30 Rock star Elizabeth Banks is a new mom!
The 37-year-old actress and husband Max Handelman have welcomed son Felix via gestational surrogate, Banks Tweeted today (March 30).
“I have been very fortunate in life both professionally and personally,” the proud mama wrote on her Web site.
“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.”
She continued to share, “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 – who met on her first day of college in 1992 – were married in July 2003.
