It just shows how times have changed when you hear the news that a same sex couple got married, and you’re confused because you thought they’d already gotten hitched. However the news has come through that the always wonderful Neil Patrick Harris & David Burtka got married in Italy over the weekend.
Harris announced the news with the slightly cheesy tweet, ‘Guess what? @DavidBurtka and I got married over the weekend. In Italy. Yup, we put the ‘n’ and ‘d’ in ‘husband’.’
And just to make sure things were suitably gay, Elton John performed at the wedding reception. The ceremony itself was officiated by How I Met Your Mother producer and director Pam Fryman.
Same sex marriage is not recognised in Italy (they don’t even have civil unions), but we’re sure NPH and his new hubby have got that sorted, something that’s now possible due to the federal recognition of gay marriage in the US.
Only a few weeks ago the couple were having to deny tabloid rumours that they’d split up – but now they’ve shown that nothing could be further from the truth.
