Holiday Engagements
Engaged for Christmas
Hugh Hefner is going to be a married man once again, this time with a bride 60 years his junior. Yes, you read right: Sixty.

The Playboy mogul announced via Twitter that he and 24-year-old Playmate Crystal Harris will be tying the knot, marking the third marriage for the youthful 84-year-old Hefner. In the announcement, Hefner proclaimed:

After the movie tonight, Crystal & I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve … When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory.

He then made things 100% clear for anyone who might have doubted the meaning of the ring, stating: “Yes, the ring I gave Crystal is an engagement ring. I didn’t mean to make a mystery out of it. A very merry Christmas to all.”

Hefner isn’t staying a bachelor for long, as his most recent marriage to Playmate Kimberly Conrad officially ended in 2009 despite the duo being separated since 1998. Before that, Hef’s first marriage ended in 1959 and he was working his Hef magic since.
