Actor Neil Patrick Harris has quickly put to bed the rumor that he's trading in Hollywood to become a stay-at-home dad.

The star of CBS' How I Met Your Mother and his partner, celebrity chef and part-time actor David Burtka, announced over the weekend that they are expecting twins via a surrogate.

“So, get this: David and I are expecting twins this fall,” he tweeted to his thousands of followers on Saturday. “We're super excited/nervous/thrilled.”

“Hoping the press can respect our privacy...” he added.

Celebrity website reported on Tuesday that an unnamed source told them that Harris would be taking a break from Hollywood in October after the birth of his twins.

“[W]ith twins due in October, Neil is thinking about taking a break,” the source said. “Moving from Hollywood to New York City to be a full-time daddy.”

Harris returned to Twitter to deny the rumor: “I'm absolutely not leaving LA or the business. Errant reporting, Popeater. Total bunk.”

Celebrity glossy Us Weekly reported that the couple is expecting a son and a daughter.
