Felix Handelman: Elizabeth Banks' Newborn Son!

Elizabeth Banks is a mom!!

The 37-year-old actress and her husband, Max Handelman, welcomed Felix, a son, into their family via a surrogate, she announced today on her blog.

“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: we make a ‘baby cake’ and bake it in another woman’s ‘oven,’ Elizabeth explained. “From that came two miracles. 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 means “happy” and “lucky” in Latin, and Elizabeth says he definitely fits his name!

Congratulations to the happy couple!!
