How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka were recently the subject of rumors that they were going to become parents.  While it’s not true, it’s not out of the question according to Harris.

The 36-year-old actor said, “We’d made very good parents.  And he added, “We yin and yang very well.  I’m just bowled over by him.  I’m his forever protector, and I’m happiest when he’s happy.”

While Neil is comfortable with his sexuality now, that wasn’t always the case.  He admits, “I tried… dating different girls, being the funny, witty guy at the party.”

The Real World’s Danny Roberts, who is gay, helped inspired Harris to be able to be comfortable with who he is.  He said he “was a unique entity at the time, as someone who was seemingly so confident in their own skin.”

I think NPH would make a wonderful daddy!  Good luck, if he should want to pursue becoming a parent.
