Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka Expecting TWINS

UPDATE: E! reports that they are having one boy and one girl.

Neil Patrick Harris and longtime partner David Burtka are expecting twins, Harris confirmed on his Twitter on Saturday.

So, get this: David and I are expecting twins this fall. We're super excited/nervous/thrilled. Hoping the press can respect our privacy...

Earlier in the day E! broke the news of the impending October arrivals.

E! News has exclusively learned that the ubiquitous actor and his longtime partner, David Burtka, are going to become the parents of twins, via a beautiful surrogate, this October...

A source tells E! that the happy couple have put baby shower plans in motion, as if Harris' chance of winning three Emmys this month wasn't already enough to celebrate!
