David Burtka & Neil Patrick HarrisCan you say fabulous wedding of the year? Yep, now that New York passed the Marriage Equality Bill, it looks like Neil Patrick Harris and his longtime partner David Burtka can finally make honest men of each other -- Neil announced via Twitter that they are already engaged. Hooray, the twins' dads can finally get married! It was never that the couple didn't want to be married, of course, it just wasn't made legal until last night.
It is so bright out here as we emerge from the Dark Ages. Bright and beautiful.
Harris tweeted his joy about the passage of the bill last night along with tons of other celebrities, but he and Burtka appear to be the first to announce an impending marriage. I mean, if we take this tweet to heart: "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."
So when's the big day? Word is same-sex couples can tie the knot in about 30 days. Who's the wedding planner? Will there be show tunes? What designer will the grooms wear -- or more importantly, what will twins Gideon and Harper wear?
In my heart of hearts, it seems impossible that we have waited this long to legalize marriage for guys like Harris and Burtka. How in the world did it take this long? I'm so glad the day has finally come.
Congratulations on your engagement (assuming that tweet was your formal engagement announcement), Harris and Burtka. You've always deserved this, and I'm so happy that the world has finally wised up so you can finally make your love official to one another.
