Two months after announcing he was expecting twins with long-time partner David Burtka, Neil Patrick Harris can add the title of ‘Dad’ to his resume!

On the hit show, How I Met Your Mother, 37-year-oldNeil Patrick Harris‘ character Barney Stinson is a confirmed bachelor whose biggest fear is settling down and starting a family. It’s a stark contrast to Neil’s real life who on Oct. 12 welcomed newborn twins, Gideon Scott and Harper Grace with partner David Burtka, 35.

Neil and David, who have been together since 2004, announced in mid-August they were expecting twins via a surrogate. Neil posted the happy news via his Twitter.

“We’re super excited/nervous/thrilled. Hoping the press can respect our privacy,” Neil tweeted.

Today he turned to the popular social site to let the world know he was now a dad.

“Babies!! On 10/12, Gideon Scott and Harper Grace entered the Burtka-Harris fold. All of us are happy, healthy, tired, and a little pukey,” he tweeted.

We’re so happy for them! Congratulations Neil and David!

This is just another example of how much our country has declined, when it is such a great thing for two men who can’t naturally have a child…are praised for either adopting or having a surrogate. This is an abomination, and one of the many reasons God’s blessings are not really with our country anymore…we have moved away from the principles that our country was founded on.

quote LEAH ‘we have moved away from the principles that our country was founded on.’

One of those principles being ‘that all men are created equal’, which is the second sentence of the US Constitution. If you are going to use the founding principles as a means to support your homophobic ideology, then at least have the decency to learn what they are, or you will just come across as a bigoted imbecile.

Ryan, I am afraid that you have me mixed up with my good friend The Declaration of Independence. My friend, The Declaration of Independence, is the one who says ‘that all me are created equal”. I am flattered that you would give me the credit for this statement but you may want to brush up on your knowledge of us before you make another incorrect statement such as this in the future. Sincerely, The United States Constitution

No Leah I believe the only ambomination is people like you. Close minded people who follow the good book a little to strictly. It is not for you to dictate the life of others. Would you say the money this man gives to charity is an ambomination? He does a lot of amazing things with the power and money he has been giving and people like you are why suicides are high amongst gay youth today(sure thats a relief to you though less abominations in the world). People wanted to be accepted for who they are(I know it is crazy but yes even the homosexuals)and just because he chooses a different lifestyle then you deem “normal” does not mean it is wrong.

We can only hope that the U.S. will continue to follow the so-called cultural roadmap that you mention. Hopefully it will lead to a country that is more accepting of peoples’ differences than your puritanical, self-righteous, affected myopic viewpoint.

Just another egregious example of societal degredation – nothing more, nothing less. The U.S. will continue to follow the cultural roadmap of Rome, and likely suffer the same fate.

Pity!
