Neil Patrick Harris: Oh boy & girl!

Neil Patrick Harris announced the arrival of his twins via Twitter Friday. The twins, a boy and girl, were delivered Tuesday.

"Babies!!" NPH tweeted. "On 10-12, Gideon Scott and Harper Grace entered the Burtka-Harris fold. All of us are happy, healthy, tired, and a little pukey."

In August, an overjoyed Neil Patrick Harris announced he and Burtka were going to be first-time parents.

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

Just after the announcement the couple were expecting, Neil Patrick Harris told Ryan Seacrest, "I'm trying to read as much as I can, and prep as much as I can. But there's only so much you can do because each baby is super individual and totally their own person. I'm very, very excited. It's the big, crazy calm before the ridiculous storm."

Gideon Scott and Harper Grace were allegedly born via a surrogate.
