I got married for kids: Neil Patrick Harris

 

London: 'How I Met Your Mother' star Neil Patrick Harris admits he and partner David Burtka decided to get married because their four-year-old twins, Harper and Gideon, put them under pressure.

The 41-year-old actor tied the knot with longtime boyfriend Burtka in Italy earlier this month, reportedly.

"I think when our kids got to the age when they were having reasonable conversations where they're asking lots of 'why' questions, then it seemed (important) to be able to have a real clear-cut (identity) of who their daddy is -- that he's my husband, it was easier than partner or boyfriend," he said.

But the star was also eager to commit to Burtka, 39, after more than 10 years together.

"I just wanted to be able to say nice things about David to David in front of the people that mattered the most to us. It was less about a proclamation and more about a declaration that I was able to share in front of our kids."
