Harris: My daughter’s a flirt

Neil Patrick Harris is constantly amused by his twins.

The former How I Met Your Mother star opens up about life with his husband David Burtka and their twins, Gideon and Harper, in a new choose your own adventure-style memoir.

"Harper has a big personality," he writes in an excerpt obtained by the New York Daily News. "When she is three you catch her singing Miley Cyrus' Wrecking Ball, a song nobody should sing until they're at least dead.

"She is also precocious. Sometimes you and David worry you're raising a stripper because she has such an affinity for taking her clothes off. She is also a shameless flirt. She has a boyfriend in her preschool class whom she is going to marry,” he muses.

The couple had the children through a surrogate and Neil adds that if he had to make a bet, he would guess little Harper is David’s biological daughter.

But the actor insists he doesn’t feel the need to know.

"...You don't have to wager, and it doesn't matter,” Neil writes.

The star also muses on what their toddlers call them, noting that Harper and Gideon refer to him as “Papa”, and David as “Daddy”.

"You find it a more convenient system of nomenclature than ‘Daddy 1’ or ‘Daddy 2’ or ‘Sinners A and B,’" he jokes.

Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Adventure is scheduled for US release in October.
