Engaged to Mellody Hobson, he is.
Legendary director George Lucas announced today that he’s engaged to his long-time girlfriend, who is the president of a Chicago-based investment firm and someone who has accompanied Lucas on red carpets around the world for years.
Hobson often appears on Good Morning America as a financial analyst.
This will mark the second marriage for the Star Wars creator and after selling Lucasfilm to Disney for a cool $4 billion, let’s just hope he got Hobson one heck of a ring.
Or at least prime seats to the Star Wars Episode 7 premiere.

We’re guessing this is not the merry holiday season Suzy Favor Hamilton had hoped for.
A day after it came to light that the three-time Olympian had been living the secret life of an escort in Las Vegas, Hamilton lost her affiliation with Disney.
The middle-distance runner will no longer speak – as she did last August and as she had been scheduled to do in the near future – at the Disneyland Half Marathon.
A Disney rep tells E! News that Hamilton “was only an invited guest and she was never paid or acting as a spokesperson for Disney.”
Therefore, there were no officialMore >
The family feud over Ariel Winter has reached a detente, at least temporarily.
“It looks like the court is going to order therapy and counseling to help keep us together as a family,” Ariel’s older brother Jimmy Workman told reporters.
“Everything’s holding off and everyone’s going to counseling.”
Lawyers for Ariel’s mother, Chris Workman, her older daughter Shanelle, 34, as well as the star, hammered out an agreement this afternoon.
That deal will allow Ariel to remain in the care of her sister.
Pending a new hearing in March, Judge Michael Levanas said in open court: “IMore >

Miley Cyrus was a guest on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this morning and while the two discussed many aspects of the singer’s life, one exchange stood above the rest.
The 19-year old, who is engaged to Liam Hemsworth of course, said it’s “pretty blatant” that the Jonas Brothers’ new track (“Wedding Bells”) was written with her in mind.Jonas Brothers – “Wedding Bells”
“I don’t know anyone else who is getting married,” Miley said in reference to a single whose lyrics mention wanting to “try one last time” with an ex-love and not wanting to “hear the wedding bells chime.”

Selena Gomez gets to have sex with Justin Bieber whenever she wants to.
So there’s really not a lot this young superstar needs for her birthday. On life in general, for that matter.

It’s been another extremely successful year for the artist, who left music behind a bit and starred in three movies. She plans on going off on a new tour and recording a new album in the near future.
In the meantime, she’ll settle for helicopter dates with her very attractive boyfriend.

Demi Lovato is featured on the cover of the latest Self, delving into issues both personal and professional with the magazine in one of the singer’s more revealing interviews.
Why did she cut herself back in the day? “There were times I felt so anxious, almost like I was crawling out of my skin – that if I didn’t do something physical to match the way I felt inside, I would explode… I cut myself to take my mind off that. I just didn’t care what happened. I had no fear.”
How is she recovering? “I make time for myself and meditate. I’ve spent the past two years getting over an eatingMore >

Selena Gomez has taken a break from luxurious dates with adorable superstars to talk about her professional future – and she wants it to include music.
Speaking to E! News at a press preview of Hotel Transylvania – one of three movies Selena filmed this year – the 19-year old said she misses recording and hopes to get started on a new record soon.
“I want to be able to write about things I’ve never talked about before and tell a story with this album because I’ve never actually had time to go in and do that. I’ve never worked on a song for more than two days,” Gomez said.
So does thisMore >
Demi Lovato is currently judging X Factor auditions and will kick off a summer tour on June 12 in Del Mar, California. In other words: she’s very busy these days.
But give the singer about a decade and she’ll be ready to settle down.
“I want to be married with kids in 10 years,” Lovato tells the latest issue of Cosmopolitan, which is apparently all about sex and nudity for a change.
With what kind of man will Lovato end up? She can’t say for certain, of course, but she does dish on one deal breaker:’

The Avengers will officially assemble again.
Disney announced the obvious today: following a record-shattering opening weekend, the superhero blockbuster will come out with a sequel at an undetermined date in the future.
In related, even less obvious news, Kim Kardashian likes money.
“The Avengers isn’t just a film,” said Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger to CNBC. “It’s a franchise from our perspective. Obviously, it was helped a lot by the success of the Iron Man movies and of Thor and Captain America. From The Avengers we get a chance to make Thor 2 and Captain America 2 and Iron Man 3… So More >
An attempt at a kind gesture turned very scary for Demi Lovato in Paraguay last night, as the singer was forced to leave the stage and put a halt to her concert when fans leaped up and tried to embrace her.
The 19-year old initially tried to give fans a better seat, only for attendees to get carried away and actually jump on stage. Security intervened. Demi walked away. Order was restored and she eventually returned to finish the set.
But it’s easy to imagine just how frightening it can be to see an influx of hyper strangers heading your way. Watch it all unfold now:More >
A couple weeks ago on Twitter, Demi Lovato bared her true face.
Now, in the pages of British magazine Fabulous, the singer is baring her soul.
In one of her more honest interviews to date, the 19-year old goes into detail about her pre-rehab drug use, telling the publication:
“I was depressed. I would come offstage in front of 18,000 people and suddenly be alone in a hotel room. I’d come crashing down and would try to find a way to re-create that feeling, to stay ‘up.’”
And you might be shocked to learn who fueled Demi’s habit.
