George Lucas Is a New Dad at 69! May the Force Be with Him!


40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards - ArrivalsBig congratulations are in order to the one and only George Lucas! The father of Star Wars and Indiana Jones is now a father to a brand new baby girl. Lucas and his wife Mellody Hobson welcomed the birth of their daughter Everest Hobson Lucas via a surrogate on August 9th.

This is the first biological child for Lucas; he has three children —  Amanda, 32; Katie, 25; and Jett, 20 —  via adoption from his previous marriage. Lucas wed Mellody Hobson in June of this year at a star-studded wedding at his Skywalker Ranch.

One notable thing about this announcement is that George Lucas is now 69 years old. Can you imagine being a new parent at that ripe age? We have one thing to say: May the force be with him! I’m decades younger than him and even I have a hard time keeping up with the kids. But I am confident that George can do it. After all, he has a youthful exuberance, a total smarty-pants wife, and the money to hire all the help they need. One thing’s for sure, Everest Hobson Lucas is one lucky little girl. She’ll be on cloud nine with her dad if she ever goes through a Princess Leia stage!

Congrats again to George and Mellody!
