How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka 2-year-old twins Harper and Gideon were spotted at yoga class in Studio City, Calif. on Wednesday (May 22). While holding hands with the nanny, Gideon was all smiles as he hammed it up for the paparazzi. And Harper looked so pretty in her princess dress!
The Doogie Houser alum opened up about welcoming the twins via surrogate mother.
“We really, really wanted kids,” NPH said. “We really had thought it through financially, emotionally, relationship-wise. We didn’t just accidentally get pregnant and decide that now we need to make this work. These kids come into our world with nothing but love.”
The handsome couple talked the science behind the birth of the fraternal twins, revealing each father fertilized one egg and the twins were carried and born via one surrogate.
Burtka explained that the twins were conceived by “two eggs, two embryos, one of mine, one of his.”
The couple knew the surrogate, whom Burtka described as “more like the oven.” And they found an anonymous egg donor through a donation bank where they were able to research her personal and medical history.View Slideshow »»
