Nappy Christmas for Glee star Neil

Neil Patrick Harris has a fun-filled Christmas ahead - changing nappies.

The How I Met Your Mother actor and partner David Burtka are enjoying being new dads to twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace who were born in October.

"We've no big plans," the actor, who has also guest-starred in Glee, revealed in Hollywood.

"We have these two new little babies so we can't really go anywhere," he laughed.

Neil hit the red carpet for a special fundraiser for The Trevor Project which focuses on suicide prevention for gay young people in the States.

With the suicides of bullied gay teens making headlines in the US this year, the Doogie Howser star confessed he'd experienced some bullying growing up.

"I was on a TV show for half the year but when the season ended I was back in high school for the second semester," he explained.

"I was bullied in a very random way, I was sort of ostracised because they thought I was pretentious and snobby as an actor, which certainly doesn't hurt anywhere near as much as some bullying does."

The actor said his boyfriend is the person he turns to with any problems.

"David, my better half, we talk about everything. He's really good, he's there all the time in my world, so he talks me down off the edge," he said.
