Neil Patrick Harris is set to marry his boyfriend David Burtka.
The actor, who plays party-loving Barney Stinson on the hit comedy How I Met Your Mother, announced via Twitter that the pair would be tying the knot after New York's state senate voted to legalise same-sex marriage.
"It PASSED! Marriage equality in NY!! Yes!! Progress!! Thank you everyone who worked so hard on this!! A historic night," he wrote.
"David and I did propose to each other, but over five years ago! We've been wearing engagement rings for ages, waiting for an available date."
Neil - who also made an Emmy-winning performance on Glee as former Glee Club star Bryan Ryan - has been dating David since 2004.
The pair are fathers to twin boy and girl Gideon and Harper, born by surrogate in October last year.
