Elizabeth Banks

"The Hunger Games" star Elizabeth Banks, 38, says she spent years trying to get pregnant and have a baby with husband Max Handelman, but her attempts were unsuccessful. “Our journey led us to gestational surrogacy: we make a ‘baby cake’ and bake it in another woman's ‘oven,’” she wrote on her blog in March 2011 when she announced the arrival of her son. “From that came two miracles. 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 is now 17 months.
