The Pitch Perfect and Hunger Games actress welcomed baby #2, son Magnus Mitchell via gestational surrogate with husband Max Handelman!

Elizabeth announced the news  on her website today:

"As 2012 winds down and Thanksgiving approaches, I have much for which to be thankful - personal, professional, and Presidential. However, nothing can match the joy and excitement my husband and I felt when we recently welcomed our second baby boy, Magnus Mitchell Handelman.

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 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."

Magnus joins older brother Felix, who was born in March 2011, also via gestational surrogate. Elizabeth and Max have been married since 2003.

Congrats to the happy couple!
