This news is legen – wait nine months for it – dary.

How I Met Your Mother‘ scene stealer Neil Patrick Harris and his boyfriend of about six years, actor/chef David Burtka, are expecting twins via a surrogate.

“So, get this: David and I are expecting twins this fall. We’re super excited/nervous/thrilled. Hoping the press can respect our privacy…” NPH tweeted today, confirming an earlier report by E! News.

The two bundles of joy are reportedly due in October.

NPH and Burtka – who has guested on ‘HIMYM’ multiple times, as Lily’s ex-boyfriend Scooter – have been the subject of surrogate pregnancy rumors before. In fact, just last September Harris dismissed talk that they were planning a family, though he did tell New York Magazine, “We’d make very good parents.”

“We yin and yang very well,” Neil also said of their relationship. “I’m his forever protector, and I’m happiest when he’s happy.”
