David Burtka is thankful to be married to Neil Patrick Harris.

Burtka and Harris, 49, share fraternal twins 11-year-old, daughter, Harper, and son, Gideon, and Burtka — who also has a small part in “Uncoupled” — says they’re “amazing,” though they’ve been dealing with pre-teen behavior.

Also attending the premiere were Brooks Ashmanskas, Fran Drescher, Tisha Cambell and show creators Darren Star and Jeffrey Richman.
