David Burtka and Neil Patrick Harris Welcome Twins Gideon and Harper

And babies make four: How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris and his partner, chef David Burtka, welcomed twins into their family this week. Harris, who’s also a frequent presence on Broadway and first gained prominence on Doogie Howser, M.D., shared the big news on Twitter. “Babies!!! On 10/12, Gideon Scott and Harper Grace entered the Burtka-Harris fold. All of us are happy, healthy, tired, and a little pukey,” Harris tweeted. He and Burtka have been together since 2004 and used a surrogate mother to have children.
