Regina Lasko is the wife of American television host, comedian, writer, producer, and actor – funny man David Letterman. After dating for over 23 years – the couple tied the knot in 2003.
The couple met at the sets of David’s Late Show. Back then, Regina was the production manager of the show. After having an affair for over a decade, the couple got married. They began dating back in 1986. Letterman spilled the beans about his marriage to Lasko in his ‘Late Show’. He joked that his truck got stuck in the mud on his way to his wedding.
Letterman and Lasko have a son, Harry Joseph Letterman. Harry was born in 2003. Five years after his birth, his mom finally decided to walk down the aisle with her then boyfriend. The couple got married at the Teton Country Courthouse in Choteau, Montana, in a simple ceremony. Regina donned a navy blue suit and a peach-colored rose corsage. The nuptials were a bit of a surprise for the onlookers. David joked about it on the show saying, ‘I had avoided getting married pretty good for, like, 23 years.’ He also said, “People say, ‘Geez, Dave, you were together so long. Does it feel any different?” “And I say, “Yeah. It does.”
David Letterman has been married twice. He was previously married to Michelle Cook. The former couple divorced in the year 1977.
David Letterman announced that he was retiring in the year 2015 in the taping of the last episode of his show. In his three-decades-long career in entertainment, he has become perhaps the most influential comedy talk show personality. Rumors have it, the main cause of his retirement is a promise made to his wife, Regina back in 2009.
The promise was probably made because he had an affair with Stephanie Birkitt, a staff member of the ‘Late Show’. Even though the affair took place before Letterman and Regina got married, the scandal upset her. Ever since, Lasko has maintained a low profile.
David famously announced his affair with Stephanie on his show in 2009. Reportedly, he was blackmailed to do so. About the damage done to Regina and his relationship because of his announcement, he said:
"Because you think an explosion has taken place and you’re looking at the shards and you say, ‘Well, can we put this back together?’ ” Letterman said. “And by God, maybe you can put it back together. And maybe it won’t be the same, but maybe it will be different, and maybe it can even be better in a different way.”
