Congratulations to actress Elizabeth Banks, and her husband of 7 years, Max Handelman. The 37-year-old actress announced on her blog yesterday that they had a little boy via surrogate.
Elizabeth wrote on her blog to make the big announcement.
“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 has been working on the television series ’30 Rock,’ and is thrilled with this new chapter.
“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.”
We are so happy for her and her new journey!
