How I Met Your Mother Spoilers: Could Becki Newton Be Barney’s Bride?
While Robin (Cobie Smulders)/Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) shippers the world over are hoping Barney's mysterious bride turns out to be our favorite Canadian news reporter, Becki Newton, who plays Barney's new stripper love interest Quinn, is singing a different tune.
Is it possible Barney will be walking Quinn down the aisle?

"I think she's a very good contender [to be the bride]," Becki told TV Guide. "They have not told me anything. But if I got to wear a wedding dress and marry Neil Patrick Harris — I mean, I would die."
She would die, but she might be the only one. According to Becki, the HIMYM gang might be less than thrilled with Barney's new love interest, especially when they start moving very quickly. And by that, we mean that on tonight's episode (Monday, March 19), Barney and Quinn move in together.
"[Barney's friends] think a fling with a stripper makes sense, but when they all find out that they're becoming more involved, it's a surprising situation," Becki explains. But she has faith the gang will soon realize that Barney and Quinn are a "great pairing."
"Underneath [Quinn's] conniving exterior, Barney has gotten to her heart and she has done the same to Barney. They both have a sense of adventure and a sense of fun. They're a perfect match," she gushes. But if there's one thing watching seven seasons of HIMYM has taught us, it's that seemingly perfect relationships are often nothing but (Lily and Marshall excluded, of course).
Outside of story concerns, there's a potential real-life roadblock for Quinn becoming Barney's bride: Although Becki is signed on for eight episodes (including the finale, which will again show Barney's wedding), she was recently cast in a pilot for FOX's The Goodwin Games. However, Becki said she'd be happy to come back to HIMYM anyway.
