Neil Patrick Harris got the best birthday and Father's Day combo treat.

The How I Met Your Mother star – who turned the big 4-0 on Saturday, just one day shy of the day to honor dads – captured the most adorable photo of his and partner, David Burtka's two-year-old twins, Gideon Scott and Harper Grace.

After jokingly Tweeting that he only wants "lots of presents" for his birthday – "good ones. Well thought out gifts" – the funnyman followed up by writing, "Never mind. I've got the two best gifts in the world sitting right in front of me," and he posted a little snapshot of his cuties.

While turning 40 may have reinstated his love of fatherhood, it apparently hasn't done much for his mind.

"So weird," he Tweeted. "I woke up this morning with infinite wisdom. Not sure why … Oh, wait. Scratch that last Tweet. I thought turning 40 would bring enlightenment. It doesn't. I'm still pretty dim."
