Neil Patrick Harris talked babies and love on ‘The Talk’ on Monday, and watching him re-create baby sign language could be one of the cutest things ever.

‘Fatherhood’s hilarious,’ he said, especially now that brother and sister Gideon and Harper, his twins with partner David Burtka, have turned 1 and are a bit more communicative.


They know some sign language -- how to say ‘more,’ for example, and ‘I’m done’ -- but there’s one situation in which no sign is necessary: ‘Daddy, I have a dirty diaper.’

‘I don’t know that you need a sign for that,’ Harris explained, deadpan. ‘You pretty much know right away. That reveals itself.’

NPH explained a recent semi-scandalous quote in Out magazine in which he said some days he’s madly in love with Burtka, and other days he questions whether their relationship will work out and is meant to be.

He didn’t want to make it sound like their relationship was perfect every minute of every day, he said. Eight years into what he called a healthy relationship, ‘you need to be constantly redefining what that means ... with that comes moments when you’re not so in love with each other. I think that’s pretty normal.

‘But we’re in a super awesome place right now; he’s a great dad and a great guy.’
