Director George Lucas, 69, may not be heading Lucasfilm Ltd. anymore, but he’s definitely still going to have his hands full with a slightly different endeavor. He and his younger wife, 44-year-old Mellody Hobson, are the proud new parents of a baby girl, Everest Hobson Lucas, who was born via surrogate on August 9, 2013. This is Hobson’s first child, but Lucas already has three kids aged 32, 25, and 20. However, all of Lucas’ kids were adopted—Everest is the celebrity couple’s first biological child.

Lucas and Hobson tied the knot in June 2013 after seven years of dating.

Having kids is always a debatable issue when it comes to younger women who are married to older men. Money, of course, will be no issue—Lucas is estimated to have a net worth that’s upwards of $7.0 billion. But at almost 70, you can’t help but wonder how much of a role Lucas will really get to play in his new child’s upbringing.


What do you think: Is 70 too old to be having kids, or is age irrelevant?
