It’s the How I Met Your Mother reunion a decade in the making.
David Henrie, who played the future son of Josh Radnor’s Ted Mosby’s on the CBS sitcom, had a run-in with his TV pa — and he had the good sense to document the legendary encounter. (Fun fact: Henrie and Radnor never actually shared the screen on HIMYM.)

“Found my father,” Henrie cheekily wrote on Instagram Friday, beneath the photo in question (which you can see above), before adding, “Finally.”
Henrie, who is also known for his starring role as Justin Russo on Disney Channel’s Wizards of Waverly Place, appeared alongside TV sis Lyndsy Fonseca, aka Penny, throughout HIMYM‘s nine-year run as Ted narrated the story of how he met their mother.
Two years ago, series co-creator Carter Bays — who served as an EP on the relatively short-lived Hulu spinoff How I Met Your Father — expressed regret over certain creative decisions that were made on HIMYM.
“I won’t go into specifics,” Bays said back in 2021, “but I’ll just say I would love to go into an edit room and go George Lucas on this thing, and remove certain stuff I really wish wasn’t in there and I bet nobody would miss.”
Bays indicated at the time that his commentary followed a recent viewing of Season 3’s 18th episode, “Rebound Bro,” in which Neil Patrick Harris’ Barney helped sad sack Randy Wharmpess (recurring guest star Will Forte) pick up women at MacLaren’s. In order to improve Randy’s small talk, Barney enlisted the help of a reluctant Robin, threatening to leak a sex tape of the two of them if she didn’t comply.
