Actress Elizabeth Banks and her husband, Max Handelman, now have ad a son, Felix, via a gestational surrogate.
"I have been very fortunate in life both professionally and personally," Banks, 37, wrote on her blog, announcing the birth Wednesday.
Banks explained, "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."
The "30 Rock" actress goes on to say there are now "two miracles" in her life. 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 sportswriter and producer Max Handelman met when they were in college in 1992 and were married in 2003.
