Neil Patrick Harris discusses family life during an appearance on Thursday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show”.

The 47-year-old, who shares “miraculous” 10-year-old twins Harper and Gideon with husband David Burtka, jokes: “Ellen, I’m free!” as he reveals the youngsters have returned to school for in-person learning amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The actor tells the host, “They’re in school, all of a sudden. We’ve been in remote school since March and then the school [recently] opened up.

“As of last week, they were able to be [back] — with all the protocols, the masks, the six feet apart, getting tested all the time — but they’re in actual school.”
