Elizabeth Banks welcomes second son

Posted on

The odds were in her favor:  Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks and husband Max Handelman recently welcomed their second son, according to a post on Banks’ website.

As 2012 winds down and Thanksgiving approaches, I have much for which to be thankful – personal, professional, and Presidential,” she wrote. “However, nothing can match the joy and excitement my husband and I felt when we recently welcomed our second baby boy, Magnus Mitchell Handelman. Magnus joins older brother Felix, thus commencing a decade or more of close hand to hand combat.

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.

Her son Felix is 20 months old.
