The actor and his long-time partner actually have asked each other's hand in marriage years ago but only reveal it now when gay marriage is legal in New York.

Now that New York governor Andrew Cuomo has signed the state's marriage equality bill, is free to pick his wedding date. The "" star has announced on his Twitter that he and partner David Burtka have actually proposed to each other years ago.

"David and I did propose to each other, but over five years ago!" he tweeted on Saturday, June 25. "We've been wearing engagement rings for ages, waiting for an available date." Hours before, Harris begged the NY senate to vote for marriage equality, writing "I'd sure love to get married. Please, NY Senate, vote in favor of marriage equality today. My family would really appreciate it." The vote went 33-to-29 pro gay marriage.

Harris and Burtka are parents to fraternal twins, Harper and Gideon, who were born in October 2010 via a surrogate. The family recently celebrated double Father's day with a dinner in Sherman Oaks, Calif.
