Poppa and Daddy with their twins
How to call two fathers in order to not confuse one to the other? Neil Patrick Harris and partner David Burtka had to think about this issue now that they are parents to nine-month-old twins, daughter Harper and son Gideon.
Soon the kids will learn to talk and they have to know how to call their parents. “This is a sore subject. Because we are two gentleman with children. And so we didn’t know what to call ourselves. Daddy One and Daddy Two sound kind of strange…So David’s ‘daddy’ and I’m ‘poppa’, just to differentiate”, Harris solved the issue.
