Everybody say hello to Gidget!

The adorable pup with the playful name is the newest member of Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka's family. The 6-month-old wire terrier mix was a gift for the couple's twins, son Gideon and daughter Harper, who celebrated their 6th birthday in October.

Burtka took to Instagram earlier this week to share a collage of photos of the whole family loving on their sweet little ball of fluff.

"Introducing the newest member of our family GIDGET!," Burtka wrote in the photo's caption.

The 41-year-old actor and chef went on to thank the North Shore Animal League, the world's largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization, who, People reports, helped match Gidget with their family.

Aside from their brand-new dog, Gideon and Harper enjoyed another big milestone this week — their very first football game!

On Sunday, Harris, 43, shared a photo of the kids enjoying a New York Giants game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

"First football game for these two (not quite) giants. Go Big Blue! #nygiants," the "How I Met Your Mother" alum captioned the photo.

Congratulations on your big week, Gideon and Harper!
