Neil Patrick Harris has just taken on his most challenging role to date: fatherhood.
The "How I Met Your Mother" star announced over the weekend that he and partner David Burtka, 35, welcomed twins into their family, and there have been quite a few teary eyes around their home ever since.
"Babies!! On 10/12, Gideon Scott and Harper Grace entered the Burtka-Harris fold," the actor tweeted on October 15. "All of us are happy, healthy, tired, and a little pukey."
And perhaps a little frazzled. Two days later, Harris, 37, revealed that he was still adjusting to the babies' bawling.
"Youngsters. They cry a lot," he wrote. "I thought it was just a long bit that they were doing. I keep saying, 'Annnnd, scene!'... but nothing happens."
But "How I Met Your Mother" co-star Alyson Hannigan, 36, told People magazine she has watched Harris interact with her 19-month-old daughter Satyana and says there's no question that he and Burtka will excel at their new gig.
"Without a doubt they will be wonderful dads who are going to love their little babies so much," she said. "Those are going to be two lucky babies."
