Hef Hitched: Hugh Hefner, 83, To Marry 24-Year-Old
Big announcements from the Playboy Mansion's Bermuda triangle of sexuality, peacocks and water hazards: Hugh Hefner, 84, has asked his 24-year-old girlfriend Crystal Harris to be his wife. Hopefully this means another House Bunny movie is in the works. "The eyes are the nipples of the face." Remember that.
Hef tweeted the engagement, "When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory." Harris followed with a heartwarming, "Hef and I are Trending on @twitter :)"
According to E!, the couple have been dating for almost two years and Hefner started dropping hints in April, "It's certainly possible... I certainly care enough for her…I certainly love her enough." He also said, "I'm having more fun than I did when I was 20."
This will be Harris' first marriage and a third for Hefner who has four children ranging in age from 19-58. A wedding date has not yet been announced.
