Elizabeth Banks is now a mommy times two!

The Hunger Games star took to her website today to break the exciting news that she and husband Max Handelman are now the proud parents of a son named Magnus. He joins older brother Felix, who arrived in March 2011.

"Like Felix, Magnus was born via gestational surrogate," Banks wrote. "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 added, "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. Wish me luck."

Good luck, Elizabeth. And congrats to the whole family!
