Neil Patrick Harris celebrated his 40th birthday and an early Father's Day on June 15, sharing that he received the best birthday presents ever -- his kids.
The How I Met Your Mother star gushed about his birthday, tweeting: "For my birthday, I only want one thing for the world: lots of presents for me. And good ones. Well thought out gifts. So… tick tock."
He quickly followed the tweet with the most adorable picture of his two-year-old twins with David Burtka, Gideon Scott and Harper Grace.
The actor posted the pic to Twitter saying, "Never mind. I've got the two best gifts in the world sitting right in front of me."
He also joked on the social media site about turning the big 4-0.
"So weird. I woke up this morning with infinite wisdom. Not sure why…", he wrote. Adding, "Oh, wait. Scratch that last tweet. I thought turning 40 would bring enlightenment. It doesn't. I'm still pretty dim."
Three months prior, Burtka surprised Harris with a one-of-a-kind birthday present.
Stopping by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Harris explained that Burtka planned their week of travel, surprises, and gifts for eight months, and carried it out two months before The Smurfs 2 star's actual birthday to ensure a proper surprise.
It began with an anniversary party where Harris received puzzle pieces, which, when assembled, directed him to the garden where he dug up a mini iPad. But that was just the beginning of an extravagant scavenger hunt.
What awaited Harris and Burtka was a trip to Vegas, training with Cirque du Soleil, massages, a trip to Disney World, rope courses, and ending with another surprise party at the late-night theatre hit Sleep No More that involved a serenade by Burtka of Open Arms.
“It was just like the coolest, most unbelievably terrifying and awesome birthday adventure. Thank you, David Burtka, you’re rad,” said Harris. “And now my actual birthday is going to suck.”
