George Lucas, 69, and his wife Mellody Hobson welcomed their first biological daughter, Everest Hobson Lucas on August 9.
Baby Everest was born via surrogate, thrilling “Star Wars” fans with the news!
George, 69, is also father to three adult adopted children – Amanda, 32; Katie, 25; and Jett, 20.
George Lucas and Mellody have been together as a couple since 2006 but married in California just two months ago.
The couple welcomed the new addition to their family using a surrogate, with Lucas being 69 and Mellody already age 44.
Hobson, 44, is a financial contributor to CBS News and is also the chairman of Dreamworks Animation.
Lucas has retired from moviemaking, handing over the Star Wars franchise to Disney. A new Star Wars film is planned for summer 2015.
George has a huge following with all of the Star Wars fans. They took to Twitter in excitement over Lucas’ new arrival.
