Is Neil Patrick Harris Going to Be Single Soon?

My answer: NO, DUH, GOD. Of course Neil Patrick Harris isn’t going to be single soon, that’s such a dumb thing to even think! He has been with David Burtka for eight years, and they have adorable children together and they’re going to get married together and they’re going to be together forever, AND THAT’S IT.

Unsurprisingly, the National Enquirer (via Celebitchy) doesn’t see things the same way I do:

The baby blues have hit Neil Patrick Harris and his gay partner David Burtka — and they’re dragging their feet on wedding plans, sources say.

The “How I Met Your Mother” star, 39, isn’t ready to give the couple’s young twins a sibling, but David is, and friends fear it could end their relationship.

“Neil loves being a dad to baby Gideon and his sister Harper, but he doesn’t want to re-create ‘The Brady Bunch,’” a friend told The Enquirer.

“He’s so busy with his acting career and other work that it would be circuit overload for him to add another child to the mix — and this has upset David.”

Neil, who came out of the closet in 2006, has been with 37-year-old David, an actor and celebrity chef, for eight years. They became dads when a surrogate delivered the twins in October 2010, and last year the pair announced plans to marry. But they haven’t moved forward with their wedding, and sources say the main sticking point is the size of their family.

“David believes that with all the good fortune they’ve had, they should share it with a large family,” said another source.

“But Neil was nervous as could be becoming a dad to twins. He can’t imagine going through that again.”

In a recent interview, the former “Doogie Howser, M.D.” star admitted he “didn’t love” his first months as a dad. “I struggled with it a lot,” Neil said, adding he’d often “pass off” the twins to David and tackle other household chores instead.

“They have a pretty good system now with the twins, but Neil can’t imagine adding another baby to the equation,” said the friend. “David, on the other hand, doesn’t see why they wouldn’t want to. If they can’t resolve this, it could be the end of them as a couple.

YOU SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTH, ENQUIRER. There has never and there will never be anything wrong with the beautiful, perfect union between Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, and I really will not hear anything to the contrary. You’re just jealous that you haven’t found a love like theirs, Enquirer. That’s all this is. So why don’t you stop talking about other people and look into your own life? Don’t put your own bitterness on these guys. You’re pathetic, Enquirer, that’s what you are. Straight pathetic.

  • Uh huh., and Rosie was drunk, mean.. driven crazy by partnership trials.. and Elton almost dumped his partner when he begged for a kid and it’s just like all couples.. you want this or that, perfect family dreams.. but family and a partner is becoming a chore and cost a lot and takes from your freedom and career plans..

  • Yeah, duh! But who believes the National Enquirer anyways? In the last couple of years they got exactly one (in words: one) story right, so why should we believe what they’ve got to say now? So he didn’t love being a new dad; many parents don’t, either. It’s stressful. But that doesn’t mean they’re gonna split up over that. Besides, it can’t be true. They’re my go-to perfect love story. Therefore it can’t be true.

  • Both Neil & David wrote on Twitter that the Article is just a bunch of lies and that everything is okay with them. :)
