American actor Neil Patrick Harris, who is best known for playing the role of Barney Stinson in the popular TV show 'How I Met Your Mother' has revealed that he and his family, including husband David Burtka and children Gideon and Harper, had all tested positive for the novel coronavirus during the early stages of the pandemic but recovered in a few days.

In an episode of the 'Today Show,' Neil Patrick Harris stated, "It happened very early (in the pandemic), like late March, early April. We were doing our best before, and I thought I had the flu, and I didn't want to be paranoid about it. And then I lost my sense of taste and smell, which was a big indicator, so we holed up. It was not pleasant, but we got through it and have antibodies and are feeling good. We want to make sure everyone's doing their best to slow this down every way possible, for sure." Post their recovery, the family had been using their time to bond as a birthday tribute to Neil Patrick Harris, based on a statement by the actor's husband David Burtka.

"I want to wish my incredible husband @nph a spectacular Birthday! Every celebration we spend together gets better and better. I am grateful for this quarantine because we've actually gotten to spend more quality time and it's brought us closer together. Thank you @NPH for being a fantastic father, a perfect spouse and an overall magnificent man," Burtka had written on Instagram in mid-June.
