David Letterman & Regina Lasko: Married!

David Letterman and his longtime girlfriend, Regina Lasko, got married in a courthouse ceremony near their ranch in Montana on Thursday

The 61-year-old late-night talk show host spilled the beans at the Monday taping of his CBS Late Show.

“It was about 20 minutes into the show, before the ‘Top 10′ list,” a witness tells Us Weekly.

Letterman shared, “I hear Bruce Willis got married this weekend. There’s another wedding I’d like to mention. We got married in Montana. Went to the Justice of the Peace.”

Congrats to the happy couple!!! They have a five-year-old son, Harry.

UPDATE: Click inside to read Dave‘s full quote…

“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?… So now, we get ready to go and we’ve got to drive into the courthouse and it’s muddy, and we’re supposed to be there at 2, and it’s me, Regina and Harry in the truck, in the pickup truck…So we get two miles from the house and we get stuck in the mud – I mean, turn the truck over, stuck in the mud. So now we think, ‘Well, somebody will comeā€” 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 an hour wind. 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. See, well, you’ve got nobody to blame but yourself. Could have happened any other day, but you wait now, see, this is what you get.’ So then we get in the car and Harry says, ‘Are we still going into town?’ and I said, ‘Yes, we are,’ and he gets very upset because mom had told him if I wasn’t back in an hour, the deal was off.”

    Vicki, I hate to break this to you but I don’t think their son was breaking any laws before they got married.

  • lakers fan in boston

    i find him pretty corny sometimes but most of the times i watch his show, best late night imo
    i always thought he was married or something…

  • debra77

    I love hearing this .. Congrats David.. the king of late night. Oh and his son is legal. He has mom and a dad that he sees everyday. I know so many Married couples whose kids cant say the same. Marriage is a beautiful thing. But it does not mean you are a great parent or partner. People have a choice. and thank God for that.

  • hrhkat

    dave is so funny, its about time, that kid was probably like, “dad, are you and mom married?” and he probably felt obligated, which is good, I hope brangelina get married soon…

  • dabu

    Well, his son was always legal. Better not married and happy and loving your family than miserable and married due to folks like you who are judgmental guilting people into marrying. Yeah David for doing things your way!.

  • Twilight Series

    Congrats to them all, sweet couple. These two at least have been together for a while so marriage is the right thing to do. Unlike the likes of Bruce Willis and the such. Here’s a cool pic of Regina Lasko.

  • claudette

    Good for you. I pray that you will be happy and have a good life. This will be good for your son Harry. Congratulations.

  • amber

    LOL! When I read this I just chuckled. David Letterman makes me laugh. We have been watching him since the early 90′s and he always makes us laugh! So congratulations Dave, Regina and Harry! LOL!

    I just have a sense that Dave is a very decent man who appears is a stand by his woman type of guy – 23 years isn’t anything to sneeze at whether they were married or not. It was the right time – and he has made his son very happy. There isn’t any doubt that this little boy is being raised in a loving home by two loving parents.

    Yeah Harry might have asked if hey were married, but it is more likely that they realized then that there wasn’t a reason anymore why they weren’t.

    When you think about it is likely they are in one of the best phases of love.

    Good for them and may they always remain a happy threesome!

    Congrats to the happy couple!

    It’s a sordid affair. How did our society ever come to this? Applause for this? God have mercy on our children if this is the example that is publicly lauded. Amusing? NO. Sad? Yes.
