They probably can afford day care.



Erstwhile Star Wars mastermind George Lucas is a father again, after he and his wife Mellody Hobson welcomed a baby girl via gestational surrogate on Friday. It's not like he has to worry about Lucasfilm anymore.

Their daughter Everest Hobson Lucas makes this one the first biological child for Lucas, 69, and Hobson, the 44-year-old president of Ariel Investments. The Huffington Post confirmed the news, but didn't have many further details, other than remind us they were married on June 22.

Lucas has three adopted kids -- Amanda, 32; Katie, 25; and Jett, 20 -- but at least now he won't be able to ruin Star Wars yet again for another generation. Say it with us now: May the fourth be with you, George!
