“I was always around when he was around, hoping the stars would align,” Harris says. “When we all hung out for the first time – I was invited by [our mutual friend] Kate to an American Idol viewing party – I just stammered around him. I couldn’t take my eyes off him.”

“I thought he was adorable, though, with these amazing blue eyes that are just hypnotizing to me,” Burtka says. “I ended up breaking with my boyfriend, and a week later, Neil and I had a date. We started hanging out every single night, and after three months, it was just non-stop. We talk on the phone at least eight times a day and text at least 25 times a day. He’s my lifeline, in an amazing way. Without him, I can’t breathe.”
