'Hunger Games' Hunks!
Alexander Ludwig dishes about being a Career tribute.
It’s a boy! Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks is officially a mommy for the second time.

The actress announced on her website today that she welcomed a second son, Magnus Mitchell Handleman, via gestational surrogate.

“This experience has exceeded all expectations, taught us a great deal about generosity and gratitude,” Banks wrote, “and established a relationship that will last a lifetime.”

Banks welcomed her first son, Felix, in May of 2011 via surrogate as well. Banks shared how overjoyed she was with her first child after years and years of trying to get pregnant.

“The one true hurdle I’ve faced in life is that I have a broken belly,” Banks shared.

“After years of exploring the range of fertility treatments, all unsuccessful, our journal led us to gestational surrogacy.”

Banks is currently filming the second installment of The Hunger Games franchise, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which is slated to air in 2013.
