Elizabeth Banks had a baby via surrogate!
30 Rock star Elizabeth Banks is a proud new mama thanks to a surrogate! The 37 year old actress took to her website and opened up about struggles she has had around starting a family:
“I have been very fortunate in life both professionally and personally. 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. 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.”
Doesn’t that just give you a huge case of the AWWWWWWWWWs!! Big congrats to Elizabeth and her husband Max. The pair met on her first day of college at University of Pennnsylvania in 1992 and have been married since July 2003.
