie, 25; and Jett, 20. Considering Lucas and Hobson married on June 22, this birth was clearly planned beforehand.
Lucas will have plenty of time to spend with his newborn as he passed the reins of Lucasfilm over to Kathleen Kennedy. Though "Star Wars: Episode VII" is in the works, it is J.J. Abrams who is directing the flick.
