Neil & fiancé David Burtka welcomed Oprah into their L.A. home to meet their adorable 19-month-old twins Gideon & Harper! Check out the video!

Neil Patrick Harris and fiancé David Burtka sure are proud parents! They let Oprah Winfrey and her cameras into their home to show off little Gideon and Harper to us all!

The How I Met Your Mother star has managed to keep his public and private life separate but when the Queen of Talk Shows entered his house, he opened up on how his new bundles of joy came into his life. The process involved two eggs, two embryos, one anonymous egg donor and one surrogate mother.

“I think the way they were brought into this world was very unique and weirdly scientific, and the technology involved in it, I think, is remarkable,” said Neil, 38. “But it came because we really, really wanted kids. Like we really had thought it through financially, emotionally, relationship-wise. Like we didn’t just accidentally get pregnant and decide that now we need to make this work. These kids came into our world with nothing but love.”

The twins — one boy and one girl — look happy and healthy! Gideon (pictured) is the shy one and Harper Grace is more chatty!

Check out a clip from their interview below!
