Elizabeth Banks and husband Max Handelman welcomed a baby boy to the world via gestational surrogate.
Banks confirmed the news via her personal blog “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: we make a ‘baby cake’ and bake it in another woman’s ‘oven.’ 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 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.”
Banks and Handelman, both 37, met on the first day of college in 1992 and were married in July 5, 2003 after dating for more than 10 years.
