    George Lucas and wife Mellody Hobson welcomed a daughter named Everest Hobson Lucas Friday, Aug. 9, according to the Huffington Post.

    The little one, who was delivered via surrogate, is the first biological child for the couple and joins Lucas' adopted children 32-year-old Amanda, 25-year-old Katie and 20-year-old Jett.

    The Star Wars creator and the Ariel Investments president wed in late June at Lucas' Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, Calif.

    Prior to the pair's engagement, the 69-year-old filmmaker sold Lucasfilm to Disney for a whopping $4.05 billion in Oct. 2012.

    "It was 40 years of work," Lucas told E! News at the Ebony Power 100 Gala in November. "It has been my life, but I am ready to move on to bigger and better things."

    Including a newborn baby girl. Congrats to the happy couple!
