Hugh Hefner Is Cradle Robbing Again: Engaged To 24-Year-Old Playmate


Hugh Hefner and Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris, 24, are engaged, the media mogul confirmed Christmas morning on Twitter.

The 84-year-old Playboy founder posted, “After the movie tonight, Crystal & I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve,” adding, “When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory.” He then clarified by tweeting, “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.”

Harris met Hef in 2008 at one of the Playboy Mansion’s Halloween parties. The model and singer was last year’s December Playmate and this year’s Miss January.

This is Hefner’s third marriage. In 1959, he divorced his first wife, Mildred Williams, after 10 years of marriage, and in 2009, he officially called it quits with his second wife, Playmate Kimberly Conrad (the two had married in1989 and separated in 1998). Hefner and Conrad had two sons together during their relationship, Marston Glenn (now 20) and Cooper Bradford (19).

Last month, Hefner, who had also been dating twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon during his time with Harris, told Fox News that he believes monogamy was invented along the way to take care of children.

We just wonder how his kids feel that their step mom is only four years older. [Via MTV]
