Last week, '30 Rock' actress Elizabeth Banks joyfully announced that she has become a mom to baby boy Felix, after she and her husband Max Handelman welcomed their bundle of joy via gestational surrogate.

On her blog, the comedic actress, 37, shared the "one true hurdle" she's faced in life, infertility.

"After years of trying to get pregnant, exploring the range of fertility treatments, all unsuccessful, our journey led us to gestational surrogacy: we make a 'baby cake' and bake it in another woman's 'oven,'" she wrote, citing "two miracles" in the process: the chance to develop a positive bond with their surrogate and her husband, and the chance to celebrate Felix's healthy birth.

Meanwhile, Banks is hardly the only celebrity who has found surrogacy successful after often-heartbreaking fertility challenges.
