Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka Open Up About Life at Home

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka are on the cover of the latest issue of Parade, out now.

Here’s what the 45-year-old How I Met Your Mother actor and the 43-year-old Life Is a Party: Deliciously Doable Recipes to Make Every Day a Celebration author had to say…

Neil, on party planning and cooking together: “[David]’s big on lists. I say, ‘Yes, chef,’ when we’re in the kitchen, like we’re on some reality show. And I do all the dishes.”

David, on hosting a Halloween party: “We had a big Halloween party, and [Neil] turned the basement into a maze. Jane Krakowski came out and said, ‘That was the scariest thing I’ve ever experienced in my life.’”

Neil, on being social with friends: “Life is a party when you have other people to celebrate with.”

    You know, I get a funny feeling about him too. He used to seem much happier. I wonder if he was really hurt when he was doing award shows and got criticized. I also wonder if being married and raising children has taken a toll on his joy.
