Hugh Hefner, 86, Finally Weds 26-Year-Old Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris

Hugh Hefner stopped his runaway bride, Crystal Harris, long enough to say “I do” on New Year’s Eve.

The 86-year-old founder of Playboy married his much younger 26-year-old bride in a small ceremony at the Playboy Mansion. “Today is the day I become Mrs. Hugh Hefner,” Crystal tweeted. “Feeling very happy, lucky, and blessed.”

Hef also took to Twitter to boast of his new bride. “Crystal & I married on New Year’s Eve in the Mansion with Keith (brother) as my Best Man,” he wrote. “Love that girl!”

It’s been a long road to the alter for the on-again, off-again couple of four years. Harris, who famously called off their first engagement back in June 2011 only five days before the scheduled affair, later bashed Hef in the media and blamed his poor sexual prowess for the breakup. But, despite their bumpy road, Crystal believes the second time is the charm for her and Hugh.

“When the wedding didn’t work out the first time, it was because of me,” she told Us Weekly. “I needed to explore out there and take the time away [from Hef and the Mansion]. The time away really helped make me realize that where I’m meant to be is here with Hef. Our relationship is better than it ever has been before. I’m very happy and Hef’s very happy and we’re excited.”

After the happy ceremony under a rose-covered staircase, Hugh and Crystal, who wore a gorgeous light pink gown by Romona Keveza, danced the night away with famous friends Joe Don Rooney of Rascall Flatts, Kiss alum Gene Simmons, and actor Jon Lovitz.

The marriage is Crystal’s first and Hugh’s third. Do you think the third time will be the charm for this notorious bachelor?
