You’ve met the mother. And in the series finale, Ted finally does. But before bidding farewell to How I Met Your Mother forever, we checked in with the children who have waited nine long seasons to hear their parents’ love story.
David Henrie and Lyndsy Fonseca joined PEOPLE on Twitter on Monday afternoon, answering fans’ questions live with the hashtag #AskTheKids. Though they’ve gotten less screen time than the actors playing the MacLaren’s gang, you could argue Henrie, 24, and Fonesca, 27, are the stars of the show. After all, without his kids, Ted wouldn’t have a tale to tell.
Check out our chat below, and tune in to How I Met Your Mother at 8 p.m. (ET) Monday on CBS. It’s sure to be legen – wait for it – dary.
