The Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka twins are on the way! For those of you who haven’t heard, the gay couple have selected a surrogate mother to give birth to babies that will be their very own children. How exciting!

Rumors have been swirling since last year that these two were considering adoption to add a baby to the mix of their lives and confirmation came just yesterday when Harris made the official announcement via the social networking site Twitter.

Harris Tweeted, “So, get this: David and I are expecting twins this fall. We’re super excited/nervous/thrilled. Hoping the press can respect our privacy…” While this announcement has been delivered publicly, I highly doubt that the media will leave this two alone. But my question is, will David and Neil be seeking out the media for some ching for those first published baby pictures? As a celebrity it goes both ways!

Neil and David have been a couple since April of 2004 and officially went public as gay partners in 2007. Their first outing as an official couple was that same year when they attended the Emmy awards together.

Expect to see the Burtka alongside Harris at this year’s Emmys ceremony which takes place later this month. Harris is nominated for three Emmy awards. Burtka is also an actor who has starred on Broadway. His acting credits include Broadway’s revival of Gypsy and the television shows The West Wing, Crossing Jordan, Open House, Worldly Possession, Army Guy, CSI: NY and How I Met Your Mother.
