Many celebrities have turned to surrogates to begin and expand their families. Most recently, filmmaker and “Star Wars” visionary George Lucas and his wife Mellody Hobson welcomed a girl, born last week.
Everest Hobson Lucas is the first biological child for both Lucas and Hobson. The two wed on June 22 at Skywalker Ranch in Marin County. The baby was carried to term via gestational surrogate.
Sixty-nine-year-old Lucas has three children via adoption: Amanda, 32, from a previous marriage to Marcia Griffin, and Katie, 25, and Jett, 20, whom Lucas adopted on his own.
Forty-four-year-old met Lucas back in 2006 at a business conference. She has held the position of president of Ariel Investments and is chairman of Dreamworks Animation and a financial contributor with CBS.
