Harry Joseph Letterman’s Biography
Harry Letterman was born on November 3, 2003, in North Salem, New York, USA.
He attended high school in New York, before proceeding to Brown University to pursue a degree.
Early Life and Birth Story
An amusing incident happened at Harry Joseph Letterman’s birth.
This event has become famous as the “hilarious birth story of Harry.”
His father David recounted on the Late Night show with Seth Myers, how he accompanied Harry’s mom to the hospital early in the morning and stayed beside her for the entire day, but by 8 pm, nothing had happened.
Upon hearing the doctor ask if anyone wanted to eat, David was relieved and went outside to get food from a nearby Chinese restaurant.
As he headed to the break room to have his meal, little did he know that Regina had gone into labor.
Unfortunately, he was unable to hear her from the labor room, and Regina was extremely angry that her partner wasn’t present with her.
Even to this day, David mentions that his wife is still upset about the incident.
However, Harry was eventually born at 11:55 on Nov. 3, 2003, in New York.
Family & Parents
Harry was born into a family of 3 and is the only child of his parents
His Father David Letterman is a famous television host, comedian, writer, and producer who has had an illustrious career in late-night television shows spanning over 33 years.
David was 56 when Harry was born, and his son’s arrival reportedly changed his perspective on family and fatherhood.
Harry Joseph Letterman’s mother Regina Lasko, on the other hand, was born on 20 November 1960 in the USA.
She is a private individual who has largely avoided the spotlight throughout her life.
David and Regina started dating while David was still living with his then-partner, Merrill Markoe.
The two were partners for over 23 years before they finally decided to get married.
The couple got married on March 19, 2009, in a secret wedding ceremony at the Teton County Courthouse in Choteau, Montana, near the family’s massive ranch.
They tied the knot when their son Harry was almost 6 years old, and Harry was a guest at the wedding.
According to David, he would have missed the private courthouse wedding ceremony as his car got stuck in the mud just two miles from his house.
However, he managed to get to the venue in time for the exchange of vows.
Harry Letterman is 20 years old.
As of 2023, 20-year-old Harry Joseph Letterman is 6’1 tall.
Harry Letterman today is currently not a wealthy individual as he still lives with his parents and has yet to establish his own career.
However, it is highly likely that he will inherit his father’s fortune when the time comes.
In 2005, a mere 16 months after Harry was born, he was almost kidnapped.
Kelly Allen Frank, a Montana painter employed at Letterman’s residence, posed a serious threat to their son as he attempted to abduct him.
Luckily for David and his wife, the kidnapping attempt was unsuccessful.
It was revealed that Kelly planned a scheme to kidnap Harry Joseph, Letterman’s 16-month-old son, and their nanny for a $5 million ransom.
On the day he planned, he resumed at the Letterman’s residence as normal.
However, upon reaching the house, Kelly neglected his assigned duties to initiate the plot, involving the baby’s nanny and a friend who disapproved of the idea.
Fortunately, the friend anonymously alerted the police promptly, allowing them to thwart the attempted kidnapping before it could unfold.
Despite the thwarted attempt, the anonymous informant faced charges of solicitation to kidnap.
Allen was sentenced to 10 years in Montana State Prison but managed to escape in 2007, only to be recaptured shortly after.
He was released on parole in 2014, then he later faced another arrest a year later for violating parole terms.
Where is Now?
Harry Letterman is at Brown University in Rhode Island pursuing his undergraduate degree.
Fans of Harry Joseph Letterman, who are hoping that he will follow in his father’s footsteps and become a comedian and talk show host, may be disappointed to learn that he is already 20 years old and has only appeared on television once – on his father’s talk show.
