Harris opened up about their relationship in the bedroom during a candid interview on Howard Stern's radio show in 2008.
After he confirmed that, after four years together, marriage was on his and Burtka's minds, the Tony-winner said he didn't believe in open relationships.
"I ran into my friend Kate one day and she was with this brooding, James Dean–type guy in a leather jacket who gave me the head nod and then turned away," Harris told star held out hope. We talk on the phone at least eight times a day and text at least 25 times a day." As they say, the rest is history. "I was in love with him before he was comfortable saying it, and I think that speaks to our past experiences.
"Then I just kept seeing him on the periphery, and in turn, catching up on him, but I didn't want to be that guy who was creating some sort of romantic interference." "I was in another relationship when I met Neil and was doing the long-distance, New York–to-L. I remember saying, 'I think I love you,' and he was like, 'That's really nice,' which is not necessarily what you want to hear." Harris admitted, "I appreciated his honesty in not jumping the gun and saying something because he felt obliged to." We're guessing it didn't take long for Burtka to come around.
David Burtka is the husband of Neil Patrick Harris and the two tied the knot in September 2014.
The wedding took place in Italy with an intimate ceremony officiated by Pam Fryman, a producer and director for.
David first proposed to me five years ago on the actual street corner where we met.
It’s nice to be a part of that history now.” Burtka was starring in a broadway show at New York 54 Below, titled “Burtka, David,” a cabaret show directed by Harris.
Shortly after the twins’ births, Harris and Burtka spoke with People about the process, with Burtka revealing: Everyone has been so supportive of us having kids.
And not only do they get older and more developed and interesting, but David’s and my relationship changes too.
Harris admitted that he fell for Burtka faster than Burtka did for him, stating: I initially fell for David harder than he fell for me.
I was in love with him before he was comfortable saying it, and I think that speaks to our past experiences.
