He continued, “Going on a date with you seventeen years ago? Best. Decision. Ever. Thanks for the love, and the laughs, and the life. You’re the best.”
As you know, the couple now shares two children — 10-year-old twins Harper Grace and Gideon Scott. David responded on Instagram with a cute comment, saying, “I love you more- there I said it!!”

“(Neil Patrick Harris) We started dating 17 years ago today! WOW- the best 17 years yet! You have given me the life I have dreamed of,” David wrote.
He continued, “I am constantly amazed at your parenting skills, how hard you work to provide for our family, how much we still laugh, that we haven’t lost ‘it’ in the romantic department, and most importantly that we are still madly in love.”
Unfortunately, the couple isn’t sharing the special holiday together, saying, “I am sorry we can’t be together today.” NPH is currently quarantined in Toronto while shooting a project. “I can’t wait to celebrate when you are home. I love you with all my heart,” he added.
Neil Patrick Harris opened up recently about how the COVID-19 pandemic brought their family closer together.
“I think it’s made the kids closer to each other and made us become closer to them in a much more nuanced way,” he told People. Adding, “So as challenging as it’s been, I really appreciate the good things that have come from it.”
As for the children, he said, “The kids are in fourth grade remotely, so they each have their own little school room and their own key lights and their own headphones. I feel like they’re in the school of the future — in the present! But they don’t get to go to gymnastics classes, swimming, and a lot of the social activities and play dates that they are used to.”
