NPH’s twins are only 15-months old, but he talks to them like adults!

How I Met Your Mother actor Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka are the proud parents of adorable twins Gideon and Harper, but Neil says there’s no baby talk around their house! “My parents always talked to my brother and myself like we were regular people and not babies,” he tells PEOPLE. “So I don’t talk down to them in baby talk. I try to talk to them even though they can’t speak the language yet.”

Even though baby talk isn’t allowed in the Burtka-Harris house, there’s plenty of love for the twins. “They’re thankfully in the new huggy, clingy, head-on-shoulders phase, which is fantastic,” he gushes. “It’ll brighten up a sad day every single time.”

What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Do you use baby talk?
