"On Thursday, at 3 PM, March 19, 2009 at the Teton County Courthouse in Choteau, Montana, I was married to Regina Lasko. Regina and I began dating in February of 1986, and I said, ‘Well, things are going pretty good, let’s just see what happens in about ten years.’ I had avoided getting married pretty good for, like, 23 years, and I - honestly, whether this happened or not - I secretly felt that men who were married admired me ... like I was the last of the real gunslingers, you know what I’m saying?"

In 2007, David Letterman told Oprah Winfrey that his son Harry has made a "huge difference" in his life - but doesn't always get his sense of humor.

Said Dave, "Mommy has to tell him a lot that I'm just teasing."

Prior to marrying Regina Lasko, Letterman was previously married for seven years to his college sweetheart, Michelle Cook. Congrats to the couple!

UPDATE: Regina Lasko found herself back in the news in September 2009 after Letterman's affairs with members of his staff became public knowledge.

Dave had been with Regina Lasko for 20 years, but apparently carried on at least one serious relationship with a Late Show staffer. He said as much.

The woman, Stephanie Birkitt, later dated Robert Halderman, who is accused of trying to blackmail Letterman for $2 million to keep quiet about it.
