Neil Patrick Harris Welcomes Twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace
It’s a boy and a girl!
Neil Patrick Harris and partner David Burtka are officially fathers. The actors welcomed twins — a son, Gideon Scott, and a daughter, Harper Grace — on Tuesday, Oct. 12, the How I Met Your Mother star announced on Twitter Friday.
“All of us are happy, healthy, tired, and a little pukey,” he wrote.
Harris, 37, announced that he and Burtka, 35, were becoming parents in August. “We’re super excited/nervous/thrilled. Hoping the press can respect our privacy,” he wrote on Twitter at the time.
According to reports, the babies were born with the help of a surrogate.
At the Emmy Awards that month, Harris said he was getting excited about his new role — and doing research. “I’m trying to read as much as I can, and prep as much as I can,” he said at the time. “But there’s only so much you can do because each baby is super individual and totally their own person.”
