    Neil Patrick Harris is gonna be the BEST DAD EVER :D

  • jolly folly

    Not to be rude, but why can’t people who want kids and can’t have any adopt? There are so many many kids out there needing homes.

    I’m am happy for them as I think they will make great parents, but there are great kids already out there needing a home.

  • Scopiooooooo

    This is NOT right.

  • mikee25

    @scopioooooo what’s not right about??? You sound like a bigot and ignorant!! Anyone that can give children a good home should have every right to be parents. He is financially stable to have children and would probably give them a much better home than many people that go and have children who are straight!!

  • klutzy_girl

    I’m so happy they’re having one of each! That little boy and girl are lucky.

    Something tells me Baby Girl Harris-Burtka is going to be spoiled rotten by her daddies and brother.

  • Anastasia

    Ahhh,i am so happy for them!
    They seem a really lovely couple and i’m sure these two babies are extremely lucky to have parents two people who love one another and they are ready to give them lots of love and care!Congratulations!

  • Anna

    Awwww, adorable! Congrats! I love NPH, he’s so talented.

  • LISA

    IT TAKES A MOTHER AND FATHER TO BRING UP A CHILD.

  • Channy

    @LISA: You’re so closed minded!! You make me sick! God will punish you for your black heart!

    I’m happy for them both and wish their growing family the best :) I just wonder who gave their sperm for the little bundles of joy?

  • ali

    Good for them! You know what’s eww? Bigots, hypocrites, biblethumpers, etc.

  • jensenLUVER tanya

    wow thats awesome!!! im happy 4 them!! best of luck guys!!

  • Not impressed

    This is just so wrong on so many levels—a child should be raised by a man & a woman not by two guys who sleep in the same bed!! I am so against gays adopting I could just scream. Where is the girl going to get her role model from and the boy will see some really nasty stuff in that house. WrongWrongWrong.

    Let’s hope these two plan to provide their children with as much information as possible about their birth mother. People who use surrogates and keep the mother’s identity a secret are violating their children’s basic civil right to know who both their parents are.
    It’s also pretty egotistical to use a surrogate when there are so many children out there waiting for good homes.

  • sparkle

    @Not impressed:

    yeah, because there are SO many woman role models out there – strippers, drug addicts, abusers . . . and there are plenty of straight men who are capable of doing “nasty nasty stuff” for children to see as well! . .it’s not gender that matters when raising a child, it’s the love and care given to the child.

  • boo

    According to God’s Word, their lifestyle is a sin. It is condemned in the Bible for a reason.

    Revelation is clearly upon us and this is just the tip of the iceberg. God made a man and a woman to raise children. Nature does not allow these two men to have babies for a reason, but apparently the US has gone morally bankrupt and thinks its okay.

    Where do you draw the line? Seriously!

  • mikee25

    @boo …I am sure that you don’t follow everything that the bible says because its practically impossible. ALL humans are sinners and we are born sinners!!! PLEASE look up all the things that you are not supposed to do in the Bible and you will find yourself a sinner yourself and guess what all sins are equal in God’s eyes!! I fee that one of the worst sins of all is the hate in your heart….God loves all his children and people like you make people turn away from God. You need to worry about your own SINS instead of judging what you THINK are the sins of others!!!!!!

  • Jase

    @boo: According to the Bible, LYING and living a LIE is also a Sin. Cutting your HAIR is a Sin! Everyone’s going to hell! LOL. How can anyone take the Bible seriously when the Testaments have BS like that??

  • anna

    awwwww XD congrats <333

  • LISA

    @Channy: THE TRUTH HURTS. IT TAKE A MOTHER AND FATHER TO BRING UP A CHILD, IT NATURE WAY

  • LMAO

    @LISA: Who told you that? The old invisible man up in the sky?

  • Yasmin

    so precious!

  • boston61

    @Butterflier:

    Agree. The kids will not consider the woman their “Birth” mother. She will always be their Mom in their minds. I hope the guy can deal with this.

    Also, wondering if they each fathered one of the babies. That would be fair.

    Of course nothing is more vile and repulsive that that Cat Cora of Top chef and her girlfriend SWAPPING embryos. Their kids will have a life of living hell.

  • LISA

    @LMAO: TWO MEN CAN NOT MAKE A BABY . IMPOSSIBLE

  • Elle

    get it straight justjared, are they adopting or using a surrogate. they are very different things. you guys have been slipping A LOT lately with grammatical and spelling errors which is a huge pet peeve for me. aren’t you supposed to be “professional” bloggers, and you can’t even use spell check?

  • Sweetie

    Eeuw, poor baby girl. :( Three me in the house …

  • tomi

    So good to have a big profile male couple doing this. Thumbs up for them. But just one thing, they are not adopting the babies, they are using surrogate mother, so once the babies are born they are their legal parents. There’s a difference between those two. When you are adopting a child, you are adopting someone else’s child, when using surrogate, someone is carrying your child.

    To those who find this disgusting because they’re gay & to those who believe that kids should raised by 2 parents (against singles having children)… Are you for real?! Do you have ANY idea how many children are abused & even MURDERED by their so-called loving parents? I could name so many cases that make me ashamed of being a human being… But I won’t. Simply because I won’t add to their infamy.

    Watch the WHOLE movie, “Parenthood”, & especially where Tod (Keanu Reeves) says the following: “You know, Mrs. Buckman, you need a license to buy a dog, to drive a car – hell, you even need a license to catch a fish. But they’ll let any butt-reaming asshole be a father.” Truer words were never spoken in society nowadays.

    Truer words were never spoken & how they apply to society as a whole. Take care of your own & leave strangers to live their lives THEIR way!

  • rossy40

    Forgot to add: CONGRATS to them both!

    @Butterflier:

    How can you say using a surrogate is egotistical? That’s like saying a straight couple having a baby is egotistical. Why shouldn’t they be able to have a child of their own blood? I’d adopt if I found out it would be impossible for me to have children any other way, but if my wife was barren I’d want to do surrogacy, and if I was sterile I’d want to find a good sperm donor. I’m happy for these guys!

  • lol.

    Boston, you are the strangest gay man I have ever had the misfortune to come across, albeit thankfully only online. Can you say self-hating?

  • duuuuuuude

    i did not know David Burtka was gay………………………..i think it would be extremely weird to have 2 dads when they were growing up. i have a feeling these kids are going to grow up gay too. i feel sorry for them.

  • http://seedsofgrace/youtube gabriel

    What a disgrace, they think they are doing good but actually are doing plenty of harm. They’ll not only have to give account to God for their sins on the day of Judgment, but they’ll have the blood of 2 innocent kids on their hands.

    As in the day sof NOAH, so shall it be in the days of the son of man.
