The 'How I Met Your Mother' actor took to Intstagram and uploaded a picture of him along with Burtka accompanied by a heartfelt message
Neil Patrick Harris and husband David Burtka are radiating relationship goals right now on social media as they celebrated 15 years since they met and went on their first date.
The actor, producer, and magician who is prominently known for his role in 'How I met Your Mother' took to Instagram and uploaded a picture of him along with Burtka in a hot water lake.
Harris captioned the picture with a heartfelt message for Burtka, revealing how grateful he is to have him in his life.
"My first date with David was 15 years ago today, and we’ve been nearly inseparable ever since. I’m so, so grateful to this gorgeous man for giving me his heart, his shoulder, his strength, his lust, his laughter, his joy," he captioned the picture.
He added, "He’s an actor, chef, author, singer, producer, and the most wonderful, selfless parent I’ve ever seen. A sextuple threat, if you will. And I most certainly will. Happy 15th Anniversary, @dbelicious. You keep making all my dreams come true. #love."
Harris and Burtka have been together since 2004 and welcomed twins via surrogacy in 2010. They finally got married in 2014 and have been inseparable since.
Talking about how they met for the first time, Burtka in an interview with Goldcoast revealed, “I was performing in the Sam Mendes version of 'Gypsy on Broadway' when I ran into Neil on the street. He was doing the Mendes version of Cabaret at the time."
“I wasn’t a big Doogie Howser fan — I had probably seen it once or twice when I was growing up — so I gave him a, ‘Hey, what’s up, nice to meet you,’ and that was really it. I thought it would be nice to know him, but I didn’t think in a million years I’d start dating him.”
To celebrate the occasion, Burtka also took to his Instagram handle and uploaded a picture with the hashtag "#15yearschallenge." The picture was a collage of the happy couple 15 years ago and a picture of them taken recently.
Burtka captioned his post, "15 years ago Neil Patrick Harris and I met on the street. From that day he has made my world a better place. Thank you @nph for the best years of my life. I can't believe how fast 15 years have gone. Happy Anniversary! I can't wait to keep on laughing, playing and loving for years to come. #15yearchallenge#lifeisaparty," to which Harris replied saying, "You’re the sweetest! I love you!"
