Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka To Get Married After Legalization of New York Same Sex Marriage
"How I Met Your Mother" star Neil Patrick Harris and longtime boyfriend David Burtka will finally pursue wedding plans now that New York has legalized same sex marriage.
“David and I did propose to each other, but over five years ago! We’ve been wearing engagement rings for ages, waiting for an available date,” the 38-year-old actor tweeted on Saturday, June 25.
The day before that, Neil wrote “sure love to get married. Please, NY Senate, vote in favor of marriage equality today. My family would really appreciate it.”
And right after the passage of NY’s gay marriage bill, the overly excited actor tweeted, “It PASSED! Marriage equality in NY!! Yes!! Progress!! Thank you everyone who worked so hard on this!! A historic night!”
Neil and David are parents to 8-month-old twins, Harper and Gideon.
