Doogie Howser’s going to be a dad!
Neil Patrick Harris — star of How I Met Your Mother — has confirmed that he and long time partner, David Burtka, are expecting two bundles of joy later this year.
“So, get this: David and I are expecting twins this fall. We’re super excited/nervous/thrilled. Hoping the press can respect our privacy…” an excited Neil wrote in a Tweet early Saturday.
David has twins from a previous relationship.
In addition to planning fatherhood, NPH has been busy directing former Disney Kid Vanessa Hudgens and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger in a Hollywood Bowl production of the Broadway musical Rent.
Neil is also up for three Emmys this month – one for Best Supporting Actor Comedy for his work on HIMYM, a second for Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for Glee, and a third for hosting last year’s Tony Awards.
