Mrs Carter: Double the work, but double the love – who could ask for anything more?
Having twins is a lot of fun, but it can also come with a lot of work when you are on double duty all the time, but for ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star Neil Patrick Harris, he says having twins has been a blessing for him and David Burtka.
In a recent interview with Parade, Harris gushed about his 15-month old fraternal twins, Gideon and Harper saying that he loves watching them interact with each other. He said;
“I love watching them learn to understand language. And watching them interact with each other is fantastic. We’re lucky that we have two because they always have a playmate and they get to learn complicated concepts like sharing and cooperation. They get to learn those things a little earlier because they’re with each other all the time. Watching their minds tick is fun.”
With Harris having such a busy career schedule as he “powers through” the seventh season of ‘How I Met Your Mother’ as well as a possible sequel to ‘The Smurfs’ movie in the works, Neil reveals that he relies on his assistant a lot when it comes to finding a nice balance between his work and fatherhood. He said;
“I have an unbelievable assistant who handles all of my scheduling! It’s like a Tetris game. I’ve been doing this for a while and sometimes you have spells of busyness and other times you’re clamoring for work. It’s nice to not be put out by being so busy, but to try to embrace it and make smart choices. I guess I’m in a nice position that way. I get to choose things that interest me as opposed to trying to get any job that will have me, which for a vast majority of actors is the case.”
Neil Patrick Harris is one of our favorites here at Cartermatt and we just love how easy he makes fatherhood look to the rest of us.
