Elizabeth Banks Baby

30 ROCK A BYE BABY ~ Elizabeth Banks and her husband Max Handelman have welcomed son Felix via gestational surrogate, Banks Tweeted Wednesday and followed up with an announcement via her blog.

“I have been very fortunate in life both professionally and personally,” Banks wrote

“I have had untold number of opportunities to work with inspiring people, on great projects as an actress, and I have had a fantastic long term relationship of nearly 20 years with my now husband, Max. 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,” 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.”

“We have maintained a great deal of privacy throughout this process, and hope to continue to honor Felix’s privacy going forward,” Banks writes. “Thanks to all our friends, family, and fans for your support.”

In closing, “If you need me, I’ll be changing dirty diapers and trying to get some sleep.”

Banks and Handelman — whom she met on her first day of college in 1992 — wed in July 2003.
