Neil Patrick Harris might be a popular actor, but he is also a doting father. Recently, the actor opened up on how much his kids enjoy going on vacations and their love for traveling.


Harris's two children, Harper Grace and Gideon Scott, whom he shares with husband David Burtka, have grown up to enjoy traveling with their famous dad, especially when it involves a vacation.

The famous movie star revealed that his kids have come to love their yearly vacations at the Orlando resort during Christmas time and are struck by the incredible architectural designs of the place.

Watching his kids get blown away by a beautiful sight is something the loving dad would love to see as often as possible. Patrick revealed that his kids have been traveling with him and his partner since they were toddlers.

The "How I Met Your Mother" star explained that traveling provides his kids the time to explore new things and expand their minds. It's an overall thrilling experience for the family.


Despite an extremely busy schedule, being a doting dad tops the list of Patrick's priorities. The actor often talks about the bond he shares with his little ones and how they make him want to be better.

He arrived in the country to prepare for the shoot of a holiday movie but was subjected to mandatory isolation.


The 47-year-old created a funny moment during an appearance on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" where he exclaimed that he was a free man following the return of his 10-year-old twins to school.

The duo had resumed in-person learning for the first time while giving the actor the much-needed time to breathe in some fresh air. Patrick noted that his kids' returned to school, and all the safety measures were being observed to ensure that no one was endangered, especially during a global crisis like this.


While he admitted that he was glad to see his children leave the house, the soft-hearted dad also confessed to missing his kids and looked forward to having them back home.

Spending the lockdown together was a mixture of fun and confusion for Patrick and his partner, who constantly had to figure out ways to keep their 10-year-olds amused and happy.


The good side of the coin was that the lockdown helped the family bond better and improved their relationship. The good from the lockdown far outweighed any disadvantage the actor must have felt.

Patrick, who is also an author, and his family had to battle for their health after it was revealed that they had tested positive for the deadly virus that has claimed the lives of millions.

The father of two was glad to see him and his family nursed back to health, and since then, he has taken more precautions and even received a second dosage of the vaccine, which he shared on his Instagram.

The actor was also forced to quarantine in a Toronto hotel. He arrived in the country to prepare for the shoot of a holiday movie but was subjected to mandatory isolation.
