Neil Patrick Harris’ Darling Daughter

Actor Neil Patrick Harris shared a precious pic via Instagram Monday.

“Harper won’t leave her room. Thanks @PotteryBarnKids for the vanity, both literally and figuratively,” the proud papa, 41, captioned the image of his darling daughter Harper, nearly 4.

The How I Met Your Mother alum recently opened up to Glamour about fiancé David Burtka and their two kids — including Harper’s twin Gideon.

“When Harper was one or two years old and barely talking, she would put on Disney princess outfits (which she still does, by the way). Everyone would coo and take pictures,” he shared. “Gideon felt left out, so he put on a dress too. We all cooed and aww-ed and there was no weirdness. But after about four minutes, you could see it: He just didn’t like it. It was too girly, too frilly, and he just took it off, like, Nah, this is not my thing. Lately he’s been wearing construction vests and hard hats, and he asks construction people if he can work with them. He couldn’t be happier.”

As for keeping the love alive, NPH says that having kids was a great boost for his relationship with Burtka.

“Honeymoon phases end. They just do,” he shared. “We’re animals, and animals aren’t inclined to copulate with just each other for the rest of their lives. So here’s a challenge: How do you keep redefining your relationship? I think you have to find new elements that turn you on, and not only sexually. Having kids was one of those great moments for me. Watching David become another level of person, mastering this other domain, made me look at him with a whole other set of appreciative eyes. That sort of made me re-fall in love with him.”

He added: “That’s another important thing to realize. Everyone falls out of love with everything. You fall out of love with your house. You fall out of love with your job. You just have to figure out ways to keep [the love] alive.”
