David Letterman Takes the Plunge!

After over twenty years and one child together, David Letterman decided to finally make it official and marry his longtime girlfriend, Regina Lasko, on March 19 in Montana.

Dave announced the big news on his show Monday night, telling the audience that he never really thought he would make the big move.

"I had avoided getting married pretty good for, like, 23 years," he admitted, "and I ... secretly felt that men who were married admired me, like I was the last of the real gunslingers."

Dave joked that, even up until the last minute, it seemed like fate was trying to tell him something, as his truck got stuck in the mud on the way to the courthouse.

"So now we think: Well, somebody'll come," he said. "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 per hour. 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."

But Dave and Regina, along with son Harry, 5, finally made it to the justice of the peace and said their "I dos."

Congrats, Dave. We knew you could do it.
