Gay actor Neil Patrick Harris and his longterm partner are to become parents to twins this autumn.

The How I Met Your Mother star and actor/chef David Burtka are preparing to welcome two tiny tots into their family – and the pair couldn’t be more thrilled about the imminent arrivals.

In a post on his Twitter.com page, Harris writes, “So, get this: David and I are expecting twins this fall. We’re super excited/nervous/thrilled. Hoping the press can respect our privacy…”

The star denied reports last year that he and Burtka were planning to have a baby, but admitted that they would consider children “maybe someday”.

It it not known whether the couple is planning to adopt or has lined up a surrogate mother to bear children for them.
