Elizabeth Banks Welcomes Baby #2!


Actress Elizabeth Banks and her husband Max Handelman welcome another baby boy!

Elizabeth announced on her website that she is a mom for the second time. Magnus Mitchell Handelman has joined the ranks of the family, via gestational surrogate, just as his big brother Felix did 20 months ago.

She writes: “As 2012 winds down and Thanksgiving approaches, I have much for which to be thankful – personal, professional, and Presidential. However, nothing can match the joy and excitement my husband and I felt when we recently welcomed our second baby boy, Magnus Mitchell Handelman.”

The Hunger Games actress continued, “Like Felix, Magnus was born via gestational surrogate. This experience has exceeded all expectations, taught us a great deal about generosity and gratitude, and established a relationship that will last a lifetime. I am also so very thankful to our family and friends for their support throughout this process, as well as the Center for Surrogate Parenting for helping make all this possible. I now turn my attention to managing two boys under two. For which I am thankful. And all their poop. For which I am less thankful. Wish me luck.”
