From Los Angeles to New York, from a goofy friend to a down-on-her-luck transsexual, Neil Patrick Harris has been making a lot of changes lately.

After the final season of How I Met Your Mother, Neil recently began starring in the Broadway musical Hedwig And The Angry Inch. Since he plays a transsexual rocker in the show, his hair and make up takes nearly two hours to get right, and his toddler twins, Gideon and Harper, have a lot to say about it.

Neil recently appeared on Good Morning America and talked about the twins reactions. “Gideon and Harper did come to the dressing room and see me getting made up. They think it’s hilarious. Harper loves the glitter. They both like the nail polish so they think all of that is very funny.” 

I love that he brings his kids backstage with him. He and his partner David Burtka always seems to bring the twins to the cutest places, and it’s wonderful.

Neil wasn’t worried about his kids seeing him so done up because he’s made sure that they’ve always been exposed to what he and David do. “We’ve been dressing up with them for a long time, Halloween costumes and things. I think it’s important they know what we do as opposed to just, ‘Papa’s going to work and we don’t talk about that.'”

We all know the wonders of Neil and David dressing their kids up for halloween. It’s always perfect.

We know how hysterical Neil can be, proof of which can be found on his Instagram and of course on How I Met Your Mother. This new role shows off a different side of him though, and I’m super happy for him because he seems to be loving it! I am determined to see that show.
