August 12, 2013 – The Stars Wars universe welcomed its newest youngling on Friday, August 9, 2013: EVEREST HOBSON was born to Mellody Hobson, wife of George Lucas. This is the first biological child for both parents.
Their daughter, who was delivered via surrogate, joins Lucas’ adopted children: Amanda (32 years old), Katie (25) and Jett (20). In fact, you may remember that Jett (born 1993) had cameo appearances in both “Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones” (2002) and “Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith” (2005) as a young Jedi Padawan named Zett Jukassa.
Similarly, his sister, Katie Lucas (pictured below), had cameos in all three films of the prequels trilogy: She portrayed Amee (though credited as Jenna Green) in “Phantom Menace” (1999). She also played Lunae Minx in “Attack of the Clones” (2002); and Chi Eekway Papanoida in “Revenge of the Sith” (2005).
Lucas and Hobson were married at Skywalker Ranch, in Marin County, California, on June 22, 2013. Hobson, 44, is chairperson of DreamWorks Animation, president of Ariel Investments and a financial contributor to CBS.
Congratulations and best wishes to the expanded Lucas family!
