Lester had then revealed that the secret to making a happy marriage work is to “laugh.”
“We laugh a lot, we really do. I can be silly, she can be sillier. We just laugh through things and we know that everything, tough times will be a story at some point and boy have I put her through some tough times with this job,” Lester said. “She understands that when the bell rings, I like to answer it, when the big story’s going on, I want to be there… I love her to death, she’s has been so wonderful, she knows this job is going to bring a lot of late-night phone calls, but she's there for me and that means an awful lot.”
