  2. Just a clarification:

    David and I proposed to each other over five years ago. We've been wearing rings (albeit on our right hands) for a while now. We are both elated over the news in NY, but didn't just pop the question(s) last night...

    Happy Pride!

  4. Omg! That's him right here!
    Congratulations anyways! I remember an interview a couple of years ago where you mentioned you visited this blog, and actually spelled it out so that people would get it right.
    Man, this is good.

  5. Thanks for the clarification NPH ;) But here's the real question everyone's dying to know the answer to: when are you scheduling the wedding???

  11. Please update this story. NPH has clarified that they were engaged five years ago, and the proposals occurred then. Apparently, Burtka mistweeted.

  12. Congratulations narcissistic celebrities who are never content simply to be a part of something important but must always strategize some way of shoving their way onto the stage!

    Nonetheless, mazel!

  19. Congratulations to the couple. Do they live in NY or moving to another state that will honor their marriage? I hope their marriage will become valid in CA soon too, so they can enjoy the same rights my husband and I have since 2008.
