Felix Handelman is the firstborn of movie star Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman. His name signifies lucky in Latin.
Felix was born via surrogacy. And though Elizabeth was judged for that, she had the reasons to welcome a child in such a way. Suffering from a “broken belly” condition, the celebrity was unable to give birth to Felix herself. Prior to his birth, she suffered 8 miscarriages and passed through failed IVF treatments.
Though Felix is proud of his mother’s success, her fame has some shortcomings. Thus, Elizabeth missed his preschool graduation because of being too busy at work.
A curious fact: in one of her interviews, Banks shared that as soon as Felix turned 15, he would go skydiving with him.
