Openly gay actor Neil Patrick Harris, star of the CBS sitcom “How I Met Your Mother,” announced via his Twitter page over the weekend that he and his partner David Burtka will become parents to twins in the fall. Harris’ rep confirmed the news yesterday (Mon. Aug 16).

In his Tweet, the 37-year-old actor said that he and his partner are “super excited/nervous/thrilled” but did not clarify on how the babies will make their “arrival,” whether it be via adoption or a surrogate mother. However E! News confirmed with a source that the couple will indeed use a surrogate to bring the babies (a boy and a girl) into the world.
