When news broke that the state of New York had approved a gay marriage bill, Neil Patrick Harris was one of the first gay celebrities to announce that he and his partner David Burtka were engaged!
With Harris and Burtka being fathers to fraternal twins, Gideon and Harper, fans expected them to marry as soon as the law went into effect. After all, with children involved, marriage gives the family a more unified feeling.
But don’t think so fast. Harris tweeted this message on June 27, “Dear media: Just because David and I will soon be able to marry in NY, doesn’t mean we are actively planning a wedding. Cart before horse.”
Could this be a ploy to divert the media? Just two days before that message he had said, “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 which is it, Neil? Are you getting married sooner or later? Either way, Gideon and Harper have awesome dads who love them very much. And that’s all that matters!
