Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka: both biological fathers

By Greg Hernandez Hope you are not confused by my headline!

So as you well know, the 2010 Greggy winners for Couple of the Year Neil Patrick Harris and David Burkta became parents of twins in October.

In case you were wondering whose sperm was used to inseminate the surrogate mother, here is your answer: “We inserted two eggs, one with my sperm, one with David’s sperm and they both took,” he tells ‘People’ magazine.

David said holding their children in the delivery room shortly after their birth was “just absolute joy,” says Burtka. “We had two babies that we made. With help.”

“Everyone says that it’s such a blur after it happens,” says Neil says of becoming parents to fraternal twins Harper Grace and Gideon Scott, born Oct. 12 via surrogate. “I find myself constantly just trying to wrap my mind around it.”

The family just moved into a “more kid-friendly” home in the Hollywood Hills and the twins have a new nursery with an old-school Disney theme park décor.
