New York - Neil Patrick Harris is engaged.

The 38-year-old actor - who plays ladies man Barney Stinson on TV's How I Met Your Mother - announced his engagement to partner David Burtka after gay marriage was made legal in New York on June 24.

He tweeted: "It PASSED! Marriage equality in NY!! Yes!! Progress!! Thank you everyone who worked so hard on this!! A historic night!
