Neil Patrick Harris Pays Tribute to Fiance David Burtka in Drama Desk Awards Acceptance Speech

Neil Patrick Harris and his fiance David Burtka hit the red carpet at the 2014 Tony Honors Cocktail Party held at the Paramount Hotel on Monday evening (June 2) in New York City.

The 40-year-old actor won the Drama Desk Award the night before for Best Actor in a Musical for his work in Hedwig and the Angry Inch and he gave a touching tribute to his man during his acceptance speech.

“Lastly, I’d like to thank David Burtka, my fiance. We’ve been together for over ten years and when we first met I was doing a show, Cabaret, and he was Tulsa in Gypsy. We were both doing shows at the same time and my path has led us mostly to Los Angeles and it has sort of uprooted him from what he had been doing,” NPH said. “So, thank you so much for your love and for your patience and your sacrifice in all that you do. And I can’t wait for the opportunity soon when these roles get to be reversed and I get to cheer you on up here doing what you do so well.”
