It’s been two-and-a-half months since Neil Patrick Harris welcomed fraternal twins with his partner David Burtka, and now he wants to gush about them to the world.
Of his new little ones — Harper Grace and Gideon Scott, born October 12 — Neil says:
“Everyone says that it’s such a blur after it happens,”
“I find myself constantly just trying to wrap my mind around it.”
Neil and David have been together for 7 years, so it’s only logical that kids would be the next step, and Neil says they were ‘thrilled’ when they found out they’d welcome two at once.
And the twins, despite being delivered by a surrogate, are very much David and Neil.
“We inserted two eggs, one with my sperm, one with David’s sperm and they both took,”
“We had two babies that we made. With help.”
Now, the couple has gone ultra-domestic — re-locating to a more kid-friendly in Hollywood Hills, which also allows them to hide out from social gatherings.
Neil says his twins are a date breaker:
“I just love the way they smell. And we can use them as an excuse to get out of almost anything,”
“That’s cleared the calendar in a good way.”
Super cute! Glad the little Burtka-Harris kids are adapting well. We want pictures!
