Some dubious rumors of a spat that led to a dis-engagement between Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka have been laid to rest, now that NPH took to Twitter to state their relationship—which includes twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace—is “all good.”
“The Nat Enq is cray cray. We’ve never had a wedding date, just engaged (Prop 8 and all),” he wrote. “We’re on a cruise as I write. He’s rad. All good.
NPH and David announced they were engaged in 2011, also on Twitter.
“David and I did propose to each other, but over five years ago!” he Tweeted at the time. “We’ve been wearing engagement rings for ages, waiting for an available date.”
Was there a fight? Who knows. But as David Burtka told you last February:
"I don’t want people to think we’re a perfect couple. Nothing’s perfect. A relationship is work and it changes. And you go with the changes. It’s more good times than bad times, but it’s not always good. You have to overcome those issues and move on. We have a really great recipe for a wonderful relationship, but we don’t want to be the poster boys for gay relationships. We’re not trying to pretend that we are perfect. We’re just trying -- in a good, positive, loving way -- to live our lives."
And that sounds just about right.
