Governor Andrew Cuomo legalized gay marriage this past Friday night, but before the bill was signed, Harris tweeted, “I’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, pictured together at the Tony Awards, are proud fathers of fraternal twins Harper and Gideon.

Upon hearing that the bill had passed, Neil Patrick Harris told his followers, “It passed! Marriage equality in New York! Yes! Progress! Thank you everyone who worked so hard on this. A historic night.” Congratulations to Neil and David, as well as all of the other happy couples who are now able to equally express their love for one another.
