It’s another boy for Elizabeth Banks.

The actress, 38, and husband Max Handelman recently welcomed their second son, Magnus Mitchell Handelman, Banks announced on her website Wednesday. He joins big brother Felix, 20 months, at home.

“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,” the Hunger Games and Pitch Perfect star writes.

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

“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.”

“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,” Banks jokes. “Wish me luck.”

The actress, who also had a recurring role on 30 Rock, has been open about her fertility struggle. “It was a womb issue for me. Embryos wouldn’t implant,” she explained earlier this year.

Meet Tennessee James Toth!

Reese Witherspoon gave us a peek at her 6-week-old son while out and about in California on Wednesday.

The actress’s third child — her first with husband Jim Toth — arrived Sept. 27 in Santa Monica, her rep told PEOPLE exclusively at the time.

Although Witherspoon, 36, has stepped out solo since the arrival of her baby boy, this is the first time she’s been spotted with her new son.

“Everyone is bonding with the baby,” a source tells PEOPLE of the relationship Witherspoon’s elder children — Deacon, 9, and Ava, 13 — have with their new little brother. “And Jim has had a lighter workload and has been spending a lot of time at home with the baby as well.”

Adds a Witherspoon pal: “She’s so content. Tennessee is a great little guy and he’s fitting right into their family. Jim’s been incredibly supportive, pitching in with Ava and Deacon and generally just being someone for Reese to lean on. They’re all very happy.”

Baby on the Way for Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell

Life is imitating art for Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell.

The Parenthood actor and House of Lies actress are expecting their first child in late spring, their rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“They’re so excited — they’re both ecstatic. They can’t wait to become parents,” a close friend of the couple tells PEOPLE.

“Kristen had a little bit of morning sickness early on but she just started shooting the second season of House of Lies and is feeling great now.”

Bell, 32, and Shepard, 37, started dating in 2007 and have been engaged for nearly three years.

While promoting their film Hit and Run this summer, the couple said children were definitely in their future and would likely come before a wedding, since they don’t plan to marry until same-sex marriage is legal in their home state of California.

“We wouldn’t want to invite all of our friends who don’t have that right to celebrate us, who have that right. We just don’t feel right about that,” Shepard said on The View in July. Added Bell: “Can you think about how rude that would feel?”

Having kids before marriage, Bell told Larry King in August, “doesn’t really bother us.”

Kerri Walsh Jennings Expecting Third Child

She’s just won her third Olympic gold medal … and now Kerri Walsh Jennings will have a third child as well.

The beach volleyball superstar, 34, and her husband Casey Jennings will welcome baby number three in April, they announced Monday on Today.

“When I was throwing my body around fearlessly and going for gold for our country, I was pregnant,” Walsh Jennings jokes. “Today I’m 11 weeks pregnant.”

Due April 9, the new arrival will join big brothers Sundance, 2, and Joseph, 3.

The couple say they started trying for a baby about a month before the London Games, assuming it would take some time to conceive. Little did Walsh Jennings know, she’d be playing the gold medal match with partner Misty May-Treanor at five weeks along.

“I thought it could have been the stress of the Games and travel throws your schedule off,” she explains. “At some point, you’re late and then you start feeling something. And I definitely started feeling something in London.”

Unlike her pregnancies with her sons, Walsh Jennings is experiencing morning sickness this time around.

“This little one is kicking my butt! The first two were pretty easy, but with this one, I’m sick every day,” she admits. “I’ve got some awesome acne. I just feel different.”
