Gay dads Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka have been named Couple of the Year by gay entertainment website

“Together for six years, they clearly adore each other, which is evident in just about every photo you see of these two actors,” Greg Hernandez wrote in a blog post announcing the winning couple.

“Whether they know it or not, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka are one of the most high-profile examples of why same-sex marriage should be legal in every state in America,” he added.

Harris, the star of CBS' How I Met Your Mother, and Burtka, an actor-turned-chef, are involved in a California domestic partnership.

The pair welcomed twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace, who were born via a surrogate, on October 12.

During an appearance on ABC's daytime talk show The Talk, Harris joked that the couple is ready to drug the crying babies: “At this point, we are like whatever it takes – a shot of whiskey, whatever – just stop fussing.”
