Neil Patrick Harris Says Kids Are Already Showbiz Savvy

Jon Kopaloff/Contributor/FilmMagic/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Neil Patrick Harris' kids may be watching their father on TV this Sunday when he hosts the Primetime Emmy Awards, because his twins, who turn 3 in October, apparently get a behind-the-scenes look into the entertainment business when daddy goes to work.

"They've come to set. They know the crew. They got to come to the Tony rehearsals and watch the Cinderella dancers with all of their finest gownery and do their dancing, which was cool," Harris tells People magazine.

Harris is father to Harper Grace and Gideon Scott with fiancé David Burtka.

The 40-year-old How I Met Your Mother star said his kids love the business, but he's still unsure if they'll follow in his and Burtka's footsteps.

"They love to run around and dance and they're encouraged to dress up in princess outfits and stuff," he says, "but they're also young, so they run up and down aisles and think that's as equally as amusing."

CBS is set to broadcast the 2013 Primetime Emmy Awards live on Sunday, September 22 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
