Doogie becomes a Daddy

Actor Neil Patrick Harris, of How I Met Your Mother and Doogie Howser MD (oh the memories…), became a father of twins last week.

On Tuesday, Harris and partner of six years David Burtka welcomed twins; boy Gideon Scott and girl Harper Grace, via surrogate. They arrived home on the weekend with Harris sharing the good 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.”

There are no photos yet, but we know it is only a matter of time before the proud dads show off their new bubs. Meanwhile, Harris is happy sharing the challenges of this new role online:

“Youngsters. They cry a lot. I thought it was just a long bit that they were doing. I keep saying, “Annnnd, scene!”… but nothing happens.”

“I think sleep deprivation is making me punchy. Night night.”

Congratulations to the happy family!
