David Letterman marries Regina Lasko
David Letterman drop the news on his show Monday that he married his longtime girlfriend Regina Lasko on March 19 before a judge in Choteau, Montana.
Letterman, 61 , said that he never thought he’d get married. Regina Lasko, 48, is with Dave for 23 years and have dated since 1986.
“I had avoided getting married pretty well for, like, 23 years,” Letterman said “and I … secretly felt that men who were married admired me, like I was the last of the real gunslingers.”
Letterman noted that when he headed to the courthouse in a pickup truck with Regina and their 5-year-old son, Harry, their truck got stuck in the mud.
“So now we think: Well, somebody’ll come,” he said. “No, nobody … comes along. Nobody comes along. It’s Thursday afternoon, who’s coming along, Zorro? No, nobody – so I get out of the truck and I walk two miles back to the house into a 50 mile per hour. It’s not Beverly Hills, it’s Montana, for God’s sakes. And the whole way, I’m thinking: See, smart ass, see, see, you try to get married, this is what happens.”
Dave announced the news at Monday’s taping of CBS’ “Late Show”. Watch the report below:
