Actress Elizabeth Banks and her husband, Max Handelman, welcomed their second son to the family. With a tweet and a post Banks announced to the world that ‘It’s A Boy’.

All indications are that Magnus Mitchell Handelman is healthy and happy and with the family.

The announcement might come as a shock to some who can’t quite remember Banks being pregnant. Well don’t worry, you weren’t mistaken. Banks explains on a post on her website:

“Magnus was born via gestational surrogate. This experience has exceeded all expectations, taught us a great deal about generosity and gratitude, and established a relationship that will last a lifetime. I am also so very thankful to our family and friends for their support throughout this process, as well as the Center for Surrogate Parenting for helping make all this possible.”

Banks’ oldest son Felix was also born using a surrogate. Banks is currently filming the second movie from ‘The Hunger Games’ series, but will of course be involved with her two young sons.

“I now turn my attention to managing two boys under two. For which I am thankful. And all their poop. For which I am less thankful.”

Congratulations to Banks and her husband on their new addition to the family.
