David_letterman OK, there’s definitely something in the water.

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 Regina Lasko, 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?
