Adorable out actor Neil Patrick Harris announced on Twitter Tuesday that his “wonderful west coast days are done”, and that he’ll be moving to New York City permanently with hubby David Burtka and their two-year-old twins Gideon and Harper.
The couple revealed in April 2013 that they’d be moving to the city’s Harlem neighborhood for the sake of their children. Also, because NPH will be starring in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway this Spring.
“Our plan is to reroute ourselves and have our kids start to go to school here,” Harris told Us. “We’re at that age where we need to figure out where our kids are going to be educated.”
I'm officially heading East. My wonderful west coast days are done. #goodtimes

The pair was spotted with tons of luggage at New York’s JFK Airport on Tuesday.
All very exciting news, of course, but not half as exciting as the prospect of the happy couple starring alongside recent NYC transplant Perez Hilton in the new Gay Dads of New York reality series!
Hilton announced in December that he’d partnered with Bunim/Murray Productions to “lift the curtain on gay fatherhood” in a reality series that would follow a group of gay dads, single and married, in New York City.
Bunim/Murry is currently casting the series and no major announcements have been made since the initial press release in December, but NPH did say “we hope that work finds us” in that Us interview.
We’re basing this on pure speculation, but you have to admit, Harris and Burtka’s cross-country move perfectly coordinates with a production schedule that began casting in December. Plus, they’d be so cute on a show about gay dads!
What do you think? Which other gay dads should join the cast?
