Cheers to Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka! The longtime partners, who've been together for 10 years, were married in Italy on September 6 in a secret wedding.

"We happily confirm that Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka were married in Italy in an intimate ceremony surrounded by their close friends and family," Neil's rep tells People.

The Tony winner and How I Met Your Mother actor further confirmed the happy news on Twitter when he posted a photo of their ceremony. "Guess what? @DavidBurtka and I got married over the weekend. In Italy. Yup, we put the 'n' and 'd' in 'husband,'" he wrote.

Neil and David, a chef and an actor, both wore custom Tom Ford tuxedos, and How I Met Your Mother director Pam Fryman officiated the ceremony. The couple's two children, fraternal twins Harper Grace and Gideon Scott, were also at the wedding, and Elton John also gave a special performance at the reception!

Live! With Kelly and Michael host Kelly Ripa was also a wedding guest and revealed an adorable story about Gideon on the show.

"Harper was going to be the flower girl and Gideon was going to be the ring bearer, and he said, 'I don't want to be the ring bearer!' And they said, 'Okay, well, what do you want to be?' And he said, 'I want to be the orange boy.' And he passed out oranges to everybody as he came down the aisle. He came up with it on his own. He had his little tux and his top hat and he was passing out oranges," Kelly said.

Neil and David have been engaged since 2007, waiting for the Marriage Equality Act to pass in New York. When it did in 2011, Neil tweeted, "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."
