After 10 years and two kids together, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka got married on Saturday.

“We happily confirm that Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka were married in Italy in an intimate ceremony surrounded by their close friends and family,” Harris’s representative tells PEOPLE.

Confirmed Harris on Twitter: “Guess what? @DavidBurtka and I got married over the weekend. In Italy. Yup, we put the ‘n’ and ‘d’ in ‘husband.’ “

One highlight of the festive evening was a special performance at the reception by Sir Elton John.

“It PASSED! Marriage equality in NY!! Yes!! Progress!!” Harris Tweeted at the time, adding, “David and I did propose to each other, but over five years ago! We’ve been wearing engagement rings for ages, waiting for an available date.”

Looks like they found one.

Royal Baby’s Name and Sex: Bookmakers Taking Bets

09/08/2014 AT 08:40 AM EDT

The bets are on!

On the same day that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared their happy news that Kate is pregnant with their second child, bookmakers are already taking wagers on everything from the child’s sex to his or her prospective name.

According to U.K bookmakers Ladbrokes, Prince George is more likely to be joined by a baby brother, with odds of 4:5 in comparison to an even money shot for a baby sister.

James (Kate’s brother’s name) is the early favorite for a first name, with odds at 6:1. Arthur, Elizabeth and Victoria are the second most likely options, at 8:1.

“The Royal Baby betting frenzy is back in full swing,” says Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes, adding “with one correct gamble already in the bag, punters are quickly reinvesting their winnings on the couple having a second son called James.”

And should be anyone be excited at the prospect of more than one baby arriving come next spring, it’s unlikely. The odds are 20:1 for twins and 100:1 for triplets!

Why Lifetime’s Brittany Murphy Movie Is a Disgrace To her Legacy

Lifetime aired its buzzed-about biopic on the late Brittany Murphy — aptly titled The Brittany Murphy Story — Saturday night. Controversy reached a fever pitch last week when Murphy’s father Angelo Bertolotti told Examiner he is “outraged” by the “hideous, unauthorized, and completely untrue” film. However, after watching the movie, he isn’t too far off-base. 

The Brittany Murphy Story is bad, and that’s an understatement. The film is plagued by poor acting (yes, even for Lifetime), choppy time jumps, and tonal inconsistencies. If we’re to believe Lifetime, Murphy (played by Amanda Fuller) was a too-trusting, insecure victim to paparazzi and shady con-artists namely, her husband Simon Monjack who died five months after Murphy in the same room from the same cause. The film is more exploitative than exploratory. Is any of this true? We might never know, but fans certainly shouldn’t be happy about it.

Below we broke down our seven largest grievances with The Brittany Murphy Story. They range from trivial (someone please explain the wig chosen for the “Alicia Silverstone” character)  to important   are we seriously not going to discuss Oscar-winning films like Girl, Interrupted (1999) or 8 Mile (2002)?  Take a look, and let us know what you think about the network’s latest biopic in the comments below.

The acting is dreadful. 

It’s Lifetime, so the bar wasn’t set too high, but the performances in The Brittany Murphy Story do not even pass for “so bad, they’re good.” They’re just really bad. The reaction Murphy gives when she finds out she’s been cast in Clueless (her big break) is so tepid and awkward, it’s like she found out Applebee’s added a new soup/salad combination to its menu. “Oh, that’s great.”

Some of Murphy’s greatest film roles go unacknowledged. 

We understand Lifetime had a time limit and couldn’t give all Murphy’s movies attention, but we have bones to pick with the ones ignored (and highlighted, for that matter). Sin City (2005), Girl, Interrupted, and 8 Mile — three of Murphy’s most acclaimed works — are ignored completely. There’s also no mention of fan favorites like Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999) or Riding in Cars with Boys (2001). But the movie that gets the most attention? 2003′s Just Married, co-starring Ashton Kutcher. The two briefly dated after the project, but still: It wasn’t her best work nor a pivotal part of her life. We wanted to learn more about her relationship with Eminem!
