How I Met Your Mother will return from its brief hiatus, thanks to the 2014 Winter Olympics, on Monday, which means the sprint to the series finale on March 31 will begin. Fans are eagerly anticipating the (hopefully) epic conclusion to the nine-year journey of Ted Mosby, and minor spoilers about the final episode have been leaking out for a few weeks. Now, another tidbit of information has been released about Ted's children.

The "Spoiler Chat" column at E! Online reports that fans will see Luke and Penny at different, younger ages:
"Get ready to meet the kids...at a different age! We'll see Son (David Henrie) and Daughter (Lyndsy Fonseca) at ages 4 and 6, respectively. Maybe they'll meet the mama?"
A recent HIMYM episode revealed that Ted's daughter's name is Penny and his son's name is Luke.
The "Mega Buzz" column at TV Guide recently reported that series co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas knew many aspects of the finale years ago but made an interesting change recently.
"How about who gets the last line? Co-creator Craig Thomas says that although many aspects of the finale had been decided years ago, they recently decided to give the last line to "someone you don't expect -- maybe someone you haven't even met yet." Lest we forget, the finale will show the gang past 2030."
TV Guide previously reported Thomas' words that the finale could go past 2030, as the co-creator coyly said, "Well that is the future."
Cristin Milioti, who plays The Mother, told EW.com recently that the script exists but she has not seen it. There's been discussion," she said. "It's CIA-level lockdown. Our scripts are watermarked, and it feels really cool."
