The actress and her husband welcomed their miracle baby, Felix, via a gestational carrier. Wonderful news!

After struggling with infertility for years, 30 Rock star Elizabeth Banks and her husband Max Handelman finally have the baby they’ve always dreamed of! The actress, 37, announced the birth of her son Felix, via a surrogate, on her website today, March 30. Congrats!

“I have been very fortunate in life both professionally and personally,” Elizabeth writes on her Web site. “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,” she continues. “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 are thrilled for Elizabeth and Max and can’t wait to catch a glimpse of baby Felix!
