Over the weekend the State of New York erupted in celebration with the legalization of gay marriage and couples are ready to start tying the knot, including Neil Patrick Harris and longtime boyfriend, David Burtka! The How I Met Your Mother star tweeted on Saturday saying, “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.” Of course this isn’t the first sign that Harris has given us to make us think a wedding is in his near future. Before the New York state senate and Governor Andrew Cuomo legalized gay marriage on Friday night, he tweeted that he’d “sure love to get married. Please, New York Senate, vote in favor of marriage equality today. My family would really appreciate it.”
Harris and Burtka’s family doubled last year when the couple became the parents of fraternal twins, Harper and Gideon, in October 2010 via surrogate. So let the fabulous wedding planning begin. Yes, the passing of this law will go down as a great historic event that further proves to the rest of America that New York does it better!
