Niel Patrick Harris is a married man.

The "How I Met Your Mother" actor, 41, confirmed on Twitter that he married partner of 10 years David Burtka in an Italian wedding over the weekend.

"Guess what? @DavidBurtka and I got married over the weekend," Harris tweeted Monday morning.

"In Italy. Yup, we put the 'n' and 'd' in 'husband.'"

A rep for Harris has not yet responded to a Daily News request for confirmation.

Kelly Ripa also confirmed the wedding weekend, explaining why she didn't attend Joan Rivers' funeral in New York on Sunday.

"I went to a destination wedding — the wedding of Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka, breaking news!" she said on "Live with Kelly & Michael" Monday.

"It was a very quiet, very private, very family affair ... I probably wasn't even supposed to talk about it, no Neil said I could talk!"

Harris and Burtka have been together since 2004, and announced their engagement in 2011 when New York legalized same-sex marriage.

"David and I did propose to each other, but over five years ago!" Harris tweeted at the time, expressing excitement at being able to wed.

"We've been wearing engagement rings for ages, waiting for an available date."
