Because Twitter is the new press release, Neil Patrick Harris today Tweeted that he and his longtime partner, David Burtka, are becoming daddies:
“So, get this: David and I are expecting twins this fall. We’re super excited/nervous/thrilled. Hoping the press can respect our privacy…” (Bonus points for not declaring they are “OVER THE MOON!”)
Somewhere, Barney Stinson is shaking his head and sighing, “Dude! Why are you messing up a good thing with KIDS?”
NPH and Burtka, a chef and actor who has guest-starred on How I Met Your Mother, have been together for roughly six years. The next time we see a picture of them…? They’re going to be raising two cans of Red Bull. TWINS! Wow. Best of luck, boys.
