by at . Comments

It took about 30 seconds for How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris, and longtime boyfriend David Burtka, to take advantage of New York's brand new Marriage Equality Bill:

The two are engaged!

Harris and Burtka have been together since 2004 and are the parents of twins. Here is how they announced their plans to marry via Twitter:

The exciting news also gives us an excuse to post Harris' concluding rap from this year's Tony Awards. It was incredibly awesome.

We wish this pair, and all gay couples that now have the same right as heterosexual couples in New York, the very best of luck!




never knew he was gay! Cuz he plays a womanizer role.


Congrats NPH!


I don't think this is real, they have been engaged and wearing rings for 5 years just waiting for the day when they can finally marry and, this guy spelled prOpose wrong.


Blessed for them, and even more blessed for their children.


I'm happy for them! Love is love. If we can have a white and a black marry than we can have a man and a man or a woman and a woman marry. I'm not gay, but I believe you be able to marry the love of your life no matter what gender or color they may be. I hope other states decide to allow gay marriage now..we'll see.


How very wonderful that a couple that wants to marry actually can. Their sexuality shouldnt matter, the fact that they want the legal commitment does. Continued happiness for the couple!
