Regina Lasko, longtime girlfriend of David Letterman, is now his wife. The couple were married on March 19th in Montana.
Lasko, 48, is a former production manager. She and Letterman have been in a relationship since 1986, and have a 5-year-old son, Harry, who also attended the ceremony – see video discussion of wedding by Dave here.
Letterman announced his marriage to Lasko Monday night during his opening monologue. (View video below)
“I had avoided getting married pretty good for, like, 23 years,” he said during The Late Show taping, “and I … secretly felt that men who were married admired me, like I was the last of the real gunslingers.”
This is Letterman’s second marriage. He divorced his first wife in 1977.
UPDATE June 10, 2009 - Letterman delivered a controversial monologue last night on his show. He trashed Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter. The Alaska governor is fighting mad today and is taking her wrath to her Facebook page.
