Elizabeth Banks: “I Lost All My Nails” Being a Hands-On Mom to Two Boys
They don't call it double trouble for nothing!
Actress Elizabeth Banks and her husband Max Handelman recently welcomed their second son, Magnus, a little brother for Felix, who turns 2 in March.
Elizabeth told People she had no idea how easy one child was until she had two. She said it all hit home when they celebrated the holidays like normal people, with no hired help.
“[We] had no help, no nannies, no babysitters. It was crazy. You forget how difficult it is to wake up in the middle of the night, how exhausting it is,” Elizabeth said. “I lost all my nails. I did dishes and cleaned bottles for 10 days so I lost all those nails!”
At least Felix is a good big brother. “He loves to say how cute Magnus is and he loves to give him kisses and he’s very gentle," Mom said. Aww! Just wait until they are older and start fighting. Then it gets really fun.
