"However, nothing can match the joy and excitement my husband and I felt when we recently welcomed our second baby boy, Magnus Mitchell Handelman. Magnus joins older brother Felix, thus commencing a decade or more of close hand-to-hand combat." "Like Felix, Magnus was born via gestational surrogate," the actress continues. (Felix, 20 months, was born in March 2011.) "This experience has exceeded all expectations, taught us a great deal about generosity and gratitude, and established a relationship that will last a lifetime." Now, "I . . . turn my attention to managing two boys under two," Banks says. "For which I am thankful. And all their poop. For which I am less thankful. Wish me luck."
