Elizabeth Banks has welcomed a second son into her life. She revealed on her website this morning (Nov. 14), that Magnus Mitchell was born via a gestational surrogate. Banks and her husband Max Handelman already have one son, Felix, who was also born via surrogate back in March of 2011.

"Like Felix, Magnus was born via gestational surrogate," Banks said. "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."
