As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, last night New York legalized gay marriage. As if this news wasn’t beautiful enough, the word is that this wonderful decision is making other states reconsider their own stances on the issue. Do you know how glorious it would be if all the states got it together long enough to make marriage legal for everyone? It would be more glorious than dry humping Justin Timberlake. It would even be more glorious than Katy Perry’s boobs. And are you ready for this? The complete legalization of gay marriage would be EVEN MORE GLORIOUS than The Rock at Splash Mountain. And that’s almost unbearably phenomenal.
Just to tie this all in to the celebrity gossip world, do you know what this decision means? It means that beautiful Neil Patrick Harris will finally be able to marry his longtime boyfriend and fellow father, David Burtka, which is obviously fantastic. Here’s Neil’s celebratory Tweet:
I know there’s still a ways to go (to directly quote a friend on the Facebook, “New York, New York. They embrace being gay while my state tries to make the word illegal! 6 down, 44 to go.”), but I’m a big believer in celebrating the victories. So you all celebrate your asses off tonight, and I’ll see you in the morning!

This is a picture that Neil posted on his Twitter yesterday of his partner, David Burtka, and his two little babies, Harper and Gideon, with the caption “Relaxing on a Sunday afternoon. My heart is full of love.” I defy you to show me something more adorable.

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.
Consider me swept.
