Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka‘s twins Gideon and Harper are only 15 months old, but taking a parenting tip from his parents, Harris doesn’t let their age impact on how he talks to them.
“My parents always talked to my brother and myself like we were regular people and not babies. So I don’t talk down to them in baby talk. I try to talk to them even though they can’t speak the language yet.”
He says about their personalities:
“They’re thankfully in the new huggy, clingy, head-on-shoulders phase, which is fantastic. It’ll brighten up a sad day every single time.”
Harris and Burtka were in Indianapolis, at Audi’s Penthouse Party at the Conrad Hotel enjoying a Super Bowl weekend off from the kids.
Harris tweeted earlier:
“Very excited for a Super Bowl weekend in Indianapolis. Where should I go? I hear there’s a big football game on Sunday.”
