Neil Patrick Harris: Being a dad is nothing like what i expected

Neil Patrick Harris has opened up about being a first time dad! The actor and his partner, David Burtka, welcomed twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace via surrogate on October 12.

And Harris admits parenthood hasn’t been a walk in the park.

“Once we got home it was a bit of a shock,” Neil admits.

“Everybody said, ‘You’re going to look into their eyes and you’re never going to feel love burst forth like you feel… I’m like, not so much.

“I’m just a caregiver. They’re still so young.

“David and I thought it would be good to not swaddle them and to not pacify them and to have them figure stuff out on their own. And at this point we are like ‘Whatever it takes!’ A shot of whiskey, whatever you need just stop fussing.

“Gideon, our son, he’s a great burper. He sleeps all the time.

“Harper’s been a lot fussier. She’s had some sort of lower GI [gastrointestinal problem]. She’s always kind of working through something. It feels awful though, all you want as a parent is to make sure they’re OK and that they’re comfortable and they’re calm.”

“We went to an osteopath,” Neil adds. “[Harper] sort of snapped and is kind of a different person. Everything’s much better. I’m a huge fan of that!”
