Banks wrote: "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."

Banks also noted that she is "so very thankful" to all of her friends and family for their support.

"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," she joked.

The frequent 30 Rock guest star and her husband Handelman have been married since 2003.

She will next appear on the big screen with Emma Stone, Gerard Butler and Hugh Jackman in Movie 43, opening on January 25 in the US and February 1 in the UK.
