You won't be hearing any "Goo Goo Ga Ga"s in the home of Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka.
Neil says that the couple doesn't use baby talk around their 15-month-old twins Gideon and Harper.
And it stems from the fact that Neil's parents refused to babble around him when he was a baby.
"My parents always talked to my brother and myself like we were regular people and not babies so I don't talk down to them in baby talk. I try to talk to them even though they can't speak the language yet."
As for parenting and fatherhood, Neil says he is enjoying spending time with them, especially at this young age. He adds:
"They're thankfully in the new huggy, clingy, head-on-shoulders phase, which is fantastic. It'll brighten up a sad day every single time."
The twins are in such a sweet and cute stage right now. Pics, please, Neil, come on!!!
As for the baby talk, we wholeheartedly agree! No wonder Neil is so well-spoken. Think we know the secret now! No baby talk!!
