After announcing back in August that he and his partner, David Burtka, were going to become parents, the moment is finally here. The couple’s surrogate gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl, last Tuesday. The men named the babies Gideon Scott and Harper Grace, and there are no pictures, but if you take a look at Neil Patrick Harris’ Twitter, it’s pretty clear that this is possibly the most adorable thing that ever happened. Here’s what he’s had to say so far on fatherhood:
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.
Youngsters. They cry a lot. I thought it was just a long bit that they were doing. I keep saying, “Annnnd, scene!”… but nothing happens.
You see what I mean? I think that if pictures are released, then I would just be done. I’m one of those “ooooh, babies!” people and also one of those “oooh, Neil Patrick Harris!” people, so really there’s no way I could handle the combination of the two. You guys are with me, right?
That generally amazing man, Neil Patrick Harris, and his partner of around six years, David Burtka, are going to get their lives changed in October, thanks to a surrogate. They’re expecting twins!
Can you even imagine Neil Patrick Harris as a father? He would tenderly hold his babies and sing them beautiful show tunes (“I Dreamed a Dream” is what’s in my vision for some reason, though I don’t know why Neil would be serenading his baby a song about shattered dreams). He would probably be a pretty good dude to have around in terms of simple cuts and scrapes (you can’t tell me he didn’t learn anything on Doogie Howser).
Feel free to leave your own lovely visions of Neil Patrick Harris, the father, in the comments!
Vanessa Hudgens played Mimi, a sexy drug addict, in the Hollywood Bowl’s production of Rent last night. While Vanessa looks pretty hot, her singing voice is a bit off in the video above. Director Neil Patrick Harris was likely not too pleased about that. The show is also starring Wayne Brady and Nicole Shsasdkf;aksdjasd from the Pussycat Dolls and has another show tonight and tomorrow. Let’s hope that Vanessa manages to keep the sex appeal while focusing a little more on hitting those notes.
Glee doesn’t return with new episodes until April 13th, but they’ve already given me something to look forward to.
One of the season’s new episodes will be directed by evil genius Joss Whedon and will guest star Neil Patrick Harris as a washed up former show choir member and “never-was” named Bryan Adam. Bryan is a former ladies man who always got all the chicks when he was in the choir with Will, whom he now considers his arch nemesis . “Show choir ruined his life, made him feel he could be a star, but all he could do is book Carnival cruises.”
In case you’re unaware of what Whedon and NPH can do when they’re brought together musically, watch the video. It’s a little thing called Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog.
The episode chock full of Whedon-Patrick -Harris goodness is slated to air sometime during May sweeps.
Last night CNN hosted their Heroes 2009 gala and just about everyone you could think of was in attendance. In fact, it’s easier to think of who wasn’t there than who was there. Britney, Paris, Lindsay… I guess they must be totally over because they were no shows. What about our tampon-tease Tila? Where was she? Surely she is a hero of sorts. Who did make it? The Rock, Carrie Underwood, AnnaLynne McCord who seems to be absolutely everywhere these days. Check out the photos below and let me know in the comments who you think was the best dressed and most deserving to be there. I know my hero, the electric (you heard me! Electric!) Debi Mazar was there, looking fierce as hell per usual.
Awww, I really feel for NPH, because I am always having to pee at the most inopportune times, but this story really had me cracking up:
At last night’s fan event for How I Met Your Mother at the TV Academy in North Hollywood, NPH made a dash for the bathroom in the middle of the panel discussion (proving even his two preggo costars, Alyson Hannigan and Cobie Smulders, are better at holding it).
Bad luck for Neil though, since Jason Segel remembered his buddy still had his mic on. Over the crowd’s laughter, we fans could hear that Neil took a tip from Jack Donaghy and gave himself a little pep talk, saying, “Wake up!” before a publicist bolted in to tell him he was not alone.
Onstage, Segel exclaimed, “This never happens in real life!” to which Josh Radnor replied, “It’s like an episode of 30 Rock.”
Why was he telling his penis to wake up?
Isn’t that what you do when you’re trying to have sex, not pee?
There is clearly something about the male urination process that I don’t quite understand.
