The home of Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka will soon be invaded by a gigantic cloud reeking of Similac saliva, diarrhea-infused Balmex and the hot tears of sleepless nights, because their surrogate has birthed out a double dose of BABY!!!!!! NPH took to his Doogie Howser desktop, of course, to type out the announcement on his Twitter page:
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.
Harper Grace sounds like the name of a New England-inspired line of bed linens and towels sold exclusively at JcPenney, but the name Gideon Scott works for me. It reminds me of this kid in the second grade named Gideon who told me that I ran like a woman. He didn’t say “girl,” he said “woman,” so therefore it’s a compliment!
