Actor Neil Patrick Harris has said he “loves” the fact that, despite him being gay, women still want to tie the knot with him.

The 40-year-old and his long term partner David Burtka, have three-year-old twins, but that hasn’t stopped women from wanting to get with the star, he claims.

The ‘How I met your Mother’, actor said in an interview with OUT magazine: “I’ve found that a lot of girls have no issue with me being gay… They still want to marry me. And I love that.”

The star will appear on ‘How I met your Mother’ as Barney Stinson for the last time on 31 March.

He moves on to Broadway, where he will perform in ‘Hedwig and the angry inch’.

Harris last year introduced a television broadcast of the Harvey Milk biopic, ‘Milk’, in order to mark the first day of 2013 Gay Pride month.
