This terrific twosome is no stranger to sharing the news and the love with their fans on social media. Neil and Amanda started dating in 2009 and announced their engagement on twitter on New Years 2010:
new years was all that and more. might have told @neilhimself i’d marry him but also might have been drunk. heading to breakfast.

Around the same time the following year, they tied the knot in a friend’s parlor. Merriment, drinks and delicious pie followed soon after:
hey guess what we did last night (and this time it’s legal) https://twitpic.com/3mrv0q

I am the happiest and luckiest man in the world. Thank you to @ayeletw and her family for giving us their parlour, their hospitality & love.

Previously, their good friend Jason Webley performed a street performance wedding between the two of them, with Neil as a regular guy, and Amanda as a statue bride, a role she used to play busking in the streets as her first job.
With the recent passing of Neil’s dear friend and co-author Terry Pratchett, fans are commenting what a timely surprise this announcement is. One fan says, “I am listening to Good Omens at this very moment, Gaiman’s and Pratchett’s collaboration. Life ends, life begins, the circle keeps turning.” “I bet Terry Pratchett is keeping a close eye on this kid. Lots of great spirits coming together,” says another.
From all of us here at SocialNewsDaily, our warmest congratulations, Neil and Amanda!
