Neil Patrick Harris And David Burtka's Parenting Insights

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka enjoy life with their teenage twins, Harper and Gideon.

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, the beloved celebrity couple, are enjoying life with their teenage twins, Harper and Gideon, who recently turned 13. The couple recently shared insights into their family life as they embarked on a special voyage with Disney Cruise Line.

According to Harris, their children, being city kids from Manhattan, exhibit a surprising level of maturity for their age. The couple takes pride in instilling values in their kids and watching them navigate the world with knowledge and self-awareness.

Despite their rigorous school schedules, the couple's home is not yet a popular hangout spot for their kids' friends. However, they are considered the 'coolest parents' in their kids' social circles.

Partnering with Disney Cruise Line for a memorable trip, the family sailed to Castaway Cay in the Bahamas. Harris expressed admiration for Disney's ability to create inclusive and magical experiences for all guests, regardless of their background.

As their son Gideon delves into the entertainment world, starring in his school's production of Newsies, the couple emphasizes letting their children find their own paths and passions. They aim to support their kids while allowing them to navigate their journeys independently.

While Gideon thrives in his entertainment pursuits, Harris humorously mentions trying to teach him basic table manners, like putting a napkin in his lap. Burtka focuses on guiding Harper to prioritize self-awareness and personal responsibility over external factors.

Excited about exploring the Disney Wish during their cruise, the couple looks forward to getting lost a few times while immersing themselves in the magic of the ship.
