The 38-year-old actor - who plays ladies man Barney Stinson on TV show' How I Met Your Mother' - announced his engagement to partner David Burtka after gay marriage was made legal in New York on Friday.

He tweeted: "It PASSED! Marriage equality in NY!! Yes!! Progress!! Thank you everyone who worked so hard on this!! A historic night!

Neil had been vocal about his desire to marry David, writing on twitter: "Please vote yes on marriage equality. It'd mean a lot to me and my family.

"I'd sure love to get married. Please, NY Senate, vote in favor of marriage equality today. My family would really appreciate it."
