In an interview with USA Today
Neil revealed that parenting is getting less “complicated” as his twins grow older.

“The first year with them was complicated. They were crying a lot,” he said.

“The older they get, the more I love being a dad. Now that they’re talking, I’m really loving the camp counselor end of parenting. I’m all about reasoning. If they fall and are okay but crying, [my partner] David will be the hugger, and I’ll be the ‘Show me where it hurts; let’s talk about it’ one. I come from a family of lawyers, so explanation is crucial.”

But he can be fun too!

“We do circus tricks together,” he shared. “I love reading books to them … I use different voices.”
