This is truly such wonderful news!

Elizabeth Banks announced today that she and her husband, Max Handelman, welcomed their first son, named Felix Handelman, via gestational surrogate, today!

She wrote via Twitter:

What's greater than overjoyed? Megajoyed? Add humility, love, awe. Sprinkle w cute. Result: my new life as a mom. It's a boy!

And explained further via her blog:

I have been very fortunate in life both professionally and personally. 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. 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.

Thanks to all our friends, family, and fans for your support.

If you need me, I'll be changing dirty diapers and trying to get some sleep.

So touching!

We can't imagine how thrilled they must be - especially since it sounds as though they quite a few hurdles to overcome in order to bring this little guy into the world!

Congratulations, you guys! We're so happy for you!

    Never mind I should have read the article - I guess she used a surrogate - congratulations! That's exactly the kind of family a surrogate is for as well as adoption; people who love each other and will make great parents.

    1) She's way too cute for him.

    2) Where the F did they get Felix. No one's been named that in 75 years.

    Wow I'm surprised to learn she had issues getting pregnant, as two of the major characters she played end up pregnant (Kim on Scrubs and Avery on 30 Rock). That must've been tough for her but that's awesome she finally has her baby!

    Finally a celeb who used a surrogate for a real reason. I always liked her. Re: WatcherOne – And she was in Scrubs, 30 Rock, Zack and Miri make a Porno, 40 Year Old Virgin, etc etc. She's hilarious

    Re: Nicole Lons
    I hate when people say a kid will get picked on at school because of their name. I would never pick on someone because of their name and I do not think many other people would either. The only reason a kid would be bullied is because of people like you who thinks a different name is such a big deal. Please do not have children and teach them to think like you.

    Good for them and Congrats!

    Who the hell is Elizabeth Banks????



  13. 13

    she is very pretty but if she cannot get pregnant she was probably very promiscuous and got a disease that made her infertile. the upside is her body is not ruined, she is too hot to get stretch marks and saggy tiits. she is married to a jew



  14. 14

    IF YOU CANT HAVE A BABY YOU ARENT A REAL WOMAN. SHE PROBABLY WAS PROMISCUOUS AND SCREWED LOTS OF JEWS AND GOT A DISEASE THAT MADE HER INFERTILE

    Re: Modern Thinker – Yes, Because we all know that looks is the main and only thing you focus on when choosing to spend the rest of your life with someone. /sarcasm. I take it you're still single.?
