Hugh Hefner’s on-again-off-again engagement to Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris is back on. And with the two saying “I do” in just a few weeks, the 86-year-old’s ex Bridget Marquardt couldn’t be happier.

“I just want him to be happy,” Marquardt told Celebuzz at the Cell Phones For Soldiers and Voli Light Vodkas event in Hollywood on Thursday. “So, if he’s happy, then I’m very happy for ’em.”

And who says exes can’t be friends?

Despite their breakup in 2008 (which included Hef’s other “girls,” Kendra Wilkinson and Holly Madison), Marquardt is still on the VIP invite list for the New Year’s Eve wedding.

But will she make it to Hef’s big day?

“I am invited,” she revealed.”But, it’s New Year’s Eve, so I’m not sure I’ll be able to make it. But, we’ll see. We’ll see how things work out.”

Hefner’s 26-year-old bride-to-be, who’s been famously dubbed the “runaway bride” after she called off their first engagement just five days before they were set to wed in June 2011, will be wife No. 3 for the media mogul.

And the infamous playboy isn’t the only one who’s found love after The Girls Next Door moved out of the mansion. Marquardt has been dating her director beau Nick Carpenter for four years, and Madison is expecting her first child with boyfriend Pasquale Rotella any day now.

“I’m super excited! So, does that make me an auntie in some sort of way? Right?” laughed Marquardt of her BFF’s bundle of joy.
