  5. I am jealous of those kids, who look like they are ready for a happy childhood with a set of wonderful parents.

  6. Very cute couple. I think they look very similar though, almost like they could be related. Although looking similar when you both look good is not a bad thing.

  8. You really do have to hand it to People magazine for all the gay-positive articles they write. Much happiness to the new dads and babies.

  12. Awesome for them, that is a cute family and I hope they are getting some sleep and I agree with Yeahisaidit about slowly but surely, it's happening.

  13. Ohh, ahh, aren't they adorable!
    May countless other lesbian and gay male couples in America know the same joy.

  14. I love the look on David's face, pure joy. **sigh**

  15. They are sooo adorable.

    Oh, and the babies are very cute too. :-)

    So amazing to think that a national magazine has a spread like this. Think 20 years ago... this would have never been printed or if it were, there would have been a huge Anita Bryant-style backlash.

  16. Wes.

    It's the same mother! The twins were born in the same womb.

  17. Hmmm... I just read an article about Burtka already having kids with another previous hubby that he doesn't support, so I'm not as impressed as everybody else.

  18. David's EX already had kids before he met him, so hes not responsible for the kids. Great pic and once again NPH is pure awesome.

  19. @Jerry: sounds like something a gossip rag would print, and most likely without anything real to back it up. NPH has been interviewed saying he plays step-dad to those kids, so "support" could be insinuated in myriad ways depending on how you want to portray people. I'd err on the side of caution before labeling anyone some kind of dead-beat dad, as people who choose and work toward becoming parents usually consider what is best for the child(ren) before forcing some kinds of "support" on them and the person/people who retain custody and primary care-giving duties.

  20. Jerry That is tabloid BS. NPH has talked about the kids many times, those were David's former boyfriend's kids.David and NPH still see the kids they took them to Disneyland. But David has no say in how often he sees an ex'bf kids

  21. Was that the Ex who died?

    Posted by: anon | Dec 30, 2010 2:31:02 PM

  22. Help! Ice around bah-humbug Scrooge-like heart is being melted by adorable family!! "It's all just a photo . . . oooh, look at their little toesies!!"

    Posted by: coolbearinmd | Dec 30, 2010 3:33:53 PM

  23. Mike: I'm confused. Are you talking about David Burtka's ex's children? Why would NPH be required to support them? Besides, it has already been said that his ex had already started the surrogacy process when he and David B. began their relationship, and that he and NPH still spend time with them even though David B. has no biological or legal rights to them.

    Anyway, the photos are adorable.

  24. Who is breast feeding? Have they contacted LaLeche? Are they sharing wet nurses w Elton? Are they buying breast milk on the black market?I need to know.

  25. These pictures are too adorable. I love the way Neil is looking at David. Pure love. I wish nothing but the most love anyone can ask for in this happy home.
