New dad Neil Patrick Harris ensured he got a good night's sleep when his baby twins first arrived home by hiring a sleep specialist to help them nod off.
The How I Met Your Mother star and his partner David Burtka welcomed twins Harper and Gideon via surrogate in October (10) and rather than getting used to restless nights, he hired in a nurse to teach the tots how to sleep right through.
He tells Popeater.com, "They're great sleepers. They sleep about 11 hours a night.
"We had probably the most fantastic baby nurse/sleep specialist who helped us out for almost the first five months and she was phenomenal and the benefits have been incredible."
