Neil Patrick Harris is engaged to his longtime partner, David Burtka. And, apparently, he has been for awhile.
“I'd sure love to get married. Please, NY Senate, vote in favor of marriage equality today. My family would really appreciate it,” Harris tweeted, shortly before New York on Friday became the sixth state, plus the District of Columbia, to allow gay marriage.
Burtka tweeted to a follower that he and Harris had proposed to each other, which sent many fans into a congratulatory tizzy. But, as Harris later explained, they’ve been engaged for years:
