Neil Patrick Harris fell in love with David Burtka all over again after they had children.

The 'How I Met Your Mother' star, who welcomed twins, Gideon and Harper, into the world in 2010 via a surrogate mother, says watching his fiancé, 39, interact with their son and daughter has made him appreciate David more.

Speaking about the secret to their long-lasting relationship, the 41-year-old star told the September issue of Glamour magazine: ''I think you have to find new elements that turn you on, and not only sexually. Having kids was one of those great moments for me.

''Watching David become another level of person, mastering this other domain, made me look at him with a whole other set of appreciative eyes. That sort of made me re-fall in love with him.''

Neil, who confirmed he is gay in 2006, also admits he felt ''unsettled'' during sexual encounters with women when he was younger.

He said: ''In high school all my friends were sleeping with girls, and it just seemed like that's what one did. So therefore that's what I did, but it left me feeling unsettled, as if I had somehow done it wrong. That's not a good feeling.''

He added: ''But now I think it's easier to avoid that fate. Today, it's cool to see a happy lesbian couple who are high school juniors. Better that than have those two girls marry people they're not attracted to, have three kids, and then come out when they're 50.''
