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."
