Marriage-hater to get married

I have mentioned men who claim that marriage is a bad deal, but now one of the advocates is defecting:
Naturally, there have been accusations of hypocrisy. How could someone who has denounced marriage in strong terms turn around and get engaged to a woman?
The woman is a single mom. I guess marriage has some advantages after all.

Here is the Doogie Howser guy, talking marriage:
[Neil Patrick] Harris, 40, is the highly praised song-and-dance emcee of this year’s Tony Awards and plays the womanizing Barney Stinson on CBS’ How I Met Your Mother. However, fatherhood is his most important role. His twin toddlers, daughter Harper and son Gideon, who will be 3 in October, are never far from his thoughts.

Especially today, which kicked off at 6:15 a.m. “I got to wake them up and get them dressed and be that guy, which is unusual,” Harris says, sounding proud of himself. “David does that more often.”

David is actor/chef David Burtka, 38, his fiance. The kids, who were born via surrogate, call Harris “Poppa” and Burtka “Daddy.”
I wonder if the "fiance" is also a legal father to the kids. Or what the child custody fight would look like if the wedding plans fail.
