Actress Elizabeth Banks welcomes her second son. In a press release Banks and her husband Max Handelman have announced the arrival of their second child Magnus Handelman.
The couple has an older son, Felix Handelman in March 2011, and now it is another baby boy again. Incidentally, both her children are born through surrogacy.
According to the couple, the birth of their children has been a unique and life changing experience for them. They feel that they have learnt a lot about generosity and feel very grateful to all their friends and family, who helped them through this period. They also mentioned the centre for surrogate parenting in making it possible for them to establish this wonderful relationship with their children.
Elizabeth defines surrogacy as “It’s essentially a test-tube baby — it’s just that the test tube is another woman. That you can grow a baby outside of yourself! It’s just amazing!” In the interview post the delivery of Magnus, this ‘Hunger Games’ star has revealed that for now all her attention will be focused on taking care of her two boys. She asks for best wishes from all her fans and well wishers in this endeavor.
Congratulations and all the very best of parenthood to Elizabeth and Max.
