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!
