We're increasing our dad count on Mom Brain with David Burtka! He's an actor, chef, father of twins, and the husband of Neil Patrick Harris. You've probably seen him in films like "Dance-Off", "A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas", the series "How I Met Your Mother", "American Horror Story," and much more. He has also been a judge for "Beat Bobby Flay", "Top Chef Masters" and "Worst Cooks in America." His new cookbook is titled Life Is a Party: Deliciously Doable Recipes to Make Every Day a Celebration.

In this episode, David discusses fatherhood, marriage, and relearning math through his kids. Also, the incredible story of how his twins were conceived with an egg donor, a surrogate, and both his and Neil's own DNA. Plus, David talks about the elaborate imagination that goes into every meal in their table, and why fun is always on the agenda in their household.
