Neil Patrick Harris: “Daddyhood’s Been Great”

With his first Father’s Day just around the corner, How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris reveals that he plans to keep it a low-key one. Neil and his partner David Burtka are parents to 8-month-old twins Harper and Gideon.

“No big plans,” he tells Access Hollywood. “Daddyhood’s been great. It’s a brand new experience, every week, every day, every hour and they’re just at that age, they’re 8 months now, where they’re changing so much. They’re starting to sit up and recognize and interact and maybe start crawling. Every time we come home, it’s something new, and I appreciate that.”

Meanwhile, David also recently couldn’t help but gush about their beautiful babies, telling New York magazine, “They are the most fantastic kids. We have been blessed with two perfect little angels. Happy and sleeping, and it’s a godsend. We’re thrilled.”

I love the Burtka-Harris family. Neil and David are such an adorable couple, too. Can’t believe the twins are already eight months old!


Would love to see an updated photo of the babies.
