In December 2009 she was the Playboy Playmate, and one year later Crystal Harris has become the soul mate of magazine magnate Hugh Hefner.
As the happy couple had let their love story unfold in front of the eyes of fans throughout Season 6 of the E! series The Girls Next Door, the publisher chose the public forum of Twitter to openly profess his intention to say “I do”:
“After the movie tonight, Crystal & I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve.”
His comment arousing both curiosity and confusion, Hefner clarified his sentimental statement hours later with two Tweets on the social networking site, proclaiming:
“When I gave Crystal the ring, she burst into tears. This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory.”
“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.”
Currently enjoying their first days as fiances, the pair have yet to announce a date for their walk down the aisle. The nuptials will be the third for Hef, who was previously married to Mildred Williams from 1949 – 1959 and to Kimberly Conrad from 1989 until March 2010.
