Neil Patrick Harris Talks Sperm

Neil Patrick Harris and partner David Burtka are over the moon with their new baby twins. The couple of seven years used a surrogate to give birth to fraternal twins Harper Grace and Gideon Scott on Oct. 12

“Everyone says that it’s such a blur after it happens,” Harris said, pictured with Burka leaving Equinox gym on Aug. 8. “I find myself constantly just trying to wrap my mind around it.”

“We inserted two eggs, one with my sperm, one with David’s sperm and they both took,” the How I Met Your Mother star said of their double joy.

“I just love the way they smell. And we can use them as an excuse to get out of almost anything,” joked the funnyman Harris. “That’s cleared the calendar in a good way.”
