The actress announced the exciting news on her website Wednesday writing,

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.

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. 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.

Wish me luck.

During an interview with LuckyMag earlier this year she opened up about using a surrogate to have her first son.

“It was a womb issue for me. Embryos wouldn’t implant,” she says. “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’s like an auntie.”

We wish her luck and can’t wait to meet Magnus!
