Actress Elizabeth Banks and her husband Max Handelman welcomed a baby boy via gestational surrogate.
Banks, 37, Tweeted the announcement of the birth of her new son, Felix, on Wednesday.
The 30 Rock star wrote on her website: “I have been very fortunate in life both professionally and personally.
“The one true hurdle I’ve faced in life is that I have a broken belly. After years of trying to get pregnant, exploring the range of fertility treatments, all unsuccessful, our journey led us to gestational surrogacy.”
“From that came two miracles,” she continues. “The first was meeting our carrier and her husband who were truly humbling in their decency and generosity. And the second miracle was the birth of our baby boy, Felix Handelman. Felix means ‘happy’ and ‘lucky’ in Latin. And true to his name, Felix is a very happy baby and a blessing on our life.”
Congrats to Banks and Handelman on their new baby!
