David Letterman Marries Regina Lasko

First, Bruce Willis marries his Demi Moore clone, Emma Heming. Then Harrison Ford pops the question to longtime love Calista flockhart.

Now David Letterman and longtime girlfriend Regina Lasko have gotten hitched, the mother of his 5-year-old son, got hitched in a courthouse ceremony near their Montana ranch, Letterman announced during the taping of his CBS "Late Show" yesterday.

"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 10 years,'" joked Letterman.

“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?'" he said

The family's truck got stuck in the mud en route to the courthouse, he said. Jeepers. Letterman "walked two miles back to the house in 50 mph wind. It's not Beverly Hills — it's Montana."

"And the whole way, I'm thinking, 'See ... you try to get married and this is what happens.'"

Can you believe it took David Letterman this long to get married? What is it with men?

The host of The Late Show with David Letterman and Lasko tied the knot Thursday evening, according to Us Weekly, after more than 10 years of dating.

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!
