Neil Patrick Harris is a multitalented singer and actor—who also happens to be ah-maz-ing in the romance department.

Take his latest Instagram post celebrating the anniversary of his first date with husband David Burtka. Showing off quite a way with words, he writes about how the couple has hardly been apart since that fortuitous outing. "My first date with David was 15 years ago today, and we’ve been nearly inseparable ever since," he writes. "I’m so, so grateful to this gorgeous man for giving me his heart, his shoulder, his strength, his lust, his laughter, his joy. He’s an actor, chef, author, singer, producer, and the most wonderful, selfless parent I’ve ever seen.

A sextuple threat, if you will. And I most certainly will. Happy 15th Anniversary, @dbelicious. You keep making all my dreams come true. #love"

Talk about swoon-worthy. The couple welcomed twins, Gideon and Harper, in 2010 and eventually married in Perugia, Italy, in 2014, surrounded by friends (including Sir Elton John), family, and their two children.

"Honeymoon phases end. They just do," Harris said in the past about keeping their relationship fresh. "I think you have to find new elements that turn you on, and not only sexually. Having kids was one of those great moments for me. Watching David become another level of person, mastering this other domain, made me look at him with a whole other set of appreciative eyes. That sort of made me re-fall in love with him."

Sounds like whatever they're doing is working. Congrats, you two—here's to at least many more happy years together.
