Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka: Getting Married!

Neil Patrick Harris and longtime partner David Burtka are planning to tie the knot now that New York has legalized gay 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 How I Met Your Mother star tweeted on Saturday (June 25).

The day before, Neil wrote he’d “sure love to get married. Please, NY Senate, vote in favor of marriage equality today. My family would really appreciate it.”

After the passage of NY’s gay marriage bill, an excited NPH 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.

  • Attention

    Why didn’t they get married in California when it was possible? Ellen did it. I smell publicity stunt.

  • Equality

    Attention Equality Haters! If you don’t like equality STFU and get the hell out of here. We are taking back California and we are coming to a state near you and there is nothing you can do to stop. NOTHING!

  • Media Needy

    @Attention: Yes they are quite enamored with publicity. No doubt!

  • clamity

    awwwwwwwwwwwww sooo cute love neil congrates

  • Candice

    @A: are you kidding me? you’re comparing gay and lesbian people to pedophiles and animals? we’re all people whether hetero or homosexual. for the record, adults can already marry children with consent. Doug Hutchinson made that clear when he married a 16 year old at the age of 51 earlier this year. how do you find it so sick that gay marriage is pulling through when a person can marry their own cousin in more states than they can marry someone of the same sex? grow up.

  • klutzy_girl


    Yes, they’ve totally been wearing the rings for five years (of which there is photographic proof!) all for a publicity stunt. Shut up.

  • Candice

    @Attention: if they did, when they got back to new york, it wouldn’t be legal there. it’d be like it never happened.

  • boston61

    I am gay but I do not think it is cool for gays to mimic straights. Of course gay couples should have all the same LEGAL rights. Just be two cool men in a relationship. You don’t have to play the same games straights do. IMHO

  • James R.

    @boston61: You are probably the most self hating poster on this site. IMHO.

  • Dennis

    Gay marriage crazy

  • Maggie


  • carrie

    @Attention: because they live in NY?

  • Danielle


    Boy you are to be pitied. They want a legal right for their love to be recognized. Nothing is wrong with that. It isn’t mimicking straights–it is asking that their love be considered equal in the eyes of their God, their friends, their family—which it most likely already is—but also in the eyes of the legal system.

    I’m not married and never plan to be as it isn’t an institution for me. BUT that said I have friends both straight and gay to whom marriage is extremely important and why shouldn’t my gay friends have the same blessings and opportunities to marry as my straight friends have?

    Congrats!! They are such a beautiful couple!

    its so cool … happy for them … time for the rest of the country to get on board.

  • Of Course publicity

    They sell their family pics with kids to a magazine! Of course it is for publicity, especially after the cheating incident. I prefer stars gay or straight who keep their private lives private. It’s none of our business!

  • Charles

    God will probably send deathly tornadoes to NY next…morals mean nothing anymore. Giving in to worldly desires is why God is trying to get people’s attention with all these natural disasters and disease. There will be more as predicted, especially with immorality becoming the norm.




    @boston61: I’m gay too and have a partner of 20 years and let me say that marriage is more than a symbol of heterosexuality. It’s also about the legal rights and protections that come for our children, our finances, social security, etc.
    I don’t want or need to be like anyone else but I do expect to have the same rights as everyone else. Maybe one day you will choose to be married, not because you want to “fit in” but because you love someone, for more than one night.


    I’m gay too an my partner of 20 years are getting married in New York this year, not because we want to be like the hetero’s but for our children and all of the legal protections and benefits that come with it. It’s fine you don’t want to be married now but maybe one day you will find you love someone for more than just for a one night stand.

    The comments on here against gay marriage is disgusting.. Get a time machine and go back to the fricken 50′s. Love is love. Shut up and get a life. Bye

  • ambiguouslygayduo

    It seems ironic how the gay community has embraced this as historic when it only passed as a shining example of special interest groups exerting their power. I wonder how they will feel when other powerful special interest groups pass laws they feel are unfair and/or “discriminating.
