Whether you know his name or not, everyone’s talking about the star who took part in the first episode of “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!” Tuesday night. Even the president of the United States knows all about it!
Who is Neil Patrick Harris’ new fiancé?
For those who don’t know who NPH is, you should very soon. The actor has been an integral part of our popular culture for years, especially with his role as Barney Stinson in “How I Met Your Mother” which became a phenomenon for its eight seasons.
Now he’s turning his focus to reality TV, with a steamy episode that featured Harris as both a good ol’ boy Texan and a more wholesome good ole boy, named Zack, which saw the pair flirting like crazy while hiding in the bushes, first begging for help to get NPH’s “ass out of jail” then when they got there, he promptly gave her a peck on the cheek before escaping with her into the woods and professing his love in the most adorable way imaginable.
For those of you who aren’t really ready to commit to the Thomspon family band, don’t worry, most of our country will fall in love with Harris all over again while watching the clip below. And for those of you planning to write him off because of his irrepressible charm, please remember he has a pretty contagious laugh.
So, who is NPH’s fiancé?
Harris has been in a relationship with David Burtka for eight years and they have twin babies together, who were born in May of 2014.
They started dating after meeting on the set of “How I Met Your Mother,” which was Burtka’s first job. They both played a constant tug-of-war, at times nursing their love for each other, and other times claiming, that if they were to split up, it would be for the best.
Thanks in part to Harris, they both came out to the public and addressed issues of the LGBTQ community, going on to grace the cover of TIME magazine in 2010 alongside Ellen DeGeneres.
Harris’ playwright brother is also married to Victoria, an actress, despite the fact that he is completely infertile. Congratulations, Neil!
