Neil Patrick Harris has denied that he is splitting from husband David Burtka.

It was reported by tabloids earlier this month that Burtka and Harris – who are parents to twin sons Gideon and Harper – are living separately and seeing other people.

However, the How I Met Your Mother star has spoken out to deny the reports.

He said: “I couldn’t be more in love with my family, any reports to the contrary are woefully mistaken.”

He also posted a picture on Instagram of Burtka with the pair’s sons.

In a recent interview, Harris revealed he would regularly sleep with women before he came out at gay.

He said: “In high school all my friends were sleeping with girls, and it just seemed like that’s what one did.

“So therefore that’s what I did, but it left me feeling unsettled, as if I had somehow done it wrong.

“That’s not a good feeling. But now I think it’s easier to avoid that fate.

“Today, it’s cool to see a happy lesbian couple who are high school juniors.”

Earlier this year, Harris said he “loves” the fact that, despite him being gay, women still want to tie the knot with him. 

He recently finished playing a trans rock singer, in the Broadway production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
