In the wake of the legalization of gay marriage in New York last week, "How I Met Your Mother" star Neil Patrick Harris he and partner David Burka are making plans to tie the knot.

The 38-year old actor took to Twitter and posted, "It PASSED! Marriage equality in NY!! Yes!! Progress!! Thank you everyone who worked so hard on this!! A historic night! 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."

Harris and Burka have been together since 2004 and are the parents of twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace. The babies were born via surrogate.
