Congrats to Neil Patrick Harris, who announced this weekend that he and his partner are expecting twins. Sadly, NPH also announced that he is planning to take a break from the biz to be a full-time daddy once the babies arrive. We will miss him, but I’m sure those babies will be stupid cute.
After the jump, some more famous gay men who also became proud papas.
- When Ricky Martin revealed his twin boys, Valentino and Matteo, to the world, we kind of wanted to cry. And then we wanted him to adopt us so we could all be one big happy family living la vida loca.
- “American Idol” contestant Clay Aiken welcomed son Parker Foster Aiken into the world back in 2008. Aiken’s friend, Jaymes Foster (sister of music producer David Foster), acted as the surrogate and now co-parent. Ten bucks says baby Parker’s in the music biz when he grows up. [FOX]
- “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” actor B.D. Wong was the father of twin sons, Jackson Foo and Boaz Dove, with his long-term partner Richie Jackson. Tragically, Boaz Dov passed away 90 minutes after birth, which inspired Wong to write a memoir entitled Following Foo: the Electronic Adventures of the Chestnut Man about his experiences with surrogacy and fatherhood.

- My favorite author and sex advice columnist, Dan Savage, is also my favorite gay dad. He and his husband, Terry Miller, have an adopted son, Daryl. In true Dan Savage-style, he even wrote a book about the adoption process, The Kid: What Happened After My Boyfriend and I Decided to Go Get Pregnant. [NNDB]
