Dad-of-two Neil Patrick Harris stars in the new comedy movie The Smurfs, and it looks like being around all those blue creatures has rubbed off on the actor.
Calling himself a “Smitten Smurf,” Neil says filming the family-friendly film inspired him to create some unusual nicknames for 9-month-old twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace.
“I think Gideon would be Stout Smurf, because he’s all like ‘grrr’. He’s like the tank,” Neil told Us magazine. “And Harper’s just like Beautiful Smurf. She’s an eye-batter right now. She’s wanting to hug and smile and get a smile back, so she’s very good at it.”
The proud papa went on to say that he and partner David Burtka are currently “waiting for them to crawl” and added, “They’re pretty great, but no big announcements.”
