LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Neil Patrick Harris is officially a first-time father.

The "How I Met Your Mother" television star announced via Twitter Friday that he and partner David Burtka's surrogate twins arrived October 12th.

"Babies!!" Harris 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."

This is the second time Harris turned to Twitter for a baby announcement. In August, he first tweeted that he and Burtka would be expecting twins in the fall.

"We're super excited/nervous/thrilled," he tweeted back then.

This is a year of firsts for the actor on the professional front as well. In August, Harris won his first ever Emmy awards for guest-starring on "Glee" and hosting "The 63rd Annual Tony Awards."

Earlier this week, it was announced the actor would make his feature directorial debut on the romantic comedy, "Aaron and Sarah.".
