Actor Neil Patrick Harris married his long-term partner David Burtka in Italy over the weekend (06-07Sep14).

The How I Met Your Mother star confirmed the news in a post on Twitter.com on Monday (08Sep14) and shared a picture of the happy couple exchanging vows.


He added in a caption, "Guess what? David Burtka and I got married over the weekend. In Italy. Yup, we put the 'n' and 'd' in 'husband'."


The actor and his partner tied the knot on Saturday (06Sep14) and wore Tom Ford tuxedos for the ceremony, which was officiated by How I Met Your Mother producer/director Pam Fryman, according to E! News.


Reports suggest the couple's longtime friend Sir Elton John performed at the reception.


Harris and Burtka became parents when they welcomed twins Harper and Gideon via surrogate in October, 2010, and they announced their engagement the following year (11).
