Neil Patrick Harris has a lot to be thankful for this holiday, particularly his children.
"I've never been happier," Harris said of twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace during an appearance on "The Talk" on Monday.
The "How I Met Your Mother" star, whose kids with partner David Burtka were born via a surrogate six weeks ago, said that Gideon and Harper both have different personalities. Their son is "a great burper" and "sleeps all the time," while their daughter is a bit "fussier."
But Harris, 37, revealed that Harper's problems actually stemmed from a gastrointestinal problem. "It feels awful," he said. "All you want as a parent is to make sure they're OK and that they're comfortable."
After the couple tried a hypoallergenic formula and consulted an osteopath, the little girl's health turned around.
"It was fantastic," said Harris. "[Harper] sort of snapped and was a different person. Super calm. Everything is much better."
