Are Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka Expecting Twins? (UPDATE)

NPH confirms the baby news is true!

E! News is reporting that longtime couple Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka are expecting the birth of twin babies by way of surrogate this October. According to the site, the supposed daddies to be have already began planning the impending baby shower! Altho this report has not been confirmed by the couple, I can’t help but be excited by the notion of NPH and David becoming new parents together:

E! News has exclusively learned that the ubiquitous actor and his longtime partner, David Burtka, are going to become the parents of twins, via a beautiful surrogate, this October. At least the dads are allowed to celebrate with a champagne toast! A source tells E! that the happy couple have put baby shower plans in motion, as if Harris’ chance of winning three Emmys this month wasn’t already enough to celebrate! Burtka, a chef and actor who has guest-starred on How I Met Your Mother, was just seen with his multitalented beau last weekend after Harris directed a production of Rent at the Hollywood Bowl.

Now before we bust out the champagne and offer our official congratulations, let me remind you that Star magazine reported last year that the couple were planning to start a family together. Either that report was flat out wrong or Neil and David decided to push back their baby making for a year. I think I will hold off on getting too excited about this baby news until we hear something more substantial from either “dad-to-be” … still … how amazing will it be to see these two guys pushing a double baby stroller together?

UPDATE: Shortly after I posted this story, Neil Patrick Harris confirmed this report with a post on his official Twitter profile … here is what he tweeted just moments ago:

So, get this: David and I are expecting twins this fall. We’re super excited/nervous/thrilled. Hoping the press can respect our privacy…

Yay!! So the news is true!! Now it’s time to pop the champagne! NPH and David are going to make fabulous parents! I am so thrilled for them both!!

    I wonder how much money the surrogate was paid by Harris and Burtka to artifically inserminate one of their sperms in her.
