George Lucas and Mellody Hobson get engaged

    George Lucas and Mellody Hobson are finally getting married after seven years of dating.

    The force was with him! reports that the 68-year-old Star Wars creator is settling down again. He popped the question to Melody, 43. Mellody is best known as the financial guru on "Good Morning America," but the Chicago business woman also heads up Ariel Investments LLC.

    This will be George’s second marriage and the first for Mellody.

    There’s no word on when George and Mellody will actually jump the broom, but we’ll be slightly disappointed if they don’t cut the cake with a light saber.

    After selling Lucasfilms Ltd. to Disney last year, George also made news recently for donating $4 billion (about the amount he made from the deal with Disney) to an educational foundation.

    “For 41 years, the majority of my time and money has been put into the company,” he said in a statement. “As I start a new chapter in my life, it is gratifying that I have the opportunity to devote more time and resources to philanthropy.”
