“Babies!”

So began Neil Patrick Harris‘ announcement on Twitter Friday, that he and partner, actor/chef David Burtka, had officially become fathers to multiples.

“On 10/12, Gideon Scott and Harper Grace entered the Burtka-Harris fold,” the ‘How I Met Your Mother’ triple-threat reported. “All of us are happy, healthy, tired, and a little pukey.”

NPH revealed his and Burtka’s imminent fatherhood back in August, saying that they were “super excited/nervous/thrilled” to enter this next stage of life.

Long the subject of surrogate pregnancy rumors, Harris once told New York Magazine that he and David would “make very good parents.”

“We yin and yang very well,” he said of their relationship. “I’m his forever protector, and I’m happiest when he’s happy.”

Burtka has guested on ‘HIMYM’ on four occasions thus far, playing Lily’s high school ex, Scooter.
