Need Some 'Star Wars' News? Well, George Lucas Had a Baby

In a galaxy far far away (otherwise known as California), the most important baby in the Star Wars universe was born. No, not C-3PO and R2-D2's love child from your fan fiction. (As much as we'd prefer to see an entire movie based on that child more than we'd want to watch Attack of the Clones again.) Star Wars director George Lucas welcomed his first child with wife Mellody Hobson Lucas. 

According to The Huffington Post, Everest Hobson Lucas was born Aug. 9 via surrogate. The baby joins Lucas' three adopted children, 32-year-old Amanda, 25-year-old Katie, and 20-year-old Jett. 

This is the second time this summer that Lucas has made headlines for his personal life. The creator of the beloved (and often maligned) franchise married Mellody, an Ariel Investments president, in late June at Lucas' Skywalker Ranch in Marin County, Calif. And Lucas' Star Wars universe will no doubt continue to make headlines, with J.J. Abrams on board to direct Star Wars Episode VII. Too bad fans of the franchise weren't treated to any news of the new film at this weekend's D23 convention. (Perhaps this news will satiate you? No?)

Now we're left only to wonder: How many of these does the Lucas couple have featured on their baby registry?
