Neil Patrick Harris is rumored to be thinking about taking a break from Hollywood.

The How I Met Your Mother star recently announced that he and partner David Burtka are expecting twins and now PopEater's Rob Shuter reports that the 37-year-old actor is thinking about leaving showbiz to focus on his family.

A friend claims that Neil is "thinking about taking a break" from Hollywood and is "moving from Hollywood to New York City to be a full-time daddy."

The clues to Neil's retirement are allegedly in the real estate: Neil is reportedly looking to buy a new apartment in the Big Apple and Shuter reports that he spotted Neil looking at a $3.5 million apartment.

Of course, having a residence in New York isn't uncommon for Hollywood actors, particularly ones like Neil who occasionally work on Broadway. (The Emmy-nominated star appeared in Assassins in 2004.)

If Harris is considering leaving Hollywood, he hasn't showed any signs of slowing down his career: Neil recently directed his Beastly co-star Vanessa Hudgens in a special production of Rent at the Hollywood Bowl and he is nominated for an Emmy for his guest role on Glee.

Watch a video of Neil singing "Dream On" with Matthew Morrison on Glee below:
