Hollywood actress Elizabeth Banks has revealed how the woman who was the surrogate for her son Felix is still very much a part of their lives. Elizabeth admitted that she was frustrated that she was unable to get pregnant herself but could not have asked for a better surrogate. Elizabeth Banks and her husband Max Handelman welcomed their first child back in March 2011.
Banks explained, "It was a womb issue for me. The embryos wouldn't implant," Banks explained of her fertility problems. It's a big leap, inviting this person into your life to do this amazing, important thing for you. And it's hard losing that kind of control. But our surrogate is so extraordinary, and she's still in our lives. She like an auntie."
She added, "My plan is that when Felix is 15, we'll go skydiving together. I mean, the guy is fierce and fearless, and I'm hoping he stays that way. Because I want to be that mum. The one who takes her kid skydiving." Elizabeth Banks can next be seen on the big screen, when she stars alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson in The Hunger Games, which is set to be released on March 23.
