Neil Patrick Harris and partner David Burtka expecting twins

Saturday, August 14, 2010

Neil Patrick Harris confirmed rumors on Saturday, and announced via Twitter that he and longtime partner David Burtka are expecting twins in the fall.

The pair have already started planning their baby shower, according to E! News, who first reported the twins were on the way, via a surrogate.

“So, get this: David and I are expecting twins this fall. We’re super excited/nervous/thrilled. Hoping the press can respect our privacy,” Harris “tweeted.”

Later in the day, the expectant dads hammed it up at Disneyland.

Harris is up for three Emmys this month — one for Best Supporting Actor Comedy on CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother,” a second for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for “Glee” and a third for hosting last year’s Tony Awards.

Burtka has experience with twins; he helped to raise twins from a relationship with a previous boyfriend, although he wasn’t a primary parent to them.

  1. These young men had better be faithful in their new roles as soon-to-be Dads for their children. Nothing they can ever do will be as important.
