Neil Patrick Harris has proven himself to be a talented performer, singer, comedian – and now he's adding father to his list of accomplishments.

Harris, 37, and his longtime partner David Burtka are expanding their family, the How I Met Your Mother actor confirmed Saturday.

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

According to E! Online, which was first to report the news, the couple are going to become parents with the help of a surrogate.

Harris and Burtka appeared to be getting into the spirit of their upcoming role as parents on Saturday: They were photographed at Disneyland.
