Neil Patrick Harris cheered New York’s move to make gay marriage legal, revealing that he and partner David Burtka have been engaged and would love to have a wedding.
‘David and I did propose to each other, but over five years ago!’ the ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star tweeted Saturday. ‘We’ve been wearing engagement rings for ages, waiting for an available date.’
Harris was vocal on Twitter before and after the landmark vote Friday, posting, ‘I’d sure love to get married. Please, NY Senate, vote in favor of marriage equality today. My family would really appreciate it,’ followed by an ecstatic, ‘It PASSED! Marriage equality in NY!! Yes!! Progress!! Thank you everyone who worked so hard on this!! A historic night!’
Joking with People in December, he said the callus from his ring was hurting on his right hand, then gestured to his left hand and added, ‘It’d be nice to move the ring over here someday.’
Now he can.
