Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka are getting ready to mark their first Christmas as new dads.

So what will two-month-old twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace be getting from Santa? Read on to find out what Harris just told us...

"It's fun," Harris says of celebrating the holidays with the babies. "I'm very excited."

Even so, that doesn't mean he and Burtka are going to spoil the little ones: "They don't know how to focus on anything, so presents would be a bit out of their grasp," Harris explains.

We chatted with the How I Met Your Mother star yesterday in L.A. at Spike TV's Video Game Awards, which he hosted. As y'all aready know, he's also hosted the Tonys and the Emmys, among other awards shows.

Advice for first-time Academy Awards hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco? "I don't think [they] need any advice from anyone," he said. "They're at the top of their games regardless of what they do and have proved themselves over and over. They are great choices."

What about Harris hosting the Oscars someday? He laughed, "I don't think my movie cred is what it should be."

Don't cut yourself too short, Mr. Harris. We think you'd do pretty well yourself hosting Hollywood's biggest night of the year.
