It's a girl and a boy for gay dads Neil
Patrick Harris and David Burtka.
Openly gay actor Harris tweeted the
good news to his nearly 1 million followers on Friday: “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,” he added.
The Associated Press is
reporting that Harris' publicist has confirmed the news.
In August, the 37-year-old actor used
the same medium to announce that the couple was expecting twins via
surrogate in the fall. Harris and celebrity chef Burtka entered a
domestic partnership in 2004.
Harris is the leading man of the CBS
comedy hit How I Met Met Your Mother. In the situation comedy
he plays heterosexual sex hound Barney. He won an Emmy Award this
year for a guest spot on Fox's musical-comedy hit Glee and
shared another for hosting the Tony Awards.
Four years ago, after much prodding
from celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, Harris announced he's gay. He
said he's known about his sexuality since he was fourteen.
