David Burtka and Neil Patrick Harris have tied the knot

How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris has finally married his partner of 10 years, David Burtka, in a surprise wedding in Europe.

The actor announced the news on Twitter, stating: “Guess what? @DavidBurtka and I got married over the weekend. In Italy. Yup, we put the ‘n’ and ‘d’ in ‘husband’.”

He also posted a picture of the two love-birds silhouetted against the sky during the ceremony. The couple reportedly wore matching Tom Ford tuxedos.

The two men have been dating since 2004 and are raising three-year-old twins, Gideon Scott, a boy, and Harper Grace, a girl, both of whom took part in the wedding.

US talk show host Kelly Ripa, who attended the wedding, spoke about the nuptials on Live! With Kelly and Michael on Monday.

She described the event as a “a beautiful family affair” in a rented castle in Perugia, Italy, which featured Elton John performing and fireworks.
