With the recent news of Barry Manilow’s marriage to long-time manager Gary Kief, we’ve decided to compile a list of Hollywood’s most prominent married gay couples. These powerful couples have made tremendous strides for the LGBT community. Are there any powerful gay celebrity couples missing from our list?

1. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi

The famed talk show host and the Australian actress first met backstage at an awards show in 2004. Their relationship allowed Rossi to publicly discuss her sexual orientation, because she had never admitted to being gay before. The pair became engaged in 2007 and wed the following year at their Beverly Hills home. Rossi and DeGeneres who both have thriving entertainment careers have openly stated that they don’t wish to have any children.

2. Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka

The How I Met Your Mother actor met the Broadway star in 2004, when Burtka appeared on seven episodes of the hit show. However, Harris did not publicly acknowledge his sexual orientation until 2006. The pair welcomed twins born via surrogate in October 2010. In 2011, following the passage of the Marriage Equality Act in New York, Harris and Burtka announced their engagement, stating that they had proposed to each other five years earlier but kept the engagement secret until same-sex marriage became legal. Burtka and Harris married in Italy in September 2014. The happy family of four lives in Harlem, New York.
