George Lucas has finally popped the question to his girlfriend of seven years Mellody Hobson.
Lucas’ 31-year-old daughter Amanda took to Twitter to share the happy news of the engagement!
Amanda posted an article about the engagement and tweeted, “George Lucas, Mellody Hobson Engaged: ‘Star Wars’ Director, Businesswoman Set To Marry ….Congratulations Dad & Mellody!:) (sic).”
This will be the first trip down for Mellody, the president of Chicago-based investment management firm Ariel Investments LLC, and the second marriage for Lucas.
George Lucas was previously married to Marica Lucas from 1969 to 1983. They had three children together – Amanda, 31, Katie, 26, and Jett, 19.
An insider revealed of Lucas’ engagement, “It happened just recently and they told close friends of their engagement while vacationing in St. Barts. The wedding is being planned for late spring and it’s a good guess it will be in either the San Francisco area [Lucas’ home base] or Chicago [Hobson’s home base]”.
George Lucas previously talked about his relationship with Mellody, stating, “I was attracted to her because she’s really, really smart . . . If you’re more beautiful than I am and smarter than I am and you’ll put up with me, that’s all it takes. I’m there.”
Congrats To George and Mellody!
