Yes, you read that right. The “How I Met Your Mother” star Neil Patrick Harris is now married to his partner for ten years, David Burtka. The two wed in Italy over the weekend, Sept. 6, 2014. Read on to learn more about this scoop.

Harris’ rep confirmed the happy news on People.

“We happily confirm that Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka were married in Italy in an intimate ceremony surrounded by their close friends and family,” said the representative to People.

Meanwhile, Harris himself tweeted a photo of him and Burtka with the message: “Guess what? @DavidBurtka and I got married over the weekend. In Italy. Yup, we put the ‘n’ and ‘d’ in ‘husband’.”

Their twins, Harper and Gideon, who are turning four on Oct. 5, 2014, participated in their parents’ wedding. Sir Elton John also performed in the said event. Moreover, Pam Fryman, director of “How I Met Your Mother” officiated the wedding.

Although the two have been engaged for five years already when gay marriage was passed in New York in 2011, one can sense Harris’ joy when he tweeted his reaction about the news.

During this time, the couple has not chosen a date yet when their union will take place. But Harris emphasized that it will happen soon.

“Certainly, we have children and marriage is an appropriate thing to do [as] a part of their well being, so I’m sure it will be inevitable—and awesome!” remarked Harris in the E! Online report.

The news of their marriage eventually dismissed the rumor of the couple’s separation. In fact, instead of dwelling on the rumor, Harris posted a photo of his beautiful family on Instagram. He captioned it with: “I couldn’t be more in love with my family. Any reports to the contrary are woefully mistaken. #grateful.”

Congratulations Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka!
