Before they married, the couple welcomed their only child, son Harry Joseph Letterman, who was born on the 3rd November 2003. Just a few months after his birth, their son was a part of an unsuccessful kidnapping, as their house worker, Kelly Frank planned the kidnapping and demanded a ransom of $5 million.
Their marriage hit the first bump the same year they married; David was blackmailed by one of his staff members, claiming that he had affairs with her and several other staff members.
