Neil Patrick Harris is thrilled — but exhausted — about being a brand new dad to twins!

Those middle of the night bottle feedings are starting to take a toll on new dad Neil Patrick Harris. The How I Met Your Mother star and his partner, David Burtka, became proud parents to a baby boy and girl — Gideon Scott and Harper Graceborn via a surrogate on October 12. Very early this morning Neil, 37, took to Twitter to admit he’s feeling the effects of not catching enough Zzz’s.

“I think sleep deprivation is making me punchy,” he wrote. Can you relate, HollyMoms? How old were your babies before they finally started sleeping through the night?

His HIMYM costar Alyson Hannigan, 36, confirms that Neil and David are loving every second of being first-time fathers. “I saw them this morning,” she tells Us magazine. “They are just so happy and just so in love with their babies!”
