Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka on double diaper duty

December 29, 2010 |  7:23 pm

Neil Patrick Harris, David Burtka Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka are piping up about new-dad life at home with their newborns, Harper Grace and Gideon Scott.

The two bundles, delivered via surrogate in October, are settled into a new, "more kid-friendly" home with their dads -- who themselves are getting accustomed to parenting.

"Everyone says that it's such a blur after it happens," Harris told People. "I find myself constantly just trying to wrap my mind around it."

Perhaps, then, you can wrap your head around this bit of sharing: Harris spelled out exactly who, um, fertilized what.

"We inserted two eggs, one with my sperm, one with David's sperm and they both took," he said.

Burtka sings of "absolute joy" over the two, and the couple are more than happy to give over their schedule to their brood.

"We can use them as an excuse to get out of almost anything," Harris said. "That's cleared the calendar in a good way."
