Neil Patrick Harris on His Twins Turning 10: "My Parenting Skills Are Both Terrible and Amazing"

Neil Patrick Harris has a lot to celebrate today. His twins, Harper and Gideon, have reached their milestone 10th birthday, which also means the How I Met Your Mother star can proudly say he's been a parent for a solid decade.

He took to Instagram to revel in the special day for his family.

"This last decade has absolutely whizzed by — and I've loved it," he wrote. "I've never felt more tired and broken down, nor more awake and alive. My parenting skills are both terrible and amazing. Having children makes you grow in a thousand different directions, and I am just so thankful to my kids for all of it."

Of course he also thanked his husband, David Burtka "for his unstoppable, handsome, tireless devotion and commitment to being a parent," as well.

As for his kids, who have just reached double-digit status? He was effusive.

"Kind, smart, clever, hilarious, savvy, intuitive, ingenious – they are my absolute prides and joys. I love them with every ounce of my being."
