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.
