Truth rating: 10

By Michael Lewittes


Elizabeth Banks and her husband Max Handelman are parents again!

The couple, who welcomed a son named Felix via a surrogate in 2011, have had a second boy named Magnus.

Banks, who’s had fertility issues and again used surrogacy, announced the news on her website on Wednesday.

She wrote, “As 2012 winds down and Thanksgiving approaches, I have much for which to be thankful – personal, professional, and Presidential.”

“However, nothing can match the joy and excitement my husband and I felt when we recently welcomed our second baby boy, Magnus Mitchell Handelman,” added Banks.

With two little boys, The Hunger Games actress said she’s expecting “a decade or more of close hand to hand combat.”

After thanking her “family and friends for their support throughout this process, as well as the Center for Surrogate Parenting for helping make all this possible,” Bank continued, “I now turn my attention to managing two boys under two.”

“Wish me luck,” she concluded.
