Neil Patrick Harris expecting twin babies: Tells why now, and of partner’s skills as a dad

”Last week was our first week back [to work]. And now we’re having twin babies in October. So, as if things weren’t busy enough!  Now we’re not going to be sleeping. So, the crystal meth addiction will start late October, around Halloween time….”

”We’ve known about this for some time, obviously, and planned it to within an inch of its life, as far as protecing everyone and making sure that we get to do it in a normal way normal people would get to do it…. But that didn’t happen…. I just thought to tweet about it would be the sensible way. Sort of stop the story. I tweeted like ‘I hope the press respects our privacy,’ which in hindsight seemed like a stupid thing to say to the world wide web. What I mean is, I hope that they respect that it really is like a private thing…. I do think three cars following me around to the gym seems a little bit odd….”

”Yeah, we’re very excited. I’m sort of glad that the news is out and it seems like such a wonderful thing, and a great thing that you’d want to share and hear experiences, and get advice, and beam…. We’re not at all doing this for any other reason than we want to be good dads.

”I’m 37 now, so I think, ‘I don’t want to be 75 with a kid.’ Do you know what I’m saying? So, it felt like the time to do it. And David is an extraordinary dude and has raised kids before in a previous relationship that were his. Twins. His first boyfriend, Lane, was in the process of getting a surrogate himself, and then David helped raise them. So they aren’t David’s kids, per se, but he helped raise them a good 2-1/2 years. And we still hang out with them. They’re awesome kids….”

”Being guarded and feeling like you’re giving half-truths about things — I pride myself on not lying to the press.”
