Newlyweds Hugh Hefner and Crystal Harris rang in the new year with an intimate wedding ceremony at the Playboy Mansion.
The 86-year-old Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner is indeed off the market as he changes his relationship status to married. His bride is the 26-year-old Playboy model and Hugh’s long-time girlfriend, Crystal Harris. Playboy confirmed the nuptials to E! Online, which further reported that the ceremony consisted of only a small number of close friends and relatives. KISS’ Gene Simmons and wife Shannon Tweed, comedian Jon Lovitz, Rascal Flatts singer Joe Don Rooney, and Tiffany Fallon, the 2005 Playmate of the Year, were among the celebrity attendees and there was a special performance by jazz singer Brenna Whitaker.
Hefner first tweeted a photo of the couple standing beneath an altar decorated with flowers, which he captioned, “Crystal and I married on New Year’s Eve in the Mansion with Keith as my best man. Love that girl!”
Previously, E! Online reported Harris had ended her engagement to Hefner five days before the pair were planned to wed in 2011, but they have since been back together since June 2012. She now marks Hefner’s third marriage, and he currently has two children with each of his ex-wives.
