From Us:

After a six-year courtship, George Lucas and Mellody Hobson are engaged!

The couple shared their happy news with the world Jan. 3. The acclaimed Star Wars director, 68, and the DreamWorks Animation chair, 43, first laid eyes on one another at a business conference.

“How else would a financial person and movie person ever be at the same place at the same time?” Lucas said during an interview on Oprah’s Next Chapter in January 2012.

According to Hobson, a Princeton University graduate who is also the head of a Chicago-based investment management firm, their relationship works because they are both “extraordinarily open-minded people, and we are open to what the universe brings us.”

She added, “We didn’t have preconceived ideas about what a partner should be, and so we allowed ourselves to discover something that was unexpected.
